You must be a science student to study Communication Technology Under Engineering in Nigeria Universities, and that’s can only be possible if you meet admission requirements. This page literally covers answers to questions related to O level and A-level requirement.

That is, the WAEC subject combination (requirements), JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements), s, Special consideration (waivers) and the required documents for admission into Nigeria universities. In other to help you avoid having difficulties with getting admission in Nigeria Universities, we have some post that will be of benefit to you. You can always ignore!

 

WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Communication Technology 

The subjects needed to study Communication Technology in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The O level requirement, that is, the required WAEC subject combination for Communication Technology must include:

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics
  3. Economics
  4. A trade subject

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Communication Technology 

Knowing JAMB subjects for Communication Technology is not enough. You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just a piece of advice) because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic… Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND or Predegree.

These are JAMB UTME subject combinations (subjects to write in jamb) to study Communication Technology are

  1. Maths
  2. Economics
  3. Anyone of Account, Commerce and Government

 

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Communication Technology
A’ Level passes/ND and HND in relevant fields into 200 and 300 levels

 

If for some reasons you are not satisfied or cannot meet up with this admission requirement that is the subject combination above, perhaps you should consider other Communication Technology  similar courses or take a look at Polytechnic or College of Education related course subject requirements. You can also study online with a foreign university right from your bedroom or apply for a scholarship to study abroad. Education is now a choice. And please before you make a decision on which University to choose, please consider

  • The Fees
  • The Distance
  • The Environment
  • The Degree Certificate
  • Vulnerability to Strike
  • Acceptable O Level and A-level Result
  • Academic Calendar

See useful guides on how to choose a course and university

These are the list of Universities offering Communication Technology in Nigeria

According to 2019/2020 JAMB Brochure, only Bells University of Technology, Otta offers Communication Technology

Cut-off Mark for Communication Technology course

The cut-off mark for Communication Technology 180. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Communication Technology is a good course and you can also check the top best engineering courses. This should not influence you. Follow your heart or seek my counsel.

Communication Technology is how many years course and under which faculty?

Depending on your mode of entry, Communication Technology is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Communication Technology is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.

 

Can a commercial or art student study Communication Technology?

No! Communication Technology is a pure science course and not suitable for commercial or art student. But if you have required subject combination in your O level result, you can go for it if that is the course you desire to study. If you’re still in secondary school, you may find it difficult to change subjects during WAEC registration because your schools may go against it. The alternative way to write the required subjects combination for Communication Technology is through GCE.

 

Where can I work with a Degree in Communication Technology 
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Communication Technology. I urge you to also find out where you can work with the degree. Please take your time to read The Act of Getting a Job – so you would know what you’re up against after graduating. Career opportunities will be added soon.

 

The SSCE O level and A-level subject needed to study Communication Technology have been listed above. Some Universities may accept D7 or E8 in some a compulsory subject instead of Credit. And some may accept or reject two sittings. That is combinations of WAEC, NECO, or GCE results. You will know more when you take a look at the special consideration (waiver) for this course if available. Please take note that when you see Check, it simply means the special consideration for this course had been merge with a related course to save space.
