On this page, I will guide you on the required O level subject combination to study Political Science. if you are a returning visitor, you can skip reading repetitive paragraphs.

 

You must be an Art student with a good background in Art subjects for you to study Political Science 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 admission requirement.

That is, the WAEC subject combination (requirements), JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements), Direct Entry requirements, Special consideration (waivers) and the required screening 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 Political Science

You’re expected to have at least 5 credits on the required WAEC subject combination needed to study Political Science in Nigeria universities. These subjects combination are also applicable to other O’level exams such as NECO AND GCE. The O level requirement, that is, the required WAEC subject combination for Political Science must include:

  1. English Language
  2. Government/History
  3. Any other three subjects from Arts/Social Science with at least a pass in Mathematics.
  4. A trade subject

don't know what to study

These listed subjects are compulsory for anyone writing WAEC and other O level examinations. I will advise you to include a Language in your O level subjects. For the record, if you are one of those students seeking admission into any universities, college or polytechnics in Lagos State, Yoruba Language is compulsory for Political Science. So now that you know the compulsory O level subject requirement to study Political Science, let also look at JAMB UTME and Direct requirements.

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Political Science

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is a body responsible for your admission into the University or other institutions. Now I’m going to show you the compulsory JAMB subjects for Political Science that you must register and I will honestly advise you to aim for a score of 200 and above in JAMB UTME instead of 180 to be on a safe side because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider the College of Education or Polytechnic… Read how to answer and pass JAMB once.

Please note– If Mathematics is not listed among the Jamb subject on this post, then Mathematics is not compulsory for this course. JAMB is not the only option to gain admission into Nigerian Universities to study Political Science. If you’re having troubles with JAMB UTME, maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND, HND or Predegree. JAMB UTME subject combination to study Political Science must include:

  1. Government/History
  2. Two other Social Science or Arts subject

 

I want you to read this

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Political Science

If you’re one of those seeking admission into the University to further your studies, in addition to the required WAEC subjects combination for Political Science, you are expected to have Two A’ level passes to include Government or History.

 

If you have your O level result already and the subjects you have is not the same with the admission requirement that is the required O level subject combinations to study Political Science, don’t give up. You should consider other Political Science similar courses or take a look at Polytechnic or College of Education related courses.

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 read useful guides on how to choose a course and university

These are the list of Universities offering Political Science in Nigeria

  1. Adeleke University Ede (AUE)
  2. Federal University, Lokoja, Kogi State (FULOKOJA)
  3. Federal University, Kashere, Gombe State (FUKASHERE)
  4. Federal University, Wukari, Taraba State (FUWUKARI)
  5. Federal University, Ndifu-Alike, Ebonyi State (FUNAI)
  6. Federal University, Otuoke, Bayelsa (FUOTUOKE)
  7. Plateau State University Bokkos (PLASU)

Cut-off Mark for Political Science course

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

 

Political Science is how many years course?

In Nigeria, if you gain admission to study Political Science at the university through JAMB UTME, you will study Political Science for four years. If you gain admission through direct entry, you will study this course for three years. And of course there is room for more years if you have extension; the aftermath of carryover courses.

 

Political Science is under which faculty in Nigeria?

According to JAMB, a body responsible for your admission into the University or other institutions, Political Science is under the Faculty/School/College of Art but may be under a different faculty in some universities in Nigeria.

 

Have you read this?

Can a science or commercial student study Political Science?

Yes! If you are a science or a commercial student, you can study Political Science at the university provided you have the required subjects combination in your O level result. If you’re still in secondary school, you may find it difficult to change subjects to fit your desired course during WAEC registration because some schools may go against it.

Also, during WAEC or NECO registration make sure you know which subjects are been registered for you because some secondary schools are ignorant about the importance of O level requirements for university courses. Another alternative way to register the required subject combinations for Political Science is through GCE.

 

Special Consideration

Now I am confident that you know the compulsory subjects needed to study Political Science in WAEC. But note this — 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 Political Science below if available. Please take note that when you see Check, it simply means the special consideration for Political Science had been merge with a related course to save space.
