WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Sociology
You’re expected to have at least 5 credits on the required WAEC subject combination needed to study Sociologyin 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 Sociology must include:
One Science subject
Any Arts or Social Science subject
A trade subject
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 Sociology. So now that you know the compulsory O level subject requirement to study Sociology, let also look at JAMB UTME and Direct requirements.
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Sociology
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 Sociology 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 Sociology. 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 Sociology must include:
Plus two other Social Science/Arts subject
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 Sociology, don’t give up. You should consider other Sociology similar courses or take a look at Polytechnic or College of Education related courses.
In Nigeria, if you gain admission to study Sociology at the university through JAMB UTME, you will study Sociology 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.
Sociology is under which faculty in Nigeria?
According to JAMB, a body responsible for your admission into the University or other institutions, Sociology is under the Faculty/School/College of Art but may be under a different faculty in some universities in Nigeria.
Can a science or commercial student study Sociology?
Yes! If you are a science or a commercial student, you can study Sociology 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 Sociology is through GCE.
Now I am confident that you know the compulsory subjects needed to study Sociology 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.
