WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology
You’re expected to have at least 5 credits on the required WAEC subject combination needed to study Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology in Nigeria universities. This subject combination is also applicable to other O’level exams such as NECO AND GCE. The O level requirement, that is, the required WAEC subject combination for Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology must include:
- English Language
- 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 Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology. So now that you know the compulsory O level subject requirement to study Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology, let also look at JAMB UTME and Direct requirements.
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology
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 Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology that you must register (English must be included because it is compulsory even though it may not be listed among the JAMB subjects below), 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– English Language is compulsory. 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 Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology. If you’re having troubles with JAMB UTME, maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND, HND or Predegree!..
Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology
If you’re one of those seeking admission into the University to further your studies, in addition to the required WAEC subjects combination for Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology, you are expected to have:
(i) ‘A’ level credit in two of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics
(ii) ND Upper Credit in Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology

Can a science or art student study Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology?
No! If you are a Commercial or Art student, you can’t study Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology at the university. This is a pure science course. But if you are good with Science subjects, you can take your chances I won’t discourage you 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 Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology is through GCE.
