This page contains official WAEC and JAMB subject combination (admission requirements) forAnatomy, including the List of Nigeria Universities Offering this Course, A level requirements and much more…



  • JAMB officially classified this course under Faculty/School/College of Medical, Pharmaceutical and Health Science.
  • Probable Degree type – [M.B.B.S., MB.B.Ch.B., B.D.S., B.Ch.D., Pharm.B, B.SC]


You must be a Science student with a good background in Science subjects for you to study this course 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 Anatomy

You’re expected to have at least 5 credits on the required WAEC subject combination needed to study Anatomy in Nigeria universities.

The required subject combination must include:

  1. English Language
  2. Physics
  3. Mathematics
  4. Chemistry
  5. Biology
  6. A trade subject

The above WAEC subject combination is also applicable to other O’level examinations such as NECO and GCE. So now that you know the compulsory O level requirement to study Anatomy, let also look at UTME and Direct requirements and course descriptions.


JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Anatomy

Prepare yourself well so you can score above 200 in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just a piece of advice) because anything short of this score may deny you 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.

JAMB UTME subject combinations (subjects to write in jamb) to study Anatomy are

  1. Biology
  2. Mathematics
  3. Physics or Chemistry


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

Two ‘A’ level passes chosen from Biology, Chemistry and Physics in addition to UTME requirement.


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 taking 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

Cut-off Mark for Anatomy

As you can see above, there are over 26 Universities offering Anatomy. This means the cut-off mark for this Anatomy varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Anatomy is a good course and you can also check out the top best science courses. This should not influence you. Follow your heart or seek my counsel.


Anatomy is how many years course?

Anatomy is a four to five years course


Anatomy is under which faculty?

Anatomy is under the Faculty/School/College of Medical, Pharmaceutical and Health Science.


What is Anatomy course all about?

Another name for Anatomy is the human body. It is the study of organs functions, tissue structures in the human body, animals and other organisms. You were taught biology is secondary school right Anatomy is the great grandfather of biology.

Anatomy is a very good course to those who have a keen interest in science, particularly in human anatomy. Studying this course gives you an in-depth understanding of the structure and the function of the human body, animals and organism, their relationship and organization etc.. You will also learn oral and communication skills needed for research purpose..


Special Consideration

The SSCE O level and A-level subject combination (requirements) had been listed above but, 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.
