This page contains official WAEC and JAMB subject combination (admission requirements) for Radiography, 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 Radiography

You’re expected to have at least 5 credits on the required WAEC subject combination needed to study Radiography 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 Radiography, let also look at UTME and Direct requirements and course descriptions


JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Radiography

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 combination (subjects to write in jamb) to study Radiography are

  1. Chemistry
  2. Biology
  3. Physics


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

(i) Two ‘A’ level passes chosen from Physics, Chemistry and Biology


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

  2. University of Lagos (UNILAG)
  3. University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID)
  4. Usumanu Danfodiyo University (UDUSOK)
  5. Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka (UNIZIK)
  6. University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN)
  7. Bayero University, Kano.

Cut-off Mark for Radiography

As you can see above, there are over 7 Universities offering Radiography. This means the cut-off mark for this Radiography varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here.  Radiography is a good course though not listed among the top best science courses. This does not mean you should change your mindset towards this course. Follow your heart or seek my counsel.


Radiography is how many years course?

Radiography is a four to five years course


Radiography is under which faculty?

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


What is Radiography course all about: 

Another name for Radiography is Diagnostic Imaging. A student who studies Radiography is equipped with the knowledge of how to diagnose and treat various type of illness using powerful technologies such as radiography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and positron emission tomography.

Radiographers are able to interpret medical images produced by these machines. Diagnostic radiographers also work closely with medical practitioners with or without supervision in a wide range of clinical settings.. …


Special Consideration

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.
