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

 

You must be a science student with a good background science subjects for you to study Industrial Chemistry 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 Industrial Chemistry

You’re expected to have at least 5 credits on the required WAEC subject combination needed to study Industrial Chemistry 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 Industrial Chemistry must include:

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics
  3. Chemistry
  4. Physics
  5. Biology/Agric Science
  6. 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 Industrial Chemistry. So now that you know the compulsory O level subject requirement to study Industrial Chemistry, let also look at JAMB UTME and Direct requirements.

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Industrial Chemistry

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 Industrial Chemistry 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– 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 Industrial Chemistry. 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 Industrial Chemistry must include:

  1. Chemistry
  2. Mathematics
  3. Any of Physics/Biology/Agric Science

 

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

If you’re one of those seeking admission into the University to further your studies, in addition to the required WAEC subjects combination for Industrial Chemistry, you are expected to have;

(i) Two ‘A’ level passes in Chemistry and Mathematics
(ii) OND in Science Technology or ND in relevant field with UTME requirements

 

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 Industrial Chemistry, don’t give up. You should consider other Industrial Chemistry 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

Cut-off Mark for Industrial Chemistry course

As you can see, more than one University offers Industrial Chemistry. This means the cut-off mark for Industrial Chemistry varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Industrial Chemistry is a good course and you can also check the top best science courses. This should not influence you. Follow your heart or seek my counsel.

 

Industrial Chemistry is how many years course?

In Nigeria, if you gain admission to study Industrial Chemistry at the university through JAMB UTME, you will study Industrial Chemistry 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.

 

Industrial Chemistry is under which faculty in Nigeria?

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

 

Have you read this?

Can a commercial or an art student study Industrial Chemistry?

No! If you are a Commercial or an Art student, you cannot Industrial Chemistry at the university because it is a pure science course which need a good background on science subjects. To avoid discouragement, you can go for this course if you wish 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 Industrial Chemistry is through GCE.
