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.

Have you read this?

Can a science or art student study International Relations?

Yes! If you are a Science, Commercial or an Art student, you can study International Relations 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.

Another alternative way to register the required subject combinations for International Relations is through GCE.
