You’re expected to have at least 5 credits on the required WAEC subject combination needed to study Art and Design in Nigeria polytechnics. This subject combination is also applicable to other O’level exams such as NECO AND GCE. The required WAEC subject combination (O level requirement) for Art and Design must include:
English Language, Fine Art Mathematics and any two of the following: History/Government Chemistry/Physical Science, Biology/Agricultural Science, Literature in English, Clothing and Textiles, Religious Knowledge, Economics/Commerce Geography, Home Economics
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 polytechnics in Lagos State, Yoruba Language is compulsory for Art and Design. So now that you know the compulsory O level subject requirement to study Art and Design, let also look at JAMB UTME and Direct requirements.
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Art and Design
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 Art and Design 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 150 so that you can easily gain admission into any Polytechnics. 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 Art and Design. If you’re having troubles with JAMB UTME, maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND, HND or Predegree!..
Fine Art and any two of History, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology and a Nigeria Language.

Can a science or commercial student study Art and Design?
Yes! If you are a science or a commercial student, you can study Art and Design at the university provided you have the required subjects combination in your O level result.
