At least a credit pass in English Language is compulsory.
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 Urban and Regional Planning. So now that you know the compulsory O level subject requirement to study Urban and Regional Planning, let also look at JAMB UTME and Direct requirements.
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Urban and Regional Planning
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 Urban and Regional Planning 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.

Can a commercial or art student study Urban and Regional Planning?
No! If you are a Commercial or an Art student, you cannot study Urban and Regional Planning at the polytechnic 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.
