JAMB subject combination for ALL courses (updated)

The most important thing to check as a UTME candidate is JAMB subject combination. You don’t want to get it wrong.

Why? Nothing decreases your chances of admission faster than selecting the wrong subject combination in JAMB.

By the way, see my post on 2021 admission into Nigerian universities. I mentioned six things you should expect in it. Having them checked will help you get admission into school this year.

Many candidates have been left stranded in the middle of admissions because they chose wrong subject combination for their course.

I take it that you already selected the right subjects at o’level (SSCE) before reading this post. Your teachers in secondary school definitely would have guided you through that before you wrote SSCE.

So now we know how important picking the right subject combination is, one may ask.

What is the correct JAMB subject combination for my course?

That’s what this post is about.

Although JAMB provided a brochure to help candidate prepare for admission into higher institution, it is not detailed enough.

Because of this, many students don’t even find their course on JAMB brochure.

By the time you go through this post, you’ll have no issues with subject combinations again. No matter the course you chose to study.

More importantly, you will get admission into your preferred school and course.

And please share this post when you finish because you will find it helpful.
