Jamb & Waec Subject Combination For Computer Science

Last Updated on December 10, 2019 by Oyeniyi Michael Barry

In this article, I will reveal to you the Correct Jamb UTME subject combination, Waec/O’level Subject combination & Direct Entry (DE) requirement for Computer Science in Faculty/College of Science. Also, we’ll also show you the special consideration (waiver) for the course.

Before proceeding too far, it’s imperative you know that you must be a science student with a good background of science subjects for you to study Computer Science in Nigerian Universities, and studying computer science can only be possible if you meet admission requirements as specified. In other words, this page literally covers answers to questions related to jamb subject combination for computer science, waec/olevel subject combination for computer science and A-level admission requirements.

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.

Jamb & waec subject combination for computer science

How Many Years Is Computer Science?

It Takes a total of 4 Years To Study Computer Science In any Nigerian universities; On this note, if you gain admission to study Computer Science at any university through JAMB UTME, you will study Computer Science for four 4 years. while those who gain admission through direct entry will study this course for just three (3) years.

Computer Science is under which faculty in Nigeria?

In most universities, Computer Science and Informatics is under the Faculty/School/College of Science but may also fall under a different faculty in some universities in Nigeria.

Cut-off Mark for Computer Science  course

The cutoff mark for Computer Science and Informatics varies across many universities although some universities place the cutoff mark at 200. You can check th universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Computer Science and Informatics is a distinct course. you can also check the top best science courses. This should not make you change your course as all courses have their own area of authority.

WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Computer Science and Informatics

Aside from jamb subject combination for computer science, You’re also expected to have at least 5 credits on the WAEC subject combination required to study Computer Science and Informatics in Nigerian universities. These subjects combination are also applicable to other O’level exams such as NECO AND GCE. The required WAEC subject combination for Computer Science and Informatics should strictly include:

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics
  3. Physics
  4. Plus two other science subjects
  5. A trade subject

The listed subjects are strictly for anyone writing WAEC and all other O level examinations. I will advise you to include a Language in your O level subjects. On this note, if you are one of those students seeking admission into any universities, college or polytechnics in Lagos State, you should note that Yoruba Language has been made compulsory for Computer Science and Informatics. So now that you know the waec subject combinations to study Computer Science and Informatics, let also look at JAMB UTME subject combinations and Direct subject combination and requirements to study computer science.

In JAMB, what is the meaning of Special Consideration (Waiver)??

It means, additional requirementfor a particular course in a particular school. If your school have a special consideration for either O’level Requirement, UTME Subject Combination or Direct Entry Requirement, then please take note of it.

Note sometimes in special consideration column, the school requirement might be slight different from the general requirement. We advice you know your desired school’s special consideration for your course. ITS NECESSARY else you might be denied admission.
