Admission Requirements For Computer Science & UTME/O’level Subject Combination

Computer Science is a branch of science that deals with the study of computer and its computational systems. The distinct feature between computer science and computer engineering is that while computer engineering deals with the integration of computer science and electronic engineering required to build computer hardwares, computer science deals strcitly with the software applications and codes.

Studying Computer Science in Nigeria is almost the same in all schools except for the JAMB cut off marks. Computer Science requires a high JAMB cut off mark, good post UTME score and most importantly a very good O’level result.

Talking about the admission requirements for studying Computer Science in our tertiary institutions, four (4) requirements are involved, namely:

  1. Required O’Level subjects
  2. O’Level and UTME subjects combination
  3. JAMB or UTME Score of the candidate
  4. Post UTME Score

Candidates that can conveniently meet the above admission requirements for Computer Science to the university’s satisfaction, then admission is 100% guaranteed.

Often times we stress the need for making use of the correct O’Level and UTME subject combination for Computer Science as a course in our tertiary institutions cannot be overemphasized as candidates tend to ignore the importance of this subject matter thus making it difficult for them to gain admission into the university to study this course.

Making use of the correct and approved O’Level subject requirements plus JAMB subject combination for Computer Science makes the admission process much easier for candidates seeking admission to study Computer Science in their various choice of institutions.

Not many are aware that one of the major reason for the increase in purchase of change of course and institution form is because before embarking on the UTME, most candidates fail to confirm the correct WAEC or NECO subjects required to study Computer Science and thus making them go through the process of change of course or institution and sometimes, both.

In one of our posts, we harped succinctly on subject combination for WAEC/NECO and JAMB, it would be wise to go through it as this will give candidates better understandings on not just the subject combination for Computer Science but other courses as approved by JAMB.

Admission Requirements For Studying Computer Science In Nigerian Universities

In this post today, we shall be giving candidates full details as regards the WAEC and NECO otherwise known as O’Level subjects combination and admission requirements for studying Computer Science in our universities today.

Computer Science covers a wide range and scope as it involves both theory and practical classes. Upon graduation, a Computer scientist can work in any organization, IT or even other Multinational white collar companies? They are relevant in any organization in the world at large.

So if you are interested in this studying Computer Science, you must meet their admission requirements which we are about to breakdown below.

Upon completing this post, you ought to be clear about the followings:

a) WAEC or NECO Subjects for studying Computer Science in any Nigerian University.

b) Admission Requirements for studying Computer Science

c) Whether you can combine WAEC and NECO results to Computer Science (Yes you can though this also depends on the institution)

d) Minimum required cut off mark for Computer Science in Nigeria

e) List of Universities In Nigeria that offers Computer Science

f) List of Private universities offering Computer Science

g) State and Federal Universities Offering Computer Science

O’Level Requirements For Computer Science

Candidates who wish to study Computer Science must have the following:

You are required to have a minimum of five (5) credit passes which includes Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English Language and any other Science subject.

UTME Subject Combination For Computer Science

  • English Language (compulsory)
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry.

The above requirements are acceptable by all schools, however there might be slight changes in cut off marks based on the school but the difference will be insignificant.
