Chemistry as a subject is one of the most dreaded subjects in Junior and Senior secondary schools in Nigeria. The reason many students fail to gain admission is because they have failed to pass Chemistry especially. According to WAEC’s report, at least 42% of candidates fail Chemistry as a subject in WAEC and NECO every year which is the major reason there are many re-sit candidates.
The category of students that dread Chemistry as a course would find this post very interesting and beneficial. Most of us are used to seeing and hearing that to gain admission into any higher institution in Nigeria, your O’level requirements must be at complete, which is, five (5) credit passes which must include Mathematics, English language and 3 other subjects which often require Chemistry for Science courses. Many candidates have lost out on the admission for the session because they lack adequate information as regards their selected courses as many are not aware that there are some science courses that do not require Chemistry as a requirement for admission in many universities, polytechnics and colleges of education today.
Yes most courses actually require that a candidate obtain Mathematics and English language as compulsory subjects in addition to three (3) other subjects as it relates to the course of study. You might be wondering how to find out the correct subject combination for your desired course, the link would list all JAMB and UTME subject combination for your course as this would help you in registering for the right subjects both in WAEC and NECO examination.
The beautiful thing about these courses that can be studied without a credit pass in Chemistry. A ‘D’ or an ‘E’ would still be accepted. Okay let us assume the candidate sits for the course and he or she obtains a D or E in Chemistry, such student is equally as eligible as other candidates that obtains an A, B or C grades in Chemistry.
It is quite pathetic that many candidates have lost out on admission because they lack this information, anyone who asks questions never get lost so I always advice students to go through this post thoroughly and share amongst friends in order to help those who never knew about courses that they can study in higher institutions that do not require Chemistry as an O’level requirement for admission.
You must be really eager to know these courses, and please note that some of these courses are professional and well respected courses offered in all states and federal universities, polytechnics and COEs.
In addition, we will be adding some courses that you can also study without a credit in English language and the respective university, polytechnic or college of education that accept such special considerations as this would give candidates arrays of options to select from.
