O’Level and UTME/DE Subjects Combination For Laboratory Technology

Laboratory Technology O’level and UTME subjects combination is the same for all schools irrespective of the higher institution. For example, all universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education offering Laboratory Technology are mandated to make use of the same Subject Combo as a requirement for the above course.

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

Not many are aware that one of the major reasons for the increase in purchase of change of university and institution is because before embarking on the UTME, most candidates fail to confirm the correct O’level subjects required to study Laboratory Technology and thus making them go through the process of change of course or institution and sometimes both.
