O’level and UTME/DE Subjects Combination For Mathematical Sciences

Mathematical Sciences 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 Mathematical Sciences 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 Mathematical Sciences makes the admission process much easier for candidates seeking admission to study Mathematical Sciences 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 Mathematical Sciences and thus making them go through the process of change of course or institution and sometimes both.

Mathematical Sciences is a course for science inclined students in secondary schools and it is one of the most sought-after courses which students upon graduating from secondary school search for online. We will not just concentrate on the O’level subjects required to study Mathematical Sciences or the list of universities in Nigeria offering Mathematical Sciences but also, the best schools to study this course. This is not to say that other schools offering Mathematical Sciences are of lesser quality.

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

  1. O’level Subjects for studying Mathematical Sciences in any Nigerian University or polytechnic
  2. Admission Requirements for studying Mathematical Sciences
  3. Whether you can combine WAEC and NECO results to Study Mathematical Sciences  (Yes you can though this also depends on the institution)
  4. Cut off Mark for Mathematical Sciences in any University or Polytechnic
  5. List of Universities in Nigeria that offers Mathematical Sciences

Also, in the quest to study Mathematical Sciences, most candidates look out for the best institution for studying Mathematical Sciences as a course. Say for example; the only (1) university listed below is not just known for studying Mathematical Sciences but can be regarded as the best school for this course.


Studying Mathematical Sciences as the case may present itself requires that candidate possess the following:

  • Five (5) O’level credit passes to include English Language, Mathematics, Physics plus two (2) other Science subjects.

Now let’s go through the O’level (NECO/WAEC) and JAMB approved subjects’ combination for studying Mathematical Sciences before discussing about the cut off mark.

Direct Entry Requirement for Mathematical Sciences:

  • Two (2) A Level passes in Mathematics and Physics.

 UTME Subject combination for Mathematical Sciences:

  • Mathematics, Physics and one (1) of Biology, Chemistry, Agric Science, Economics and Geography.

It is advised that prospective students score up to 240 minimum JAMB cut off mark and above to stand a chance of studying Mathematical Sciences due to the competitive nature of the course. Though cut off mark may vary from school to school. Ideally, the 240 JAMB score is enough to see any candidate through so long as you pass your post UTME very well.



Hope the above information is well understood? If you have any question as regards O’level subjects’ requirements for studying Mathematical Sciences and the JAMB approved subject combination for Mathematical Sciences as a course, kindly get back to us via our comment section below and we shall respond accordingly.
