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

In this post today, we shall be giving candidates full details as regards the WAEC and NECO otherwise known as O’level subject’s combination and requirements for studying Mathematics and Statistics in our universities and polytechnics.

Mathematics and Statistics 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, Mathematics and Statistics or the list of universities in Nigeria offering Mathematics and Statistics but also, the best schools to study this course. This is not to say that other schools offering Mathematics and Statistics are of lesser quality.

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

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

**O’LEVEL AND UTME APPROVED SUBJECTS COMBINATION FOR MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS **

Also, in the quest to study Mathematics and Statistics, most candidates look out for the best institution for studying Mathematics and Statistics as a course. Say for example; the universities listed below are not just known for studying Mathematics and Statistics but can be regarded as the best schools for this course.

**O’LEVEL COMBINATION AND REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDYING MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS **

Studying Mathematics and Statistics as the case may present itself requires that candidate possess the following:

- Five (5) O’level credit passes to include English Language, Mathematics and at least three (3) of Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Additional/Further Mathematics.

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

**Direct Entry Requirement for Mathematics and Statistics:**

- Two (2) A Level passes in Mathematics and either Physics or Chemistry
- NCE merit in Mathematics and either Physics or Chemistry.

**UTME Subject combination for Mathematics and Statistics:**

- English Language, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry or Biology.

**CUT OFF MARK FOR MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS **

It is advised that prospective students score up to 230 minimum JAMB cut off mark and above to stand a chance of studying Mathematics and Statistics due to the competitive nature of the course. Though cut off mark may vary from school to school. Ideally, the 230 JAMB score is enough to see any candidate through so long as you pass your post UTME very well.

**LIST OF UNIVERSITIES OFFERING MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS**

- CARITAS UNIVERSITY, AMORJI-NIKE, ENUGU, ENUGU STATE – CARITAS
