O’Level and UTME/DE Subjects Combination For Physical Sciences

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

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

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

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