O’Level & UTME/DE Subject Combination for Engineering Physics

The Engineering Physics 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 Engineering Physics 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 Engineering Physics makes the admission process much easier for candidates seeking admission to study Engineering Physics in their various institutions.

O’Level & UTME/DE Subject Combination for Engineering Physics 1

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 Engineering Physics 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 Engineering Physics in our universities and polytechnics.

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

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

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

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


Studying Engineering Physics as the case may present itself requires that candidate possess the following:

  • Five (5) O’level credit passes in English Language, Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry and any one (1) of Health Science, Statistics, Physics and Geography…

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

Direct Entry Requirement for Engineering Physics:

  • A Level Passes in Physics and Mathematics.

UTME Subject combination for Engineering Physics:

  • Chemistry, Biology and either Physics or Mathematics

It is advised that prospective students score up to 250 minimum JAMB cut off mark and above to stand a chance of studying Engineering Physics due to the competitive nature of the course. Though cut off mark may vary from school to school. Ideally, the 250 JAMB score is enough to see any candidate through so long as you pass your post UTME very well.


  • Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU)

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