UTME & DE Admission Requirements For Studying Medical Laboratory Science In Nigeria

Medical Laboratory Science is the same as Science Laboratory Technology, it all depends on the school in question. MLS as it is known is one of the most sought after courses in the field of health and medical sciences after Medicine and Pharmacy. The admission requirement for studying MLS (Medical Laboratory Science) in Nigeria is almost the same in all schools except for the JAMB cut off marks. Pharmacy requires a high JAMB cut off mark, good post UTME score and most importantly a very good O’level result and very good.

Talking about the admission requirements for studying MLS (Medical Laboratory Science), 4 requirements are involved, Please note that these requirements are the same for both states and Federal universities namely:

  1. Required O’Level subjects
  2. O’Level and UTME subjects combination
  3. JAMB or UTME Score of the candidate
  4. Post UTME Score

Any candidate that can conveniently meet the above MLS (Medical Laboratory Science) admission requirements to the university’s satisfaction, admission into both Federal and states universities that will be listed below is 100% guaranteed.

Often times we stress the need for the correct WAEC, NECO and UTME subject combination for studying MLS (Medical Laboratory Science) as a course in our tertiary institutions cannot be overemphasized as candidates tend to ignore the importance of this subject matter thus making it difficult for them to gain admission into the university to study this course.

Making use of the correct and approved WAEC and NECO subject requirements plus JAMB subject combination for Medical Laboratory Science makes the admission process much easier for candidates seeking admission to study MLS or SLT in their various choice of institutions.

Not many are aware that one of the major reason 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 WAEC and NECO subjects required to study Medical Laboratory Science and thus making them go through the process of change of course or institution and sometimes, both.

In one of our posts, we harped succinctly on subject combination for WAEC/NECO and JAMB, it would be wise to go through it as this will give candidates better understandings on not just the subject combination for Medical Laboratory Science but other courses as approved by JAMB.

Admission Requirements For Studying MLS (Medical Laboratory Science) In Nigerian Universities

In this post today, we shall be giving candidates full details as regards the WAEC and NECO otherwise known as O’Level subjects combination and admission requirements for studying MLS (Medical Laboratory Science) in our universities and polytechnics today.

Medical Laboratory Science are the most popular Medical and Health related courses studied in both Polytechnics and universities today.

MLS (Medical Laboratory Science) covers a wide range and scope as it involves both theory and practical classes. Many wonder upon graduation, where a MLS upon graduation can work aside hospitals? The truth remains that they are valuable assets in every field. A Medical Laboratory Scientist can work in the hospital, pharmaceutical companies, research firms, NGOs etc. They are in the best position to personally own Medical Diagnostic Labs and we all are aware of the number of expensive tests carried out on patients daily based on referrals from the hospitals or clinics.

So if you are interested in this studying this course, you must meet the admission requirements for MLS which we are about to breakdown below.

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

a) WAEC and NECO Subjects for studying Medical Laboratory Science in any Nigerian University.

b) Admission Requirements for studying Medical Laboratory Science

c) Whether you can combine WAEC and NECO results to Medical Laboratory Science (Yes you can though this also depends on the institution)

d) Minimum required cut off mark for MLS in Nigeria

e) List of Universities In Nigeria that offers MLS (Medical Laboratory Science)

f) List of Private Schools offering Medical Laboratory Science

g) State and Federal Universities Offering Medical Laboratory Science

WAEC Subject Combination & Admission Requirements for Studying Medical Laboratory Science

WAEC or NECO subject combination for studying Medical Laboratory Science in any university or polytechnic in Nigeria requires the following:

That you must have obtained a minimum of 5 credit passes in the under listed subjects in not more than 2 sittings.

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics
  3. Physics
  4. Chemistry
  5. Biology

Please note that the higher your grades in the subjects, the better your chances as this will be used when weighing your overall cut off mark.

JAMB/UTME Subject Combination for Studying MLS (Medical Laboratory Science)

Since the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is responsible admission into all tertiary institutions, we are going to put you through their approved subject combination and admission requirements for studying MLS (Medical Laboratory Science). The subjects are the compulsory exams that must be registered for and written during the yearly UTME as failure to do so automatically means such persons are not qualified to study MLS or SLT.

Required JAMB Score For Studying MLS OR SLT

To study MLS, candidate must write the under-listed subjects in their UTME and score at least 240 and above to stand a chance of studying Medical Laboratory Science(MLS). The truth is any JAMB score below 240 risks the chance of studying this course.

So to study Medical Laboratory Science in any university or Polytechnic in Nigeria, you must register in your UTME form, the under listed subjects:

  1. English
  2. Physics
  3. Chemistry
  4. Biology.

Direct Entry Admission Requirement For Studying Medical Laboratory Science

The subject combination and admission requirements for MLS (Medical Laboratory Science) for DE (Direct Entry candidates) is not so different from that of UTME.

Direct Entry Requirements for Medical Laboratory Science

Direct Entry candidates who wish to study Medical Laboratory Science programme at any of the Universities in Nigeria must have the following

An ‘A’ level passes to include Physics, Chemistry and Biology or Zoology

Recommended:  UAM Admission Requirements For UTME & Direct Entry Candidates

Special Admission Considerations for Direct Entry Candidates

(i) University of Calabar (UNICAL) accepts ‘A’ level in any two of Chemistry, Biology and Physics, B.SC in Biological Science; AIMLT or FIMLT with O/L requirements.

(ii) UNIMAID (University of Maiduguri) and Imo State University (IMSU) accepts Certificate of Institute of Medical Laboratory Technology Science/Technology (IMLS/T) of Nigeria and ‘O’ level requirements.

Having the above information as regards the O’level and UTME subjects a candidate must posses in order to study Medical Laboratory Science cannot be complete without knowing the schools that offer this course. See the list below for schools currently offering Medical Laboratory Science in Nigeria as at today.

List of Universities in Nigeria Offering Medical Laboratory Science (MLS)

  1. Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma (AAU)
  2. AfeBabalola University, Ado Ekiti (ABUAD)
  3. Babcock University (BABCOCK)
  4. Bayero University Kano (BUK)
