Correct JAMB & O’level Subject Combination for All Course 2023

It is that time of the year again when many Nigerian students apply to sit for the JAMB examination to gain admission into various tertiary institutions.

Unfortunately, many students repeatedly make the same mistakes by choosing either the wrong JAMB or O’level (WAEC and NECO) subject combinations.

As expected, this leads to admission disqualification and disappointments.

Worst-case scenario, such students will have to sit for the JAMB examination next year or study a different course entirely different from their preferred first choice.

To avoid such errors, I have decided to help students know the right subject combination for the course they want to study this year.

All you have to do is to provide the following information using the comment box below this post;

  • Choice of Institution
