The UTME and Direct requirement below was lifted from JAMB Official Brochure (JAMB IBASS). It is the Updated, Accurate and Official version.

WARNING: Please take your time and read through this page because this course is offered in different faculties and each faculty has a different requirement. If confused, you can always use the comment box on this page and ALLSCHOOL will answer you ASAP.

In JAMB, what is the meaning of Special Consideration (Waiver)??

It means, an additional requirement for a particular course in a particular school. If your school has a special consideration for either O’level Requirement, UTME Subject Combination, or Direct Entry Requirement, then please take note of it.

Note sometimes in the special consideration column, the school requirement might be slight different from the general requirement.

We advise you to always check if your school of choice has a different requirement in the special consideration column.

Akinkunmi

Can a combination on English,maths,physics,biology,chemistry and data processing o levels get me an admission into food science and technology department in Bowen

Akinkunmi

Please what are the subject combinations and o levels requirements to study food science and tech in Bowen

Favourraymond

Can I study biochemistry or food tech offering only this subjects in jamb? biology,physic,agric

Fatima Sani Bature

Thank you so much
You actually are a live saver because I thought the subject combination was english, chemistry, physics and agric,so I was very worried because I don’t offer agriculture but biology,after seeing this I feel relieved and so happy that Agriculture can be replaced by Biology.

Sunday Marvellous
