jamb subject combination for geography

Do you want to study GEOGRAPHY as a course at any Nigerian University?? Then Allschool has got you covered. The good thing about this page is that you will not be denied admission for the wrong JAMB subject combination or requirement.

On this page, we are going to show you the UTME subject combination, O’level & Direct Entry (DE) requirement for GEOGRAPHY in the Faculty of Sciences, Faculty of Art/Humanities and the Faculty of Social/Management Sciences.

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.
