JAMB Subject Combination & Requirement for Geophysics

Accurate JAMB Subject Combination & O’level Requirement for GEOPHYSICS.

Source: iReservoir

Do you want to study Geophysics as a course in any Nigerian University?? Then Allschool have got you covered…..

In this page we are going to show you the UTME subject combination, O’level & Direct Entry (DE) requirement for Geophysics in Faculty/College of Science. We will also show you the special consideration (waiver) for the course.

The UTME and Direct requirement below was lifted from JAMB Official Brochure. It is the Accurate and Official version for the above course.

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

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

Note sometimes in special consideration column, the school requirement might be slight different from the general requirement. We advice you know your desired school’s special consideration for your course. ITS NECESSARY else you might be denied admission.
