On this page, we are going to show you the UTME subject combination, O’level & Direct Entry (DE) requirement for Optometry in Faculty/College of MEDICAL/PHARMACEUTICAL/HEALTH SCIENCES.

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

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.
