JAMB Subject Combination & Requirement for Animal Science


JAMB Subject Combination & Requirement for Animal Science

Do you want to study Animal Science 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 Animal Science in Faculty of Agriculture/Vet. medicine 

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.

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.

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

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
