What is JAMB UTME subject combination (subjects needed) for Civil Engineering?
You should aim for a score of 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side. (Just an advice). If you score 180 and above in this recent JAMB UTME- All is well with you, but if your score is below 180, Please consider College or Polytechnic.. Don’t expect JAMB score upgrade. White collar Scammers are everywhere. JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles passing JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB or Predegree.

  1. Physics
  2. Chemistry
  3. Mathematics If you don’t have credit in Mathematics, Click here fast


What is Direct Entry requirement (that is the required A level result you need) to study Civil Engineering?
‘A’ level passes in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics

Just a reminder: Everything you have read so far is a general requirement, it is expedient that you also check the special consideration for this course below. If for some reasons you are not satisfied or cannot meet up with the subject combinations above, perhaps you should consider taking a look at Polytechnic or College of Education related course subject requirements. You can also study online with a foreign university right from your bedroom or apply for a scholarship to study abroad. Education is now a choice.

So now that you know the compulsory WAEC, JAMB subject combination for Civil Engineering, (which is also applicable to NECO and GCE) as well as A level result/certificate. Do you know which Universities in Nigeria offer Civil Engineering?
Before you make a decision on which University to choose, please consider
