The admission requirement to study Applied Geophysics in Nigeria Universities includes one or a combination of ‘O’ level results or A-level result if you’re going through Direct Entry. This page will literally answer questions such as WAEC subject combination, JAMB UTME subject combination, Direct Entry requirements, Special consideration (waivers), where you can work with the degree and the required documents for admission into Nigeria universities. If you’re still having difficulties with getting admission in Nigeria Universities, we have some post that may be of benefit to you.

 

What is O level/WAEC subject combination (requirement) for Applied Geophysics?
The subjects needed to study Applied Geophysics in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The O level requirement that is the compulsory WAEC subject combination for Applied Geophysics must include

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics
  3. Physics
  4. Chemistry/Biology
  5. A trade subject

 

What is JAMB UTME subject combination (subjects needed) for Applied Geophysics?
You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just an advice) because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic… Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND or Predegree. JAMB UTME subject combination for Applied Geophysics are

  1. Chemistry
  2. Biology
  3. Mathematics

 

What is Direct Entry requirement (that is the required A-level result you need) to study Applied Geophysics?
‘A’ level passes in Chemistry and Physics or 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 combination 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 Applied Geophysics, (which is also applicable to NECO and GCE) as well as A-level result/certificate.
Before you make a decision on which University to choose, please consider

  • The Fees
  • The Distance
