Today at AfricaStatus educational centre, I will be sharing the complete and comprehensive list of courses offered in Nigerian Universities and their JAMB subject combination for the 2023 academic session.

Before proceeding, it is important to note here, that the Use of English is mandatory for all candidates sitting for the UTME JAMB examination.

After several years of aiding and providing solutions to UTME candidate’s problems, before, during and after their UTME Registration, I discovered that several students do not know the correct JAMB subject combination for their desired courses, which makes it more confusing when it comes to choosing the actual JAMB subjects for the courses they intend to study.

So to ensure that I provided maximum information regarding this issue and a lasting solution, I did extensive research, and listed below is the complete list of courses and their required JAMB subject combination.

Important Information.

It is also important to note here, that if I didn’t offer your preferred course O’level subject combinations, it is because it shares the same subject combination with a similar course from the same faculty.

For example, all engineering courses have the same subject combination in JAMB.

2023 Jamb Subject Combination For All Courses
