Hey Savants! Welcome to “JAMB doctor Series” in this episode, I will provide you with WAEC and JAMB Subject combination for Computer Science, Direct entry requirement to study Computer Science through JAMB, JUPEB and IJMB, pretty cool right?… STAY TUNED!
For everyone who plans to study Computer Science in Nigeria, it is important and necessary you know the subjects that are required to becoming a Computer Scientist in Nigeria.
I have seen cases, where students who wish to study a particular course go ahead to register the wrong subject combination in JAMB and in their O’level (WAEC, NECO or NABTEB) simply because they were not well informed and would later start searching for means with which correct the mistake.

So, irrespective of the school you want to study in (UNIBEN, UI, UNILAG, DELSU e.t.c) these are the subjects you must enroll and pass to be eligible for admission to study computer science.
If you must study Computer Science in Nigeria you must first get a minimum of five (5) credits in your O’ level (WAEC, NECO or NABTEB) core courses and enroll four (4) subjects in JAMB which you should score at least 220. P.S; See JAMB Cut off mark for all Schools
