For everyone who plans to study Physics in Nigeria, it is important and necessary you know the subjects that are required to becoming a Student of Physics 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 they can correct the mistake.
