Hello SAVANT!, welcome to another episode of my “Jamb Doctor Series“, In this episode I will not just give you a comprehensive list of Universities that accept combined result (Waec and Neco, WASSCE and Waec GCE, Waec and Nabteb amd even Neco and Nabteb), here I will also show you the best way to go about it… STAY TUNED!

Waec, Neco and Nabteb O'level
Waec, Neco and Nabteb O’level

Not too long ago, I discussed extensively with you the concept of Using awaiting result to secure admission in 2022/2023, moments after that, I received questions concerning “how students can combine their O’ level result and universities that accept it” and that is the reason for todays guide.

With the understanding of Waec and other O’ level grading system, you would realize that the minimum grade you should get that is considered as pass and can be used for admission is C6, any thing less than this (D7, E8, F9 in Waec) will not be considered for admission.

GRADEDEFINITIONINTERPRETATION
A1 Excellent 75% – 100%
B2Very good70% – 74%
B3Good65%- 69%
C4 Credit 60% – 64%
C5 Credit 55% – 59%
C6 Credit 50% – 54%
D7 Pass45% – 49%
E8Pass40% – 45%
F9Fail0% – 44%

But this does not mean if you enrolled Eight subjects in Waec and had F9 in one of those subjects then no admission for you, Absolutely NO, that is where the Idea of Core, Mandatory and Optional subjects come into play.

Getting a little bit confusing right?, don’ t worry, I will explain further…

…Your Core subjects are subjects that links directly to your field of interest, while mandatory subjects are subjects that are also important to your field of interest, while Optional subjects are subjects not entirely related to your field (science, art or Social Science) but can still be offered by you.

Now, among these three (3), the most important are your Core subjects, it is important because, this is what the University you apply to will be looking out for when confirming if you meet the requirements to study a particular course.

For a typical science student, your Core subjects are English Language, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics (although Biology can be replaced with Agric if you do not want to further in Health Science).

It is only when you have issues with your core Subjects, you should begin to worry. Let me give you a typical example.

If a student wishes to Study Pharmacy in the University of Benin, and had a WAEC GRADE; English B2, Mathematics, C6, Biology C4, Chemistry A1, Physics C5, Economics D7, Computer B3, Agricultural Science C4.

This student have absolutely nothing to worry about, simply because, the D7 he had in Economics won’t count (Economics is an optional course for Pharmacy students), but if he had D7 in English, biology or any of his other core courses, then therein lies the issue.

So does this then mean If a student have D7, E8, F9 in Waec then no more hope of admission for that student?🤷

Good question, this now brings us to the only way out for these category of students, which is combination of O’ level result for Admission.

What Is Combination Of O’ level Result?

Combine Waec, Neco and Nabtbe O' level for admission

This is when a student combines two (2) O’ level result (it could be combining Waec with Neco, Nabteb or their respective GCE), with the purpose of one augmenting the other.

If you have gone through Jamb brochure containing all courses and their requirements on Jamb IBASS (I have shown you how to access Jamb IBASS here) you will see that most courses O’ level requirement is…

A minimum of O’level credit pass in five (5) SSSC subjects at not more than two sittings, here, the five SSC subjects are your Core subjects for that course, while not more than two sittings means you cannot combine more than two (2) O’level results.

How To Combine O’level Result For Admission

shy to ask questions

You can combine the following O’level results for admission to any University in Nigeria for all courses…

  • Waec and Neco
  • Neco and Nabteb
  • Waec and Nabteb
  • Waec and Neco GCE
  • Neco and Neco GCE
  • Waec and Waec GCE
  • Waec and Nabteb GCE
  • Neco and Nabteb GCE
  • Nabteb and Neco GCE

Any of these combination would do the Job, but there is a way to go about this, which I will be showing you shortly…

To be able to use any of the combination above, you must make sure that the result you are combining with the other already have that subject passed, let us look at some examples below…

If John has English B2, Mathematics, C6, Biology C4, Chemistry A1, Physics E8 in WAEC, and luckily sat for NECO that same year and passed physics in NECO, then John can confidently combine both the Waec and Neco results together for admission.

So, to make this work, you are expected to have at least a credit in the O’ level exam you wish to use to supplement the other, any grade less than this cannot be used as two sittings.

NOTE ALSO: that, you cannot combine more than two O’level results, so nothing like three (3) or four (4) sittings.

Now, to the main reason why we are here, not all universities in Nigeria accept two sittings, some Universities do but not in all courses, take for example University of Ibadan (UI) accepts two sittings for other Courses but not for courses like Medicine and surgery, Pharmacy e.t.c

To make it easier for you, I have compiled a list of Universities That Accept Combined Result for admission into various courses, but I will still advise you go through Jamb Brochure to check the O’ level requirement for specific courses in the University you want to study in.

You can access Jamb brochure through Jamb IBASS (Integrated brochure and syllabus system).
