Universities and Courses that Accept D7, E8 or F9 in Physics for Admission

HOW TO GAIN ADMISSION TO UNDERGRADUATE COURSES WITH D7, E8 or F9 in PHYSICS

You're on the right page if you want answers to: what course can I study with e8 in physics? Or you want to know medical courses without physics, engineering courses without physics and any other science courses without physics in Nigerian universities.
 
SSCE result is REQUIRED to gain admission - just as JAMB UTME result. But candidates suffer some setbacks when they don’t have the right grade in one or two of their required subjects. You will be happy to learn that even if you don’t have credit passes in one of your O’level results, you still have a good chance to gain admission with it if you have the right information.

The purpose of this series is to give you clue to courses you can opt-in for, with a pass in English, Mathematics, Chemistry, Economics, Commerce, Geography, Biology, Account, Government, Literature in English or any other important subjects.

I’d researched into this before posting, yet this piece will continually be updated as soon as I need to answer further questions related to deficiencies in O’level result and admission.

But for the purpose of better focus and concentration, this post will address the deficiency in PHYSICS and my subsequent posts will be addressing other subjects.

Let’s get to work…


First Thing to Know About O'level Result

To gain admission with NECO, WAEC, NABTEB or their equivalence, all you need is at least five credit passes in not more than two sittings. I explained this further in the post “SSCE Results: How to know 5 Compulsory Subjects to Pass for Admission Purpose”.

Courses like Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy may only, however, require one sitting. Though this depends on schools policies, yet this position is widely acceptable. Osun State University, Osogbo, for instance, declared in her Post UTME exercise advert that Nursing and Law requires one sitting. University of Ibadan, Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Lagos, University of Benin and some other premier universities have open policies of not accepting two sittings for College of Medicine and Health Sciences courses.

To gain admission, then, you must provide 5 credit passes in subjects relevant to your proposed course.

But it can be disheartening if however you were disappointed with D7 or E8 (even F9) in any of your core subjects. So what do you do?

Some courses allow you to have ordinary pass D7 or E8 in WAEC, NECO, NABTEB etc Below is the full guide to courses that allow it and the attached conditions.

What Courses Can You Do With D7 or E8 in Physics?

Generally speaking, Physics is central to Engineering and Technology and Medicinal/Clinical Sciences courses than Pure Sciences and Agricultural Sciences.

In order words, it is compulsory to have at least a credit pass in Physics if you must seek Engineering and medical courses admission. This is why it is IMPOSSIBLE for you to do any technology related courses without PHYSICS – unless such a school is extremely lenient.

Check JAMB brochure and you will find out that no Physics – no Engineering and medical courses.

See: JAMB Brochure and How to Study it and Avoid Admission Errors

However, this doesn’t mean that all non-engineering courses will accept a deficiency in Physics – No. But some do accept it.

Then, with a pass (D7 or E8) or failing in Physics, you can opt-in for the following courses instead:
  1. Biology
  2. Biological sciences
  3. Anatomy
  4. Agronomy
  5. Agronomy and Ecological Management
  6. Animal and Environmental Biology
  7. Animal Nutrition
  8. Animal Nutrition And Biotechnology
  9. Animal Physiology
  10. Animal Science and Related Courses
  11. Applied Botany
  12. Fisheries
  13. Chemistry, Biology and Agric Education courses 

Go through the links above to move to details of the individual course and see their terms.

While in general terms, those courses mentioned above (and others to be added later) do not compulsory credit in Physics, some schools may still demand specifically if what they want is an ordinary pass (D7 and E8) or F9 (or never written).

Schools that Accept Other Subjects Instead of Physics or Pass in Physics

You may be interested in these conditions. If you want to study Chemistry, for instance, some schools accept the following alternatives for Physics. So, if you don't have physics, give them the alternative instead.

1. Chemistry
  1. Ajayi Crowther University accepts Geography in the place of Physics.
  2. The University of Calabar requires an O'level credit pass in Physics /Mathematics. They accept O'level D7 in English and one (1) of Mathematics or Biology.

2. Biology
  1. Gombe State University accepts O level pass in Physics. 
  2. Federal University of Technology Minna (FUTMINNA) requires five (5) O'level credit passes to include English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and any other Science subject. At least pass (D7 or E8) in Physics is required.
  3. Federal University, Dustin-Ma accepts five (5) O'level credit passes to include English Language, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and any one (1) of Physics, Geography, Health Science or Agricultural Science. Pass (D7 or E8) in Physics will be accepted.
