Universities and Courses that Accept Biology D7, E8 or F9

When I dropped the post, “Universities and Courses that Accept D7, E8 or F9 in Physics for Admission”, I’d thought I was looking for trouble. I knew more and more people will be asking related questions. I’d also promised that, that piece would mark the beginning of unending series of such discussions at schoolcontents.info

This candidate has D7 in Biology - WAEC
And for that post alone, I had got questions regards some deficiencies in Biology too. Admission seekers are asking:
  1. What course can I study with D7 in Biology?
  2. What course should I put in for with E8 in Biology?
  3. Which school will accept D7, E8 or F9 in Biology?
  4. Can I still process admission with Cancel in my Biology
  5. I have outstanding in my Biology, can I apply for any course?

These are, but a few of such questions. I got you answers and below are my points.

Biology is central to some science courses of course. On this note, if you’re a management/social science or art student, you won’t necessarily need Biology for your admission. In other words, 99% of your management courses never requires Biology.

However, for sciences, you may hardly find your way out of lacking at least a credit pass in it.

How Many Subjects Do you Need for Science Courses?

  1. Generally, you need at least 5 credit passes in not more than two sittings.
  2. Some schools such as the University of Ibadan usually demand 6 credit passes, at least, if you must use two sittings.
  3. Some courses require only one sitting such as Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, and the likes.
  4. Mainly, pure science and medical courses make Biology compulsory and you must have credit pass, at least, in it.
  5. This is why you must study your brochure before proceeding with the selection of any course in the first place.
Back to the concern of this post – what are the courses you can do with a pass in Biology i.e D7, E8 or Fail (F9)?

    1. For all polytechnics, English is compulsory for Science Laboratory Technology (SLT).

      However, a few polytechnics accept ordinary pass (D7 or E8) in English as detailed below:

      1. FEDPO-NEK requires five (5) 'O' Level credit passes in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Agric. Science and any one (1) of Economics/Geography, English Language, Literature in English, Government/History and Technical Drawing. It accepts Chemistry as one (1) of the UTME subjects.

      2. OGUN-POLY requires five (5) 'O' Level credit passes at not more than two (2) sittings to include Mathematics, and any two (2) of the core science subjects i.e. Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Agricultural Science with a pass in the third (3rd) and English Language.

      3. RUGIPO requires 'O' Level pass in English Language and Physics.
