Universities/Courses that Accept Economics D7, E8 or F9


We all know how important ECONOMICS is to any social science, management or commercial course in the universities, polytechnics and colleges of education. The subject is the backbone of all commercial disciplines. This is why it’s made compulsory for candidates who propose to study the likes of Economics, Accounting, Business Management, Banking and Finance, Marketing and more.

For such courses, JAMB brochure would state, “Mathematics, Economics, English and any other two social or Art subjects as the requirements for O’level. In other words, an admission seeker must have at least C6 in Economics for his proposed course.

While this is true, do you know that, with D7, E8 or F9, you can still study your intending commercial course? How? Where?
