UTME and O'level Subjects For Computer Science (Polytechnics)

JAMB logo
Polytechnics offering Computer Science requires the right subjects combination in JAMB UTME. Also, candidates must chase this course with the right O'level (SSCE) subjects. These requirements, however, may vary from institutions. Below are what you must know about UTME and SSCE subjects as required by JAMB and the affected polytechnics.

JAMB Subject Requirements for Computer Science

For Computer Science Science admissions into various polytechnics, JAMB demands English, Mathematics and any two (2) of Geography, Physics, Economics or Chemistry.

NOTE: I'll prefer English, Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. This combination can also help you to change to any Engineering course if you decide to change course later.

The board also demands Five (5) SSC credit passes in Mathematics, English Language and Physics a basic science and three (3) other subjects chosen from the following: Economics, Geography, Government/History, Further Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Agricultural Science. English Language, Typewriting.

JAMB Cut Off Marks for Business Education

Though JAMB usually draws national cut off marks for all institutions in the country. However, some institutions can draw something a bit higher than that announced by JAMB. 

There is no space to mention the cut off mark each of these institutions will ask for this admission year. It's best to say that scoring 110 or above in UTME should be enough for any possible computer course in these universities. However, it's advisable to visit the individual school's website to confirm what they asked for in the last admission year. This should be a quick guide. You can use the search box on this blog to search for any of the polytechnics to see if their post UTME adverts had been updated here too. This is because polytechnics such as EDE POLY, IBADAN POLY, BIDA POLY, KWARA, OFFA POLY, etc will still ask for 140 or above notwithstanding.
