Can I Use D7, E8, F9 Economics for Business Administration?

Economics seems compulsory for all business-related courses in universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.


Of course, it should be - because most commercial, social science, or management courses depend much on the knowledge of economics. As a result, very many candidates won't escape Economics while seeking admissions into courses that require the subject.


In fact, a few of my recent posts ... 


  1. where I established the fact that you don't have to write both Economics and Commerce in SSCE/JAMB or 
  2. where I stated Economics as a compulsory commercial subject in WAEC, NECO, and NABTEB


... you must have got the idea behind making at least C6 in your Economics.


However, a few universities, and for certain commercial or management courses, still admit with an ordinary pass or failure in Economics.


In other words, some universities will allow you to use another subject in place of Economics if you have F9, E8, or D7 in Economics.


If you're strictly interested in Business Administration, below is the list of the universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education accepting D7, E8, or F9 in Economics. This doesn't mean you won't write Economics but it won't matter the weaker the grade.

    1. Generally, their cut off mark is from 120 and above which may change each year. The polytechnic doesn't make the final aggregate screening cut-off mark for each department public.

      Normally, if you have Commerce, you can use that in place of Economics. Read the post below.
