University Courses that Accept D7, E8, F9 in Government


If you have D7, E8, or F9 in Government, as an art student, you may be doubting if your admission is sure. After all, Government is an important subject in O'level for all art students. As such, you should need it while seeking admissions.


In the same vein, if you didn't write Government in UTME, even though you had it in your WAEC, NECO, or NABTEB, you could be wondering if it's possible to see any course or university, polytechnics, or colleges of education that will consider that.


In fact, some candidates don't have Government in WAEC, NECO, or NABTEB. Yet, they don't write in UTME. So, when they're trying to do the change of courses, they want to be very careful so they don't choose courses that eventually will require Government in either or both SSCE subjects and/or UTME subjects


In this post, I will be extracting, from the official JAMB brochure, the best of art courses you may consider if you don't have or write Government in your SCCE. And if for any reason, Government is not among your subject combination in JAMB.


This post will carefully separate the courses into:

  1. Universities Courses
  2. Polytechnics Courses
  3. College of Educations Courses
