Admission Requirements For Biological Science in Nigeria

If you choose to consider Biological Science in JAMB UTME/DE or while changing institutions/courses, you'll want to know what the admission requirements are.


With this, you want answers to three questions depending on your own concerns. As a UTME candidate, you want to know:


  1. The JAMB subject combination for Biological Science and 
  2. SSCE (O'level) subject requirement for it.


As Direct Entry (DE) applicant, you want to know, aside from the O'level requirements, which concern you too, what the A'level, NCE, ND, HND, or BSC required for Biological Science.


In this post, using the official JAMB brochure, I'll be giving you the official admission requirements for ALL universities that are offering Biological Science.

First, The General JAMB Requirement for Biological Science

According to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), candidates seeking admission into Biological Science must have the following.


  1. Direct Entry (DE) Applicants: (i) Two (2) A level passes to include one (1) of Botany, Zoology, Biology or Chemistry. (ii) ND/NCE in related programme/subject.
  2. SSCE/DE Applicants: Five (5) SSC credit passes to include English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and any other Science subject.
  3. JAMB subject Combination: English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics or Mathematics.

With the stated conditions above, if a student should follow, the university proposed should admit him or her provided you meet other admission conditions.

Second, The Specific Requirement By A Few Universities Offering Biological Science

To prove this further and show you any difference in what each university may ask for, let's sample three of the universities - federal, state, and private. The sample universities DE, SSCE, and JAMB subjects are numbered 1, 2, and 3 respectively.

Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State accepts as follows.

  1. (i) Two (2) 'A' Level passes to include one (1) of Botany, Zoology, Biology or Chemistry (ii)    ND/NCE in related programme/subject.
  2. Five (5) SSC credit passes to include English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and any other Science subject.
  3. Biology, Chemistry and Physics or Mathematics.

Yobe State University, Damaturu, Yobe State accepts as follows.

  1. (i) Two (2) 'A' Level passes to include one (1) of Botany, Zoology, Biology or Chemistry (ii)    ND/NCE in related programme/subject.
  2. Five (5) SSC credit passes to include English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and any other Science subject.
  3. Biology, Chemistry and Physics or Mathematics.

Godfrey Okoye University, Urgwuomu- Nike, Enugu State accepts as follows.

  1. (i) Two (2) 'A' Level passes to include one (1) of Botany, Zoology, Biology or Chemistry (ii)    ND/NCE in related programme/subject.
  2. Five (5) SSC credit passes to include English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and any other Science subject.
  3. Biology, Chemistry and Physics or Mathematics.

Conclusion

While seeking admission into any university offering Biological Science in Nigeria, like any other course, the JAMB official requirement should be your priority because most if not the universities will comply with that.

As you must have seen in the post and with the sampled universities, the primary requirements are still in accordance with that of JAMB.
