JAMB and WAEC (O’Level) Subject Combination for Civil Engineering

We are thrilled to inform you the JAMB and WAEC (O’Level) subject combination for civil engineering is out. We aim to, at the end of this article, to have all your questions answered concerning the Civil Engineering required subjects for both JAMB and WAEC/O’Level.

About Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is a highly prestigious and sought after course. Their works are made bare in almost every built structure in your environment. Ranging from roads to dams and to other important structures, civil engineering proves to be a crucial engineering field for the livelihood of mankind.

There will always be a demand for building new structures, or for improving on already existing ones. This makes Civil engineering a very lucrative career path. Skilled graduates of Civil engineering shouldn’t find any difficulty in securing a well-paid job, especially in Nigeria where development is always a fresh concern.

JAMB and WAEC Subject Combination for Civil Engineering

Moving on, the following sections list the subject combinations required for WAEC/O’LEVEL and next for JAMB.

WAEC (O’Level) Subject Combination for Civil Engineering

For WAEC, the least subjects combination required totals of five subjects. Here they are

  1. Mathematics
  2. English Language
  3. Physics
  4. Chemistry
  5. A science subject

As required by most Universities in Nigeria, for the five subject combinations stated above, you need at least a credit pass in each of the subjects for admission into Civil engineering. Any grade lower than a credit pass renders that subject ineligible.

Also, while a few Universities may prefer only one sitting, most accept two sittings. Meaning that if you didn’t meet the requirements in WAEC or in a single O level examination, you can combine two O level results like WAEC and GCE which contains at least a credit pass in all the required subject combinations that are listed above.

You can find the info you need on admission requirements on their website, admission portal, or in dedicated articles.

As for the science subject listed, any is acceptable, however, a few universities may prefer it be Further Mathematics. It’s advised to check the admission requirements on your school admission portal for Civil Engineering. Moving on, let’s proceed to the Jamb subject combination for Civil engineering.

JAMB Subject Combination for Civil Engineering

For JAMB the subject combination is four in total which includes

  1. Mathematics
  2. English Language
  3. Physics
  4. Chemistry

One very good piece of advice is to score as high as possible in JAMB because the competition is high for those seeking admission to civil engineering. It’s a top engineering course and so it is of no surprise as to why it is so. The General cut-off mark is at least 200 and 180 depending on the University of your choice.

If the Cut off mark isn’t met then you will have to wait to take another jamb the following year, but you can also find admission in polytechnics, college universities, private universities, and some state universities. For these institutions, the cutoff mark requirements are set very low and are fairly easy for many students to pass without a hassle.

Summary

In a single list here’s the jamb and waec subject combination for Civil engineering.

JAMB:
