What are the O level subjects required in WAEC and NECO to study Agricultural Engineering? If you are interested in knowing the compulsory subjects in WAEC and NECO that is necessary for studying Agricultural Engineering under the faculty of Engineering, Environment and Technology in the university, then continue reading this post as I have provided you the subject combinations required in WAEC result as well as NECO result to study Agricultural Engineering.
Referencing the introduction already made above, this is a notice to all aspirants who wish to apply for admission into any of the universities in Nigeria to study Agricultural Engineering under the faculty of Engineering, Environment and Technology that the list of compulsory subjects as well as optional subjects required in O level result (WAEC and NECO) before applying for admission into Agricultural Engineering has been published in this post.
As mentioned above, some of these NECO and WAEC subject requirements are compulsory which means you need to have at least a minimum of Credit passes (C6) in them in your o level result before you can use it to apply for admission to study Agricultural Engineering.
Also, keep in mind that some schools may have special subject combination requirements for the subjects that are eligible to be used in JAMB before one can gain admission into Agricultural Engineering. Irrespective of the subjects required by each school, English Language and Mathematics are compulsory subjects that you need to pass before you can gain admission to study Agricultural Engineering.
