What are the O level subjects required in WAEC and NECO to study Soil Science? If you are interested in knowing the compulsory subjects in WAEC and NECO that is necessary for studying Soil Science under the faculty of Agriculture 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 Soil Science.
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 Soil Science under the faculty of Agriculture that the list of compulsory subjects as well as optional subjects required in O level result (WAEC and NECO) before applying for admission into Soil Science 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 Soil Science.
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 Soil Science. 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 Soil Science.
