Correct Subject Combination

Using the correct subject combination for your course saves you a lot of costs and challenges in the area of obtaining a new change of course and institution form. For example, studying a course require at least 5 credit passes in not more than 2 sittings in WAEC, NECO or its equivalents. Making use of the subjects required for the course is what I mean by making use of the correct subject combination.

Course Cut Off Mark

Oftentimes candidates seeking admission into BUK search for BUK courses and their cut off mark, some rephrase by checking for courses offered in BUK and their cut off marks.
