RSU Admission Requirements
RSU admission requirements is the first step you must take note of when searching for available courses in RSU. At RSU and other tertiary institutions, courses offered have their distinct entry requirements. However, some requirements are the same for courses under the same faculty. In RSU for example, you must have obtained at least 5 credit passes in your O’level result which must include mathematics and English language and three other subjects as it relates to your course of study. Note that some courses do not require a Credit in mathematics as a requirement for admission.
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
After confirmation of the admission requirements and correct subject combination for your course, you are to check the course cut off mark. Oftentimes candidates seeking admission into RSU search for RSU courses and their cut off mark, some rephrase by checking for courses offered in RSU and their cut off marks. These show how important cut off marks can be in relation to courses offered.
In summary of the above, you must confirm the admission entry requirements, subject combination for your course and minimum RSU cut off mark for the course in the previous session as a guide to selecting the course if you must study such in the Rivers State University.
