In UNIBEN 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.
