This post is about Science courses in Nigeria. So, I will give you a complete …

jamb subject combination for computer science courses

Computer Science Courses for 100, 200, 300 and 400 Levels

This post is about Computer Science Courses. So I would be giving you the curriculum …


  1. am good at economics and loves singing and good at acting just very confused what can i study

    • You can study any of Economics, Music and Theater Arts. It all depends on the one you are most passionate about and feel you can make a living out of.

      My advice:
      Study the one you believe can put food on your table and pay your bills comfortably. Then engage in the other ones as hobbies or side hustle. They can still be your alternative sources of income.

  2. Anioko Celestina Ifunanya

    I didn’t credit my Literature in English, can I study Theater art’s without literature?

    • According JAMB brochure, a credit pass in SSCE is an entry requirement for Theater arts in almost all the universities. I didn’t see any school that gave a waiver for that.

      But you can take time to check through the JAMB brochure by yourself.

  3. I want to study languages but I don’t have literature in my waec
    And also what are the other sbject combination for languages

    • If you are referring to O’level subjects, you basically need to credit English Language, Literature in English, One Nigerian language and two other arts subjects.

  4. I have government in my waec but not in my neco and I want to do political science in university of kwara

    • I’m not sure if you have asked any question.

      Do you have any reason why you may need to combine your WAEC and NECO results? Is there something you’d like to find out?

  5. I’m confused,am an art student,i like literature,English,Yoruba and CRS,am thinking of going for Linguistics or music because i love singing

  6. I am also confused on the course i want to study,am a art student i love government ,crs,marketing ,civic and english but dont know the exact course to study

    • If you are an art student and love English, Government and Civic Education, why not study Political Science?

      Or don’t you have interest in Political science? What might be your reasons?

  7. I’m just confused I don’t even know any course that want to read I wanted to go for law but I’m so scared because I don’t know if I’m capable to be lawyer

    • You are not alone in this state of confusion. Many other young people are in the same state. Many don’t know the right course to choose for themselves.

      But you need guidance.

      If you think that law resonates with your career aspiration and life dreams, why then are you scared?

      Are you in doubt about your level of intelligence or is it something about your personality trait?
