To study Industrial Mathematics at any University in Nigeria, there are requirements you must meet such as the right O’Level & JAMB Subject Combination and other requirements.
You are expected to have all the proper requirements such as the proper O’Level subject, choose the proper JAMB UTME subjects, also provide the proper Direct Entry requirements, and more to be qualified to study Industrial Mathematics in Nigeria.
On this page, we are going to show you all the proper requirements that you must have to proceed with your UTME/Direct Entry registration. We covered both the UTME and Direct Entry (DE) admission requirements and you can find them below. In addition, we also added the list of Universities where you can study Industrial Mathematics as well as their special considerations (Waiver).
UTME & Direct Entry Requirement For Industrial Mathematics
We urge all UTME and Direct Entry candidates applying for Industrial Mathematics to pay attention to this page. This is because it provides you with the prerequisites for this course and if you can meet the conditions, then you can forge ahead to apply for the course.
WAEC Subjects & Requirements For Industrial Mathematics
Five (5) WAEC subjects are relevant to this course and it applies to both GCE and NECO. The five (5) SSC credit passes required for Industrial Mathematics mathematics include the following:
2). English Language.
4). Two (2) other Science subjects.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS (WAIVER) REMARKS:
Also, there are certain special requirements needed by most Universities listed on this page. The requirements are sometimes slightly different from the general requirements. In such a case, you are required to satisfy the school’s special requirements (Special consideration) in order not to be denied admission by the school. Below are the special considerations for most Universities.
1). IMSU requires an ‘O’ level credit pass in Chemistry and also accepts an ‘O’ level pass in English Language.
2). DELSU accepts Mathematics, English Language, as well as any three (3) subjects from Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Further Mathematics, Geography, and Economics.
