JAMB Subject Combination and Requirement for Geophysics

Planning to study Geophysics this year in any Nigerian University? Then you need to write register for JAMB and know the Geophysics jamb subject combination.

I won’t just be writing the Jamb subject combination for Geophysics, but I will be writing on the requirements needed from applicants/candidates.

JAMB Subject Combination for Geophysics

Here on this page, I will be showing you, the following as listed below:

♦ Geophysics UTME subject combination,
♦ O’level Requirements
♦ Direct Entry (DE) requirement for Geophysics in Faculty/College of Science.

Like we usually do, I will be showing you here, each Nigerian Universities offering Geophysics special consideration (waiver) for this particular course.

Take note that the UTME and Direct requirement below was lifted from JAMB Official Brochure. It is the Accurate and Official version for the above course.


♦ English Language(mandatory)
♦ Physics,
♦ Chemistry,
♦ You can choose either Biology or Mathematics.

Meaning of Special Consideration (Waiver) in JAMB

The Meaning of Waiver or special Consideration in JAMB means the additional requirement for a particular course in a particular school. Please take note that in a few cases, certain Universities do have a special consideration for either O’level Requirement, UTME Subject Combination or Direct Entry Requirement.

If your selected school fall into this particular category, it’s wise that you follow up this requirement. If you fail to follow your selected school (the school you chose during your jamb registration) waiver requirement, your admission will certainly be denied.


LAGOS, FUTA, and OAU require Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry.

CALABAR does not accept Biology.

FUPRE requires Physics, Mathematics, and Chemistry.

FED-OYEEKITI requires Physics and Mathematics, Chemistry or Biology.

OSUSTECH requires Physics, Mathematics and any one (1) of Chemistry, Biology, and Geography.


Please take note that this is the O’level Requirement for GEOPHYSICS (UTME CANDIDATES)

Five (5) SSC credit passes in the following subjects listed below:

♦ English Language,
♦ Mathematics,
♦ Physics,
♦ Chemistry/Biology.
