Hello Readers, In this article, I will share more light on Jamb and WAEC subject combination for Mathematics with Direct Entry Requirement. Firstly, What is Subject Combination? It is a list of subjects that include both compulsory and optional subjects. However, It is compulsory for a student to have a knowledge of the required subject combination for the course he or she wants to study in the institution.

Subject Combination is also a factor that denied students from studying their decided course in the university aside from not scoring the minimum cut-off mark of such course. Once you choose the wrong subject combination for Mathematics it is either you change to another course that goes along with the subject combination you’ve chosen or you wait for another year. However, for you to study Mathematics in any institution you must be a science student.

**O’Level Mathematics Subject Combination. (WAEC or NECO)**

Before obtaining the UTME form, you must have written or registered for any O’Level examination like WAEC, NECO, or NABTEB examination. A student willing to study this course **“Mathematics”** must have at least a minimum of five (5) credit in his or her O’Level result which includes:

**JAMB Subject Combination for Mathematics**

To become a graduate of Mathematics in any institution in Nigeria, Firstly, you have to participate in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination which is conducted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

This examination always comes up once a year and the subject combination for Mathematics are:

**Use Of English****Mathematics**- Any two of
