One of the common mistakes candidates make when choosing course of study during UTME registration is picking a course they do not have the O-level/ UTME subject combination or requirement for. This mistake is one of the major reasons candidates fail to gain admission into higher institutions every year.
The reason many candidates make this mistake is because they are not informed. Some of them believe that once you have 5 credit pass in your O’level including English and Mathematics, you can apply for any course. Others believe that the subjects you sit for during UTME do not matter.
The truth is any course of study you want to apply for in any university, Polytechnic etc. has specified O’level/UTME subject combination/requirement. Before applying for any course in any institution, it is advisable you know the acceptable O’level/UTME subject combination for that particular course in that institution.
For instance, if you are applying for an engineering course, you will have to sit for mathematics in UTME. Similarly, if you are going for any medical related course, you will have to sit for Biology in UTME.
Many have been disqualified from gaining admission for the simple reason that they did not meet the O’level/UTME subject requirement for the particular course they applied for.
