What is the Jamb subjection combination for Biology as a course? This is one question that is currently begging for answers. I won’t only be sharing with you, the Biology subject combinations, but the JAMB and school’sAdmission requirements for this course.

Today on this website, I will be sharing with you, the official UTME subject combination, O’level & Direct Entry (DE) requirement for Microbiology in Faculty/College of Science. I won’t be stopping there, as I will be showing you, the special consideration (waiver) for the course.

The admission requirements and UTME/D.E subject combinations for MicroBiology was officially published on JAMB Brochure. Meaning that all information shared here is 100% accurate and the official version for Biology course.

Meaning of Special Consideration (Waiver)

This is to clear the misconceptions behind this word, Waiver or Special Consideration in JAMB. What JAMB means when they say Waiver, is that there is an additional requirement for a particular course in a particular school.

Some courses do have general requirements. However, some insitution do have a special consideration for either O’level Requirement, UTME Subject Combination or Direct Entry Requirement, if your school / course falls into this catergory, please carefully read about this.
