  1. My son had this papers in Waec:Eng,maths biology, civic edu,data processing, Economics, Commerce and financial Accounting. Can he obtain foundation form because the subject combo is Acc,bus studies,economics. Can any of the subject replace business stud?

    1. First, from what you have listed your son has met the O-level requirement for Accounting.

      Second, the direct entry requirement for Accounting are: Very good passes in three JUPEB subjects: Economics and any other two subjects from Accounting, Business Studies, Government, and Geography.

      So, yes Business Studies can be replaced with Government or Geography.

      Thirdly, if your son decides to take Business Studies as one of his 3 JUPEB subjects, that he doesn’t have it in his O-levels would not affect his application.

      Yes you can obtain the Foundation Form for your son.

  2. I had in my o level: maths c6, English c4, commerce b2, government b3, economics b3
    also in my utme I did: maths, English, economics and commerce. I had 276.
    and I choose accounting in Unilag.

  3. I choose accounting in unilag. my o level result is: maths c6, English c4, economics b3, commerce b2, government b3
    in my utme, I did: maths, English, economics and commerce. I had 276.
    am I good to go for accounting in unilag?

      1. I actually filled in government for Utme but when I got to the registration centre the jamb officer that was registering me said that commerce is what is required for accounting not Government ..I told him unilag required Government but he told me I was not “Okay” and registered commerce for me .

    1. With a C6 in Government in addition to the results listed above, yes, you have the required O-level subjects to study Accounting in Unilag.

  4. what about having a b3 in Account c6 in economics c6 in English b3 in maths and c4 in crk can one study account in unilag with that

  5. Sir, I choose UNILAG for Accounting -below are my O’level result Eng C5; Math B3 ; Econs C6 ; Book Keeping A1, Civic Education B2 . I hope the combination of these 5 subjects is acceptable? because i have c5 in Financial Accounting & c6 in Government

    My Jamb score is 254 (eng, math econs & govt) and Post UTME 16
    native of Lagos
    i hope i stand a chance ?

    1. You are going to use Financial Accounting and Government to calculate your O-level aggregate because Book Keeping and Civic Education are not required O-level subject for Accounting in Unilag.

      Your o-level aggregate is 12/20. UTME is 254/8 = 31.75. With post UTME of 16 your aggregate score is 12 + 31.75 + 16 = 59.75 points.

      The merit cut-off for Accounting in 2017 was 68.65. See: http://lagtutor.com/unilag_cutoffs.php

  6. Sir, I want to study business administration in unilag and my o’level result is Maths B2,English C5,economics C6 ,civic edu. C6,commerce C6, computer studies C4.Government C6 Am i good to go? Or which course can i study with these result?

    1. You are not good to go for Business Administration Mary.

      Maths, English Language, Economics and Government meet 4 of the required 5 subjects. The 5th subject has to be one of Financial Accounting, Geography, CRS/IRS, or Business Management.

      The courses in Business Administration faculty that your subjects meet the o-level requirements are: Accounting, Actuarial Science, Insurance, and Banking & Finance.

  7. I want to study accounting .My o’level result is : Maths A1 , English C4 ,Economics B2, Biology B3 and Government B2 as required .
    I scored 312 in my Utme exam and my subject combination is Maths .eng.commerce and economics .
    I calculated my aggregate and I had 79% .
    Can I study accounting?

    1. You cannot study accounting in Unilag having written Commerce as one of your UTME subjects.

      You should have changed to another course in the faculty of Business Administration before post UTME.

  8. Hi there, Mr Lagtutor, Well done by the way.

    My WAEC subjects are Eng, Math,Econs,Phy,Chem,Geo,Agric, Yor,Bio.

    I’d love to study Accounting or maybe Actuarial Science. I wonder, what would be my subject combo for WAEC and UTME?

    Your doing a great job.

    1. Thank you for the commendation Cyril.

      Assuming that you have made at least C6 in the O-level subjects you mentioned then your 5 required Olevel subjects for Accounting are English, Mathematics, Economics, Geography and Biology.

      Your UTME subjects for Accounting are English Language, Mathematics, Economics and any of Financial Accounts, Further Mathematics, Geography, Government, Biology and Literature-in-English.

      For Actuarial Science once you have chosen your compulsory English Language, Mathematics and Economics for both your O-level as well as UTME subjects any of your other subjects except Agric. Science can be used to complete your subjects combination.

      1. Thanks, Mr Lagtutor for your prompt reply.

        Here are my grades:

        English-B3
        Math-A1
        Physics-A1
        Chemistry-B2
        Agricultural Science-A1
        Economis-B3
        Biology-B3
        Geography-A1
        Yoruba-C6

        Please,would my UTME subject combo have to correspond to the WAEC combo.
        For example, suppose I use English, Economics, Math, Biology, Geography.

        Would my UTME have to include Biology or Geography, apart from the compulsory English and Economics.

        Because I intend for my UTME to be: Eng, Econs, Math, F/Math.

        Thanks immensely, sir.

        PS: I notice wrong subject combo has disappointed many, I want to learn from that experience.

        1. Hello Cyril, UTME subject combination does not have to correspond with O-level (WAEC) subjects.

          Your intended UTME combination of English, Econommics, Mathematics and Further Mathematics is fine.
