    1. The required UTME subjects for English in Unilag are: “English Language, Literature-in-English and any two of CRS/IRS, French, History / Government and any Nigerian Language.”

      Economics is not one of the Unilag required UTME subjects for English. You are advised to apply for a change of course to a course that your subject combination meets the requirement.

          1. No. You need to replace CRS with any of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology or Economics.

  4. scored 221 in the just concluded exams.applied for sociology in unilag..utme subjects: eng,commerce,lit in eng, government..what are my chances

    1. Your UTME subject combination are fine for sociology. To be competitive for Sociology in Unilag you needed 250 in your UTME. (Recommended scores are: UTME – 250, O-level aggregate – 15/20, and post UTME – 21/30 or 70%)

      It now depends on your O-Level aggregate and your post UTME to make up the shortfall.

  5. Please what can I study with d combination of eng econs government nd commerce..please ansa needed asap…in unilag?

  6. pls wwhat course can i study with eng econs govt and commerce..as my two major arts subj were cancelled by waec lit and c.r.k…pls what course in unilag..am thinkin of philosophy isit cool??

    1. You needed 245 to be competitive for Sociology.

      But with 210 a lot now depends on your post UTME and your O-level aggregate.

  7. I score 250 in my utme and I want to study sociology in unilag but I don’t ave economics in my o.level result… and I checked the requirement but i don’t understand the subject combination for sociology that they said “and any other Nigeria language

    1. Economics is not compulsory for Sociology. It would have helped if you had Economics though.

      If you tell me the O-level subjects you credited at ONE sitting I will reply if you have the subject requirements for Sociology.

  8. I scored 219 in the just concluded jamb. My subject combinations in jamb are Eng, Maths, Economics and Commerce. In waec I have at a sitting: Eng, Maths, Gov, Econs, Civic Edu, Commerce, Accounts, Biology. Plz what course can I apply for in Unilag

  9. these are my olevel results
    commerce–B3
    account–A1
    economic–D7
    govt–C4
    civic–B2
    English–B3
    mathematics–B3
    biology–C5
    so wat shud i do pls

    1. You need an Art subject (Lit-in-Eng, CRS/IRS, or any Nigerian Language) to complete your 5 required O-level subjects for Sociology in Unilag. This means you do not have the 5 required O-level subjects for Sociology.

      A Social Science course which you meet the O-level requirements is Social Work. But then, I do not yet know which subjects you wrote in your UTME.

        1. Your UTME subject combination is fine for Social Work. I advise that you apply for a change of course to Social Work.

  10. Unilag requires three art or social science subjects.
    So, my jamb combo are English,govt,commerce and economics
    Biko, am i on the track?

    1. You are not on track Gloria.

      The UTME combo for Sociology is: English Language, two Social Sciences and one Arts subject.

      ** Mathematics is accepted.

      You have no Arts subject or Mathematics in there.

  11. I got 236 in the previous jamb exam(utme subject English,Government,Mathematics,Economics).Am i good to go for sociology

    1. Your UTME subjects are fine for sociology. 236 in JAMB qualifies you for post UTME buy you must score high in your post UTME. Your O-level results must also meet the requirements for sociology.

  12. My olevel:
    Commerce B3
    Marketing B2
    Economics B3
    Geography C4
    Government A1
    Civic-edu A1
    English B3
    Maths B3
    Biology C6.

    Utme subjects:
    English
    Government
    Economics
    Geography.
    Pls can I study sociology

    1. Dear Oreva, you won’t be accepted for Sociology in Unilag because you do not meet the ‘one Arts subject’ requirement in both your O-level subjects and your UTME combination. You need any of Literature-in-English, CRS/IRS, or any Nigerian Language on both sides of the requirements.

      Your combinations are perfect for Geography though in the same faculty of Social Science.

  13. Sir am I good to for sociology, 235,
    Utme -English, govt, literature, crk
    O level-maths ,English, economics, crs ,govt,literature

    1. You are within reach of the recommended UTME score of 241 for sociology.

      Now you have to make up ground with very good O-Level results and an excellent performance in the Unilag post UTME.

  14. Sir can declaration of age be used instead of birth cert, I can’t find mine(birth cert
    Secondly-the local govt area cert of origin,is it the same with cert of origin/identification
    *Must we use the statement of result or origin waec cert for the post utme registration,can’t we use the printed out copy
    If one uses it ,hope he or she won’t be penalised
