  1. Is futher maths complusory for actuarial science?because i heard if u dont have futher maths u might be admitted but during screening the person will be sent back home…how true is this?

    1. The compulsory O-level subjects for Actuarial Science are English Language, Mathematics and Economics.

      You can then complete the 5 required subjects with any two of Financial Accounting, Data Processing, CRS/IRS, Further Mathematics, Geography, Government, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Commerce, Civic Education, Insurance.

      So you can be admitted for Actuarial Science without Further Mathematics.

  2. Please,I did biology,accounting, commerce,civic and insurance in my O’level, what are the likely two subjects to been chosen to complete the 5 core subjects

    1. Any two from them can be chosen. Hope you listed the results according to performance. Hope you put your best highest.

  3. Pls I need urgent replies

    NB:it’s for Unilag and my jamb combination is English,math,economics and commerce

        1. It is surprising to us too because we would expect the school to use an admission requirements they published before admission application forms were filled and submitted.

          1. I have all my compuslsory O’ level result except further maths and chemistry. Am i good to go and what can be my subject combination in jamb

    1. Going by the 2018-2019 Unilag admission requirements for Actuarial Science you will need to replace Accounting with any of Geography, Government, Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Commerce in your UTME subjects to be good to go for Actuarial Science.

  4. please my subject combination is maths english account and commerce is it okay for Actuarial science i did not do economics but I have it in my olevel any hope or which course fits my subj combo under faculty of administration

    1. For Actuarial Science you must do Economics in both your O-levels and UTME. Financial Accounts is not a required UTME subject for Actuarial Science.

  5. So I am a science student and I want to offer this course
    What would be the best subject combination for waec and jamb?

    1. Dear Lydia your best subject combination for Actuarial Science depends on you. One possible combination is that you must have English, Mathematics and Economics. Then you make up with one or two of Physics, Chemistry or Biology.

    1. Your UTME subject combination is fine for Actuarial Science. Your UTME score is decent.

      You also have to ensure that your O-level subjects are appropriate and that you score sufficiently high in your O-level aggregate and your post UTME to beat the 2019 cut-off for Actuarial Science.

  9. Good afternoon sir,i want to know whether principle ot accounts is still a utme requirement for actuarial science 2019/2020. Because my jamb combination is English,Mathematics,Economics and Principles of account

  10. Sir

    Thanks in anticipation

  11. My o’level result is ENG-C5,MATHS-A1,GOVT-A1,ECONS-C6 and F/MATHS-B3
    UTME 2020 COMBINATION are MATHS ENGLISH GOVT and ECONS
    AM I GOOD TO GO?

    AND HOW MANY YEARS IS IT?

  12. Sir,one more question
    Since the course is under business administration,how does physics and chemistry has gone to do with it

    1. Well, the course is called ‘Actuarial SCIENCE’ afterall. So it is science intensive. You can see it as a course that applies scientific principles to solving business problems.

    1. It will not be a problem if you have met your O-level requirements and UTME requirements for your applied for course.

  13. sir please a unilag lecturer told me that if I do not have futher maths in my o’level result, then unilag would not accept me even if I have 400 score in JAMB, Sir please is futher maths really complusory??

    1. It depends on the course. For instance, Further Mathematics is required for all Engineering courses, Mathematics, and Computer Science.

        1. According to the official Unilag undergraduate requirements (2021-2022) Further Mathematics is not a ‘required’ (or compulsory) O-level subject.

          UTME Requirement: Five O/Level credit passes in English Language, Mathematics, Economics, and any two (2) of Financial Accounting, Data Processing,
          CRS/IRS, Further Mathematics, Geography, Government, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Commerce, Civic Education, Insurance.

          UTME Subject: English Language, Mathematics, Economics and any one (1) of Geography, Government, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Commerce.
