Jamb Subject Combination for Mechanical Engineering (WAEC & DE) Requirements

Jamb Subject Combination for Mechanical Engineering

Hello Readers, In this article, I will share more light on Jamb and WAEC subject combination for Mechanical Engineering with Direct Entry Requirement. Firstly, What is Subject Combination? It is a list of subjects that include both compulsory and optional subjects. However, It is compulsory for a student to have a knowledge of the required subject combination for the course he or she wants to study in the institution.

Subject Combination is also a factor that denied students for studying his decide course in the university aside from not scoring the minimum cut off mark of such course. Once you choose the wrong subject combination for Mechanical Engineering it is either you change from Mechanical engineering to another course that goes along with the subject combination you’ve chosen or you wait for another year.
