JAMB Subject Combination For Computer Science And WAEC Subject Requirement

In this article, I will be writing about JAMB subject combination for computer science and WAEC subject required to complement the course. This is to aid students who are willing to study computer science to know what to look out for and to help them make the right choices of subject selection in both UTME and WAEC examination.

Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the body overseeing the processes and procedure which involves gaining entrance and admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions, education precisely. The body organizes her examination once in a year for eligible candidates who are through with their secondary education and have successfully registered for the JAMB examination.
