Courses You Can Study Without Maths In Nigeria

Courses You Can Study Without Maths In Nigeria—This article contains a comprehensive list of courses available in Nigeria in 2022 that do not require mathematics (maths). Mathematics is the most feared subject in many Nigerian schools, particularly among secondary school students preparing for university life, because it requires a large number of calculations, the majority of which are so complex that they scare the living daylights out of many of these students in the country, even if they will not admit it.

Due to the complexity of mathematics, many prospective university, polytechnic, and college of education students in Nigeria would prefer to take a course that has nothing to do with mathematics in the JAMB UTME, and would completely avoid it if given the choice between physics and mathematics for science students, or any other subject for that matter, and mathematics for arts and commercial students.

This is not to say that these students are less intelligent than math gurus, but for whatever reason, they believe mathematics or any other subject requiring complex calculations is not their calling in life, and thus they would rather not bother much about it because they stand to gain nothing by abandoning math in favor of other subjects and courses that are more aligned with their strengths.

If you are one of the many prospective students of tertiary institutions in Nigeria who dislike mathematics and have been wondering, “Is there any course in Nigeria that does not require mathematics in JAMB before I gain admission into a university or polytechnic?” then this article is for you because we have compiled a comprehensive list of all the courses in the country that do not require mathematics before enrolling in any of the numerous tertiary institutions in the country.

It is true that candidates applying to most, if not all, universities in Nigeria must obtain the required grades in mathematics and English language at the O’Level, as well as three (3) other subjects relevant to their course of study. If you’ve been wondering how to determine the correct JAMB subject combination for your desired course of study, we’ve addressed that in the article linked above; please take a look.

However, for courses that do not require mathematics in JAMB, your grade in mathematics at WAEC or NECO is irrelevant, as you will be required to pass English Language (which is extremely compulsory) and any other subjects relevant to your field of study before being considered for admission to your school of choice. The most critical thing is to understand your subject combinations for the courses you wish to study in institutions of higher learning in order to avoid making errors when filling out your JAMB form.

Due to a lack of information on this subject, many prospective students in Nigeria have been denied admission. This is why Nigerian Guide has taken the time to provide a detailed explanation on this subject so that candidates seeking admission into the country’s universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education will be armed with the necessary information before taking action to determine their academic futures. Having said that, let us now look at the list of courses available in the country that do not require mathematics as a prerequisite for JAMB admission.
