Can I get admission to study Accounting without passing Economics in WAEC?

Dear sir,

I want to study accounting. My results are
English B3
Mathematics C5
Economics F9
Civic C4
Book keeping B3
Account B3
Office practice B3

I am afraid that the failure in Economics will make the result incomplete

Please advise.

Dear Niyi

Credit in economics is compulsory to study accounting in 99% of good schools.

This is the requirement per JAMB brochure:

UTME requirement

Five SSCE credit passes
including English
Language, Mathematics,
Economics and any
other two relevant
subjects.
For NBC holders, the
other two relevant
subjects could be from
any of Accounting,
Principles of
Accounts,
Commerce, Office
Practice and Secretarial
Duties.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS

(i) UYO requires credit in Economics.
(ii) PHC does not accept commercial subjects
except Financial Accounting or Business.
(iii) LAGOS requires five ‘O’ level credits to include
English language, Mathematics, Economics
and any other Science, Social Science or Arts
subject.
(iv) PHC does not accept Office Practice and
Secretarial Studies.
(v) BIU accepts credit/merit in English language
and Mathematics at TC II as ‘O’/level
equivalent.
(vi) OOU requires ‘O’ level credits in any 3 of
Accounting, Business Methods, Commerce,
Economics, Statistics, Government and
Geography. IRK/CRK, Yoruba and History.
(vii) PLSU and CALABAR accept Commerce in place
of Economics.
(viii) AUN same as in Finance

So you can see that it’s a very tight one.
