Can I Gain Admission With F9 In English Language?


No, it is not possible for you to gain admission when you failed English language in your o level result.

But why is this?

English language and mathematics are compulsory subjects needed for admission in Nigeria.

And you must also have at least credit passes (C4, C5 or C6) in these subjects before you can be considered as eligible for admission.

There are two possible solutions, which are:

  1. You sit for another waec examination in the coming year. You need to make your result in the next waec you want to sit for. What do I mean by that?.  Just make sure you get at least credit passes in English language, mathematics and 3 other subjects relevant to your course.
  2. Now, here comes the second solution. You can register for NECO, waec gce or neco gce exams. But make sure that the institution you want to apply for, accepts two sittings in your o level result. You will just have to combine your neco/gce result with your waec result that you had f9 in it.

Am sure that any of two can be easily done. Just prepare very well for the exams.
