List of Subjects That Are/Are Not in JAMB UTME


Let’s talk about the subjects candidates can write in JAMB UTME and those you can’t. Of course, we both know there are numerous subjects while you’re in secondary school. Some of these SSCE (WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, orĀ NBAIS) subjects are equally written in UTME.


These subjects could be divided into three:


  1. Science subjects
  2. Art subjects and
  3. Social Science or Commercial subjects


As an art, science, or commercial student, who wishes to write JAMB UTME, you may want to know the list of available subjects you can write in UTME. Knowing this, before going to the CBT center for your JAMB registration, will help you decide on the three other subjects to add to English as your JAMB subjects.

In this post, I will not only be giving you the list of the official subjects available for picking for and writing in UTME, but I will also let you know the best-recommended subjects for your proposed course and those you can’t find in the choices of UTME subjects.
