For Admissions into a Nigerian university, a prospective candidate must have at 5 least credit passes in his core subjects, including English and mathematics in his O’levels exams. One way students have attempted fixing this problem is by combining results of two sittings. If not done properly though, this could lead to the student loosing the admission. I have seen it happen. There are some schools that accept two sittings and some others don’t. However in those schools that accept two sittings, there are some departments that do not accept two sittings. Below are ten schools that accept a combination of 2 O’level results.
