Engineering is one of the best courses to go for in Nigeria right now. You may want to click here for other hot cake courses in Nigeria or keep reading about how to study Engineering Courses in Jamb 2024.
Now, Engineering is very competitive in Nigerian Universities and Polytechnics. This implies that so many persons put in Engineering yearly while registering for Jamb at approved Jamb CBT Centres. As a result of this competition, the post UTME cut off mark for Engineering is usually high.
You need to do very well in Jamb 2024 If you are aiming to study Engineering in hot cake Universities like OAU, UNIBEN, UNILAG, LASU, DELSU, ABU, UI, UNN, UNILORIN, UNIPORT, FUTO, FUTA, FUNAAB and so on.
Also, you may be thinking,” why should I score very high in Jamb since post UTME will still be conducted?” It is very simple. Your Jamb score is added to your post UTME score to arrive at your final score (Aggregate). The higher your Jamb score, the more your chance of gaining admission.
It will interest you to know that there are many departments in Engineering. If you have not decided on the “best Engineering department or course” to go for, then I will suggest Electrical, Mechanical or Chemical Engineering.
The following are popular departments under the Faculty of Engineering.
- Mechanical Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Electrical/Electronic Engineering
- Electronic Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Petroleum Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Electrical/Computer Engineering
- Structural Engineering
- Production Engineering.
- Mechatronic Engineering

Engineering Subjects Combination In Jamb
How to study for Engineering in Jamb is directly proportional to the subjects you are to sit for in the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board’s (JAMB) Examination. The Jamb subjects combination for Engineering are:
- Use Of English
Jamb Use Of English For Engine Boys:
Looking at the four subjects above, Science students have a big challenge in one of them. Without beating about the bush, most science students are scared of English.
While many science students agree that they are not good at English, others assume that English doesn’t need to be studied.
Now, don’t assume that you know English; actually know it. Ensure to cover everything Jamb Use of English syllabus expects you to know. To do very well in the use of English, ensure that you have the following tools:
- Flashlearners English Videos
- Jamb English Syllabus
- Jamb English Past Questions
- Flashlearnes Jamb App
- Jamb series with flash Isaac
- How I will help you pass
Don’t study outside the Jamb syllabus. The aim is not to look intelligent but to pass Jamb once and for all.
After all these, don’t be disappointed when your lowest score in Jamb comes from the Use of English. It is normal for science students to score low in the English Language (Your case may the different).
For many Jamb candidates going for Engineering, Mathematics is not a problem. Because of this, they ignore the subject and so end up getting disappointed at their score in Maths.
The beauty of Jamb mathematics is that it is very easy. Just understand the topic and the formulars to use, then you are good to go.
For those going for Engineering, Mathematics is the easiest subject to score high in Jamb 2024. Ensure to score as high mark as possible in your mathematics.
Nobody really loves Physics. Some of us just pretend that it is our best subject. Physics in one subject that doesn’t respect the fact that you know the formula.
Whether you know the formulae or not, you still need to use your “coconut”. You need to always think outside the box to get the correct answers.
One thing about Jamb Physics is that all the options seem correct. You need to be very careful and smart to pick the right option. Generally, Physics require you to think deep.
Engineers And Jamb Chemistry:
Chemistry is volatile; you need to be versatile. Chemistry is not difficult, just that it is one subject you can easily forget.
You can study a topic in chemistry today, understand it, then forget the next day. Because of this, many students tend to conclude that chemistry is very difficult to understand.
The more you study chemistry, the more you are used to it. The book you study all the time becomes part of you while the one you are scared of runs away from you gradually.
If you leave chemistry for one week, chemistry will leave you for one month. Don’t cheat on chemistry too much with other subjects. Chemistry is easily heart-broken.
