WAEC: Candidates should check out all they need to know about combining O'level results.

Over the years, many candidates often ask if their schools of choice will accept the combination of O'level results or accept O'level results obtained after two sittings. Combining O'level results or using "Two sittings result" occurs when you do not have all the O'level requirements for your course of studies in a single result, which means you have to sit for another in order to make up for the remaining required subjects.

There are only three recognized bodies for conducting O'level examinations in Nigeria which are The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC), National Examination Council (NECO) and National Business and Technical Examination Board (NABTEB).

The major question candidates usually ask concerning the results obtained from the examination bodies is, " Can I combine "this" with "that"?

Please take note that almost all institutions accept two sittings and that means you can actually combine a minimum of two O'level results into that course which can be WAEC/WAEC, NECO/NECO, WAEC/NECO, WAEC/NABTEB, NECO/NABTEB, NABTEB/NABTEB and their GCE equivalents regardless of the difference between the years you sat for the exams.

However, there are also some exceptions;

1. Some schools accept 5 credits at one sitting or 6 credits at two sittings for some courses such as University of Ibadan (UI) which accepts O'level 5 credits at one sitting or 6 credits at two sittings for law.

2. UNIBEN, UNIBADAN, IMSU, UNILAG, UNILORIN, UNN, DELSU, ANSU, BOWEN, ABSU, EBSU and UNIOSUN accepts just one sitting for Medicine and Surgery (MBBS).

3. UI accepts just one sitting for Pharmacy.

4. All Polytechnics and College of Education accept a combination of results but it should not exceed two sittings.

I hope this information is useful, if you have any question, simply ask using the comment section.
