    3. Benjamin, sorry for the late reply.
      You can study any course be it science, arts or social science as long as you have the subjects to combine in JAMB. Nobody will ask what category you fall in JAMB or when you eventually get the admission.
      Just go through all the courses on the list and see which one you prefer and for which you have the required subjects.
      It may take you some time to decide but it’s worth it because this is your future.

    1. No problem. Yes Psychology has no restrictions on the subjects you can choose. Your combination is okay and any university would accept that combination. Just choose a university based on their catchment area which depends on where you’re from to increase your chances.

    1. Amina, you mustn’t do Accounting or Commerce to study Business Admin even though it gives you an edge. You can even use English, Maths, Econs and Govt.
      You can also do criminology which takes 4 years in Nigeria and about 3 years abroad depending on the location.
