JAMB Requirements for Medicine & Surgery

Often times, students fail to gain admission for the MBBS program due to their low JAMB scores. This is why we have provided you with the necessary information with regards to the JAMB exam also known as UME.

Prior to writing the UME, you should have written your WAEC exams. And there are 5 WAEC subjects you must pass to study Medicine and Surgery. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE. The subjects include English Language, Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology.

Just in case you don’t know what Medicine and Surgery does for you, here are a few highlights.

  • Provide students with a broad and balanced foundation of sound scientific, professional platform for the production of medical doctors who would be capable of working anywhere in Nigeria and be acceptable by the international community;
  • Provide such training as would equip these future health personnels to render care at Primary Health Care (PHC) level;
  • Develop in students the ability to apply knowledge and skills to solving theoretical and practical issues and satisfy internationally recognized standards, and undertake postgraduate training towards specialization within and outside the country; and
  • Train medical doctors with sufficient management ability to play a leadership role in health care delivery and develop a range of transferable skills that are of value in Medical practice.

Overall, the curriculum of Medicine and Surgery aims at educating and training of competent medical doctors and other health personnel for the promotion of good health and eradication of diseases. It is also designed to promote the integration of modern scientific ideas in medicine and to develop research capability. In addition, the programme emphasizes the inter-relationships of various clinical disciplines and their synthesis into a unified code for the solution of problems.

Now, let’s go to the crux of the post. The JAMB UTME subject requirements for Medicine and Surgery are Physics, Chemistry and Biology. You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME. Anything short of that means you can’t be admitted to study Medicine.
