Course Title: Agriculture

Course Description

As you will soon see below, Agricultures are not just farmers and ranchers, there is more to agriculture than you think, where is what the course is all about. Agriculture as a course tends to expose students to the benefits of agriculture and also explore the various aspects of the agricultural industry. Agriculture offers a wide variety of occupations and field of studies which include plant science, animal science, agriscience, and agribusiness. This course will inculcate in the minds of its learners the understanding of the materials, methods, and technical standards used in the production of agricultural products and practices.

Individuals working in agriculture today are as likely to work in the city as on the farm.

Career opportunities in agriculture

The following are the many opportunities for an agriculture graduate

  1. Plant science: You may start a career in agriculture by having the study of how to grow fruits, vegetable and ornamental plants.
  2. Animal science: This career deals with animal production. You can work as a producer, feeder, marketer, manufacturer distributors and retailers.
  3. Food science: An expert in this field monitors the timeline of food from the manufacturing to the time it gets to the consumer. The endgoal is to process this food to avoid it from getting bad.

Subject Combination for JAMB

Course Cut of Point

160 is the minimum cut off point for Agriculture as specified by JAMB.

Also, the required cut-of-points for this course (Agriculture) depends on the school you are applying for, basically many schools have a different minimum cut of marks for accepting students in this area, which may be higher or even lower than JAMB recommend. Also, it is important to note that your O'level result (WAEC, NECO, GCE etc) is a primary criteria for screening, continue reading to know the required subjects you must have on your O'Level result
