Are you looking for the list of courses you can study without Literature In English in Jamb or O-Level? Or probably the list of courses you can study with D7, E8 or F9 in WAEC  or NECO.

If the answer you have for the question above is yes, then relax as we have the answer to your question.


Before we jump into providing you the list of courses one can apply for without Literature In English, let’s take a little break and analyse why people ask or seek for this answer.

There are two reasons why some people search for courses that does not require Literature In English.

1. Those that failed Literature In English (Had D7, E8 or F9) in their O-Level Results (WAEC or NECO)

2. Those that are having issues understanding Literature In English or don’t have much idea about the course but managed to Pass during their O-Level examination.

3. As a bonus, another set of people may be those that did not write Literature In English in Jamb.

Before gaining admission into any higher institution be it University, Polytechnic or Colleges of Education to study a particular course, some certain requirements are needed from each applicant for the course in question which they applied for.

Some of those requirements involve having a minimum of Credit in Literature In English in the O-Level certificate (WAEC, NECO, GCE etc) for some courses.

This means that the individual must credit Literature In English before applying for the course. Due to some inconveniences, many candidates are unable to have a minimum of Credit (C4, C5 or C6) in their WAEC, NECO or GCE results. Some end up having D7, E8 or F9 in the subject which in turn makes them ineligible to apply for that course.

Does that mean that all hope has been lost because their didn’t pass Literature In English in WAEC or NECO? Not at all. In this post, we are going to list out the courses one can apply for without Literature In English.
