Can I use Combined Results (Two O’level Sittings) For Admission?

All universities in Nigeria accept combined results i.e. WAEC and GCE, WAEC and NECO, WAEC and WAEC, NECO and NECO, etc. results. However, if you are using two sittings you must have six credit passes in your result against five (5) credit passes if you are using one sitting.
