JAMB Subject Requirements for Russian Studies

Russian Studies

When applying for Russian Studies through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Nigeria, it’s crucial to note that the specific subjects you choose can impact your eligibility for this program.

Russian has over 258 million total speakers worldwide,] and is the most spoken Slavic language, the most spoken native language in Europe, as well as the most geographically widespread language in Eurasia. Large numbers of Russian speakers are residents of other countries, such as Israel and Mongolia. It is the world’s seventh-most spoken language by number of native speakers, and the world’s eighth-most spoken language by total number of speakers. Russian is also the second-most widespread language on the Internet, after English.

Russian is written using the Cyrillic script; it distinguishes between consonant phonemes with palatal secondary articulation and those without—the so-called “soft” and “hard” sounds. Almost every consonant has a hard or soft counterpart, and the distinction is a prominent feature of the language. Another important aspect is the reduction of unstressed vowels. Stress, which is unpredictable, is not normally indicated orthographically, though an optional acute accent may be used to mark stress, such as to distinguish between homographic words, e.g. замо́к (zamók – a ‘lock’) and за́мок (zámok – a ‘castle’), or to indicate the proper pronunciation of uncommon words or names.

The Bachelor’s Degree in Russian is competitive. Knowing the prerequisites will enable you have seamless registration and also avoid unnecessary mistakes.
