Reasons Why Science Courses Are Important

• One of the first reasons why science courses are the best to study is that it affects our everyday lives (in our homes, offices, industries, etc) and gives us insight on our actions and decisions.
• Another top reason is that Science Courses provide excellent job opportunities
• It is no secret that science provides solutions to a myriad of domestic, societal and industrial problems.
• Science is essential in the development of alternative sources of energy.
• When we talk about the bedrock of development and societal advancement, we reason science.
• No doubt, Science is fun.
• It makes you analytical and logical in reasoning.

Science Courses Admission Requirements

• All candidates applying for admission into any Nigerian institution to study any science course are required to have five O’level credit in not more than two sittings, including the following;

  • Mathematics,
  • English,
  • Chemistry.

However, the remaining two subjects could be:

  • Biology,
  • Physics,
  • Agricultural science,
  • Geography.

• However, I’ve discovered that Physics and Biology are required for most science courses.

• While for candidates seeking admission through Direct Entry (D.E), they are required to have at least Upper credit in science related course. And also if you want to use Cambridge A level result, you must at least have BBB in the following subjects listed below;

  • Physics,
  • Chemistry,
  • Biology, and
  • Mathematics

Take note that three (3) of these subjects are needed depending on the course you want to study.

But if you’re planning to study in any Nigerian Universities, you must sit and participate in the UTME (click here for more information on UTME registration) and score above the JAMB cut-off mark required by your selected University.

Most Nigerian tertiary institution requires their candidates to sit for a Post-UTME and score above 55% for those who want to study science courses in Nigeria.
