DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS

  1. General Admission Requirements

 

  1. A senior secondary school certificate (SSCE) of (NECO or WAEC) or GCE ‘O’ Level with passes in 5 subjects including English Language, three of which must be a credit level at the same sitting or 4 credits at two sittings two of the credits must be relevant to the coerces the candidates wishes to offer credit / passes in English Language and or mathematics may be required.
  2. Successful candidates in the PRE- NCE final examination
  3. All candidates to be considered for admission must enroll for and write the selection examination organized by an accredited body such JAMB.
  4. It should be noted that some College in addition to all of the above, administer their own elimination test or interviews for some courses. This is legitimate.
  5. Additional Admission Requirements

A candidate must possess at least a pass in mathematics at the same Secondary School Certificate level, and a credit in Physics at the same or equivalent level (e.g. NTC from National Business and Technical Examination Board NABTEB).

  1. Graduation Requirements

A total of 36 credit unit in the Department are compulsory. Students for Mathematics / Physics combination are required to take CHE 111 (General Chemistry 2Cr) as elective while students of physics and other subjects combinations other than Mathematics are to take MAT’125 (introduction to computer studies 1 Cr).

Every Physics students is required to carry a minimum of 36 credits in addition to other compulsory courses such as TP and project. The breakdown is as follows:

Physics                 -36 Credits

Second Subject   -36 Credits

Education            -36 credits

Teaching Practice             -06 Credits

General Studies                 -18 Credits
