In line with Science practice worldwide and senate directives, Faculty of Sciences is incorporating
science practical as compulsory for all students taking science courses.
Considering that laboratory
practical is an integral part of science courses, student’s grade in hands-on practical shall constitute
15% of the TMA.
Therefore, as you register for science courses in your different programmes listed below:
Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Science, Mathematics, Mathematics & Computer
and Physics, endeavor to go to the nearest practical centre to your study centre for your hands-on
There are six practical centres throughout Nigeria, one in each geopolitical zone as shown below:
All practical registrations close by 4th August, 2019 to enable groupings to be made and practical

within the same geopolitical zone.
All students must come with their Laboratory coat (NO EXCUSE WILL BE CONSIDERED)
