In line with Science practice worldwide and senate directives, the 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 grades in hands-on practical’s 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, endeavour to go to the nearest practical centre of your study centre for your hands-on practical experience.

Practical sessions shall hold Monday to Saturday, 9.00 am to 6.00 pm in three sessions daily. The 3rd session (i.e to pm) is to accommodate working-class students who would need to be at work in the morning.

The Saturday is particularly meant for those outside the state of the practical centre but within the same geopolitical zone.

All students must come with their Laboratory coat (NO EXCUSE WILL BE CONSIDERED)

Strict adherence to the above is mandatory to guarantee success.

Students should note that practical examinations shall be taken at the end of the exercise.

Thank you for your anticipated co-operation.
