The Essence of Pre-Science Programme

The Nnamdi Azikiwe University Pre-Science Programme was designed to provide intensive and most effective remedial and preparatory learning programme.

Many of you joined the programme in order to boost your JAMB score and widen your knowledge about the expectations in the University. Also, to have greater chances of meeting the minimum requirements for admission into Nnamdi Azikiwe University Programmes. This may be stressful and daunting but I can assure you that it is worth all the efforts you put in to achieve your set goals.

The Programme covers a variety of subjects: for the Core Science Students, the subjects include; Mathematics, English, Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Geography while for the Non-Core Science Students include; Mathematics, English, Geography, Economics, Government and Literature, thus, making it a total of six (6) subjects. Students are advised to write all the subjects so that their four (4) best subjects would be selected to ascertain their final average. The outcome together with JAMB score will be used to determine average score that will determine courses/programmes befitting the students.

For students who didn’t write this year’s JAMB (which might cause delay in their chances of gaining admission into the University, you are encouraged to stay positive and motivated because the 6-month validity of Pre-Science results has been extended to Two (2) academic years. This will avail you the opportunity to use your Pre-Science results already passed, in addition to your JAMB score for admission in the subsequent academic session.

For students to utilize this validity (two years result extension), they MUST score 210 (for candidates applying for Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Radiography) in their new JAMB result and have scored 200 and above in their Pre-Science result. At the end of the programme, the students will be issued Certificate of Participation.


  1. Gaining admission into the University with ease.
  2. Preparing for a high score in JAMB.
  3. Feeling at ease with Year 1 and 2 after gaining admission into the University.
  4. Aiming and achieving higher results due to the reading and learning skills acquired during the programme.

The commitments that you need to make for success in the programme are READ, LEARN and WORK THE TALK.

I know that some of you may be hesitant to participate in this programme and may think that you are already good enough. However, I encourage you to give it a trial. You may be surprised at how much you can learn. The Pre-Science remedial programme is a valuable opportunity that you must utilize to achieve your dream of attending University.
