List of Courses You Can Study Without Physics and the Universities in Nigeria Universities offering such course.
What is science without Physics? In fact, along with mathematics, physics is one of the bases of any engineering training. It consequently plays a key role in improving quality of life. Many fields such as materials science, microtechnology, and biotechnology increasingly depend on the understanding of physical phenomena.
I understand that some of you failed Physics subject in your O levels results such as WAEC, NECO or GCE. The truth is, Physics is a major science subject for every science student but not every science course demand that you pass Physics.
No worries if you are a science student but could not pass Physics. But it’s not ok if you don’t know what to do with your result. You don’t need credit in Physics to study some science courses but you definitely must have a passing grade like D7 or E8.
Some of you are sitting at home for long because you don’t have credit in Physics but I have good news for you. There are science courses you can study without having credit in Physics. It wasn’t easy coming up with this list.
There are over 37 courses you can study without having credit in Physics. Yes!!! This is true but you may never know because you have never been within the four walls of the university. besides, no university in Nigeria will inform you that there are courses you can study without Physics.
Now listen... There are few courses where Physics is not a requirement at all. The list below are courses which must include Physics but you will be given admission if you have a D7 or E8. F9 is not an option. I repeat F9 is not an option.
Please note: What you’re about to read is only a list. Not all University accept E8 and D7 in Physics to study these courses. What I mean is, if 50 universities offer this course, only 5 may admit candidates who did not pass Physics subject in WAEC.
