**COURSES FOR SCIENCE STUDENTS THAT DOES REQUIRES MATHEMATICS**

Welcome on board as we embark on another interesting topic which is one of the topics most readers are searching for on the world wide web. Today we will be taking a very detailed tour of the topic, courses for science students without mathematics.

Generally, this is prevalent in Nigeria secondary school students writing their final examination which are usually an external examination. The most university has a structure and courses you as an aspirant of the university or the institution must fulfill before standing a chance in the institution to be admitted.

It is not gainsaying that if you refused to study the requirements, of course, you wish to study as a science students what is constant is the necessity to pass mathematics as a rudiment to stand you a chance of getting into that department, so we will be explicitly writing on mathematics and courses you as a science students you can register if you did not have mathematics in your WAEC and JAMB, sometimes wrong subject combination land some students to forfeit their admission even not getting admission at all, so the focus of this write up will be on these issues.

## COURSES FOR SCIENCE STUDENTS WITHOUT MATHS {MATHEMATICS} IN JAMB

**INSTITUTION AND MATHEMATICS IN WAEC**

Just like we have course combination or course being offered in secondary schools to make a particular student a science student, art’s student, commercial and so on and so forth. For a prospective student, there is always a set benchmark for any courses in the institution and the subjects a student must have in his or her credentials to make her stand an admission. For every course in an institution, as a prospective student, it is advisable you go through the school requirements before proceeding to fill a form in regards to admission in such university.

**INSTITUTION AND MATHEMATICS IN JAMB**

Just like some courses demand mathematics in WAEC result, some of these courses do not require mathematics in jamb why some courses do not demand mathematics in both credentials.

**PROBLEM WITH MATHEMATICS**

Most students today consistently and woefully failed both mathematics in jamb and WAEC. In Nigeria, you found out average youth sat for WAEC over five times in bid of searching for mathematics. Some even go as far as going to a Centre where they are helped to pass this subject. Some even opt-in to write a non-appearance examination. Non-appearance is when a candidate fails to show up in an examination, but someone comes in place of such candidate which Is usually an expert in that area to write for the candidate. It also goes for the same candidate who has sat for jamb over 6 consecutive times in bid of searching for mathematics.

This lead to frustration among some students that they decide not to write any examination any longer to saver them the stress of looking for a particular subject. Some are still writing or sitting for the exam on yearly basis on basis that they are not exposed to the fact they can actually be admitted to an institution of learning with a pass in mathematics. Some even spent huge amount of money in seeking for admission to bribe or find their way to the university in order to study the course of their choice yet after all these they are expelled out of the university all because of the wrong subject combination.

do you know that there are some countries in Africa whom almost all candidates who sat for external examination passed their mathematics subject? Do you know nearly halves of those that sat for WAEC in Nigeria always fail mathematics? All these are caused by some underlying factors, and the factors that affect a number of candidates passing their WAEC will be discussed in the next paragraph.

**STUDENT’S LAZINESS:**

Do you know average failure or massive failure we see today in mathematics is not a purported plan by the examination body? Most of the failure is as a result of student’s laziness. Most students don’t prepare enough before and some days to exanimation. Some start reading only the second day to examination. While some don’t even prepare at all, some belief in their brilliant friends to get help from him, all this has to be the major factors contributing to student failure in mathematics.

**LACK OF TEXTBOOKS:**

You will not imagine most students don’t see value or reasons having textbooks for the subjects they are being taught. You can’t expect a student who doesn’t have a textbook to prepare ahead of his teacher or read on his or her leisure time because there is not material to use for that.

**STUDENTS’ MENTALITY TO MATHEMATICS.**

Average students in today has a very negative perception of mathematics. Some students see this subject as night terrifying element that you don’t go or battle with a normal state of mind. Some students even though mathematics is a gift that is meant for some certain set if students only.

**TEACHERS’ PEDAGOGY:**

Some teachers are so arcade that they use the same method that was used on students to fail massively the last examination again for a new set of students. Approaches and level of confidence a teacher give a student’s matter a lot and has a very long way to plays in students lives.

Even though where you find much courses that don’t require mathematics is the art field of study. And where all this attitude that is not geared towards understanding this subject is art. All these are because of art’s students hardly in need of anything related to calculation in their higher field of study.

**THE NEED FOR MATHEMATICS IN INSTITUTION AND RELATED SCIENCE COURSES:**

That mathematics is required for some courses in Nigeria doesn’t mean it is a witch hunt or effort to reduce off some student of the list of aspiring students of a particular institution. But it is paramount such courses enlist mathematics in their requirements because of the following reasons.

**SCIENCE COURSES ARE MOSTLY ABSTRACT OF REALITIES:**

Just as science is the study of living and non-living thing, yet it requires some attribute to be successful in any field of science you choose. Ability to think of something that does not exist and relate it to factors that affect living things is one quality of science students, so mathematics helps to sharpen and develop the aspect of their brain in this regard.

**ACCURATE ACCOUNT FOR LABORATORY PROCEDURE:**

For successful research in the laboratory, it requires fast thinking, well develop brain which is vast in calculations. It is a general fact that hardly will you see science courses without having to do with calculation especially engineering course that deal with measurement and purely calculations. So, with the help of a rooted mathematical knowledge, it helps to reduce the stress placed on the lecturers while doing his work.

**DEVELOP FAST THINKING ABILITY:**

For most science students who are going to some critical aspect of science, like neurosurgeon, chemist, etc., they need a critical thinking ability to think fast, act in proportion to demand of a particular course. So mathematics helps such students to deepen their thinking sense because for you to be successful in mathematics you must be successful in learning formula of hands, applying it step by step, thinking outside the box to solve some calculation.

**Conclusion On Courses For Science Students Without Maths**

Set to go, let us quickly do some quick review. Don’t be carried away by some popular saying by graduates in your society or some so-called street professors that they will tell you all that is happening in the four corners of the university yet they have no access to the system or know how the most university operates. Some of them are fond of saying, if you did not have a minimum of credit in your mathematics you cannot secure admission, we are saying it here bluntly it is nothing but a pure lie. We have listed some courses above that you need mathematics to work with and some that don’t require mathematics at all, all you need is another subject combination.

And for as many as possible who which to get it information across to friends and relations that needs this, you can do well by sharing it with them.
