  52. I think I have just made a very terrible mistake i chose mathematics, physics and geography with English language too… and it’s either chemistry or biology … will it have any effect on my admission

    • @Ikaw, sorry about the mistake, normally you were to have checked the brochure for the information before applying. However you have to read hard and pass those subjects first. You may have a choice of changing your course to suit the subject combination already chosen or allowing your school change the department for you after post UTME.

  53. Why include chemistry in Computer Science? As a computer scientist, of what use is chemistry knowledge?

    • @Agba Emmanuel,
      Thanks for your question. First of all, we have included the subject because JAMB approved of it as one of the subject combinations to study Computer Science. We understand that your worry is “of what use is Chemistry to the computing industry?” But then Semiconductors are the core of today’s computers (microprocessors, memory, graphics, power management, etc) and the processes to manufacture these devices are very chemistry intensive. Same story for the fabrication of LCD monitors, magnetic drives, even the plastic housings. etc. Research more on the topic to know better.

      • pls i have credit in al d subjects and hav d7 in chemistry and biology. Can i study computer science with it in unilag?
