Available UNIZIK Pre Science Subjects
There are just six available subjects in UNIZIK Pre Science Programme. They are: Mathematics, Geography, English Language, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology.
Each of these six (6) subjects will be taught by four lecturers. So in total, there will be 24 lecturers in the pre science programme.
Students of UNIZIK Pre-science Programme are permitted to choose five or four subjects to take the the pre science programme examination. Your scores in four out of these five subjects will be calculated over 400. In other words, your best four subjects will be taken.
UNIZIK Pre Science Cut off Mark
Officially speaking, the minimum score that is considered a pass or credit in the UNIZIK Pre-science Program is 200. This means that if at the end of the program, you score 200 or above, you are considered to have passed. However, that does not guarantee admission.
Qualification for admission is actually determined by both pre-science program score and JAMB score. The current JAMB cut off mark for admission into UNIZIK via the pre degree program is 180.
I will explain how JAMB score and UNIZIK Pre science score, by their interplay, determine your admission chances.
Case Number 1:
Case number one is that of a candidate who scores 179 or below in JAMB and then scores 200 or above in UNIZIK Pre science programme. This means that the candidate did not reach the JAMB cut off mark (180) for admission into UNIZIK through the pre degree program. Therefore, the candidate will not be admitted.
Case Number 2:
Case number two is that of a candidate who scores 180 or above in JAMB but scores 199 or below in UNIZIK Pre science programme. This means that the candidate did not reach the UNIZIK Pre science cut off mark (200) even though they met the JAMB required score. So the candidate did not qualify for admission into UNIZIK through the pre degree program and will, therefore, not be admitted.
Case Number 3:
Case number three is that of a candidate who scores 180 or above in JAMB and also 200 or above in UNIZIK Pre science programme. If you fall into this category, you may be admitted into the university but you may be offered another course different from your preferred course.
The truth is that the higher your UNIZIK Pre-science programme examination score, the greater your chance of getting admitted into your preferred course. This is true as long as your JAMB score is above the cut off mark.
If you applied for very competitive courses like Medicine and surgery and scored 180 in JAMB, all it would take for you to get admitted is to score 300 or above in your UNIZIK Pre science programme examination.
Do UNIZIK Pre Science Students Write Post UTME Screening Exam?

UNIZIK Pre Science Fees

The UNIZIK Pre-science program school fees is N45,000 for candidates with one result and N46, 500 for those with combined results.
Tips to Help you Succeed in your UNIZIK Pre Science Programme
When the lecturers advise students, they always say that UNIZIK pre degree programme is survival of the fittest. But can I shock you? In this programme, even the fittest lose sometimes.
Listen my friend, UNIZIK Pre-science Programme is actually tougher than what most people are made to believe. I’m not trying to scare or discourage you. Rather, I’m preparing your mind ahead of time.
Read the following tips. They will help you to go through UNIZIK Pre-science Programme and come out successful.
UNIZIK Pre Science Programme Success Tips
1. Don’t listen or act on what everybody is saying. There are three people you must listen to for the sake of your safety and sanity — the lectures, your class reps and yourself.
2. You will see many pre science students carrying large textbooks. You will hear others always answering questions in class. Don’t ever feel intimidated. No, don’t. Many of those folks are just trying to impress. Some don’t get to read those large textbooks throughout the 6 months duration of the program. The best attitude you can have towards such people is to let them motivate you to become more studious and wise in your dealings.
3. Try to balance your religious, social and academic life. Too much emphasis on any one of them is bad. Don’t miss lectures to attend fellowships, prayer vigils or parties. Do your best to give God his place and time in your life as a young person. Don’t neglect your social life, but always remember that there will be an examination soon.
4. Anybody who has gone through the UNIZIK pre science programme will tell you that the very things the lecturers say during lectures are the questions you will see on the examination day. So wisdom is to try not to miss any lecture.
5. Although I strongly advise you to buy textbooks and past questions, don’t put your entire faith in them.
6. Finally, stay focused. It’s just a six months programme and not the time to fall in and out of love or f*ck around.
UNIZIK Pre Science Hostel
