You might ask?
WHY DO PEOPLE PLAN TO CHANGE COURSE WHILE IN The University/Polytechnic?
You know each university in nigeria have his or her own admission quota.
The quota is the maximum number of candidate that can be admitted for a particular course and school.
The quota is different for different school and different course.
The quota is given to these universities by NUC, depending on the capacity of the school to accommodate this student and impact knowledge comfortably to them.
Let’s use UNIBEN and medicine for example.
Let us say the admission quota for getting admission in uniben to study medicine is 1000 and we have 3000 applicants who want to study medicine in uniben for that particular year.
After admitting about 1000 applicants the school can’t send the remaining 2000 back home most especially if they merit or did well in their post utme.
The school will ask for more quota from NUC and admit maximum 1500 aspirant into the medicine department and the rest are sent to various department like physiology, physiotherapy etc.
Now those who where sent to various department, would have the mind that while in school they will switch back to medicine.
But they end up studying the actual course given to them by the school, because of the requirement involve.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENT TO CHANGE COURSE WHILE I SCHOOL AFTER ADMISSION?
1.HIGH GP : This is the most important and paramount factor before you can think of changing course in school.
if you don’t have a 1st class GP of 4.5 (depending on the school), then your dreams of changing course might just be crushing.
Let us go back to our example up there.
Before anybody can be admitted to study medicine or any professional course in Nigeria, he or she must have being a guru (very brilliant and intelligent).
The school cannot accept people from another department into the department of medicine except, a student in medicine department is not doing well.
Immediately the school notices that a student is not doing well in his or her first year in school that student will be relocated.
That creates vacancy or opportunity for those who plan to change to medicine or any professional course while in school.
Can you now see that its very tough to change course in school ?.
Because if all the admitted student are doing very well (which is likely not possible) you may likely not be able to change and even if you try to change your G.P must be higher than the person with the lowest G.P in that department.
2. TALK TO YOUR TUTOR AND THE TUTOR IN THE DEPARTMENT YOU WANT TO SWITCH TO :
You are not the only candidate battling to change to a professional course,with limited space.
You have be very close to your tutor for him to guide you and help you have good GP.
Also talk to the tutor in the department you want to switch to, for him to make you know about any vacancy in his department .
3.MONEY: You have to pay your way through the change,and also know that it involves lots of money.
For example to change course while in uniben is about 100,000 and those lecturers will still likely collect some more.
Can you now see how tough it is to do change of course after admission while in school.
Don”t let any school change your dream for you.
Make the right decisions now.
