Course Title: BOTANY COURSE

Course Description

BOTANY AS A COURSE.
Botany, a branch of biology, also known as plant science,can simply be defined as the scientific study of plants, their structure, growth, classification, etc.
A botanist is an expert in the field of botany or student that studies the scientific features of a plant.
Theophrastus is the father of botany who developed his own vocabulary to describe plant processes and horticultural and agricultural efforts.
Botany is originated from prehistory as herbalism in the ancient era, by man when he cultivated and planted which led to the scientific processes in our modern age.
WHY STUDY BOTANY?
Are you a plant lover and wants to do more than just imagining and hiding your thoughts? then come out of your shell and explore your passion for this field.
Below are the reasons why botany is an interesting course.

Course Cut of Point

is the minimum cut off point for BOTANY COURSE as specified by JAMB.

Also, the required cut-of-points for this course (BOTANY COURSE) depends on the school you are applying for, basically many schools have a different minimum cut of marks for accepting students in this area, which may be higher or even lower than JAMB recommend. Also, it is important to note that your O'level result (WAEC, NECO, GCE etc) is a primary criteria for screening, continue reading to know the required subjects you must have on your O'Level result
