Course Title: EDUCATION AND PHYSICS
Physics is a vital part of science which deals solely with the study of matter, its constituents, and how the whole universe interact with each other. It studies the constituents of substances, beginning right from minute materials to the entire universe at large.
Education and Physics is an interesting course which is aimed at producing teachers in the field of Physics to aid imbibe the knowledge gained into the minds of younger students of the Secondary School level. The course is under the faculty of Education, signifying that a qualified Physics teacher is aimed to be produced at the end of its study. Only those whose passion is teaching are advised to pick up the course for study. If not, try looking out for other courses.
Amongst the vast job opportunities for an Education and Physics graduate, these are the few ones we picked out for you:
- Physics Teacher: You'll be opportune to imbibe knowledge of physics into younger ones, with a mouth-watering pay at the end of the month (depending on the educational firm you'll be working in though).
- Lab. Technician: As a laboratory technician, you'll work in the laboratory by assisting lead scientists, maintaining equipment, and even performing procedures/scientific tasks.
- Data Analyst: As a data analyst, you'll manage data of companies, schools, healthcare facilities etc. and present the data in an easily understandable form.
- Research Associate: A research associate (as the name imply) work together with another researcher to gather information and carryout research in different fields.
- IT Analyst: As an IT Analyst, you can also be referred to as Systems Analyst, and the job to be carried out is to design and implement information systems which'll promote organizational efficiency.
Subject Combination for JAMB
Here are the courses to combine when filling this course for JAMB UTME
Course Cut of Point
170 is the minimum cut off point for EDUCATION AND PHYSICS as specified by JAMB.
Also, the required cut-of-points for this course (EDUCATION AND PHYSICS) 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
