but then, if you want adventure, you can try northern states like unimaid, sokoto or kasu or gsu.. It's risky though
Nooo, that's a no no for me.
Am going to stick with unizik


Thank you for your time
God bless

*LIFE IN PHARMACY SCHOOL*

I remember when I had my first carryover in the school of pharmaceutical studies, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. I actually thought I was going to die because of the pain I was feeling. I moved around like a widow. I would hide myself in deserted buildings and cry from morning till night. For two days, I refused to eat anything.
I stopped picking my parents’ calls because I couldn't even imagine telling them that I had failed at school. So I continued to cry and starve myself. I was having a new experience in my life- that of failure. I grew up being the best in everything and was always at the top of my class effortlessly. In fact, years after I left secondary school, I met one of my teachers who asked me,
“Hope you’re still carrying on your legacy of profound academic excellence?”
And the thing with pharmacy school is that our courses are linked in such a way that failing a single course (even in your first year) can give you an automatic extra year. It doesn’t even matter if your GPA is 4.89. They are called prerequisites. We even had courses that you could only pass with an A or a B. C was a fail.
And we didn't have “resits” or summer school- a chance to stay back and rewrite those courses at the end of the semester or session when your mates are at home. Nah. You just have to wait an entire year to retake the frigging course!
When I finally spoke to my dad that first time, he said,
“I know you've never failed at anything before and this must feel like your entire world just crumbled. But you’ve to get up and try again. You'll be fine.”
Damn. Pharmacy school didn't get any easier. The lectures from morning till evening all through the week except on Sundays, the millions of tests, assignments and practicals we had to run... I watched my colleagues getting withdrawn left, right and centre. People were taking drugs, caffeine to stay awake and read through the night. One of my classmates nearly lost his mind because he was smoking marijuana just so he could keep up with his study load.
At the time, if there was any attempted suicide incident in ABU, Zaria, that person was most likely a pharmacy student. There was even a case of a guy who threw himself from the third floor of Suleiman hostel upon seeing his results.
I learnt how to cram in pharmacy school. I realized that my method of studying to learn was holding me back because all some of the lecturers wanted to see was exactly what they taught you. And there were courses you had no choice but to cram- all those diagrams, chemical structures, dates and classifications. If you’re bad at cramming in pharmacy school, you’ll fail woefully.
But then at the back of your mind, you're expected to have an understanding of all you are being taught nonetheless. Because in your final year, you would be required to remember all you have been taught from your first or second year to pass most of your courses.
What am I trying to say?
I learnt how to look failure in the eye and tell it I wasn’t backing down come what may because of ABU, Zaria. Trust me, failure was and is still one of my greatest fears. In fact it is my biggest driving force. But I learnt to turn failure into a goldmine. I allowed it to remould me and refine me. I’m stronger and better today because I know what it means to fall but not to stay down.
I know that failure can do one of two things to everyone of us- turn you into an even bigger failure or become the spring board to an even more amazing success story. I had colleagues in pharmacy school, Zaria who never recovered from their first set of carryovers. They became so overwhelmed that they had to eventually leave.
That’s why I keep saying this- the power to be almost anything you want to be lies in your mind. If you can conquer your fears, you can conquer anything. But if you already feel defeated inside of you, there’s really no way you are going to succeed at any task.
So wake up every morning with a victorious attitude, tell yourself these words as often as possible,
“I’m stronger/bigger than this challenge/
phase/pain. This challenge/phase/pain will only do one thing- make me better/
stronger.”
And then go right ahead to put in the needed effort required to achieve your goals or projects.
Never forget- the power to change your story lies in your hands...

Plz btwn unizik and uniport which school is better to study pharmacy?

Which school has more quality teaching staff, standard laboratories, general academic quality
both schools meet PCN standard and it depends on the goals u aim at.

You can meet people from both schools as people said earlier to ask them question concerninng their admission criteria,learning methods and so on or you visit them.

Which school do you suggest?
Am just looking for a school where I can study pharmacy and be confident that I'm acquiring standard skills obtainable in Nigeria. I mean I just want to study in a standard school of pharmacy. I choose OAU in my jamb but with my 285 score I'm thinking of changing school. I don't want to stay extra year at home.

I've checked the Nigeria University ranking and uniport is currently in tenth position. That's why I'm considering it. Also due to the fact that unizik has a whole campus (Agulu) dedicated to it, I'm also considering it.

Do you have any other options or do I go for unizik as you have suggested?
why can't you retain OAU
You have upper hand with dat score.

Oau met all those standard but considering the distance sha

Ya I know my score is high but my waec fall hand big time (Eng-B3,Maths-C6,Chem-C5,Phy-C6, Bio-C4....). Due to the fact that post ume exam has been scrapped, I don't know if my final cutoff will be up to their departmental cutoff mark. So am thinking of changing institution. Unizik comes to mind because it has Anambra as it's primary catchment area, so I stand a bigger chance there.

Nevertheless I want to confirm that they have a standard pharmacy school.

I dnt knw if the screening method will change this year but this how it was calculated last year
Your utme score is 70% of the total aggregate while ur o-level carries 30%. And from ur o-level,your best 8 subjects will be computed(not 5) with ;
A1-8 point
B2-7 point
B3 = 6,
C4 = 5,
C5 = 4,
C6 = 3, and so on.
The maximum points will be 64 (i.e A1 = 8 X 8 subjects).
You then convert to 30% (Assuming you have A1 in all 8 subjects,then 64/64 * 30%
Ur utme score/400 * 70
Then addition of the utme point(over 70) and o-level point(over 30) is ur aggregate.


You shd have known ur aggregate by now. Since u said u are from Anambra which is not among ELDS,u have to meet the merit cut-off...best of luck bro.

500L Unilag student. Pharmacy has been interesting, stressful but in all it has been God so far. Memorable day was sometime last year we told our lecturers that we were not prepared for the exam. We acted our nollywood movie and at last the exam was postponed and we even chose the date we wanted.
gud p.m please can i cross from pharmacology in 200level to pharmacy in unilag, or which other course can allow that? Would Biochemisty allow that?

Welcome to the club! Your first year should come easy... the real deal comes from 200-500L. it'll be well anyways.




...and to the whole house, I hope you've all been good. OAU just released our results and statistics were well...
