Can we pray our way to security as a nation or we need serous overhaul of our security architecture?

In some countries like UK, if you completed your course work without writing a project you can be awarded BSc, but with a project completed and defended successfully you will be awarded a BSc hons

Differs for each country.

Seems like in Nigeria, BSc (hons) is awarded when the graduate finished the course of study at the specified time, 4years or 5years, based on the duration of course.
But ordinary BSc awarded, if the duration is exceeded ie for students with “extra year”
I had extra year but still have hons on mime. Though what you said is what I know but after my case I don't know again o

B.Sc. (or B.Sc General) Bachelor’s degree and B.Sc. Bachelor’s degree (Hons), are both academic degrees given to undergraduate students. Here we're looking at the difference between the two academic degrees.B.Sc (Hons)is much more specialized as compared to theB.Sc (General)degree, and academically,B.Sc (Hons)is a more standard degree as compared to B.Sc (general).If you want to study any one of the main sciences (eg. chemistry, physics, mathematics etc.) in detail, it is advisable to go for a B.Sc (Hons) course. But if you want a more balanced and multi-disciplinary approach, it is better to pursue a B.Sc (General) course for under-graduate studies.

It's because in sciences n art,,, d duration is between 4 to 6yrs ,once u exceed 6yrs ,,with or without spill over,,, no honour for u, cos honour means dey r honouring u for completing d course within d stipulated time n also enlightening employers of labour abt d nature of ur result. If u were to b an employer, will u employ b.sc hons or without hons?,,, now dat u no d difference

I don't agree with you on this. There are people that do not graduate at the speculated time but honours is still written on their certs. This is not the right answer at all.

Hons for those who didn't carry a course...
Ordinary Bsc for those who had carryovers.

That's not true. All Engineering degrees carry honours being first class, second class or third class. Thus, your answer is far from it.

Waiting please.
Over here, you need 120 credits to pass the year, so a normal 3 year honour degree would give you 360 credits. Now, let's say you messed up in year 1 or 2, you failed a 20 credit module AND its resit, you have the option to downgrade to an ordinary degree, which means you'll now be doing 100 credits per year instead.
Re: What's The Difference Between Bsc (Hons) And Ordinary Bsc? by flokii: 9:29pm On Jun 19
B.Sc (Hons.) is awarded if you've completed your 4yrs course in 4yrs while ordinary B.Sc is awarded if you have spill over or extra year (be it one or lengthy).

I will illustrate with engineering,, engineering in Nigeria universities is normally 5yrs,bt it's shouldn't exceed 7yr,,,if u can graduate within dis period, whatever d result, it goes with honour,,, but if u exceed d 7yrs ,,den no honour,, Dats y our HOD will advice us to get second class lower division or third class with honour,, rather malpractice n b given 3yrs suspension den graduate without honour....

Honour shows dat u completed d course within d stipulated yrs or period,,, it helps employers to no if u r dull or maybe dey may ask Wat happened dat made u graduate late..
This is the only factual explanation I've seen here, others are mere conjectures and it shows the real quality of (hons) people have. A Pass Certificate acquired with knowledge and honestly is far better than 2:1 with (hons) we're talking about here. You find people gathering and finding solutions to past questions without any quality studies hence without true knowledge of the courses they earn high grades. To me, this is a fraud in itself! That's the main reason graduates have failed the nation even the face of bad leadership. With the right mindset to education, we would have been much better than we're now.

Its a UK education system. Hons means you completed a project work while graduating without a project work gets you only a B.Sc without Hons. So here in Nigeria we can conveniently say we all graduate with Hons since a project work isn't an option to the best of my knowledge in our universities.

This is the right answer.

B.Sc.(hons) are for those that graduated with 1st class, 2nd upper division, 2nd class lower division and third class while ordinary B.Sc. are for those that graduated with pass. Reason is there is no honour in pass as you only attended the institution with no grade.
