Waiting please.
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.

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..
You got it right , after reading what people wrote I discovered that a lot of people just jump into topic with out doing a small research. I will advice nairalanders to always do research before commenting in any topic especially the one that is not related to their field of endeavors.

That's why we can never grow.
Waiting this one won use Bsc hons or no hons do? That all the Nigerian schools can offer. That's why they can't discover or invent anything good for betterment of human race. They'll creat things that causes more isolation and separation.
Poor people....


Wetin you don invent? Talking gibberish


I don't know how I found myself in this shithole settlement. Their mentality is almost the same.

A honors degree is exactly what is says. it means you passed with honours minimum 3rd class. Otherwise a regular bachelors degree (without honours) is a pass degree. i.e let my people go......it means you just managed to scrape through. Let it not be like they didnt give you something.


if your degree is below 3rd class, you sef have no business looking for work with that degree

I wasn't going to say anything, but this is the only person that truly knows the difference between Bsc(hons) and ordinary Bsc...
Most of those people that would go and spend 3 years outside Nigeria and come back, come back with no "Hons"

Late admission made me had 2 carryover in year 1, after that, no more. All went good.



For those who had no carryover from year 1 to finals would be given (hon) While those who had had one or two, won't be given (hon).

Hon or no Hon what matters is connection.

Our leaders have no hon, but they are ruling those with hon.

Neymar has no hon on his cert but he has money.

Nigeria university certificates are just like tissue paper in front of an American HR/ employers.


My brother the discrimination is real and frustration. Those guys will pick their own GED over your BSc.
They wont even consider you at all.

Its so annoying. Wish i was younger, i for vex go start their undergraduate all over and get 4.0

Last last dem go dey alright.

If you graduated before clocking 30 then you are eligible for Nysc even if you didn't serve that period. Kemi Adeosun saga should give you insight

thats not strictly correct. A pass degree basically means your degree is without honour. what this means is you didnt satisfy the minimum conditions for a 3rd class honours degree. Either you had poor grades such that you were below even a 3rd class or you didnt fulfill all the criteria like final year project etc. it's basically a worthless piece of paper

it is for all intents and purpose basically a certificate of attendance

In North America, Hons involves completing additional courses/coursework and maintaining a CGPA higher than the ordinary degree. Hons is also required for graduate school admission.

Africans love to take Oyibo scheme and bastardize it.

Why must the meaning of a degree designation be a mystery? At the end of the day, I can assure you that there are more successful people in life with a B. Sc. than those with B.Sc (Hons).

The mystery of the meaning of the said designation is a testament to the decadence of una education system. lipsrsealed
