BSc Hons stand for Bachelor of Science Honours. A Bachelor's degree BSc is generally considered an ordinary pass degree and BSc Hons is looked upon as an extraordinary degree. BSc Hons is supposed to have a heavier syllabus than BSc. Some countries offer the title Hons for a general BSc that lasts for only three years.

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”


Right on point, meanwhile

Perfect response. At least, I know this is the case in the University of Lagos. Anyone who finishes with a pass, has no honur added to his or her BSc title.



rid4stat:
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.

This is the correct one so far.
I had an extra semester due to a spill over course , had like 2 carryovers during my study and still graduated with second class honours. I don't really think carryovers affect the honours.

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.

God bless you.

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.

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.

But with same Nigerian certificate we Nigerians at U.S and Canada postgraduate schools still do better than American and Canadian counterparts. Still with our so called WEAC , our students still go there and be the best shocked shocked shocked cool shocked shocked shocked shocked shocked shocked shocked

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
correct explanation ,in Nigeria having minimum of third class will add hons to your B.sc. whether you spilled or not.
