  1. Please sir
    Can i be admited direct entry in to federal university bauchi state with MLT certificate or i have to write jamb exam

    • Damilola,

      Immunology is a branch of medicine and biology that covers the medical study of immune systems in humans, animals, plants and sapient species.

      In such we can see there is a difference of human immunology and comparative immunology in veterinary medicine and animal biosciences.

      Microbiology is the scientific study of microorganisms, those being unicellular, multicellular, or acellular. Microbiology encompasses numerous sub-disciplines including virology, bacteriology, protistology, mycology, immunology, and parasitology.

    • Medical laboratory science is the use of clinical laboratory tests to detect, diagnose, monitor and treat disease. Blood, tissue and body fluids can be chemically analyzed and examined for foreign organisms and abnormalities.

  2. I have not commented on posts like this before, but this information deserves it.
    pls as a OND HOLDER in SCIENCE LAB TECH, I wil love to study MLS. Should i rewrite jamb or should i do direct entry? I need ur advice

    • Hello Gracious

      I am glad you find this post helpful.

      Yes, you can apply to study Medical Laboratory Science as an OND holder in Science Laboratory Science via Direct Entry.

      Sitting for the JAMB exam will be a plan B for you to increase your chances of admission.

  3. Bro, this is so very helpful thank you for this.

    I never leave comments on websites but this is so worth it and deserves appreciation.

    One can even self study with course outline you just listed.

    Thanks again brother.

    • You must choose Medical Laboratory as your first choice during your JAMB registration.

      But, you can study Medical Laboratory Technology at your State College of Health Technology without JAMB.
