Every faculty in the University of Ilorin can be assumed to have brilliant students , but definitely not all of them are super intelligent or bright. What people do not understand is ” there is a huge difference between someone who is brilliant and someone who is intelligent.
Let me do you the honour of explaining the difference, a bright student doesn’t have to be taught something before they find their way around it, before they find solutions to it or understand it, while on the other hand, a brilliant student is the one who is being taught before he can understand, though the both have one similar attributes, a brilliant student can take a long period of time to understand something depending on how complex it is, also an intelligent student can take a shorter or longer period of time to teach himself something depending on how simple or complex it is. The good thing is a brilliant student learn fast.
This article will be based on faculties in the University of Ilorin, where you are most likely to found highly intelligent student, you can find brilliant students in ninety percent of the faculties in the University of Ilorin but some faculties have a higher percentage of intelligent students compare to the others in the University of Ilorin.
1. Faculty of Medical sciences.
To be a medical student in the University of Ilorin doesn’t just demand you to be able to learn fast, you need to be able to conceive ideas that generates solutions to your puzzle fast.
Being a medical student in the University of Ilorin means you must be able to put things together, get fixed up by yourself daily and only bright students can do these, have you wondered why some kids with good grades often get withdraw from the University of Ilorin with time? They are brilliant, they are not intelligent and they can’t survive for long. The higher you get, the tougher it becomes, brilliant people most times do not conceive ideas themselves, they wait on others. So I can say thirty percent of students in medical science are intelligent student, so that makes medical science the first on my list.
2. Faculty of agriculture.
Well I know someone out there is like how can agriculture be the next faculty, but let me break it down to you.
Thirty percent of student studying agriculture in the University of Ilorin applied for medical courses, they were given agriculture. Twenty percent were dropped to agriculture because they were not intelligent enough to continue with medica courses, so that means fifty percent actually picked agriculture themselves right?
To study agriculture in the University of Ilorin is not a joke. You have got to do courses that is never part of your business. And this is one of the reason why most students do not cross in Agriculture, You have got to be intelligent, I have heard people argue if agriculture student are better than engineering students, well I have no answers to this, but food science and technology is under agriculture, if a student can pass successfully under food science which is a sub category course under agriculture, then engineering should not be compared with agriculture.
So I will say twenty five percent of intelligent student are in agriculture.
3. Faculty of Engineering.
The thing about engineering is any serious science student should be able to study and come out in flying colors, most courses in engineering has to do with calculations, that is the major work of science and even commercial students, you are provided with the formulas, physics will always give you the law and chemistry will always give you the idea… So to me engineering in university of Ilorin might not really be a big deal as people rates it. When they starts doing real practicals,
they might be above agriculture, but for now, they are below agriculture, which means about fifteen percent of intelligent student in the University of Ilorin are studying engineering.
4. Faculty of Arts.
When I say faculty of arts I literally mean ” Law, linguistics, history and international studies”if these three courses were to be removed from faculty of arts, then I might have the option that to say the number of highly bright student in the faculty of arts is infinitesimally small.
These three courses which I mentioned above is what holds the pillars of arts, other courses under the faculty of arts is a course anyone can study.
So I can say about ten percent of students in sociology are highly brilliant.
5. Faculty of social sciences.
This is the faculty every one thinks has the highest number of unintelligent students, but a certain department is under them which I can boastfully say do have a huge number of bright students, “The department of Sociology”
They are the real social scientists, they study every reactions of man, life and his immediate environments, the changes he undergoes, the pains he ignores etc.
Sociology is a huge science course to study, I do believe it involves people with high level of intelligence studying them, so I can say about eight percent bright student in the University of Ilorin are this this department.
So the other faculties cab find themselves in the percentage which remains out of hundred.
