Nigerian University can be ranked high or low using this factor. How serious is the lectures taken, how well do lecturers try to make students understand what they teach, How consistent is the university with it’s activities and in following the school calendar.

They are some Universities that excel and are very good at some course reasons being that such universities must have acquired necessary facilities for easy learning of such courses.
