This study examined the relevance of the quality and quantity of courses offered in colleges of education to account for differences among students. Two research questions and hypotheses were each answered and tested respectively. The study adopted a survey design with a population target that comprised students from colleges of education in the North Central zone of Nigeria. 510 respondents were randomly selected from both federal and state colleges of education proportionately. A “Course Contents Requisite Questionnaire (CCRQ)” was drafted and validated of which its reliability tested with a Cronbach’s coefficient alpha gave .714. The data generated were analysed through descriptive and inferential statistics. Results showed that students found it difficult to properly grasp in-depth knowledge due to too many courses offered; GSE courses offered by students should be reduced and not beyond 200 level; no add and drop options and less than 40% of enrolled candidates complete within three years. It was recommended that a 3-term GSE courses be reduced and terminate at 200 level; NCCE to legitimately organize a workshop to address the inadequacies discovered in structural organization of the current contents; add and drop of course option be available in colleges among others
