Meanwhile, there's no clear cut deference, it's a borrowed tag that is not applicable in Nigeria universities. In most universities abroad, you can do a bachelors program without a dissetification or project. So you just do your coursework without doing a project and u are awarded a bachelor's degree.
But if you complete a project work, you are awarded a degree with Hons. But in Nigeria universities, there's no option of doing a bsc without a project work. So the hons Nigeria universities borrowed is not really applicable here so different universities give it their own meaning.
Bachelors degree and Bachelors degree (Hons) aren't much different, the former takes only 3 years to complete and writing a dissertation (project) at the end of the three years isn't mandatory but the later takes one more year to complete and requires one to write a dissertation at the end, also, in some countries, Bachelors degree (Hons) is considered more superior than Bachelors degree.
So To Elaborate More On Differences Between The Two Here Are Explanations.
1. One cannot find much difference between a Bachelors of Science degree and Bachelors of Science (Hons) degree.
2. Three years are needed to complete a Bsc degree, and four years for the completion of a Bsc (Hons) degree.
3. The Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree is considered to be superior to the Bachelor of Science degree.
4. The Bsc (Hons) is considered to be, academically, more standard than the ordinary Bsc degree.
5. A student will have to write a dissertation for the completion of a Bsc (Hons) degree. On the other hand, this is not mandatory for a Bsc degree.
6. A Bsc degree is easier to obtain than a Bsc (Hons) degree.
