    I overheard one Ghanian whose daughter was sitting for her waec here in Nigeria saying that in all other countries, their equivalent of our O’level result is all candidates need to apply for admission in higher institute and almost immediately another man (a Nigerian) attested the fact.

    I just have to take that generalization as a minor exaggeration because on a deeper thought, Nigeria might not be the only country that organises entry examination to tertiaries but she is definitely the only country that organises, aside the O’level TWO (2) entry examinations to tertiaries.

    The question is Why?

    Are these entry examinations really necessary or just an avenue for extortion?

    <b>Jamb/post Jamb are necessary but to me the Government are only using it to extort money ,if it is not extortion how would an individual pass Jamb and gets the cut off mark of the post Jamb and another individual whose marks is not up to yours would be granted admission,partiality. Admission of this modern world is based on favouritism and who knows who.</b>

    Post jamb it’s just a typical way of us Nigerians with trust issues and extortion,  jamb and o level is d only criteria needed for admission into the university but post jamb is just a hoax to cover up trust issues that our institutions doubt the credibility of Jamb,  institutions just uses it as a way to extort money that’s all but not to further test the credibility of the students

    Formerly it was O level and Jamb one needed to enter into Nigeria tertiary institutions
    Now Post Jamb examinations are taken in individual tertiary institutions
    This to me holds no water but just a medium to raise funds for the various tertiary institutions while extorting monies from the students.

    Does it mean that the government have no jurisdiction over these Universities to stop the Post UTME or she (the government) just doesn’t want to,…which will make me ask why wouldn’t she want to?

    I mean, I have seen numerous candidates miss potential admissions countlessly till they got tired and quit trying all because the journey was just too long.
    From waec to jamb then post jamb with a very low tendency of surviving all.
    So, why the much hurdle?

    @samson I do not think either that one should be be put into so much rigorous suffering/agony just to acquire education/knowledge
    Even though it is what is used as a yardstick for acquiring a ‘qualification’ that can be used to get employment, it shouldn’t be acquired crying
    Knowledge is important,knowledge is power so people should not be blocked from getting it with so much requirements
    It’s not everyone that is looking for knowledge that wants to acquire it for the sake of employment.
