NO PUME!!!. ; OFFİCİAL JAMB GRADING SYSTEM FOR 2016/2017 ADMISSION.

Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME), will no longer be required as a pre-condition to gaining admission into Nigerian universities. This was the decision of the Federal Government and stakeholders in education sector, Thursday.

Also, cut off marks for the 2016 admission into universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, was pegged at 180.

The Minister of Education , Malam Adamu Adamu, while declaring open ‎the meeting, argued that if there was absolute confidence in the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, there should be no need for universities to conduct internal examinations to determine the fate of candidates seeking admission.

He said “As far as I am concerned, the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing, the universities should not be holding another examinations and if the universities have any complain against JAMB, let them bring it and then we address it…

“… But if JAMB is qualified enough to conduct tests and they have conducted test, then there will be no need to conduct another test for students to gain admission…” 

Adamu also ordered JAMB to stop extra charges for change of course, change of school, among others.

Also, According to JAMB, “the new method uses a point system to offer provisional admission to candidates.”

JAMB’s provisional admission no longer makes much sense this year, your points tally will decide your faith. The points are evenly spread out between your O’ Level and JAMB results to provide a level-playing field for all.

UNILAG?… No words

University of Lagos,
University of ‘first choice’    
Students left with no choice.

Letters are the bricks          
A prison is the outcome.        
Exams in less than a week
Gp’s dancing konkon below  might be the outcome. 
                                        
JAMB was the first prison cell,
MAULAG was the next,
Now we are being fenced IN.
The Israelites didn’t sign any
form to the ‘Egyptians’,
Now we are asked to.. 

ULSU has been shut down
HUSTLE is our back up.   
Do we sign, do we not sign    
We are at a cross road.         

Sadly the world is watching:
“UNILAG and it’s endless protests( The new seasonals)”.

Something better will come your way, if you’re open to it.

I found a lovely quote through twitter, “To see a rainbow, one has to pass a storm.”

When something bad happens, we tend to concentrate on the negatives, forgetting that there must be something positive hidden somewhere in the havoc.

You will know happiness
in the future—and in the present, if you’re open to it.

“… Just saying what’s on my mind”

Life has taught me something “Just because someone doesn’t like you, or someone thinks you’re wrong, doesn’t mean that you have done anything wrong.  People’s opinions are based on their own experiences in the world.”

Just the other day, i was told i was Proud and other things (that i can not disclose) and honestly, it kept me thinking.

I like to say I am a reformed people pleaser.  One of my goals in life used to be making sure everyone liked me.  I worked hard at it and I was good at it.  The problem was no matter how hard I worked or what I did, there was always someone who wasn’t happy with something I had or had not done.  I finally realized that my job as a people pleaser was not generating the result I wanted.  I was miserable!  I was spending a lot of time doing things I didn’t want to do.  I had little time to dedicate to things that were important to me because I was dedicating all my time to pleasing others.  I started to feel like I was losing any sense of who I really was.  It was then that I said to myself “something has to change”.  It was time to find my voice, to create a life that actually felt good to me. 

Fast forward a few years and I haved settled into a good life.  But suddenly I find myself once again too concerned with what other people think about me.  İ told my friend, Paschal and he said “When someone says something about you, put it through your filter and see if there is any value to it. And no matter what the answer is, you should not let it threaten your self-worth.

I never want to go back to the days where I so desperately wanted and needed validation from others.  I also don’t want to negate all the feedback(ie. What people say about me) as irrelevant.  I get to look at it and determine if it is helpful. I pause and remind myself that other people’s opinions are just that, their opinion.  And they are entitled to their opinion; it isn’t my job to change it. 

İ am entitled to my own opinion.
