2016 Npower to Continue Earning Stipends in the Enhanced Stage to be Announced

October 31, 2018
The next big PLAN for 2016 Npower beneficiaries
Npower support team has been promising “good news” for sometimes. The good news is now thrown to the public and the reaction to this should be overwhelming among the out-going 2016 Npower beneficiaries.

See: New Npower Registration Opens: Latest Applications for N-Build

This update is contained in the release on the official Twitter handle of the body.
To our 2016 Beneficiaries who have been anxious, we are excited to share some news with you. We won't put you out in the cold. We have got you now and always. Stay tuned to our channels.
Npower called this “next BIG PLAN”. This means it’s still a secret to a certain extent.

The update added that, the 2016 Beneficiaries will proceed into an enhancement programme as they continue to give of their services and earn monthly stipends.

Money continues coming in? Yes, you read right!

The support team added some messages with confidence.
The details of N-Power ENHANCE will gladden your hearts as it indeed gladdens ours. A multi-sector, multi-layered and multi-pronged plan will indeed answer all the questions that you have had over the past few months about what the future holds. Indeed, the future is bright. The future in ENHANCED!  WATCH THIS SPACE! N-POWER ENHANCED
All things being equal, all 2016 beneficiaries should be rest assured that they only rounding off the first stage of their Npower by November/December this year. The next BIG thing is fast approaching. Be on the lookout.

This is equally good news for the new 2017 beneficiaries and those coming, that, after their 24-month stipends, the Federal Government still gets them covered. Work hard - it pays back.

NPOWER Redeployment of Beneficiaries: What You Must Know

October 31, 2018
It is no more a joke that Npower has come to this country to help millions of youth find something contributing doing. The scheme has equally trained lots of engaged youth under the category of N-Build, Tech and Creative.

See: New Npower Registration Opens: Latest Applications for N-Build

In the past, most beneficiaries can redeploy from one organization to the other or from one state to the other. This may not be possible henceforth as the support team recently affirmed on their Twitter handle.


 

Dear 2017 Beneficiaries, There is no redeployment in N-Power. You selected YOUR place of residence and that formed one of the criteria for your selection. No one can authorize redeployment.

It was twitted that, there would be no redeployment in N-Power again.

It added that, individual beneficiaries selected their places of residence and that formed one of the criteria for the selection the first place.

See: To NPOWER Nigeria Beneficiaries: What Happens If You Are Working Elsewhere

With this statement, the inter-state re-deployment may not be possible in case you wish to know.

For example, if you’re a beneficiary in Oyo State and wants to be re-deployed to Lagos State.

However, this may not stop the intra-state or local government switching.

For example, someone in Ife-north local government may want to consider another local government area. A beneficiary teaching in a school very far from his residential address may apply for relocation within the same local government or state.

How to Re-Deploy Within the Same State

From experience, those who are interested in changing their places of work can adopt two methods.

Colleague Switching

Switch school with a colleague who also prefers where you are working and you also prefer where he is working.

For instance, Mr. A is working at XYZ School and that is so close to your residence. But you’re working at ABC School which is closer to Mr. A’s residence too.

If two of you can meet (and get the permission of your schools), you can switch schools without any official concern.

See: NPower Nigeria: New Application, Shortlisting, Payment and Other Updates (OFFICIAL)

Apply through Focal Person

If you prefer relocating to another local government within your state, you will have to apply through the state’s focal person. Each focal person is in the state's headquarter.

Such office will need genuine, medical or legal reason for such relocation before granting approval.

No one else can authorize redeployment.

  1. You can make payment immediately after creating your NYSC profile during mobilization registration. In other words, immediately your profile is created (before fingerprints are captured), you will be taken to the page that asks you to make payment first before full registration or continue without payment. There, you can choose to make payment before continue.
  2. These payments affect call-up letters, exemption and exclusion letters.
  3. You can also complete your registration before making payment.
  4. For relocation letters, you’ll need to log in to your profile and scroll to “Relocation” and follow the prompts.

Whichever, you need this post.

  9. Provide card details, pin and whatever other information required
  10. On successful transaction, the redirect URL is loaded with the status of the transaction
  11. This completes the Remita Cards/Wallet payment process

If you’re finding this method difficult, kindly use bank option.

Is Re-uploading of O’level Results to JAMB Portal for Everyone?

October 24, 2018

SHOULD ALL ADMISSION SEEKERS GO BACK TO CBT CENTRES TO RE-UPLOAD THEIR SSCE RESULTS?

I’ve earlier covered some posts to answer a series of questions admission seekers were asking me. These questions surrounded the uploading of WAEC, NECO, NABTEB and NBAIS result to JAMB portal.

I might have covered some of your concerns in one or two of the recent posts below.
  1. How to Upload WAEC, NECO, NABTEB or NBAIS results to JAMB portal
  2. 3 Quick Ways to Retrieve/Recover Your JAMB Profile Code
  3. How to check if Your SSCE Result Has Been Truly Uploaded to JAMB Website/Portal
  4. AWAITING RESULTS: Answers to Students' Questions on Admission
But if your own question is specific to whether you have to re-upload your result after already done that during UTME registration or you’d once gone back to CBT centre to upload and you want to know whether you still need to do that again – then you must read this piece and pass it across to help someone.
See, I’ve equally read bunch of misleading information bloggers out there are sharing. Some blogs affirmed that you had to go for re-uploading of your results even if you have done that before. In other words, they were asking all admission seekers (whether you used awaiting result during UTME registration or not) to return to CBT centre and re-upload.

Well, we’re in free world and words are free. But you don’t have to believe everything you read or hear. Or you have to usually get information from trusted sources or better - hear from the horse’s mouth.

Here is real deal.

All Candidates Who Used Awaiting Result Must Re-upload

The very warning by JAMB and schools that their applicants should quickly go and upload their O’level results to the body’s portal is meant for only applicants who used awaiting results.

Unfortunately, most schools sending such email and SMS warnings are not being specific. But if you take note, the messages are perfect.

For example, a school sent this,
Make sure you upload your O’level result to JAMB portal before …
Adeyemi (University) College of Education posted this on her website
All Applicants who have registered for Adeyemi College of Education Post UTME are requested to upload their O'Level/NCE result(s) where applicable to the JAMB site if they have not done so.
Note the part that says, "... if they have not done so":

The interpretation is simple too.

Just be sure you already have your result with JAMB. In other words, if you’d done that before – don’t worry again. If you’ve not – consider doing that immediately.

University of Ilorin's message was more confusing (and somewhat specific),
This is to notify applicants who scored 50% and above in 2018/2019 Post UTME examination to upload their O'level result on Jamb CAPS
This can be confusing because the school seemed to be so specific.

What I believed happened here was that the school was set to be giving admissions to candidates who scored 50% and above. Therefore they wanted to be sure that all these candidates' SSCE results were already with JAMB before they can recommend them for the body.

They know JAMB will reject recommendation of admission to applicant whose O'level result is not with them.

Ekiti State University (EKSU) is very precise. The school included it in the e-mails sent to their applicants that, only those who used awaiting results are concerned.

Here was how EKSU put it,
To be admitted in to EKSU, you are advice to go to JAMB recognised CBTCentre to upload your O’Level result(s) to your profile on JAMB website immediately. Deadline is Friday 21th September, 2018. This notice applied only to people who have not uploaded their O’Level results.
You can confirm this from any EKSU aspirant.

If you've read a blog post saying that, everybody must go back to upload their results again, it was just a misunderstanding or way to lure you to spend some bucks for CBT centers.

CBT is Re-Uploading for All Candidates. Why?

I’ve got a student telling me that he had already uploaded his NECO result during UTME registration. While he went to another CBT centre, they still re-uploaded it and charged N500 instead of telling him that it’s not for those who had done that earlier.

Well, this is Nigeria. Most people are just opportunists. Most CBT centres can be taking advantage of your innocence and fool you that they re-upload the result. But know this, they don’t. A professional and trusted CBT centre will tell you the truth.

I had personally called some CBT centres and they were helpful to tell me it’s only for those who had not uploaded their results or those who wish to replace the one already uploaded.

Having said that, you should visit a standard and only the accredited CBT centre to seek clarification yourself. If you have a family or friend close to one, they can help you confirm.

And note, the only reason you may want to replace your uploaded O’level result is if you'd used a different result for post UTME or screening other than the one used for UTME registration. If it’s the same, don’t bother.

Quick Update

I'd got Intel that some CBT failed to upload results for some candidates during UTME registration. They did that because of some technical issues they faced while the registration was going on. Hence, I give you a piece of advice regards this in my post, "NO ADMISSION YET, Why O’level Result is the Reason for Delay"

Take a moment to read the linked post referred. It may save you a year.

Conclusion

This is the third year of this misconception. In 2016 and 2017, most applicants were thrown to confusion about this. And if you ask those who are on campus today, they will tell you “it’s just false alarm”. It only concerns awaiting results candidates.

Most of those on campus did not go back to do any re-uploading since they're not using awaiting results. And guess what? They're on campus!

If you want to learn more about this dilemma, you can find all the linked posts above helpful.

Share this post too. It means a lot to me.

How JAMB and Each School Will Give Admission This Year

October 19, 2018
JAMB Official logo
One of the reasons most applicants don't gain admission is the approach to allocating spaces in the institutions they're proposing. Unless you're aware of this, you may still be arguing that a school is cheating because a friend that got lower mark was favoured in the list and you're thrown out of box.

Below is the modalities institutions are using to give admissions. This is in accordance with regulating bodies and JAMB directives. And note that all institutions must adhere to this unless they can face the sanctions thereform.

See: Can JAMB Give Admission from Two or More Schools to a Candidate Through CAPS?
 

Implementation of Science/Art Ratio

All Institutions are to adhere to the Federal Government’s directive on ratio of Admissions into the different disciplines as indicated below:
  1. Science/Art for conventional Universities/Colleges of Education 60:40
  2. Science/Art for Specialised Universities 80:20
  3. Technology/Non-Technology for Polytechnics and Monotechnics 70:30
As indicated above, schools will give admission based on the ratios of Science, Art and Social Science applicants. While Science takes the highest space, Art and Commercial applicants are left with few openings.  

Admissions Guidelines (Formula)

The Admissions Criteria (Formula) currently in operations for all Federal Government owned tertiary institutions in the country are as follows:
  1. Merit 45%
  2. Catchment Area 35%
  3. Educationally Less Developed States 20%
State Government owned tertiary institutions have similar guidelines based on the Laws establishing them while privately owned institutions have more flexibility with Admissions criteria.

See: Admission Merit, Catchment Areas and Educationally Less Developed States: Meaning and Differences

The case of Merit, Catchment Areas and Educationally Less Developed States is not new. But in case, you don't know, For every list a school releases, 45% of them will be dominated by those who meet up with JAMB, SSCE and Post UTME requirement for their proposed courses. 35 percent will come from the school's catchment areas and 20% from less educated states.

Institutions are advised to adhere to the applicable criteria while admitting candidates as these are being monitored on CAPS

Admission Given on JAMB CAPS but Not on School Portal. Here is Why and What to do

October 19, 2018
This is a twin post to my recent one, “Admission is Given on School Portal But Not on JAMB CAPS. Here is Why and what to do.”

I’d written that to put candidates’ minds at rest if they find themselves in such situations.

As for this, let’s see what actually happened if JAMB CAPS has given you admission (and you’d already accepted that) but the school portal has not reflected such.

First, you need to know how school and JAMB work to give you admission. Below is the summary.
  1. Your school prepares the list of candidates they want to offer admission
  2. They should send that to JAMB
  3. JAMB then verifies the list to see if those candidates merit the admission
  4. Then, they upload that to CAPS for applicants to accept.
  5. Candidates can now print JAMB admission letter


See: How JAMB and Each School Will Give Admission This Year

JAMB is Quicker than School to Upload List

Yes. Most schools will wait for JAMB to upload to CAPS and allow enough time for candidates to accept admissions before they will upload the same to their portals.

This approach is mostly used.


Hence, if you find yourselves in this situation, don’t worry. Wait till your school is set to allow you to check admission status on their postal.

In the meantime, you may love to read this guide, “What Candidates Should Do After JAMB Gives Admission on CAPS

Special Situation: If this Case Does not Happen to Other Candidates

Sometimes, after a school has uploaded the list to the portal, you may still not find your name there. This is a different case.

In other words, JAMB has given you admission and the school has also uploaded admission list for candidates to check on the portal. Others have seen theirs both at JAMB and school but you can’t see yours on the school’s portal.

To resolve this issue, you will need to be patient awhile for ICT to complete uploading to the school portal (if they’ve not already).

If after rechecking for some days, the problem persists, kindly visit the school ICT or admission office to report this. They will find a solution to it.

Admission is Given on School Portal But Not on JAMB CAPS. Here is Why and what to do.

October 19, 2018
I’ve got calls and texts from few candidates about this pressing issue. Imagine being offered admission by your school but JAMB CAPS status is still showing not admitted. The opposite situation is when admission is given on JAMB CAPS but not on school portal.

To get to the picture, let see how your admission should look like. To be a bonafide admitted student of any institution, both JAMB and the school should offer him or her that space simultaneously.

Hence, it should be like this
  1. Your school prepares the list of candidates they want to offer admission
  2. They should send that to JAMB
  3. JAMB then verifies the list to see if those candidates merit the admission
  4. Then, they upload that to CAPS for applicants to accept.
  5. Candidates can now print JAMB admission letter

Yes, that’s the picture of admission now in Nigeria.


Then what happens if a candidate sees his or her admission as “ADMITTED” on the school portal but JAMB CAPS still shows “NOT ADMITTED”?


Your School is Quicker than JAMB to Upload

Yes. That’s exactly what happens. Some schools don’t wait for JAMB to load CAPS, they just proceed to load that to their portal admission status page. This is why you see your admission status on the school website but yet to appear on the JAMB's.

Hence, there’s no need to worry. Just keep checking CAPS to see when the message changes to “Accept or Reject Admission”

As you’re expecting, accept the admission so you can print your JAMB admission letter.

Conclusion

Should you have a situation like this, don’t panic. Wait until it reflects on the JAMB portal too. Simple!

If you find this piece helpful, kindly share with others using the share icons below. It means a lot to me too.

NOUN Admissions: Answers to Series of Questions of Prospective Students

October 15, 2018
Official NOUN Logo

EVERYTHING YOU MUST KNOW ABOUT NOUN - CONCLUDE IF IT IS GOOD FOR YOU

I write this post to answer your questions about the National Open University of Nigeria and more.

These are questions I usually get about NOUN from my readers.
  1. What is National Open University?
  2. Is NOUN right for me?
  3. Do I need JAMB UTME to gain admission to NOU(N)
  4. What are NOUN admission requirements?
  5. What are programmes/courses offered by NOU(N)
  6. How is the programme run or conducted?
  7. Do NOUN graduates serve in the NYSC?
  8. Are NOUN Law graduates allowed to continue to Nigerian Bar? And more …


What is NOUN?

Have you heard about Distance Learning programmes before now? If not, DL is designed by various universities to bridge the gap to education for people who are working class or people deprived admission through JAMB UTME. Those universities run such programmes on part-time or sandwich basis. University of Abuja, University of Benin and Lagos State University were covered in my recent posts.

In the same way, the Federal Government of Nigeria distance learning programme is the National Open University. It is aimed at helping you achieving your degree target without leaving your job. This degree programme gives you a chance to work and study at the same time.

Is National Open University Ideal for you?

The next thing you may want to know is if such a programme is right for you.

In a country like Nigeria, anything Federal is more recongnised – we all know that. Even if people want to see it otherwise, the Federal government knows how to make it a big deal. Remember when NECO started in year 2000, most candidates and parents were skeptical - thinking it won’t be recongnised for admission in both local and foreign institutions. Now, the story is huge.

This notion changed when Federal government announced all institutions must accept NECO for admissions.

I’m sure work is ongoing to ensure foreign institutions accept NECO for admissions. And you should know some universities outside are already accepting it. Some articles had been written to confirm this and I had found out particularly that foreign universities such as Brandon University, Canada are already accepting it.

A case like this was when they said “NOUN Bsc. Nursing will not be accepted for working in any hospital”. Just recently, the Board of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria has finally certified NOUN Nursing Programme. Do you now see the picture?

So, don’t listen to critics saying, it won’t be recongnised for jobs and the likes faults.

Hence, if you fall to any of the categories below, consider NOUN:
  1. You have been seeking admission to conventional universities but all efforts proved abortive
  2. You have not been favoured by JAMB in UTME scores. Hence, you couldn’t secure admission elsewhere.
  3. If you’re done with Bsc, HND, NCE, OND but to secure JAMB Direct Entry (DE) admission to universities becomes tug of war.
  4. If you’re already working (or intend to start working while schooling) and no such free time for full-time classroom degree.
Nollywood practitioners, Desmond Elliot, Ini Edo, Okey Ezugwu, and Doris Simeon, all became students of the National Open University of Nigeria

Do I need JAMB UTME to Gain Admission to NOU(N)

No, you don’t. As earlier said, one of the problems NOUN is established to solve is the problem of not gaining admission through the UTME. The school is aware that best students are NOT determined by exams. It’s equally not really easy to be working and at the same time prepare adequately for exams like JAMB UTME. Forget UTME, they gets you covered.


NOUN Admission Requirements
What are the admission requirements? Getting admission to the school requires some perquisites. These requirements depend on your proposed programmes and courses in the school. If you must get this, let’s discuss different courses available and their requirements for admission.

NOUN Available Courses/Programmes

You can join National Open University as a 100 level, 200 level (Direct Entry) or Postgraduate applicant.

Let’s go into details.

Undergraduate Programmes - 100 Level
Generally, the requirements for getting admission into the National Open University of Nigeria include five (5) credits in the SSCE/GCE O’Level/NECO/NABTEB or equivalents at not more than two (2) sittings obtained in subjects relevant to the proposed field(s) of study. The five (5) credits include Credits in Mathematics, English and 3 other relevant subjects. More details can be found under programmes.

Undergraduate Programmes - 200 Level

  3. International Baccalaureates, Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB) with at least two ‘A’ Level papers in relevant subjects and pre-requisite number of ‘O’ Level credit passes.

NOTE
  1.  NOUN does accept IJMB, ND, HND, NCE, Bsc for her 200 level undergraduates admission. Bsc and HND holders may need to visit their intended study centres http://nouedu.net/study-centres-view  to ask if they can be considered for 300 level instead. 
  2. You may be lucky if you have distinction or first class in your HND or Bsc to be given 300 level admission. 
  3. HND applicants with lower credit/pass can also be considered for admission instead of the upper credit stated above. But you will need to speak with them at your proposed study centre first. OND applicants with lower credit/pass can do the same.

How is the programme run? As a distant learning centre or institute, you are to learn at your own pace – as conveniently as you probably choose. Hence, here is the picture of how you will learn at National Open University.
  1. Please note that application starts from generating RRR here and making payment online or bank. Then, return to the website to fill your form.
  2. After your application, the school will give you admission immediately. How? Their computer system will match your proposed course requirements with all application details you fill. Based on this matching, it will decide if you meet or beat their requirements. If you meet or beat the requirements, you will be allowed to print your admission letter (directly on the application portal). If however, you’re not qualified, you won’t be able to see such a letter. In this case, you may need to visit your proposed study centre and ask for way out. They may end up allowing you to study another course you qualify for.
  3. After you’d printed your admission letter, proceed to your proposed study centre. They will conduct physical checking of your credentials and see if everything is right. After that, you will be given some study materials. These study materials are usually softcopies – books you can download and study on your computer or mobile devices. You can equally be given some printed materials – if you’re lucky.

Participating in NOUN TMA
Just like other conventional universities, after you’d studied your course materials, school will conduct one or two tests before exams. These tests, NOUN called it - TMA. You’ll be required to do TMAs – usually two or three. Note that NOUN TMA is online. You will need to visit your candidate TMA page, print out or save your questions, study them, answer them offline, then return online to answer and finally submit them. Your score is immediately displayed. The school shares some tips for learning and preparing for exams here.

Participate in NOUN Exams
Exams are conducted twice a year – first and second semester. You must partake in these exams. It’s important to note that NOUN can conduct the exams online (like TMA) or at study centres across the nation.

This is your routine for the period of your studies.

FAQs
Do NOUN Graduates serve in the NYSC?
 
NYSC has declared that they are not accepting NOUN graduates in the mean time, yet they are being issued with exclusion letters.

You should know that NOUN is continually working on making sure their graduates serve after their programme. The school has recently joined JAMB for this process.

More on this update later.

Are their Law graduates allowed to continue to Nigerian Bar?
Yes – as applicable to NYSC.

What you may lack as a NOUN Student
NOUN is for anybody who won’t mind NOT being on campus. If you’re the type who wants to be on campus to take selfies, NOUN may not be the right choice for you as it doesn’t run conventional university settings, rather study centres for the purpose of exams, counseling and guides.

If however, you still want to enjoy campus life while running National Open University programmes, you can get friends on closer institutions around their study centres. Then, you can have access to your shots on motion ground.

I know NOUN students on the Polytechnic Ibadan campus (since the study centre in Ibadan is so close to the Poly), also students on LAUTECH campus.


Conclusion
NOUN is here to stay. And just recently, National Universities Commission (NUC) has granted approval to the National Teachers Institute (NTI) to run its degree programmes in affiliation with the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN). You can ask from your relatives already running NTI courses.

Another achievement as United States (US) embassy in Abuja sets to establish a partnership with the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) towards enriching the programmes of the university.
