Government Universities Admission System Is A Sham
Today, many of our graduates have degree they never dreamt of having, they carry a certificate they never wanted, most of them had their dreams shattered when they saw their admission letter but due to societal pressure they decided to proceed with what was written in the letter offered to them.
Nigerian universities, majorly government (federal and state) owned university have killed most of our children's hope of becoming or studying what they really wanted, just by offering them a course that are far from what they planned to study.
Let's take a case study of unilorin, many young chaps applied for different courses and instead of the University to not render them admission maybe due to low mark scored or some internal politics, they would rather offered them some courses that are not useful to them or the country in actual sense. Why can't we emulate the western world, if you apply for a course and u merit the course you would b offered admission and if you don't they will write you and tell you that u are not the kinn of material they wanted in their school. Here in Nigeria candidates who wants to study computer science might b given economics education, someone who applied to study medicine would be offered admission into agriculture extension , my God does any of these make sense?!!
I just want to ask you guys if u see any reason or point in this system and position these universities are putting our ward through is worth it or should it be revised and be rewritten?
