Automatically, it gives you an edge over your peers who are not one say you decide to start business in a market where most of the traders are school leaver, automatically you will be a better candidate for secretarial duties and other posts. Same applies to myriad of situations.

Jutresbien: Not when the graduate can't tell the difference between there and their
This is just a mere oversight and as such is admissible.
The attitude of our pedantic and pedagogical ignoramuses in this site is becoming highly insufferable.

Cease e*j*a*c*u*l*a*t*i*n*g these innuendos. Its pathetic, the common mistakes you make.

O.T.I.S:

then you as the graduate why not answer his question?
how does one become truly or untruly a graduate?
graduate of/from/in what?
typical nigerian moronic semi educated fellow.

@OP
i suggest you visit your dictionary for the meanings of the word graduate, then you wouldn't ask such a question based on nigerian mentality(perception of the word graduate). One can graduate from a high school, nursing school, catering school, sports academy, even technical schools. not necessarily uniben/unilag as most nigerians think. if you are aware of this fact, then there would be no sense in asking "what is special"
Nairalanders with their superciliousness and megalomania. Didn't you catch the guy's drift.
It's indubitable that the word graduate is used in the popular sense to mean 'one who has a varsity degree'
So why being pernickety overmuch.

drexx: But seriously it saddens my heart to know the illiteracy rate in this country. That someone spent 4 years in the higher institution and can't write simple and correct english goes a long way to establish the fact that nigerian graduates are not employable. Really pathetic

U do not expect him 2b accurate because he is not writing an english examination,even the oyibo we imitating do not write correct spellings in dis kind of forums....4those english profs. that would want 2score my use of english,u can go n hug transformer down ur street cos i don't mind.

My dear!
The tin don tire me! And to think that so many so-called graduates make this mistake!
They mistake there for their,
Here for hear,
Where for were
These for this
Waist for waste
Write for right
Proof for prove. Etc. Reading and comprehending simple essays has become a big problem now.
The level of education just keeps diminishing everyday. I wonder if there's still hope for our future generation. So pathetic!
That is no howler but a mere admissible peccadillo. So why the bedlam?

Adeniyi A.:
well,the guy must be living in the most slumiest of the slumiest part of Lag. to attract such appreciative attention
I'm afraid. No word like 'slumiest' or phrase like 'most slumiest'.
The word 'slum' is a noun, also a verb.
Thanks.

EmmyDe25: Gud morning everyone... Hpe u al had a merrious christmas? I just graduated from one of d Nigerian universities, and ever since i got home; whch was about 2months ago, d level of treatment i receive frm pple in my street got me so dazed that i am beginning to feel so overrated...

To me i dont feel dia's anytin special abt bin a graduate cos i blv numberless of dem can be found roamin d strit buh d level at whch ds pple kips placing me continue to make me feel so elevated nd has practicaly left me in awe... D question nw is.. is dia anytin spectacular abt bin a graduate? Pls handle me gently cos i knw quite a noba of pple hia are so gud at usin acerbic/acidic statement... I beseech u.

With your level of written English, I am not surprised that people around you think you have done so well, you must be sandwiched among mediocres. Having said that, where I stay and even my immediate family have rolled out so many professionals and professors that no one will bat an eye lid at the fact that you just managed a first degree. As I write, I have two masters degrees but the only thing that counts for me is the fact they seem to notice I am fairly successful as a lawyer and at my age. Bottom-line is, distinguish yourself and people will celebrate you, acquisition of first degree stopped being a big deal years back. Every family has at least one graduate, so what da phock are you yapping about. I am so incensed now. Mtchewwwwwww
