Alphamaximus Wins Xfire Nairaland Undergraduate Scholarship, 2nd Edition by xfire: 7:19pm On Feb 13
Good day all,

The hour has come to announce and reward the deserved winners of the 2nd Edition of the Xfire Nairaland Undergraduate Scholarship Competition after a very rigorous exercise!

More than 470 students signified interest and registered for the competition. Find below link to registration:

http://www.nairaland.com/4280842/annual-xfire-nairaland-undergraduate-quiz

The first test was conducted on 23rd January, 2018 out of which 67 candidates scaled through to the next stage based on a pass mark of 45%. See link below:

http://www.nairaland.com/4299199/shortlisted-candidates-2018-xfire-nland

A 2nd test was conducted on 27th January 2018 and subsequently a final (3rd) test was conducted on 10th February 2018 to serve as the decider. See link below:

http://www.nairaland.com/4308525/2nd-edition-xfire-nairaland-scholarship

The winners were decided based on highest scores in the 3rd test. Where there are ties, the average score of the 1st and 2nd test was used to rank the candidates.

A total of the top 15 students will be awarded as follows:

Winner – N100,000

1st Runner Up – N45,000

2nd Runner Up – N35,000

4th and 5th best – N10,000 each

6th to 15th best – N1,000 recharge card vouchers / top-up each


I will also like to use this opportunity to thank Mayflowa who contributed N50,000 which led to an upward adjustment of the initial cash prizes (winner – 70k to 100k, 1st Runner Up – 40k to 45k, 2nd Runner Up – 30k to 35k). This also ensures the 6th to 15th placed students go home with N1,000 recharge card each.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!


Though, this is far below expectation, it's to all newly admitted 100level students of university of Ibadan, especially those on the aspirants thread. We all can raise our heads above Water.

There's nothing a bloody freshman like me could have done, but I look forward to performing better than this in subsequent editions and being one if the sponsors in future.

Thanks to the organizers and moderators. It's high time Seun osewa started something like this too.. We all built nairaland together, you should have a way of giving back to us..

Thanks once again

Congratulations to all winners and everyone that participated in the test

First of all, I will like to thank the coordinators of the competition, Richiez and Odunharry. They have done wonderfully well organizing this. They also handled all enquiries and feedbacks with outstanding maturity. They have worked tirelessly and their effort is not been driven by pecuniary gains.

From the information at my disposal, I can objectively say this competition was an improvement in terms of standards, fairness and level playing field. The introduction of a 2nd test, a novel initiative of Richiez, is a wonderful idea and has come to stay.

Richiez is a very great intellect. On a lighter mood, when I saw the test questions, I was like ‘thank God this dude does not work in JAMB’. If that dude works in JAMB, students will pray and fast to get 150/400. grin Well done for organizing all the tests. Odunharry is a workhorse, always ready to provide assistance and get things done.

I will also like to recognize dejt4u, a past coordinator who provided support from time to time wink

Of course, there were a number of areas for improvement. That will be worked on going forward.

I hope we will do this again next year. Wouldn’t have wished for better coordinators. God will make us all bigger.

A big round of applause for the coordinators!!

Now to all participants….

I will like to thank you all for your patience and endurance. I must confess, this edition was much more rigorous than the previous one. I sincerely believe every participant is a winner irrespective of whether we emerge as one of the top 15 participants or not.

The questions were tougher, the selection criteria were stiffer, verification process was much more intense and additional checks were put in place to ensure fairness. To have passed through all these, you are a winner, no doubt.

The essence of this scholarship is to promote academic excellence and competitiveness. We are committed to contributing our own little quota to improving the educational standard in Nigeria. To that end, we have the moral right to ensure fairness and a level playing field for all the participants as much as we can, within the limits of online assessment which is not physically supervised. That was what led to the conduct of a 3rd (final) test to decide the winners.

Lemme say categorically that there will be no need to conduct a 3rd stage test in subsequent editions as we will improve on this edition. However, the conduct of a 2nd stage test, a great idea from the coordinators, has come to stay.

All your feedbacks (both positive and negative) are well received. We used a better test platform this year resulting in significant reduction in number of candidates having issues accessing the platform compared to the last edition. I honestly empathize with the few who had connection issues. However, the onus lies on the candidates to ensure they use good gadgets and stay in locations where internet availability is strong.

Irrespective of the test method, only 15 candidates can emerge top and only 1 can emerge overall winner. So I implore all candidates to take the result in the spirit of sportsmanship. smiley

A STANDING OVATION FOR ALL THE PARTICIPANTS!!!!!

Now to the main activity….announcement of winners. It is gonna be a countdown

I will start with the 6th to 15th placed winners, followed by the 4th and 5th best winners. And then 3rd, 2nd……..and finally the overall winner!!!!

Please note that I insisted that the initial criteria for selection set by the coordinators be adhered to (must have registered before June 2017 and must have posted a minimum of 6 times prior to 11th January 2018 when the the quiz was announced ). 2 candidates who initially made the top 15 cut were disqualified on my request to stick to the initial criteria. They shouldn't have been selected in the first place. Hopefully, we will improve on quality of our initial screening / shortlisting of candidates in subsequent editions.

In addition, one candidate was disqualified on account of dual identity (different persons using the same moniker), while another was disqualified because evidence shows he has more or less graduated.
