@Sawyer89, Sorry 4 my late reply...I`m always glad 2 share my toefl experience with any prospective test-taker...I prepared for mine within a week cos of my emergent need for it then, and by the grace of God, I had almost 100 points. With much time 4 u to prepare, I think u hv a chance of performing better. These are my defined rationale:
First...I believe every task is very easy with God`s help...Put God first...
Second...U need self-confidence (the whims dt u can do it) that is very much less than what it took u 2 hv a first class...
Third...Get conversant with the modality of the test. The 4 sections (Speaking, reading, writing and listening). U can achieve this, by downloading a toefl ibt sample on d ets website...www.ets.org...Install d sample on ur system...it gives u an idea of wat 2 expect on d test day and what u are expected 2 do in every section...BUT, in reality d test itself cannot be compared in anyway 2 d sample (really standard).
Fourth....It will be good if u can get either Kaplan textbook or barron textbook 4 toefl...(Note: Don`t read them like normal textbks...Just glance thru d pages 2 extract d key points as to what 2 expect in d sections and how u`re expected 2 answer the questions to earn ur full points). I`m saying this, because I believe ur level of English is more than the details they wasted so many pages on, which makes d textbks appear big and scaring 2 read. Personally, I finish Kaplan within 2days and revised it over for another 3 days.
Fifth....Get urself conversant with d use of computer b4 d test day. Technology-fear is a latent problem. As u know, d test is 100% online and u will be using a prometric microphone for d entire test.
Sixth....Time allowed for d test in each section is d most important hinderance u`hv 2 try 2 overcome b4 d test day. For example: Practise typing on ur system everytime to perfect ur typing speed and accuracy 4 d writing section. For d listening, what really help me here was that I watch alot of foreign movies which has really made me addicted to d American accent (Note: If u`re not a foreign movie freak, pls try to be watching documentaries or shows where they speak American accent b4 d test day...this is a very delicate section). For the reading section, never try to read thru passage...I`ll advice u read d first paragraph or even few lines in d first paragraph to hv an idea of what d passage wl be presenting....then move to d questions...most questions will definitely point to d paragraph in wc u can find d answer...be careful with d use of English in ds section and watch ur time.....For the speaking section, d toefl sampler will expose u 2 d kind of qstns to expect...For questions that deals with presentation or discussion on a topic to express ur preference 4 something...there are variety of qstns dt u should be exposed to b4 d test day and practise discussing d topisc 2 urself several times until u can present excellent speeches within d stipulated time (i think 30 or 45 secs)...I think I hv a reliable material on that....U can send me ur e-mail address
Finally....On the test day...be urself....be cool and calm...hv all your senses coordinated and concentrated on the test (this is very much important in d listening, writing and speaking sections so as not to miss any detail necessary to answer d subsequent questions) mind the time given in all d sections...and finish with God....Wishing u d very best......

Mr Akang: I'm sorry to hear about your friend's case. I was not also satisfied with the fact that, the information about the application was not as publicized as the promise or announcement which made it to the headlines and frontpages of some newspapers up to an extent that people on your street who don't even know what a first class means could have heard about it, and I think the promise was even part of the democracy day broadcast of the president. Although the NUC or the committee can argue that they published it in a Newspaper or on their website: www.nuc.edu.ng but, there was no specific information before then on whether the Federal scholarship board's website or that of NUC, or whether a newly created website would be used for the application process. How then, were all applicants expected to know that NUC's website would be used for the application process? The promise or annoucement by the president did not give a specific time dimension to when the scheme would start in the year, so, were expectant applicants expected to check every page of every newspaper daily, even when they don't have an idea of when the scheme would start or the name it would bear?
I could have missed out on the application too, because I got to know by randomly searching the net for it, just few days to the application's closing date. So, I feel your friend's pain & I feel it could have happened to anyone (I'm an example).
About what can be done...Honestly, I don't think he can avail the opportunity of the scheme this year anymore... But from one of the bulletins of NUC, I was made to understand that the scheme is annual and continuous, and that they'll sponsor 500 next year... But as you can see, even people that wrote the aptitude test are still "scratching their heads" on many things about the scheme, because there is no final list yet, some weeks after the aptitude test or any publicly noticeable progress. You know that this is Nigeria. Right? grin

Yes! Finally the long awaited List of Successful candidates for the National University Commission (NUC), Presidential Special Scholarship Scheme For Innovation And Development (PRESSID) is out. The good news is that, all the candidates that sat for the selection test on 13/08/2012 were awarded the scholarship. This is because more fund has been released by the federal government and also to increase the level of experienced scholars that will be returning to develop the country after their studies. This will enhance national development faster than expected. To check for the list of successful candidates click here www.nuc.edu.ng/wizzle04dreams.

The wait continues. I have an idea anyways, though I do not have the contacts I may be needing. They can afford to keep us in the dark for this long because we may not have someone to speak for us. Nobody is necessarily asking them to do what is not in their action plans, but they can at least give an update, a feed back kind of, stating clearly at what stage the process is, and challenges they are facing, if at all there is any. You don't try this in developed countries. I remember some press gentlemen were at the test venue on that day. I personally saw NTA and VOA. This means they are involved since it is a national issue. The voice of the electronic and print media, if you ask me, is the loudest in this country. The press can wade into this matter and in less than 24 hours, I assure everyone, answers will emerge. Situational reports will start erupting from all corners concerned. If the press does not get immediate answers, we all can trust them for what they can do. Imagine one of these popular news-hungry AIT reporters stepping into NUC headuarters to get answers from PRESSID committee! Immediate harvest of information! So this is my suggestion.The Press!! Can we involve them?

Good one from gzendo, I think this is a great idea that has to be taken up.
If there is anyone that has contacts of some of the pressmen working for any of the newspapers, I think a statement/ article should be sent to them so they can some raw materials to start with. Immediately I saw gzendo's suggestion, I hurriedly composed something that can be improved upon and sent to a publishing house so that it can reflect in tomorrow's newsprints.

NIGERIA, WHY WASTE YOUR BEST BRAINS?
How on earth would it take Nigeria more than a month to select 100 worthy candidates from just over 400 that took the selection test? Could it be that the grading process of the selection exam is so tedious and time-consuming? Obviously NO, the exam was computer based with the scores revealed to candidates immediately after the test. Could it be that the coordinators are waiting for appropriate time to release the list? Definitely not, most schools are to resume this September and the President stated specifically that the scheme would be for this year. Could the suspense be due to “federal character” issues? May be not, the President said it would be solely on merit.

The delay in the release of the successful candidates only raises more questions about the credibility of the whole scheme. Is this PRESSID scheme a serious agenda of the federal government? Is it on the list of their priorities? If releasing just the list is taking this long, how long will releasing money (funds) take? Wouldn't anybody, who finally makes the list need to pray twice or thrice harder than he/she did before making the list so that this attitude of delaying things doesn't continue? Or are they trying to ensure that everything is ready (including the funds) before releasing the list? Could that be the reason for the delay? The basic truth is this: the longer the list remains undisclosed, the more likely it would not be based on merit.

While most of the candidates have demonstrated their proactiveness and passion for further studies by securing admissions already into these prestigious schools, they can only get signals that the government cares less such progressive efforts. If the government cannot meet up with the resumption dates of most these schools, does that mean the potential awardees would have to wait for one year before they can start the pursuit. That will be a bit unfortunate. You can't keep your best brains dormant and unproductive for one year!!

While these lads now face a critical decision on which direction for their career, they may be forced to take up career industries that do not suit their competencies and passion. How passionate can an engineer turned banker be about his job? While these graduates are excited at the opportunity to nurture their minds in conducive and favourable environments and in the nearest future add significantly to academia of this country, such dreams might be forced dissolve into the thin air if the government remains mum on the way-forward about the scheme. After a long period of agonizing wait, the government should come out and clear the air on their plans for PRESSID, which would help those expectant close their minds to an unlikely possibility rather than hopelessly waiting for a scheme whose fate has already been determined a long time ago. While some have already given up on the scheme, some are holding on with the belief that a Federal Government scheme announced by the President on a significant day like the nation’s Democracy day cannot fail just like that. Which of these two groups of people would be correct at the end of the day?


Like I mentioned earlier, people can suggest relevant modifications to this write-up while someone submits it for publishing. I have the believe that this forum is wonderful and we can make the relevant authorities come out with a statement.
Let the contributions roll in.

Hi all, while the press thing for pressid (pun intended) is a good idea. I think the right thing to do will be to first contact NUC for the status of the final list. After then it will make sense to go to the press. We shouldn't in too much desperation make these guys look bad or irresponsible. It's possible they are giving their best to this.

The NUC bulletins contain some phone numbers. We can start by all planning to call in on a planned date.

@logbon72, I agree that we should not make the NUC look bad and in fact there was no where in the write-up that makes specific reference or questions the NUC's competence.

Our effort should be directed at the FG or the Ministry of Education. I remember that in a post on this thread, someone mentioned that he visited the NUC to inquire about the award and was told that NUC was done with the selection but awaits approval from the presidency/ FG. Besides, I have a friend who has been in contact with one of the hotlines of NUC who also got the same explanation i.e. presidential approval is still pending.

We need to get someone in the FG to come make a statement on the whole imbroglio.
