Confused About My Masters Program by Nobody: 3:46am On Sep 04, 2014
Ooohk...I wanna run a masters program in any good Nigerian university but its not just working out cos all the schools I have been to said they only admit students who had a 3.0 cgpa or above..... D problem is, I graduated with a cgpa below 3.0(second class lower though)

This is where I need your help.....!!

Anyone here that know of any good Nigerian university that admits students that graduated with a cgpa below 3.0??(but stl second class lower)

I don't think there is any school like that. Since your cgpa is below you will have to do a post graduate diploma (PGDE) before applying for a master's programme.

I thought PGD is only for those that graduated with a third class

Why don't you do it in the school you got your first degree? Your department would welcome you back.

Whats wrong with doing your Msc with the Uni you did your Bsc? Its not like you particularly have a plethora of choices. You can make enquiries at Unilag, the PGD admission is on.

nope. If less than 3.0, you'd have to do PGD first(I don't know if its so in all naija Uni) you could look for schools that run their masters program very fast. That way, even with the PGD, you wouldn't have to spend a lot of time.

Try applying to a state institution...the competition is usually lower.then make sure you do well in the entrance tests.

As for me,I'm running my masters in UI right now and I got in with less than 3.0 cgpa. I did well in d entrance test and I guess I was lucky dat most pple wif higher cgpa didn't perform very well in d test. These days a lot of pple dat shouldn't have had above 3rd class come out wif 2.1....Nigerian factor I guess grin
