my sister was about to do PHD that was when she went to collect her certificate but she has kids (married) did her masters outside nigeria, came back is still working.
she only use statement of result and transcript for master application (d university sponsored her)


but if you are saying you didn't graduate (no result) then it's not fair to yourself, at least 3rd class, to prove you didn't waste your 4 yrs or more with nothing to show fort.
bill gate / the rest dropped out of "Havard " (to get admission shows you are too good).

it's relevant because even bill/mark still have other certifications from Havard now.

if I wanna employ you and I don't see any cogent reason why you dropped out or finished with out a certificate, I will not take you.
it means you may not be a goal getter, you don't finish a task given to you

Please how important is the First School Leaving certificate? Have heard that it's really essential in the work force to the extent of people being retrenched because of lack of it. I just graduated from the university and I didn't take the examination and thus don't have the certificate. I will like to know if anyone of us here has any experience pertaining to this certificate. Thanks.

If u can, get it. But believe me, it is the most useless piece of document.

First school leaving certificate is just a piece of paper.

It stop being of no value as of 2003

Your university degree is still of no use, employers who really do need your services will still hire you even if you have toilet tissue paper
You must be kidding @ your last statement.

Some public institutions insist on it to guage a staff's age.
That's how they fish out some employees who falsified their ages. By the time they are screening and reconciling your acclaimed age, and they see that you wrote the exam when you were two years old, you know that it has cast for you.
grin
Hahahahaha! It has cast for you. I yaff died oh. All these ajekpako girls forming porsh, una no go kill us oh. Na it has cast for you abi, it has red for you.

Not really relevant, I think. Your President Buhari did not produce his- actually, he claimed it was with the military board- and he is still President.

Not relevant, me thinks.

You may be right but such waiver may explode in an unanticipated manner, for instance; change in government may bring in policies that will render such "automatic employment" useless PAINFULLY

nope but look at it from this angle.

even when you don't like the course you can quit early enough not waiting till your finals than you will tell me you don't want to collect your certificate because it's not relevant, that's "giving up". it's like you don't like a job given.to you then you still went ahead to start it then you.didnt stop midway but continued till the elapsed time then jump to another project.
it's shows you are not a finisher(even a bad finished run is better than stopping half way and given excuses)

I will employ a skilled person more than a certificate person if the certificate person don't have the skills.
