Re: Nigerian Institute Of Public Relations by holykiss: 9:17pm On Jul 17, 2010
I took part in the may/june proffessional exams, the exams seems easy but i heard that 75% failed the last exam, especially the certificate level. While is the failure rate this his. However, one thing i noticed is that the questions are quite trickised one need to be probably grounded in the field of public relations in other to anwer those questions correctly. It definete that the study materials/lectures cannot help one to pass these exams.
Re: Nigerian Institute Of Public Relations by Idagu(m): 6:23pm On Jul 23, 2010
@holykiss

I agree with you that the questions in the NIPR exams are applied questions and will need practical knowledge to be able to apply them, but STRONGLY DISAGREE that Lectures and study materials can not prepare you for the exams. Maybe it is because of the lectures/Materials you probably recieved for your preparation. I wish to state that there are lecture centers where you will get exam focused and practical lectures that will prepare you well enough for the exams and position you for the practice of Public Relations. There are testimonies to my claims.
