Except we are all interpreting it wrongly tho!
I hope this favours me and kudos to the organizers for a job well-done so far!

Stop this sycophancy.
This is not a well-done job.
We didn't interpret anything..that's why questions were asked and nobody saw fit to reply till now.
If this had been spelt out properly why would I have bothered about the 3rd test, knowing that my 2nd test was botched by network.?
I seriously just hope this gets better in subsequent editions because this is just below par.

So you mean with my 70 54 and 71 ...I am not even qualified for consideration? People have been asking questions on this yet you guys kept quiet only to come now and say this?

If 60 is the cutoff for the second test why was I allowed to write the third test putting me through the stress and all?

You guys wasn't really prepared for this at all, nd what happened to " all the 67 candidates have a new chance at winning something"?
You guys are really confused... sincerely
most likely, they will add ur second and third test scores....I.e ur 54 and 71.
Last yr's was far less stressful. I hope they will be better organized in the coming yrs.

Fellas, I think the organizers are trying their best to get the right winners, they also have other things to do other than organize the competition.

Maybe there's a problem under the hood we are not aware of, but they are trying. Rememeber participation is free and they are actually gonna be the one to spend their resources and have been putting in effort without any pay. That's kinda rare in our Nigeria.

Whether it is voluntary or compulsory, transparency should have never been compromised.

I do agree and I am not also satisfied with how things are going, but people taking this issue as if they are trying to defraud or scam the participants is unfair.
Even if the system of competition is not totally satisfactory, they did their best with the best intentions, I suppose.

Thanks a lot for the response. I guess the coordinators (Richiez and Odunharry) appreciate all the feedbacks, whether positive or negative. They have done an amazing job. Appreciate everyone's patience too.

Just to clarify on the issue of selection of winners, the coordinators have since finalized the list of 15 deserved winners and communicated same to me. I'm hoping they will start contacting them as soon as possible so as to draw this competition to a successful close.

What I have noticed from the whole process is that the organizers tried asmuch as possible to give every candidate a level playing field (hence the first second and third test) Except for the obvious flaw of unclear communications I sincerely think the organizers did a good job. Besides it's a free scholarship (and they reserve the right to change the rules as they deem fit in the best interest of all Candidates). Let's quit this blame game and move on. I am pretty sure you wouldn't be complaining if the test results have favoured you

You call this a fair playing ground? Say the truth for once, the organization is a total flaw! I had my doubt the very first moment the pass mark was scaled down to 45! ...the. moderators said it doesn't matter because the first test score would be used cumulatively. Now my first test which I did averagely well had been trashed!
Even if one person had reached the 60pass mark they never should have compromised that, it speaks standard and transparency!



And which competition gives it's selection criteria after the competition is over?
