I had my interview yesterday and it was a bit OK. I arrived the venue as early as 08:30am, I met well dressed and serious looking young men and women also coming for the interview and was led to a reception by a Ptdf staff. After a briefing by Ptdf officials, we were sent to the verification room where our interview invite and application print out were checked and confirmed from their computer, I am sure they must have checked our pictures as well. From there, they sent us in to different interview rooms, when it came to my turn, I entered and met three members panel and the interview started.
I first introduced myself, my course of study, my place of work, universities in to which I am applying etc after that, questions started coming. The lead interviewer jokingly said I must have applied to University of Manchester because I am a Man U fan and I defiantly said no, I gave my reasons. Other questions came in and I answered satisfactorily. They had to stop me at intervals and asked me to repeat what I said, they thought I crammed something from the way I spoke fast... lol
I was then asked to present my awards and publications and I did. My publications were noted and accepted but when it came to awards, it was a tug of war. I dragged and argued to the extent of angering the interviewers and they said let's bring white board and marker make you teach us our responsibility since we are answerable to you and not to Ptdf. At that point I apologized and 4 four out of seven awards I presented were accepted but after another round of arguments and clarifications. At the end , they applauded my doggedness but condemned what they called stubbornness and disregard of elders which I have shown. I apologized again and jocking said " a drowning man has no option but click to anything wey come his path" and they all bursted in to a laughter. They wished me all the best and I wished them the same. I departed and called the next person.

I did my interview Thursday, the time for my interview was 3:00pm, but I arrived 12:00noon. So I was ask to join the 12noon set. In a nutshell, u must not follow ur time slated at the invite.
Secondary, during my application, I did not upload any SOP, it was after I was invited I wrote my SOP two days before the day and I went with five copies. But they later ended up using one copy and it was later given back to me.

My center is PTDF Towers, Abuja.

Wish us all best of luck.

Based on this I'll like to know how they'll get to know the impact factor of the journal ... Can they possibly have the impact factor of all journals? I doubt ... So using impact factor calls fot a lot of questions, just saying


Wonder2019:
Based on my experience, the O level grading is true, cos the guy who computed mine took his time to check them well, and he was computing on the screen, and giving feedback to the second interviewer beside him. And the awards the lead interviewer told me cos i asked him. He said maximum of four awards and one publications is okay. The journals are graded based on impact factor. Its possible for one to submit two journals and not still get the full 5 marks. And another can submit just one journal and still get complete 5 marks. I don't know for the SOP and Class of degree, but I know the marks will vary for different grades.

Greetings Y'all.

My experience at the University of Ibadan PTDF center was pretty straightforward. I had my interview yesterday at around 9:45am.

Following my arrival into the interview room, I was instructed to sit by one of the panelists (they were three in number). Thereafter, I was asked to introduce myself, which I did immediately. Further, I was told to spell my surname as they could not easily grasp it (at this point, they were verifying my details on the system).

One of the panelists quickly collected my file, and perused all the relevant documents present. The other two were just corroborating the details I had filled into the system during the profile updating period.

Shortly after, they started reading out my qualifications which I nodded in affirmative.

Then I was asked to present any awards I have, but I told them I had none. Thereafter, I was told to present my publications if I had any. I told them that I've five publications.

At first, the lead interviewer was pretty shocked, and he asked, 'how is it possible to have five publications all in one year'? In fact He appeared to be astonished. For your information, all the publications came out in different months in 2018.

The other interviewer asked when I graduated, and what I have been doing following the end of my Bsc and what I'm currently doing, all of which I carefully did.

They were still dumbfounded with respect to the number of publications I had (as a first degree holder), until I brought all of them out, after which they started perusing them one after the other. They asked me who each co-author on each paper were to me, and I answered appropriately. I believe this cleared their doubt (lol).

Then I was asked the ultimate question, 'what do you want to do'? Well, I answered the question to the best of my ability, and that marked the end of the interview.

FYI, they didn't not even look at my SOP neither did they ask me any questions related to it.

Best wishes guys, God's Grace will speak for us all.

U r right bro. I heard one ptdf staff saying that this week is entirely for MSc as next week is for PhD. So PhD scholars chill well before the battle starts.



This is not true. My friend PhD did his on 29th with so many PhD applicants, I did mine with so many PhD s on 2nd,my other friends on 3rd

Yea. You're very correct. What it only means is that there is a divide between high and low impact journals. They already know the class of journals they classified to have high impact(Elsevier and co) or vice versa...

For now, let's forget anything about marking or no marking scheme. Let's ask God to just favour us. I believe by next month everyone will know how far. So let's not be bothered about pubs or awards. I just shared based on what I learnt from the panelists.

Cheers!
