Talking about the PTDF scholarship, I know 3 folks that were awarded last year one PhD and 2 MSc. Without any Publication and award and to further stress that the MSc candidates are 2:1 graduates while the PhD scholar had a 2:1 in his undergraduate and a Distinction from Manchester for his MSc. Sponsored by ptdf. When I got talking with them they all told me same thing its not about the awards and publications or first class but its about how u can successfully argue and defend ur proposal and sop.

I could tell from my experience this year, wen I got in touch with the panelists I was so happy that the lead panelist is a core environmentalist meaning I have someone that can comprehend with wateva I av to say in my field, quickly he asked wat research am I plunging into at Manchester, wat skills do I hope to gain and how do I envisage integrating these skills on return. I already contact with the center Leader Center for Atmospheric Studies CAS at the University of Manchester who had drilled me on the aspect of my propose research which is just a fraction of a project he is working on. After I finished responding to the questions, the panelist went try my documents and scored each of them and he told me that he will indicate in his recommendation section that I already have contact at Manchester that will aid my work and my propose research is a rare area and I will be one of very few professionals in Nano science if I decide to go for phd.

Overall my interview was fun and they congratulated me and told me to make sure my documents are well intact before I travelled. That got me shocked.

I never knew there was a comment section by panelist, I believe in as much as we all av al the documents awards and publications etc the panelists recommendations also counts. U can av all the awards and very good class of degree but if ur proposal ain't justifiable even with a high score, their comments on ur propose work might count u out.

I always believed that there must be provision for panelists to make comments especially about applications they deem exceptional. Congrats by the way.

pls keep your hearsay to yourself. ...


What happens if no candidate scored up to 70% in a particular state. ....E.g ..100 candidate from state A applied but none of them scored up to 70% ....are you saying that no candidate will be offered the scholarship


Bro, let me tell you, this scholarship is all about competing with your fellow kinsmen from your state.

score is judged according to the overall performance of all candidate from your state.


while Mr Buhari who scored 2/100 from Katsina state ....and emerges top 4 from Katsina state may be selected , ....Mr Obi from Anambra state who scored 95/100 but not among top 4 from Anambra . ..may not be selected.



Mtshw Mr. this is to tell you how competitive it is this time. Class of degree alone and Olevel carried 60% of the 100% meant for the interview. With these kinda free marks , tell me how easy it is going to be for those with low marks. Many candidates had first class and flat A's and B's in their WAEC. When it came to SOP, many were getting not less than 20/25

What about if nobody could got 70% from a particular state? Would they consider such state?
That is practically impossible bro. Check the grading criteria this time.

You are 100% right, also graduate assistants had automatic recommendations for MSc unless their performance is disastrous.

Bravo!! ��

I think you just made a good point! I have a background in petroleum engineering, and am going for GLOBAL MANAGEMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES at UCL, London. At first my interviewer was shocked! he now asked me why going for Management when I already have a background in Petroleum Engineering? when did you graduate? and what have you been doing since then? I responded that haven studied the programs (GMNR) Modules at UCL, I discovered it entails the application of Geological, geophysics, geochemistry and Engineering Processes in converting Natural (raw) materials into finished commodity, which is not limited to oil/gas anyway, secondly, haven also worked with port harcourt refining company as a secretary to the deputy manager, engineering and technical services department, general engineering and project management section, I was saddled with the responsibility of evaluating contract biding documents..........., when I mentioned all of these, the interviewer was able to build a bridge between Petroleum Engineering and my choice course, Management. Before I could finish answering the question, the second interviewer started applauding me. Initially, I taught he was been sarcastic, I wasn't so excited about his applause, for reason been that they had earlier rejected one of my awards. I only became happy when he hit the nail on the head by telling me "Young man you have gotten a great profile! Honestly speaking, I love your profile, you did well, you need not boarder at all, having two publications already at your level that seriously borders on oil and gas, speaks volume to your effort in proffering solution to the short falls in the oil and gas industry"! Just like he said, my two publications were: 1. AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS INTO CORROSION PROBLEMS AT KADUNA REFINERY AND PETROCHEMICALS, USING LOCAL CRUDE OIL BLEND, 2. MODELLING TANKER LOADING AND FIRE WATER RING MAIN SYSTEMS, USING PIPENET SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS, of which I published in an international Journal. The Kaduna Refinery work caught his attention, been that he is from the North, and he almost killed me with questions from that area. However, lets keep hope in God, you can never tell the outcome from other centres. Best regards and wishing all divine success.

Bro! it is 100% possible that some eventual winners of this award might fall below 70%, say between 65% and 70%, some might even fall below 65% in some states, dn't forget that some 2:2 with higher number of job experience were equally invited for the interview, so you can never tell. Lets just wait patiently for the shortlist!

OTHER FACTORS GUIDING THE SELECTION OF CANDIDATES FOR THE AWARD OF PTDF OVERSEAS SCHOLARSHIP

It's possible. You graduated with 2 1 (which is 24 marks according to the so called marking scheme), no A's or B's in your O level (which you'll get 15 points or less), no awards and publications and you got 25/25 or less in your SOP. If you do the maths, at most case (24+15+25) = 64. So It's possible bro

I smell frustration in the air.
Y'all should stop all these unnecessary talks about grading, recommendations, etc. It will only further your frustration.
PTDF shortlisted all those who were invited based on merit. If they didn't think we were worthy they wouldn't have invited us. If your profile wasn't awesome you wouldn't have made the cut, but remember that you're not the only awesome guy from your state and put your fate in the hands of who you believe in.
Y'all should close your eyes and look up so we can pray. Lol.
I hope you're feeling better now.

Thank you. Anyone who made it to interview shld know he/she is worthy. We can only pray for grace. The score might not be the only criteria. Things like the gap PTDF is trying to close based on courses of study could also come into play.
