you have to wait and get the certificate, it takes about 6 weeks. no means to fast track it.

When does your IELTS expire?

Hello
For me, it was my middle name omitted in the certificate. What I did was to:
Send a mail/contact form to WES, informing them of the name differences and that its still me. Also did a one and same person affidavit and sent to them via fax along with my certificates.
In your case, you may also try to contact your school to indicate the correct name in verification.
Hope this helps.
Inno3420:
HI EVERYONE, PLS I NEED YOUR INPUT ON THIS. MY CERTIFICATE THAT WAS SENT TO WES LAST YEAR HAD A LITTLE ERROR IN MY MIDDLE NAME. IE TWO LETTERS WAS OMITTED. I DIDN'T NOTICE IT UNTIL I WANTED TO USE THE CERTIFICATE FOR SOMETHING ELSE. I IMMEDIATELY APPLIED FOR RECTIFICATION IN MY SCHOOL AND IT WAS RECTIFIED ALTHOUGH I HAVEN'T GONE TO PICK UP THE NEW COPY. NOW WES HAS SENT VERIFICATION MAIL TO MY SCHOOL BUT THEY ARE YET TO REPLY. I'M JUST WORRIED IF THE NAME ISSUE WILL BE A PROBLEM. DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING AT THIS POINT? GOING TO COLLECT THE CORRECTED CERTIFICATE IS NOT FEASIBLE COS OF THE DISTANCE. I'M JUST CONCERNED. PLS HELP.

Hi All, WES is really pushing my buttons here. What could be the reason for another verification to be sent again after taking more than 2 weeks to acknowledge the earlier ones sent (3 mails at 3 different times)... Now they updated my dashboard to "processing a new package/document" 2 days ago, only for them to update with "awaiting verification from your institution" again yesterday... Pls anyone who got past this stage could reach out cus i could really use a help/miracle right now.

Please anybody who has used WES for law school help me out ooo. Wes accepted wifey's verification from law school initially and today they accepted verification for LLB only for them to change initially accepted verification for BL to "awaiting verification " . I called them immediately and I was told it's a secondary verification. Is this how it's done? Help a brother
Good morning, please help out with the following questions.
1. How long did it take to get your transcript and verification from the law school?
2. Is there any means of fast track? Do you have any contact in that regard?
Thank you

Hello guys, I need your help/suggestion.

I opened my profile with WES using my maiden name because I thought that’s required since my credentials all carry my maiden name, however int. Passport carry my current name I.e Marital name and I recently started going through this thread and realized I should have used my current name so I decide to send my marraige cert, newspaper publication and affidavit to WES. But they responded that my assessment will be completed soon( they specified a date) hence no changes can be made.

Will this not constitute an issue while opening my EE Profile? I recently got my Ielts result which is in my current name.

Thank you

Also, when you get your ITA, you can add LOE to buttress your point. The LOE should state that you evaluated your credentials with your maiden name because that’s the name on your certificate. However, you’re married now and your name is now ............ and that you are submitting necessary documents(Marriage certificate, change of name affidavit and newspaper publication) to support this claims.

You will need to please help in more details required to get the certificate.
Details like study materials, can it be self studied, duration for learning (tutored or self studied), exam fees. Thanks.

You can get the study materials on opentuition. I used the text book&the podcast. I studied it myself because I couldn't wait for tutorial centres to take it step by step. The exam last as long as you want it to. I did all three papers in two weeks. It is a walk in exam, computer based and you get result immediately. The exam fee varies tho. Some centres change 35k while some charge 37k and some 40k. But you have to register with acca first&pay about £65 or £75 can't really remember anymore.

Hi,You only need to evaluate your Bachelor of law degree.it will give you equal points of a professional degree while the other combination will be evaluated as 2 degrees thereby giving you a lower score.

Don't let anyone misdirect you as you can only add a certificate UNLESS you have OND or BSC (which are at least 3 years programs), whereby, writing a certificate course without a 3/4 years program is wasteful venture.

Same here. I guess it was due to reported fraudulent activities, the verification was done twice in my own case

That's my bad for not reading to understand the exact context of the message but as we all know that ALL ON THIS PLATFORM SEEKING FOR ANOTHER CERTIFICATE NEED IT FOR TWO OR MORE CERTIFICATES in which SSCE does not fall in the category of two certificates.

Moreover, it would have been better on the onset giving more details needed when you gave the information than giving incomplete information that can lead others to an unnecessary venture which involves time and money.

I have already posted all the necessary information regarding the acca diploma. I believe his question was if the minimum requirement to taking the exam is ssce. He obviously can't be planning to evaluate ssce..it's too absurd to even consider hence my reply that yes he could do the exam even if he possessed ssce

PPR story- Battle with IELTS(ignore typos lipsrsealed)

Timeline
IELTS 7th attempt: LRWS – 8.5,7,7,7
ECA: WES BSC and ICAN AAT
Score: 465
ITA: 12th June 2018
AOR: 25th June 2019
MEP/BIL: 25 July 2019
Biometrics: 26th July 2019
GU: 21st February 2020
PPR: 22nd February 2020
COPR: 10th march 2020
VO: Ottawa
Single Applicant.

Decision to Travel
First heard about express entry in August 2016 from a colleague who was in the process. At that time, it looked too expensive to run and focused on getting a better job. No thanks to incompetent Buhari and his body odor I made up my mind to leave. Also, many of my colleague who left were getting jobs with the Canada office and other competitors of my Nigerian office.

ECA
A friend advised I use IQAS for assessment as it was faster than WES. So I registered in august 2017 paid and sent my transcript. Only to discover I registered for a wrong assessment, I called them on phone and was asked to register for right one and include a letter saying they should cancel the first application and apply the funds to the second one. A month later they mailed me saying I should reapply and pay as they were going to refund me. As at this time scores were rising, and I was getting scared. I then came across a post on here ( Nairaland) about ICAN AAT being evaluated favourable by WES . As soon as IQAS refunded me I abandoned them and switched to WES. As I was about to apply for another transcript NASU went on a 4 months strike, so I face ICAN AAT. ICAN refused to verify and told WES I was owing them hence they can’t confirm. But the funny thing was that before you can apply for ICAN Transcript you must have paid all dues. I sha sent them evidence and left them to God. NASU would later call off the strike March or April 2018 and my transcript was sent. ECA was completed late April 2018.
Big battle with IELTS (LRSW)
If anyone had told me I would struggle with IELTS I would not have believed Shebi its English. I did not prepare much as such. I paid for IELTS late 2017 but missed as I was sent to PH for a project.

First IELTS February 2018 with BC—8.5, 8,8,6.5 (remark took 3 months no change).
Second IELTS June 2018 – 6,8.5,8.6.5. I booked for another one with IDP lagos but due to work commitments I could not come back as to Lagos as planned. I requested for change of Venue to PH. MOD said no, so I paid for another one in PH center 2 days to the test date. They used a bad speaker (not headset o) for listening we all protested and filled the complaints form. The listening came out bad as expected, I sent them emails to threaten them with lawsuit. The Lagos office seemed to care less but the Australia office sounded worried and scared. So, they gave me a free test in Lagos.

Third IELTS August 2018 with BC – 7.5,8,7.5.6.5
While dragging with MOD IDP I had gone to pay for another BC. The listening and writing spoilt it again

Fourth IELTS August 2018 with MOD IDP (free)- 8,8,7.5, 6.5. applied for remark no change. At this point I gave up and forgot totally about Canada and stop visiting the naira land thread. To compound my woes I missed an Ontario PNP draw(400 and above for the chosen NOC) with my 415 crs scores as I did not open a profile because I thought it was too low. How can 0.5 difference be worth 50 points nitori olorun. 2018 was almost over with nothing to show na soso IELTS chai.

Fifth IELTS January 2019 with MOD IDP- 8.5,7,8,6.5
I used the services of a tutor. Still could not pass the writing. remark came back unchanged. I drove all the way from VI to Ogudu to pick it up only to see same score. I just went to a nearby eatery to chill and think about my life. Na me IELTS dey disgrace like this.

SIXTH IELTS march 2019 with BC – 7,7.5,7.5,6.5
I tried CBT next, maybe it was my chicken that was making me score 6.5. I has issues with the CBT listening (mouse keyboard typing and concentration was very hard).

FINAL IELTS April 2019 with MOD IDP 8.5, 7,7,7
At the point i was determined to get a real IELTS examiner to solve my debacle. I searched on linkedin and nairaland till I found one. He had worked for BC as an examiner for 4 years before he left. He reviewed my essays and told me the problem areas. (punctuations, spelling, grammar, subject verb agreement). We worked together for 3 weeks and he told me I was almost ready. i went behind his back to book a test with 3 days to go. I made sure I planned my time. I used 10 mins to review my work. Result came out around 5 am that day and I was elated. 679k ( 75+75+15+68+68+75+46+68+46+75+68) waka on top IELTS o . dived into the pool with 465.

ITA
With my battle with IELTS over ITA was too sure for me. It was a public holiday and I headed for my office so as to scan and gather documents, but CRS was 470 that day. I was like village people must be behind this. Ontario then sent me an NOI few days later which I ignored as I had no $1,500 CAD to give them. Finally got ITA on June 12.

POST ITA-I had gathered all most of the documents after I passed IELTS except for POF

Medicals – IOM

REFERENCE LETTER-submitted only reference letter from my current workplace.

POF- part gift deed, part savings and Pension. Submitted Mutual funds reference letter, PFA reference letter, gift deed (not notarized) and bank statement to show inflow of gift deed.

PCC- renewed a PCC I had done in faith sometime in 2018 with Insp Moshood.

DIGITAL PASSPORT- Initially used a phone app but I looked like a Cameroonian instead of a Canadian. Later went to studio 24.

AOR/MEP/BIL
June 25/July 25/July 26

POST AOR
I was confident the PPR would come fast so I could leave Nigeria in 2019 but by December no PPR. I had ordered for GCMS notes in October (Got a 3 months delay notice). I ordered for a CBSA note in December 2019. I called CIC severally the agents told me my file was on review required but they refused to tell me what area. I guessed it was the pensions part (10% of my total POF). Some people advised I send in an updated POF whole some warned me not to. I later sent the updated POF(converted my naira to USD and added more money) and replaced the pensions with cash. GCMS notes came in late January, as at request date was still in central intake office and I had a review required on STAT questions (Visa refusal in 2005 to UK) I was granted the Visa after addressing the issue noted and was granted. so, I began to wonder why it was an issue. CBSA note came in early February and revealed review required on proof of funds. Pensions was not considered by the officer, so I was short of POF by 900 CAD. I sent them a mail informing them I had addressed the POF issue. I was already paranoid at this point and was fearing rejection.

PPR
I got a ghost update and called IRCC . the agent told me application approved. The golden mail came in the next day. COPR approved 10th of March. The journey was a long hard one for me and am glad it ended well. See you all in Canny.
