I Am Worried My O'level Isn't Good Enough For My Cv by Auxtan(m): 10:25am On May 15
Ever since I entered the university and now in my 400L currently doing my 6 months I.T in preparation for my final year (500L) I haven't gone through my qualifications intently until this morning.

Here is a problem I discovered, I made my way to the university with a 2 sittings 2014 O'level certificates in WAEC and NECO because I made a D7 in English in WAEC which is a compulsory credit subject required for admission I had to use my NECO result where I made C5 in English to back it up for a 2 sittings result though I recall they ended up using only my NECO for the O'level certificate screening that time.

Now I am concerned if this might be a problem when I graduate and decide applying for a top job. My CGPA currently is quite impressive but right now I am afraid my O'level might not be good enough due to the D7 I made in English in WAEC.

Please I need good words of advice from the experienced ones amongst us here.
Thank you

relax yourself. The most important thing is that you credited english at o levels whether u got it in WAEC or NECO is not important. Besides, all your credits are in not more than 2 settings . besides when u apply for jobs, u can present both, but they will not ask about the particular one u used to screen in university. All they are after is your first degree result

Thank you sir. By being mainly after my first degree I guess the O'level isn't as important as I am making it a thing to worry about right?

have you not heard a president use NEPA bill as result.
On a serious note, start investing into the digital world before you graduate, so you can even become an employer instead of carrying CVs looking for a job after graduating. Goodluck

Most employers only look at your first degree and NYSC discharge certificate. But some ask for olevel especially when they need to verify age. In fact, I've experienced those that insist on primary school cert.

Having two sittings is okay but for the sake of unforeseen circumstances, you can go ahead and register for WAEC private January or December exam and have your result in one sitting.

No ever put your O'Levels for CV except you win presidential award, or do something record breaking with am. Nobody go University without O'Levels and UTME so, no ever bother employers with your O'Levels.

Some employers are particular about o level. Why not do another WAEC

For job applications, your o Level results won't be playing a big role. In fact, most recruiters will not request for it. They are more keen on your work experience and maybe your class of degree.. I mean first class, 2.1, 2.2, 3rd class etc

Stop bothering yourself about what you can't change.

Truth is most private firms require Waec at one sitting and don't even recognize NECO no matter how good the result it.

Just focus on graduating with a good CGPA and you will be fine whichever way as there will always be a job out there for you.

Is that a problem?

You should be thinking of how to learn a good and handy skill that can fetch you money instead of bothering yourself with trivial issues. School na scam for this country
Las las na 30k job you go still go hustle for

I believe if only 9ja was developed, Degree should be an evidence that you credited your O'level.
