|Nigeria Admission Dramas Vs Philippines Admission Stories (part 1) by Finditout: 5:12am On May 04, 2022|
Most of us who received our first degree in Nigeria will understand and relate to my tale better. I still ask myself, "Why will the school change the admission seekers' course choice without taking their life ambitions and dreams into account?" In my situation, I applied for computer science since I am fascinated by computer programming and language. As a young high school student, I had mastered a lot of programs and basic coding on my own, so pursuing a degree in computer science was not simply a snappy choice for me. I desired it!
To my surprise, I was awarded a provisional admission in agricultural science after convincingly completing the UTME and having a passing score in the post-UTME of my first-choice university. I would have flatly refused it and waited for another year of admission, but I wouldn't be certain of receiving my preferred degree in another year — after all, the same scenario may happen again. We are all aware that admission to federal universities in Nigeria is difficult to come by.
Take a look at me now. As a young lad with a strong interest in computer science, I am trying to find peace in my heart as a result of the Nigerian educational system imposing a path and a dream on me. Oh my goodness! Shouldn't I have altered my major after gaining admission? That was my parents' identical consoling and compelling comment when I was hesitant to pursue the admissions process. During the freshmen orientation week, crop science teachers also highlighted the prospects and opportunities for studying agricultural science. Don't misunderstand me. I'm not rejecting or dismissing the appeal and prestige of being a crop scientist. No way! is an excellent course that covers a wide range of fascinating plant-related topics. All I'm saying is that it should be studied by someone who is interested in it. And not as a result of a deliberate change of course by the school officials for the admission hopefuls. Changing, of course, was not as simple as my parents had imagined. I found out that it's also done by who knows who, much like the admissions procedure. Isn't that sad?
Is the admissions procedure in the Philippines as time-consuming and expensive as it is in the United States? The answer is a capital letter. "No." I graduated as a crop scientist, which was not my original topic of study, and I still wanted to continue my education – but not in Nigeria, I told myself. Another chapter of my life in which I was chasing admission resurfaced. I was concerned about where to attend that is relatively cheaper and of greater quality, such as universities and schools in Europe and America. I can choose between the Middle East, Europe-Asia, and Asia. After days of personal investigation and consultations, I decided on the Southeast Asian country of the Philippines. O, my good lord! At all stages of education, getting into a university of choice and a course of interest is not as difficult as it is in Nigeria. I was really taken aback when I discovered that federal and state schools were both cheaper and of higher quality than most of the schools back home. I was interested as to why the college admissions procedure in the Philippines is so much better and easier than in my native country. Then I discovered that the Philippines has over 1,500 colleges and universities spread around the country, as compared to Nigeria, which has less than 400 higher institutions. Are that sufficient grounds for the deliberate change of course and the difficulty in obtaining university admission back home? That's a topic for another time, in my opinion.
For the time being, I'm sick of writing my "crap." You can contact me directly if you want to learn more about university admission procedures in the Philippines.

Finditout:Anyway, your story seems as if you are only using logic to advitise yourself. I won't be surprised if submission with another miniker that follows your story belongs to you. However, your admission choice in Nigeria is because of your shallow mindset. You can force horse to the river, but you can't force it to drink water. It was because you were visionless then that made you to accept course of no interest to you.
If you knew what you wanted to study was computer science right from secondary school, you will stand your ground and offered to either change school to where you can acheive your dream or try the following year without succumming to pressure from your friends or self-pride. What did not work for you in terms of offer to study another course instead worked for many who had no initial direction or vision of what they want to become, but since you knew what you wanted, you should have stood your ground to do change of course to another school or changed back to computer science or rewrite jamb following year of your agric choice. School only suggested to you but never forced admission on you. Sorry that it didn't work for you, but actually worked for some others.
