Hello Bro,

I'll like to apply for the app fee waiver. Please could you explain how to go about it?

Thanks
I am sorry I could not reply on time, I have had a lot to do in the last few days. I hope you could apply, if not opportunities still abound.However sending a mail will be more effective in reaching out to a potential contact on this forum as the person may not logging for a long time. I wish you and everyone with expectations on this forum the very best.

No it wont. Tell the person to use western union quick pay. He/she can do that at Walmart or any western union outlet and it takes about 3days to reflect.
He has used mail already

Admissions are tough these days.
Congrats on your Renssaeler Poly Admit, that's a big one... I think you should reach out immediately to the program coordinator and ask.
Even reaching out to Faculty can also be helpful.
In reaching out, put a phone call across and leave voicemail when they don't answer. Then support it with email. This can go vice versa.

How many more are you waiting on?
Thanks, still waiting for three more decisions

Congratulations on the RPI admit. I hope the funding package follows soon.

I think this info is false if it is for this opening, because if it is the case dragnet would have sent regret mails to the unsuccessful candidates. It interval hardly exceeds 3days. I may be wrong tho and a counter proof will help settle things.
Sir, I tell you with all (100%) certainty that invitations for assessment center have already been sent out since wednesday

Congratulations to everyone invited and to eveyone not invited congratulations also ,you have been invited to explore maybe better options and please do not despair, keep pushing we will get there. I have to say that based on the testimonies on this thread and the best of my knowledge I don't know the criteria that was used in the selection process. Also, I was part and still remain among those who opposed the posting of the then current online test on this thread. However for future purposes let us try to refrain from doing the wrong things in the name of trying to be our brothers keeper,if you want to really help you can emulate the last member who shared past questions he bought, that's really commendable and ethical. However as Gaddafithe2nd put it let's move forward and meet at Lagos and write the test.I Can't wait to see you guys at JKK, Lagos.

With Regards,
The good Herdsman cool cool

HI, I applied for the Seplat graduate scheme in November. I forgot about it because I heard you had to have someone with a Seplat IDsend in your application. However I got a text from dragnet with a username and password to take an online test. They also directed me to check my email. I haven't seen any email from them yet. Should I proceed and take the test? Please this is urgent
Dear Ma,
I discovered that the text contains the link to the test .I render my unreserved apologies for my previous statement. Please take the test and I wish you the best, Godspeed.

Guy the time allocated for numerical reasoning is usually higher because of calculation.Those people you are talking about there question where numerical reasoning.logical reasoning requires lesser time since its all about reading.
Boss,
Thanks for the enumeration. That explains the disparity in duration of the test. Mine was vebal although I would have preferred numerical reasoning (I have sentimental attachment to maths).Thanks once again.

Don't be too wise.. He already knew what you typed befr you typed it.. So reminding him that it's a competition wouldn't stop him from getting it... It's your type that would form I too know and get nothing in return
Dear bro,
What is right is good (as I type this I haven't written) whether people know or not. Please this is a TEST for crying out loud why don't we respect that. I never meant don't share PAST QUESTIONS, GENERAL HINTS i.e no of questions, type of questions, duration e.t.c (even students ask lecturers these), if not that's selfishness and wickedness on my part.
The main crux of the matter is please do not share the actual questions, whether you think it will or will not come out today.
I don't know much (so I can't form I2know cry) and even if I don't get the job NONE OF US WON'T GET NOTHING IN RETURN, there are many opportunities in life. May God bless you and I wish everyone and me writing today the very best.

With Regards,

This nigga talking about competition, you are just joking and very greedy to the core. if we on nairaland dwell on the competition mindset you wouldn't have gotten past question to practice.This exam you are just killing yourself about you might log in tomorrow and see an entirely different question.
Dear Brother,
I am yet to know how I can be classified as greedy. Please there is what is called HEALTHY COMPETITION and sharing past questions is not bad (we all used it in school).But you don't expect a lecturer to share his current exam questions with his present students, its not done.Furthermore we can only speculate that dragnet may or may not repeat the questions
As far as the available spaces at seplat can not go round its undeniably competitive .Sharing past questions, general info on the test is not bad, but its part of a HEALTHY COMPETITION.
I know my stance is unpopular but I will take the risk to stand by it.Our leaders are not solely responsible for the rot in our society, we too have a hand
However may God bless you and I wish you the best, whether I get the job or not
