Politics / Re: Cost Of Living In UK Compared To Nigeria (Photos) by iCode2: 2:08am On Jun 11
neyohh:


There are multiple people complaining about deliveroo, just eat etc on YouTube.

The stress, safety concerns and you buy your kit's , pay insurance etc. .. you're doing ok now because of the lock down and that's going to change when everything re opens .

You can't possibly get a mortgage as well.

Not the best route and saving only 300 pounds is terrible long term.

I save around 4k per month and im yet to become rich lol..

Join the professionals.. try software testing... 450 pounds per day.

Just an advice.. no harm intended.

Are you a software tester based in UK?

It's no easy, not even thinkable to change your codebase.
Imagine rewriting the whole software.

They may on the other hand, build new products and service platforms using newer technologies.

That's a tough one to be honest, because there are still a number of considerations for the newbie - Networking in particular is a challenge, especially when you have to calculate subnetting

It's also highly unlikely to be offered a pure AWS role in isolation. AWS like Azure can be likened to the evolution of virtualization, which in principle was always a 3rd line function anyway (I assume you know what I mean by this)

Either way there's a looot of studying and CV padding required to get a job managing AWS for most companies, only to be offered on average 50-60k in London.

If you're new to IT, I wouldn't recommend it, unless you're a geek.
What part of IT will you recommend for a newbie trying to break in?

Since you are a student then definitely student current account. Both are similar and free. The only difference if you are given over draft allowance then with student it is free and you don't pay interest but with the other Current Account Halifax will charge you interest when you use your overdraft
Oh okay. Thanks a lot.

Hi all,

Please what's the cheapest way to pay school fees from Nigeria? (I'm in the UK so unable to fill a form A). Can paga be used? I need a relatively cost effective exchange rate cos GTB milked me the last time.
Union Bank, Keystone and Wema are okay. You'll have to transfer the money to someone over here you can trust to do form A for you. Don't forget to include your student id number in the form A.

Thanks everyone for your help so far

So when I was requesting for my CAS from my school, they asked what Tls centre i will be using and i said VI. I am getting my CAS on monday but i can see that priority is unavailable in VI. Please can i go ahead with Ikeja? Will this pose a threat to my application? Or do i hope priority comes back before Monday?

Also, how does walk in work? Is it regardless of whatever date i get as biometric date, i can just walk in? Do i pay for walkin? If yes, how much? What time do i get do i get to the centre? Thank you in anticipation
I think someone did priority in VI yesterday. Check at night or very early in the morning.

Well, it might not be an issue switching to Ikeja sha.
