Travel / Re: Uk Student Visa/tier 4 Pbs - Your Questions Answered Part 6 by tolajay: 5:52pm On Nov 28
Thanks.

I used someone's USD debit card but it wasn't successful.

Hence, the outlook for an alternative.

Why not open a dom account, request for dollar card and buy FX from black market to facilitate the payment??

Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Is Your Salary Enough In This Economy?, Get In Here Let's Discuss by tolajay: 4:13pm On Nov 04
The world has changed. Education and work would no longer be the same forever.

Nigerians are not only competing for limited local resources but also global limitations. But it's better to go global than stay local.

Way forward: train your mind. Shun excuses, discipline yourself. Acquire skills and play global.

If you want to earn more and live about the Nigerian realities, then, think and act global.

We're in a new era; traditional schooling and working systems are obsolete. The industrial age is inefficient. Tech and the quest for skills is disrupting our present and future.

As it stands, Nigeria is in a race to its bottom. No developmental agenda, poor human capital, weak systems and institutions and more importantly, an army of "anyhow" citizens.

One can live above these traps by being conscious and clear about oneself, developing capacity, character and consistency.

Errrm...Make I chop, I dey come.

Okay.

Doing it on a laptop is better.

Honestly, i wasn't redirected to MindHub. Everything was done on PearsonVue's website.

After selecting the exam, I got to the part that says choose a test centre, where I inputed home address after which the closest centres to my address will popped up.

Then i proceeded to the payment page.

Best wishes.

quivah:

Im certain I didn't miss a step but i will go back and check..maybe on laptop.

I'm trying to pay for CBTexams. I'm trying to pay for the voucher on mindhub and on mindhub, I haven't seen where to chose the local testing company.. the stage I am right now requires I pay for the voucher...yet I'm asked to input a company's name but I am lost.
I will starg the process again...maybe I made an error somewhere.

I think you've missed a step.

You're suppose to choose a local testing company.

MindHub requires a voucher, which i presume you don't have.

I really can't vividly remember the process again but you need to choose an exam centre that is close to you here in Nigeria. then you'll see their contact details.

Wait sef, is it NMC UK verification/registration you want to pay for OR CBT exams?

quivah:

Yeah, I got here via mindhub. But what I am confused on is the company box. I don't know what I should out there.

From my research, the test isn't totally different from the previous one, just a little addition.

You can check this out:

Hey!

Not sure how you got to this page but confirm that you got here from PearsonVue's website.

If that's the case, then use the same details on the billing card as the shipping info.

Yes, you can use a U.S. card for payment or call the centre directly so you can pay in Naira and they'll book you.

Hope that helps.

quivah:
Hi guys. Please I am trying to book my cbt exam but I am stuck here.
What company name am I required to put?
My place of work?

Sorry if it sounds stupid, but the payment isn't refundable so I'm just trying to be careful plus no answer came up on Google regarding this question. Please, help.
Secondly, can I use another person's credit card(USA) to make payment?

Greetings Elders.

Is there anyone here living or working in Dorset?

I just got a employment offer but my estimation of the cost of living and accommodation seem quite high.

Would like to have first hand experiences, compared to the generic reviews online.

If you have or currently live/work in Dorset, kindly share your experience on working as a Nurse about to start a family.

Thank you.

Politics / Flashback: The Morning After Nigeria's Independence by tolajay: 9:36am On Oct 02
Opening poser:

Why did Nigeria's freedom fighters demanded independence in 1960?

What was their vision for the country?

Is this the Nigeria they fought to relinquish its control from British?

--

Freedom is sweet but it comes at a prize and with utter responsibilities.

1 October 1960 heralded joy and jubilation for the amalgamated North and South protectorate of the Niger area - Nigeria became independent from its colonial handlers, Britain.

It's been 61 years down the road of self-governance and internal-control, but is Nigeria better off on this track compared to the growth trajectory of the pre and neo-colonial phase?

Can you imagine the mood and mode of Nigerians on 2 October 1960, the morning after the independence announcement?

I did a reversed mental journey to capture the mood and mode of Nigerians on the said date, and all I see is the widespread scenery of pomp, celebration and ceremonies to bask in the euphoria of emancipation. Only a few Nigerians thought about the real task of nation building and the future.

There was little or no thought, vision, plan, documentation on how to develop the country. Most key actors were engrossed with the quest for power, prosperity and public influence, neglecting the country's future to fate and divinity.

The result of their short term thinking and festive mentality is here with us. For over six decades, successive governments have failed to deliver value. Citizens' trust is low, civic engagement and spaces shrink. The country continues to go down the road to nowhere. Why? Because the foundation was/is faulty.

From the on-set, values and ethics have no place in our personal and national lives. The ills and dynfunctionality we see in Nigeria today, didn't start today but decades back, perhaps prior to independence, but 1 October 1960 presented the opportunity to rebuild better but we missed it and we are all a victim of that pivotal miss.

While the 1960 error is already established with apparent negative impact, this is the time for us (YOU and ME) to rethink and redirect our personal, family, communal and national lives towards building not just a good NOW but a better FUTURE. What we do or don't will count for and against us in the nearest future, especially, on generations to come.

We need to understand that our little actions count. We need to do the right things even when we feel like doing otherwise. We need to think of the impact of our actions and inactions on our neighbour and more importantly, the next generation.

Ask yourself, are you laying a solid foundation and building right for the future? Would you be happy to expereince the Nigeria you're building or contributing now, if you could live forever?

Let's not be overwhelmed or distracted by the moment. Let's live with the future insight.

Think About The Future!
Business / Re: Come And Learn New Tricks That Cashed Me Over $400 On Fiverr In 5weeks. FREE!! by tolajay: 1:05pm On Oct 01
Hello,

Are you still offering the website traffic service?

homebase:
Follow this pictorial guide to set up Azure. https:///O5ut2Z ( nairaland is disabling the link, i have attached it below this message )

I followed the guide when i was first setting up mine, even the second one i set up
because i had forgotten some steps.

PS:

1. Before you begin at step 1 make sure you already open hotmail or outlook email account

2. When you get to step 5 to select VM site, only select the first package ( 1 Core with 3.5GB Ram ). The one
with $104.16. I think their free offer only covers that package but at end they will give $200 for 30 days.

3. The details of your Debit card must march the one with the bank

4. Location, i always select WE ( West Europe )

5. Follow the guide to step 6 and stop there.

PPS:

I just remember this, if you are having error or difficulty on one browser change to another
one it happens to me when i was opening my second Azure.


Politics / Re: Banks In South-East Comply With IPOB Directive, Bring Down Nigerian Flags by tolajay: 10:10pm On Sep 30
IPOB is over playing itself.

They've no sustained agenda for self-actualisation.

Independence offered on a platter of blood can't be productive.

Has IPOB ever held a consultation with lawmakers and federal government officials from the East?

High-level consultations with crystal clear mandate will be more effective as against this streetwise approach.

In the meantime, my deepest sympathy to all Easteners.

Would appreciate your responses.


This the little trick I used for my wife's application and it worked. I search the hospital or Carehome she is interested in, get their HR or managers email address through their website. Then send a sweet cold email to them with Personal Supporting information, cv, IELTS, CBT and screen shots of NMC portal.
