Do you mean your undergraduate school uses 4 point scale? If so, that may explain the shooting increment you got.

Polytechnics use 4.0

Her mouth Is bad ehn
She also wrote my chances of getting a scholarship off. But thankfully, I got two and expecting two more.

I don't know her problem oooo. She said she schooled in the US yet she discourages people. It is well.
She said I didn't have a chance but now I not only have my i20,I also have my Visa

Some many times on this thread we have advised HND holders to go and evaluate heir transcript so that they can use it to apply to schools and the transcript will be on US 4.0 scale and that's exactly what she did.

After evaluation the transcript is now on US scale and schools won't know if it's HND result transcript at all unless the evaluating agency state it on the evaluated transcript, it will help by using it to apply to schools in US and Canada if possible


They state it as HND but at the end of the evaluation they state that ND is equivalent to 2 yrs US undergraduate study then HND is equivalent to 4 yrs US undergraduate study then convert your grade to US standard. I think since it's converted to US standard,it helped my case. They made my transcript look better than the one i sent sha.D was converted to c+, something like that sha.

I hope I was helpful.

Guys please lets help Pelaiye2703 out. Have communicated with him via mail but he needs more clarification and more help. He has an HND degree with the above listed GPA and wants to find out if he can be accepted for a Masters degree with the HND degree. Can he be able to find schools that will accept HND and also accept that GPA? Please lets guide him. He is one of us.
cc: lagosismyhome, oludare01, sureb0y, sirriddy, imperiouxx, zeezahbee and the gurus in the house.



He should send his transcript to WES for evaluation. I graduated from a polytechnic too but came out with 3.14 on a scale of 4.00. When we evaluated the transcript it increased to 3.32 on a scale of 4.00
If he is interested he can apply to Black Hills state university, South Dakota. That the school that gave me admission for masters with my HND, when others refused to offer me admission,I got my visa last week,so I will be resuming with them by 22nd of August. I wish him luck. He can contact me if he needs more information.

Try applying for an expedite appointment, that's what I did when I was first rejected . Got my date moved from 18th to 4th of August.
Goodluck with ur application.

I know I am very lucky. It's the grace of God not by what I answered and the guy was in a very good mood we were just smiling and laughing like college friends at a point he stuttered and apologized and I told him no problem that he should take his time.
It's just God all the way. Got my visa a week after rejection couldn't have been my doing.
Thanks a lot

Calfavor




Am sorry I called her that, but I didn't call her wicked cos of my case cos I know I was very scared and the anxiety showed.
All am saying is that she didn't give pple chance to talk or express themselves. She reject too many pple in my presence there and she behaved as if she disliked them.
