The education system in Nigeria is something that has made the news on different occasions but not always for good reasons.
Just recently, a man identified as Mik on Instagram took to the site to share his young brother’s plight after he was denied admission to study at the University of Lagos (Unilag).
According to Mik, his brother exceeded all the scores required of him and he was still denied admission because WAEC refused to release his Physics score on time.
Read Mik’s caption explaining his brother’s plight below:
"My brother got 306 in UTME and 22/30 in his Post UTME.. 7A1,1B2 and 1C4 in his waec. He wasn't given admission in UNILAG because his physics waec result was outstanding when the admission started, the physics result came out 2 days later and he scored A1.
His aggregate was higher than the cut off mark for the course he applied for and yet nothing has been done and that was waec fault.
The director of Jamb asked the registrar to write to UNILAG to consider him for his admission considering the fact his waec result came out later and his aggregate passed the cut-off. We have still not heard from them and three admissions is almost coming to an end.
The pictures there are all his documents to prove that!!! His first choice of institution is UNILAG!"
Mik also shared photos of his brother’s WAEC and JAMB results. See his post below:
