Editor's note: It is no longer news that Nigerian university students have spent over seven months at home due to the coronavirus pandemic and the protracted strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
In this interview with Legit.ng, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Erudite Millennium Ltd, Oladele Saheed, explains why the admission seekers should take Cambridge A' Level instead of wasting a year at home.
Why did you advise the admission seekers to take Cambridge A' Level?
The reason is simple. Cambridge A' Level certificate never expires. It can be used anytime unlike certificates of other foreign exams. An excellent Cambridge A' Level result is not only usable for admission anywhere in the world but also attracts international scholarships
The Cambridge A' Level exam preparation does not only equip students with critical thinking skills but also eases them into the rigour of university education.

Participating in Cambridge A' Level for the next six months will give students the rare opportunity to regain their lost time during the COVID-19 pandemic and the Academic Staff Union of Universities ongoing strike action as they will be able to secure admission to 200 level directly in any Nigerian university of their choice.
What advice do you have for the parents of the admission seekers as the recent meeting between the federal government and the ASUU failed to yield a positive result?
Taking Cambridge A' Level class is the best decision parents can take for their children now because Nigerian universities have outstanding admissions which will cause many students to spend up to a year at home after ASUU finally calls off the ongoing strike.
The Erudite Millennium Ltd's 2021 May/June Cambridge A' level programme which starts on November 23, 2020, and will give students an opportunity to fill the gap before resumption and move straight to 200 level.
An excellent Cambridge A' Level result is not only accepted for admission anywhere in the world but also attracts international scholarships and that Cambridge A' Level exam preparation does not only equip students with critical thinking skills but also eases them into the rigour of university education.
Students only require their WAEC or NECO results for the Cambridge A' Level programme and unlike other foreign exam certificates, Cambridge A' Level result does not expire.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that ASUU accused the government of planning to use hunger as a weapon to weaken its agitation and demands.
It was reported that the Ibadan zonal coordinator of the union, Prof. Ade Adejumo, made this known on Wednesday, November 4, during a press conference to give an update on the strike action.
