There is hope for fresh secondary school leavers who just made their papers in the 2023 West African Examinations Council (WAEC)'s West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in Nigeria and want to study in the United States of America (USA).
Five things you need to study in the US
1. English Language Proficiency - you would likely need to take an English language proficiency test, such as the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or the IELTS (International English Language Testing System).
2. Standardised Tests – are meant to assess the academic skills of the applicants and are commonly required for undergraduate admissions. Standardised tests include the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) and ACT (American College Testing).
