Barring a last minute change in plan, five pupils of Ireti Grammar School, Falomo, Lagos State, involved in the attempted rape of two female pupils from Falomo Senior High School, will be arraigned in court today (Thursday).

It was learnt that while one of the suspects, whom the police said was above 18 years, would be prosecuted in an open court, the four others would be tried in a family court.

One Michale Matthew had posted on social media how the two pupils were molested by their fellow male pupils upon the completion of their final exams. Two of the perpetrators were identified simply as George and Abiodun.

Matthew described how the pupils chased the girls in the Obalende area, tearing up the skirt of one of the victims with a pair of scissors. Two boys had attempted to rape the girls to the cheers of other boys before the eyewitness raised the alarm.




The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, said on Wednesday that the command, together with the state Ministry of Justice, had concluded arrangement to prosecute the suspects on Thursday (today). He, however, did not disclose the charges preferred against them.

The CP said,

“The police have interacted with the five suspects, one of the victims and the eyewitness. The incident raises questions of criminality and morality, which have been considered and examined by the stakeholders. An offense has been committed and the suspects will be taken to court to serve as a deterrent to others. 
“We are putting all our files together with the Ministry of Justice and appropriate charges will be taken to court not later than Thursday (today) with the suspects. Issues of the ages of the pupils also came to play. 
“Four of them will be taken to juvenile or family court, but one of them, who does not fall into the category of children, will be arraigned in an open court.”
The CP also said the Divisional Police Officer, Ijesha Police Division, CSP Mohammed Yakubu, had been detained for allegedly shooting an apprentice tailor, Jamiu Ayoade, to death.
The Management of the University Of Lagos wishes to inform all Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) applicants of the institution that the admission cut-off points for the 2017/2018 academic session have not been released.



All Candidates are therefore advised to Kindly disregard any publications made online pertaining any cut off points.

The institution will not hesitate to notify the public once the admission cutofff points its out via their official social media platforms and website.

Thank you.

Whose Children are these? School children kissing other in pairs 





Are you an aspirant of Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife? And you are wondering how the aggregate score is been calculated? Well it very simple. The aim of this post is just to save the stress of replying to so many people that chose the university. See how to calculate it below

HOW TO CALCULATE AOU AGGREGATE SCORE FOR ADMISSION

There has been much controversy before now, as to how the O’level results will come into play in the screening of candidates for 2017 admission into Obafemi Awolowo University. As reported by OAU Peeps News Agency, the school portal was activated on Friday, signalling the commencement of the admission screening exercise. Following this development, here is what we now know.
For UTME (JAMB) Candidates
1. Both the UTME score and your O’level results’ grades are computed to assess you.
2. For the screening, UTME result weighs 70% of your total score and the remaining 30% from your O’level results.
3. Your best 8 subjects are computed; With A1 = 8, B2 = 7, B3 = 6, C4 = 5, C5 = 4, C6 = 3, and so on.
4. Maximum points from your best 8 O’level subjects is 64 ( A1 = 8 X 8 subjects).
5. Your O’level points is then converted to 30% (Assuming y is your O’level points, then, it will now be calculated thus: y/64 X 30).
6. For your UTME points, it will be calculated thus: Your UTME score/400 X 70.
7. Your final merged score, which will be used for admission now = UTME points (maximum of 70) + O’ level points (maximum of 30) = 100.
8. You will be allowed to select two courses during the screening registration.
9. OAU charged a huge total of N6,850 for the screening.



For Direct Entry(DE) Candidates
1. Only your O’level results’ grades will be computed to assess you. (According to the data available to us, there is no preference of Distinction candidates to Upper Credit candidates.)
2. For the screening, UTME result weighs 0% while your O’level results weigh 100%
3. Your best 8 subjects are computed; With A1 = 8, B2 = 7, B3 = 6, C4 = 5, C5 = 4, C6 = 3, and so on.
4. Maximum points from your best 8 O’level subjects is 64 ( A1 = 8 X 8 subjects).
5. Your O’level points is then converted to 100% (Assuming y is your O’level points, then, it will now be calculated thus: y/64 X 100).
6. Your final merged score, which will be used for admission now = UTME points (0%) + O’ level points (maximum of 100%) = 100.
7. You will be allowed to select two courses during the screening registration
8. OAU charges a huge total of N6,850 for the screening.

Many JAMB Candidates who wrote the 2017 UTME have been asking us for JAMB Statistics for this year.

The JAMB UTME Statistics provides vital information that could help candidates strategically select schools or courses with lower application of candidates, thereby giving them a greater opportunity of gaining admission.

Some other JAMB statistical data gave the number of candidates who scored a benchmark score (150, 180 or 200 and above) and also applied in specific schools or courses.

Unfortunately, this data is no longer available this year. The JAMB UTME Statistical Data was removed after JAMB redesigned and reorganized its website portal.

We're hoping this data will be made available by JAMB after the cut-offs are released, to help candidates better prepare for admission screening.



We will continue to monitor the portal and other relevant official information channels, and we will bring this to you whenever it is made available.

What statistics were you hoping to get? Or what is your view on this? Let us know using the comment section.
The JAMB Registrar, Prof Oloyede has disclosed that the results of candidates identified in footage of Close Circuit Television (CCTV) to have indulge in unwholesome practices during the just concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will not be released.

The JAMB Registrar made this known during an interview on Channels Television.

According to him, the board has been busy reviewing the recorded footages of the exam across the country and a number of candidates will be punished.

“Those who have not received their results are qualified not to receive for now. In all cases where there were no problems, we released results of the examination within 24 hours. “But those who have not received their results, they may not be culpable but we are investigating



Where we have reason to doubt anything or where we have report of anything that is not acceptable to us, we have withheld the results. “And we will keep on releasing them as we clear them. For instance, this morning, we released another 15,000 results. But among those who sat in that centre, we have reasons, concrete evidence to say about 300 of them, their results will not be released because we know they were not in the hall where the examination took place."

“We are comparing those who sat for the examination, how long they sat in the hall, and how some of them took excuses that they were going to the toilet only to go to what they called VIP. “All this we are now able to track. And we want to say that we will not hesitate to sanction anybody no matter how highly placed.” He stated.
Permit me to give kudos to all 2017 Jambites in here. I want to believe we all worked hard, went on sleepless night and relentless reading just to get the best out of the exam.

Whether you had a good mark or not, one prevailing fact remains that there is a zeal in you not to remain the way you are. There is a passion for moving ahead, an hunger for a new level and that was why you counted it worthy to opt-in for the exam.

Coming out with a low jamb score is not a guarantee or an affirmation that you won't be admitted this year. The issue is how informed you are.

Maybe you have noticed that Myschool has given an assumed cutoff mark for some schools and if you take a critical look, most of them will work in your favour.

Take off the retarding mindset that you can not go to a polytechnic. Are they for animals?

Some years ago when I got admission in to the polytechnic, some of my friends where like, awon omo poly.

My dear, I knew what I wanted and I pursued it, by the time I was done with my two years, some of my friends where still at home and I didn't stop, I went for my degree.



Now Bsc and Nd is standing. Your two years can not be a waste. Nail pride and what people will say and pursue something instead of cry about a low mark. Crying doesn't solve issues, it complicates it.

To all those who scored high in the exam I say weldone but never relent in getting updated.

Maybe I should hint you on this, I have a boy who scored 246 in the just concluded exam which you will agree with me is a meaningful score and on the high side but may I let you know that by the time we checked the cutoff mark for his course in the school he picked, he was not just up to it.

So the point is, pause the jubilation and ask the following critical question?

» What is my schools cutoff mark ?

» What is the cutoff for my course ?

» Do I need a change of course/institution?

Many student get disappointed even with their high jamb score. Its not that the school is wicked but because the student was overwhelmed by the score he/she had.

May I also point out this that it is possible to secure admission into a school you did not pick in jamb, many of us don't know this. 

There are schools that brings out supplementary admission that your 180 will enter. I would have dwelt on this but that will be latter in this post.

Next is the fact that you all need to go get the screening procedures of your schools. I have a number of them but let me say for FUOYE.

Taking last year for example, some of them where invited and asked so questions in form of an interview. This might sound easy or look cheap but may I let you know that a wrong response can cost you a year.

In the area of change of institution, please care must be taken. If it will require you to take a brochure, please do. Select a course that won't conflict you jamb subject combination and 0'level result.

For institutions, patience is required also. Ask if those of you who chose one university can now choose two so as to increase your chances.

PROPOSED JAMB MODEL FOR SCREENING OF RECOMMENDED CANDIDATES

1. Screening of candidates shall be for ONLY candidates recommended for admissions.

2. No written examination to be conducted.

3. Verification of Course Requirements (O’ levels or A’ levels).

4. Verification of valid JAMB results by checking:
i. Online Result Slip
ii. Printout
iii. Photo Album
v. Checklist
vi. Biometrics

5. Institutions are free to source from other Course(s) to compensate for SHORTFALL in any of the criteria.

Admission might seem like its going to be hard this year but you need not to be afraid, just do what you need to do and be sure that your admission will be certain.

Also do not forget to put all things in the hands of God. You should know by now that Gods favour can break every existing protocol irrespective of who made it.
The management of the University of Ibadan (UI) on Monday ordered students of the institution to vacate the campus latest by 6pm following the outbreak of protests in the school.

According to UI’s Director of Communications and Publication, Olatunji Oladejo, the closure became necessary so as to avert a crisis after students of the premier university had earlier staged a protest on the streets of Ibadan lamenting what they tagged the insensitive disposition of the university management to their security and welfare.



A student congress held on Saturday had passed a resolution that steps be taken to disrupt the forthcoming examinations if students were not provided with identity cards and allowed to use cooking appliances within the halls of residence.

Oladejo in a statement issued Monday afternoon however denied the allegation and stated that the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof Idowu Olayinka had convened an emergency meeting of the university Senate to review the circumstances surrounding the development.

Oladejo said;
“The University of Ibadan in its wisdom has decided to shift the examination earlier scheduled for June to July, 2017, ” 
The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig-Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, on Monday revealed that the scheme would soon begin posting of corps members to farms.

Kazaure, who said this in an interview with newsmen during his official visit to the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Sagamu, Ogun, said that the move to deploy corps members in farms was in line with the agricultural development programme of the NYSC.

According to him, the NYSC has concluded preparations to begin the posting at the conclusion of the three-week orientation exercise.

He said that Bauchi, Oyo, Kebbi and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, had been earmarked for the pilot phase.
Kazaure said;
“It should interest you to know that the NYSC will soon begin its agricultural development scheme where corps members will be posted to farms for their primary assignments.
“Already the NYSC has acquired active farmlands across the nation’s geopolitical zones with four already fully operational in Kwali, Bauchi, Oyo and Kebbi. 
“After this orientation program for the Batch ‘A’ corps members, we will begin posting some of them to these farms as a pilot phase.
“Though we are starting with four states for now, we will integrate the other states as time goes, the project is ongoing,” 
The NYSC boss had tasked the corps members not to seek white-collar jobs which were non-existent but rather develop their potentials for entrepreneurship excellence.

He said the corps members could begin their journey toward financial independence by tapping into and maximising the benefits of the NYSCs Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) Programme.



“The NYSC has provided all the tools and support you need to develop your capacity to the fullest, it now depends on you, there is no short cut to success but by hard work. 
“Of all the programmes outlined for you during the orientation, there is none more important that you must fully participate in than the SAED programme. 
“I want you to create your own jobs by being creative and innovative, you must strive to be labour employers rather than labour seekers. 
“Please don’t look for white-collar jobs, your skills and potentials can serve you better in the way of realizing your dreams,” he said.
Kazaure said that the SAED programme was made possible by partnership with public and private sector organisations to build entrepreneurial capacity.

The gunmen who took six pupils of Igbonla Model College, Epe, Lagos State, have slapped a  N1 billion ransom on their head for their release.
According to PUNCH, some parent of the kidnapped pupils said they were contacted on Saturday, allowed to briefly speak to their children, and told to get the ransom for their release.
The Punch reports that two of the parents were asked to pay N400million each, and another two were asked to raise N100 million per child.
Soon after they were taken from their school, the kidnappers had profiled the children initially abducted before choosing the six they finally went away with due to limited space in their boat.
The kidnappers then advised parent who could not raise the money to meet the School authorities and the Lagos state government to help raise the money



Some parents of the abducted schoolchildren said the kidnappers called between 3pm and 5pm on Saturday.

One parent said;
“They allowed me to speak with my son. I asked him if he was fine and he said yes. They asked me to meet with the school authorities to raise N400m for my child to be released.
Another parent said;
“I said N400m was much, but one of them told me not to worry myself. He said I should meet with the school authorities and the government. I was also allowed to speak with my child. I spoke with two other parents and they said they were asked to pay N100m each,”
When contacted on the telephone, the school Vice Principal, Academic, who did not disclose his name, said,
“I’m sorry. I cannot volunteer information for you. I’m not permitted to speak to you. Thank you.”
Police and soldiers posted to the school, on Wednesday night, repelled an attack but the gunmen returned at dawn after the security operatives had left. They made for the boys’ hostel after breaking the school fence and abducted the students.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, told the Punch that the police had yet to be informed about the ransoms, adding that investigations were ongoing.
Some students of the University of Calabar have allegedly been shot by Nigerian soldiers during a protest.
It has been revealed that several students of the University of Calabar and one student of the Cross River University of Science and Technology, CRUTECH, were yesterday allegedly shot by soldiers in Calabar during a protest over the 13 million Naira largesse released by Governor Ayade for mobilization of students and youths for the Cross River @50 events. According to snappygist.com, trouble started after the students accused the state Commissioner of Youths and Sports, Mr. Asu Okang, who the money was given to of holding back the money and refusing to disburse it for the various unions after they had brought their members.
It was also gathered that a former Governor of Akwa Ibom State and Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio who was a guest at one of the events, also announced a donation of 5million Naira to the students of UNICAL, his alma mata where he was once a former SUG Senate President.
While the Commissioner is yet to clarify his role in the fiasco, the students however accuse him of ordering soldiers to fire live rounds at the protesters.




One of the student leaders who spoke under anonymity said the students suspected that the Youths Commissioner wanted to abscond with the money.
“He called us and announced to us that each union will get one million while others will get 500k. He just announced but did not give us the cash and after the event, comrades became uneasy and we decided to protest and barricade the road at Transcorp hotel.
“It was in the course of our protest that the soldiers shot live bullets and wounded three persons under the directive of the Commissioner of Youths and Sports, Asu Okang.”
The SUG President of UNICAL, Anthony Afufu who confirmed that three students were shot, said he could not say for sure whether it was the Commissioner that ordered the shooting.

“Yes, soldiers shot three students during our protest at Transcorp junction. Two from my school and one from CRUTECH. They are all receiving treatment now at UCTH. I am even here with one of them at the moment.” He said.
Below are pictures of the wounded students and from the protest:

Prof, Ishaq Oloyede The Joint Admission Matriculation Board Boss has made known to the public that the board would not impose any candidate on any institutions in the country.

According to him, the board will not take any candidate that has not been recommended by the institution.

“The final say for admission rest squarely with the institutions. Their senates and academic boards are empowered to determine the students. What JAMB does is and what it should continue to do is to moderate, to ensure equity, to ensure that nobody is unfairly treated



“JAMB should not and will not take any student that has not been recommended by the institution. JAMB was not established to take up the responsibility or to usurp the power of the senate. What JAMB should do is to moderate, take recommendation and ask questions.

“JAMB will give the admission letter but the process of giving the letter must be democratic enough, must not encroach on the powers of the senate and the academic boards of the various institutions.
“We will advise our colleagues who are manning these institutions to be fair and to play according to the rule but we will not impose anything on the institutions,” he said.
It is one thing to read a book and another to remember everything you read. A lot of motivation is lost when you read a book only to find out that you cannot recall what you read even at the shortest period of time. It is a common event among many students and this has led to the conclusion, “If I read, I’ll forget because I have low retentive memory” . This statement is however not true! Yes, no one has low retentive memory.
While some forget everything they read, others can recall it easily. Have you ever wondered why this happens? A lot of students who fail examinations have reported they do read but forget everything they read which is why I have decided to write this article. Trust me, if you can follow this article to the end and put the guidelines into action, your retentive power will surely increase.
1. READ TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND
Your mindset when reading speaks on whether you will remember or forget what you are reading. A question you should ask is, “What should my mindset be while reading? “.
The answer to this question is the key to unlock your hidden power of remembrance. Your aim of reading should be to gain knowledge. You may want to ask, “Am I not aiming to gain knowledge while reading? Of course you are!. But, you are gaining knowledge only to pass examination!
Many reader who are yet to discover their hidden power of remembrance have the mindset of reading in order to pass their examination which makes them to cram rather than understand the content of the book. As a result, they forget everything they read immediately after the examination which has led to a common saying among students when you ask them questions, “I was taught last term/session, I have forgotten”.
“Therefore, change your mindset while reading. Read to gain knowledge, make sure you understand the concept of what you are reading and don’t just read to pass an examination”
2. DO NOT SKIP A SENTENCE
Students regard some of the information in a book as “story” and decide to skip them. This is common especially when reading for examination. Before you can understand and remember what you read, just have to read enough. The secret is, “The more you read, the more you understand and the more you remember” . You cannot read four sentences and expect to know five. So, neglect the belief of regarding some of the content of a book as story because
there are hidden secrets in every sentence!



3. WRITE IT DOWN
Research has proven that writing down what you are reading helps you to remember more. After reading for several minutes, try to write down everything you have read without looking at it(Writing it in your own word is allowed). This will help you to know the part you don’t understand, so you can go over it again. This is a very effective method which I have been using for quite a long time and I am sure it will work for you!.
4. EXPLAIN IT TO YOURSELF
If you have been forgetting what you read, it is because you either crammed it or you did not understand. After reading for a while, try to explain to yourself, it will help you to know if you really understand the concept of what you are reading.
5. TAKE A BREAK
Readings for 10hours without taking a break does not make you a bookworm but I’ll rather call it a waste of time. Yes, a waste of time!. Your brain is a biological organ and not a machine, it also gets tired. Effective reading habit should be cultivated as it is more yielding. When I say effective reading, after reading for 1-2hours, you tend to lose concentration when your brain gets stressed. Don’t force yourself to continue reading but just take reading but just take a 10-30minutes break depending on you until you feel relaxed and good to go again. After the break, try to recall everything you have read before the break, then you can proceed with your reading.
6. USE MNEMONICS AND SONGS
Mnemonic is a technique used to remember what you read very quickly and accurately. This is especially used to remember listed items. You can easily remember the activity series of metals by using the mnemonic- “King Nelson Can Make A Zoo For Some…” where the letters in Capital form represent the symbol for the metal which are “K-Potassium, N-Sodium, Ca-Calcium, M-Magnessium, A-Aluminium, Z-Zinc, F-Iron, S-Tin…” It is very easy to know the mnemonic than knowing how to list the metals using their names.
Music is also efficient method. You’ll agree with me that most of the rhymes your we’re taught still sticks to your brain because of the use of music. If you were not taught like that, you’ll have forgotten everything.
