Just a few hours after I saw this and had a good laugh, because that's what this is, right? A simple silly joke..., I moved passed it only to be met with this other picture below a few hours later.
According to Linda Ikeji, "Twitter user @tosinslim reveals the kind of test questions allegedly asked at Babcock university. Probably for entrance exams. Peep question 14...lol."
Although it's very uncertain what kind of test questions these are, I couldn't help but wonder about the conception that the exams in private universities are pretty watered down.
Then I remembered how so many people who couldn't make it in my university, especially in law and medicine, went to private universities and graduated top of their classes.
A number of people who failed out of medicine made the move to Igbinedion and they graduated top of their class. An acquaintance of mine who slipped from a 3rd class to a pass and was slipping even further down decided to run away from UNN and went straight to Igbins. She graduated with a 2.1. And she wasn't the only one!
Another chic failed out of medicine, made the move to Med-rehab, still failed at that and then moved away to Igbinedion. She graduated from Igbinedion as the 'highest graduating student' of her set, as they call it. This isn't to suggest that it's Igbinedion alone that we noticed this trend, Babcock and Covenant weren't exempt.
I've also always wondered how private universities are able to produce so many graduates with 1st Class certificates from one set alone...
Are we to believe that the lecturers and facilities in private universities are so darn good that they turn the academically challenged to first class students OR are private universities just playgrounds where everything is made easy?
What say you?
