Speaking at the exam centre in Lagos, Chief Executive Officer of Goodmus Learning Centre, Adekunle Badmus said the entrance exam was to help the students discover their field of study so that, they don’t end up doing courses they can’t cope with.
Badmus said that the exam was designed to assess the ability of students in order to discover the courses which they can fit in, in the university.
The CEO emphasised that nobody is expected to fail the exam as those who could not score high grades are considered in other areas, particularly in vocational studies.
“The unique thing about this exam is that, it is not to fail anybody. It is an assessment exam. Those who could not get high marks are given 2-year diploma courses while those who got high marks are placed for degree programs”, Badmus said.
He pointed out that the school is very much aware that it is not everybody that should go for degree programs in the University. The school, he said, has therefore, created a lot of vocational courses similar to degree programs so as to carry all candidates along.
According to him, the school has a target of empowering about one million African students, just as he informed that the school has already empowered over 500 students in the last 3 to 5 years.
