BLAST 2018 WAEC, NECO AND JAMB AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE. HURRY NOW!

E-TOP PROFESSIONAL TUTORS LTD, RC 1238795 has  hereby successfully strategized for candidates and students against 2018/2019 Admission Year.






We have highlighted this strategy based on our wide experience in educational related activities. We discover that many students still fail SSCE of WAEC and NECO despite exorbitant school fess they pay for first to third terms of their Senior Secondary School 2 and 3. Hope you could remember how much you paid ? N200,000 to N300,000 right ?
Many resolve to General Certificate Examination(GCE) or re-enrol as external students wasting another precious time and financial resources.

Even when they narrowly make the O'Level after uncertain number of attempts, many still face another challenge of JAMB UTME which equally poses awaiting headache on their future tertiary education. Must this continue ?

Obviously, No!  ETOP has come up with achievable strategy to relieve the students and parents of the ugly scenario.

With our strategic methodology, stu…

A C.E.O once asked, in a gathering of young students; How much would you loved to be paid when you start working? This question was embraced with lots of responses. Some concede with 700k, while some decides not to be too greedy, went for 500k and 300k . The C.E.O, though, not too astonished by their responses; triggered another question from it " since the company is willing to offer that much, what are you willing to offer in return? To his surprise, the noisy atmosphere was buried, and a graveyard silence took over. They, as a matter of fact, couldn't move an inche and buried their hands in the broken cup of their palms.

 It's a matter of exigency that you Should ask yourself, is the company going to pay you because you have a B.SC , M.SC or because you decided to go to school? Will they choose to pay you thousands of naira and you can't make a single naira for them? This is a simple logic we should examine day by day.

      Recently, the management of Obafemi Awolowo University, ile-ife, announced the commencement of her Rain semester examination on the 29th of January while the students are currently writing tests. However, OAU KILONSHELE  confirmed that the school's library, Hezekiah Oluwasanmi Library, has been on lock. Also, there has been power outage in academic areas, comprising of lecture theatres, where students read.

    With a view to gathering students' opinions, Dosunmu Ayodeji, a part three student told our correspondent in an interview, that it is disheartening that students were asked to resume rigour filled weeks in darkness.

"We should have stayed back if there isn't full agreement between the school management and the Non Teaching staff."

   Dosunmu furthered by highlighting the financial implications on students as photocopying is being done at high rates because there is no light in the academic area.
