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

Image
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.

HOW TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF EARNING BIG IN THE FUTURE.

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.

"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.

The tick on the clock that announced 2018 saw to the beginning of new year resolutions by all and sundry. These are firm decisions to quit some things or abate the activities of some while kick starting some new developments. As we incorporate this to our personal lives, it is of importance for us to imbibe this in our national obligations as well.

   Without delving much in to rhetorics, it's not an understatement that Nigeria has suffered so much on the pinnacle of bad leadership and governance. The journey so far as a nation has been filled with regrets of giving the mantle of leadership to the wrong people. We've got a long list of 'trial and error'. It is owing to the failure to fulfil at least 50% of the juicy promises embedded in their manifestos. They come around in a glamorous convoy and with wads of Naira notes, making promises that never saw the light of the day.

    This is the year preceeding the  one we'll determine the successors of the present …
