Corp Members to Receive N2 Million after Youth Service

Are you a corp member with a wonderful business idea? Or do you have a great business plan but don't know where to get the start-up capital for your business? Do you wish to be self-employed after graduating from the university? In one of my previous article here on, I discussed and list out some creative ways to make money as a college student while in school.

N2 million loan for nysc corp members

As a student, creative thinking and learning how to study hard in school makes you a better person in the society when you graduate from the university. We go to school to learn not only academics but creative ways to help us build our society into a better place.

Most university graduates have always nursed the idea of been self-employed even before graduating from school but don't seem to have the capital to start and manage their business. Now the Federal Government of Nigeria is planning to set up a programme that will turn the fortune around. This is good news to youth corp members who will be serving as from next year.

The Federal Government of Nigeria are currently discussing on the idea of supporting graduates who are through with their mandatory National Youths Service with a sum of N2 million start-up capital to start a business. This great idea was revealed by Emmanuel Attah a Coordinator of NYSC in Osun State at the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurial Development (SAED) held at the NYSC orientation camp situated in Ede, Osun State.

Attah said the loans will be given only to interested corp members who have undergone the SAED programme only and it would be in collaboration with Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria, the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bank of Industry whom will all be working together to make sure the loans are disbursed to each members accordingly.

Capital loans will be given out to interested corp members between N200,000 to N2,000,000 according to the weight of your business proposal. This will only be available after completion of their mandatory nysc programme. I think this is a welcome development to graduates who have a bright business plan but lack the capital to start their business.

According to Attah, no interest rate will be attached to the loan but all beneficiaries who apply for the loans will have to submit their NYSC discharged certificate to be used as collateral. The discharged certificate will be return to the applicants once the loan is been paid in full. There is no time limit for the return payment of the loan and no hidden charges as processing fee or any other fee attached. Once your nysc discharged certificate is submitted as collateral, you will only get it back when you have return your loan amount in full.

This development was organized by SAED a Federal Government programme to reduce the rate of unemployment and poverty among graduates who always end up roaming the streets looking for white-collar jobs that doesn't exist. This Skill acquisition programme seeks to empower interested corp members to be self-employed and employers of labour after their service year instead of depending on white collar jobs to be provided by the government.

So prospective corp members are hereby advised to start developing business plans and bringing up business ideas that will make them succeed in life and be self-depended before going through service. This will help reduce criminality and nuisance behavior in the community because they will find something useful to do with their life.

I hope this is a welcome development from our government once again. If this programme is effectively put in place and move smoothly, the youth will gradually be eliminated from poverty.

Do you know that there are lot of things you must consider before applying for scholarship to study abroad?

Especially when you apply to study in a country you haven't been before, there are questions you need to answers before you make up your mind going over there. In this article, we have listed 10 important questions you need to ask yourself and be satisfied with the answers before you go ahead to apply for the scholarship you wish for.

1. Where will i Live?

Before responding to a scholarship offer from a university abroad, it is very important to know where and how you will be accommodated. Accommodation is very important and you need to know how the school intend to accommodate her students on scholarship. Are they giving you an accommodation on or off campus? Or will they have to give you money for your accommodation. Asked these questions and make sure you are satisfied with the answer before you accept the scholarship opportunity.

2. How will I be Feed

How does the university intend to provide feeding for their intake? Feeding is one of the most important things to provide for students. The brain needs food to function properly. You need to ask and be assured on how the university offering scholarships wish to feed her students. Will they provide the food for students at the school dining by offering dinning tickets or provide feeding allowances instead? Make sure you read the university prospectus because most of this information will be provided inside.

3. What is the number of students enroll from my country?

It is also very important for students applying for scholarship abroad to know the percentage of students enrolled from their country. You will feel confident and comfortable in a school environment where some of the students are from your country.

4. What is the school environment like?

You need to also know the proportion of students enrolled from other countries. You also need to know if there are some extracurricular activities, clubs and societies which are provided to students from your country. Also consider the nature of transportation system whether it is expensive or cheap. How easy it is to use the public transport system to walk around the school or town on a low budget.

5. Are they Job opportunities on Campus?

Ask to know if there are any university job opportunities you can get to work while you are studying. A lot of universities abroad offer on-campus jobs to students which they do and earn extra money. Even if there are no university job opportunities in that particular university, it's still cool to apply for.

6. How much will be the cost of living? 

The cost of living also is very necessary to know about. How much you need to spend monthly during your stay studying your program is important to know. With that particular knowledge, you get to plan what to do next.

7. What is the Course structure?

You need to know the structure of the course you want to apply to study and how the course will be taught. Will the classes hold as lectures, or through online, or at seminars etc. will you be given the opportunity to interact with your lecturers and professors one on one or not? Will you be required to work individually or as a group? How many hours students will be required to spend in a week? Including other vital information concerning the course of study is also very important.

8. What is the job prospect of the course of study?

You need to know how demanding graduates from the course you are applying to study are needed at the labour market. A course with a good job prospect is worth every effort put to it. Weigh the job prospects of the course in the labour market before applying for the scholarship.

9. How have previous graduates in the course fare?

Students who have graduated from the university, how have they fared with their certificates? Do they do well or suddenly becomes flops after graduation. What organization or companies these alumni are working for? Will it be easy for you to work in these companies and organization following the same path after graduation? Do this meticulously and then decide.

10. Does the School have Reputation?

Graduating from a university with a poor reputation is never an option. Do a research on how reputable and respected the university is before applying for a scholarship to study there. Otherwise, you will end up with a defective certificate you won't be able to use anywhere even in Nigeria.

I hope you find this information vital and important. Please drop us a comment if you have any troubling question to ask.

over 300 scores in jamb

Here we will provide a practical solution to your problems and assist you on how to write and pass your jamb this time around. With our honest advice, you can even score above 300 and gain the admission you so desire.

How to Score 300 or above in your Jamb examination? 
Writing jamb and getting over 300 scores is not rocket science neither it is for only brilliant students but hard work, dedication and some tricks. If you understand how jamb set their questions, study the past jamb questions called Q&A, then you should be on the right track to success. Here Myschoolbam is going to give you the BAM! You need to prepare and score high in your jamb result.

As you prepare for your upcoming jamb examinations, consider these 13 tips to get the best jamb scores and gain university admission this time.

1. Consider reading your JAMB syllabus

When preparing for your jamb examination, after purchasing your jamb form, make sure you get the recommended jamb syllabus and study them properly. Jamb syllabus is very important because jamb set their questions from the syllabus. So consider it as a vital tool for passing your jamb. Follow the guide stated in the jamb syllabus and you will find it so easy to pass your jamb with flying colours.

2. Select the right Subject combination

You are required to write only 4 subjects in your UTME exams that correspond with the course you choose. The right subject combination is very important as regards the course you are seeking university admission for. If you choose the wrong subject combination, it will affect your admission status negatively.

3. Make a Reading Timetable

You should be aware that you are writing only 4 subjects in your jamb with Use of English as a compulsory subject. Create a timetable for the recommended subjects you are writing and start reading. Make sure you keep to your timetable judiciously, read and understand every bit of the topic from the syllabus.

4. Identify your weak subjects and improve on them

Identify the subjects you perform very poorly and improve on them. Read the topics you don't understand repeatedly until you get to understand them. When solving the jamb questions, concentrate on your weak subjects and improve on them.

5. Don't ignore your Strengths

Improving on the subjects you perform poorly doesn't mean you should ignore your strengths. I have heard some candidates complain about making poor grades from subjects they consider as their favorite. When you concentrate more on reading other subjects while neglecting your best subject because you think you know it well, you can end up like them. So don't ignore your strengths.

6. Read very well

Read every bit of the topic listed on the jamb syllabus and never skip any. Reading all the topics gives you a good confidence and a bright judgement to even guess the right answer at random. When you read very well, you develop a good reading habit and also prepare yourself for the post UTME examinations after your jamb result is out.

7. Consider recommended textbooks

Don't just decide to read any textbook you find in the library. Only read jamb recommended textbooks as stated in the jamb syllabus given to you when you bought the jamb form. Jamb uses the language of the recommended textbooks in setting their questions. Make sure you read the compulsory use of English text recommended to all jamb candidates.

8. Study past jamb questions

Try to get the past and current jamb questions and study them well. Study the language and tricks jamb use to set their questions and get accustom to it. Most jamb candidates fail their jamb because of fear of the unknown. When you get accustom with the jamb questions, you do away with fear.

9. Practice Jamb CBT

There are free jamb cbt also known as jamb computer-based test software around you can get it install on your smartphone or computer and practice. Jamb also gives you free jamb cbt software for practice after you purchase the jamb form.

10. Attend Extra-mural classes

Look for a good extra-mural or extra lessons class and attend to improve your reading habit and skills as you prepare for your jamb.

11. Organize study groups

You can organize a group of serious students within your class to form a quiz group and practice past jamb questions together.

12. Remember to set a goal

Setting a goal here means making a promise that you will get a particular range of scores in your jamb examination. You should start setting up goals right from the time you are studying your past Jamb question materials. If you set a target goal that you are going to get at least 75% on each subject you are writing in your jamb, then you should make not less than 300 in your jamb result.

Practice these with your jamb past questions and try to reach that goal. Make sure you don't stop until you reach your goal. By doing this, you develop a zeal and desire for success.

13. Keep tabs on Jamb latest news

Always keep yourself updated with the latest jamb news available from jamb portal. You don't have to miss out any vital information that will affect your exam preparation and admission status in future.
