 There were three (3) criteria or stages used to allocate sponsorship to the students selected to these institutions and programs, these were:

1. Number of Students Selected to Program

The first criterion was the number of students selected to the identified program. If the number of students selected was less or equal to the sponsorship slots allocated, then all students become eligible for sponsorship.

2. Request for sponsorship

The second criterion was applicant’s indication or application to be sponsored. This and other criteria were considered only if the number of selected students was greater than the available slots. If an applicant indicated during application that he/she needed sponsorship, he/she was considered eligible. If the number of applicants who had indicated the same were less or equal to the available slots, then all applicants were selected for sponsorship.

3. Performance

The third criterion was performance. Performance was considered when the number of available slots for a programme was less than the number of applicants selected to that programme. This was also considered when the number of applicants who had applied for sponsorship were more than the available slots. Performance was considered in the order of an applicant’s pass in

  • Science subjects (Biology, Chemistry, Physics).

  • Other subjects(English and Mathematics).

  • Division Points.

If a deadlock occurred on performance then other factors namely: O-level graduation year, application date and gender (In the stated order).
