    I want to be sure if an shs graduate can fit into that school,,this is because i am done with my shs level and i pass all my subjects and i dont want to go to university anymore so i want to know if i can come to such without asking questions about university certificates

    1. Theophiles Ferguson

      No. The very least, you should be an SHS graduate with good passes. Good passes because the schools want their money so I won’t be a big deal for them to admit you, but later when you’re looking for an airline to work for that would be very necessary
