We appreciate your feedback and complaints received after the Aptitude Test, they will in no doubt ensure we continue to improve the effectiveness of our scholarship application, vetting and disbursement processes.
As part of the College Relief Fund Scholarship Program’s commitment to a transparent, free and fair selection process, we have reviewed all complaints received regarding the just-concluded Aptitude Test.
It was concluded that all candidates who got a zero score should rewrite the test. We believe such low scores might have been a legitimate browser or network-related issue.
A link to retake the test will be available on the dashboard all through TUESDAY, 22ND NOVEMBER 2022 for eligible candidates.
The above was the only blanket decision.
All other applicant’s complaints were handled on an individual basis after thorough checks on the logs of the test portal which included:
- Questions answers;
- Categories attempted/not attempted;
- Times candidate left the test portal;
- Screen-off breaks;
- Click targeting;
- Ambient sound; and,
- Attention to instructions
Candidates who had marks deducted due to malpractice were not considered for further review beyond verification of the malpractice algorithm.
Candidates who skipped entire categories were also not considered for further review beyond verification of such actions.
A few candidates’ complaints were found to be legitimate and have been reviewed in accordance with our test committee’s recommendations.
In the same vein, we have also allowed retakes for a few serious complaints that we have assessed and deemed in need of a retake.
Reviewed Test Scores will be available on Wednesday, the 23rd of November 2022.
It is essential however to state that for this Batch, there is no guaranteed cut-off mark for the test. However, the test scores will still play a role in the final selection. This is to say, we are taking a need-based-first approach in scholarship disbursement and will continue beyond the current batch disbursement with the monthly Mini-Scholarship-Lists.
VISIT YOUR DASHBOARD to check if you are eligible for a Test Retake or other resolutions available to you.
We appreciate all those who took out time to provide feedback and complaints and those who also offered admiration for the effectiveness of the testing portal.
