    It’s great pleasure for the poverty raided African child to get better access to higher education which in most cases becomes a white elephant. Thanks so much MasterCard.


    Thanks for the opportunity to discuss with you on this platform,I would like to know if someone who sat for A-level in 2015 can be admitted in the University.
