JAMB To Announce 2012/2013 Official Admission Cut-Off Marks on May 21st

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has re-emphasized her readiness to make the official cut-off marks of various monotechnics and polytechnics nationwide.

Speaking on the issue on Thursday in Abuja, the JAMB boss, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, revealed that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has set May 21st date she will openly broadcast the admission cut-off marks for universities, polytechnics and colleges of educations.

He also hoped that a harmonized cut-off point would kick start admission process for 2012/2013 across the nations institutions of learning.


Generally speaking, there is a perennial problem of inadequate admission spaces for “prospective undergraduates” in Nigeria. According to analysis, between 1.3 and 1.6 million candidates reportedly sit for JAMB/UTME exercise every year. (This number is increasing geometrically every year). Of this number, a given university (one as big as the University of Nigeria) receives an average of 80, 000 applications (both 1st and 2nd choice) for admission. Out of this number, as few as 5000 or 8000 candidates gain the admission at the end of the day.

Breaking News; FUTO in shambles as buildings Submerges in Flood. Many injured as Python attacks students.

It was really hell for Nigerian Students in Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) as a heavy rainfall that lasted over three hours left FUTO in a shadow of itself as several buildings were submerged and damaged in the rainfall.
The rain began by 4 pm today (12th of April) and lasted till 7 pm. The heavy rain completely raised down the Old building of the NFCS FUTO chapter as several students were seriously wounded and taken to the schools medical center. This was because the NFCS building has been a reading venue for most students. The new building of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Chaplaincy was also affected as some of the roof went out.
As if that was not enough virtually all electric poles and trees around the school vicinity fell down blocking roads and damaging buildings.
As a Student journalist and a blogger I rushed to the school’s medical center to ascertain the number and degree of casualties, there we were attacked by a very big Python as we struggled to overpower it and kill it.
Indeed it was an experience all Futoite will not pray to have again. Check out pictures of the Damages and the snake.

Feedburner Email Branding: Set Your Post Title to Show to Subscribers Instead of Blog Title

When it comes to email delivery, Feedburner does it very well. One of the professional ways of delivering feeds, posts or updates to subscribers is by setting the post title to show as the email subject instead of blog title. This method when implemented helps to gain the attention of subscribers each time they sign in to their email account. It also helps to retain their subscription as some subscribers tend to unsubscribe when they keep seeing one particular name like your blog title.
By showing your feed or post title you tell them that you have made a new post different from the one they received last. However, this will make much sense if your post or feed titles are hot and eye catchy!
In this post, I will be showing you with a screen-shot a step by step guide on how to set or brand your feedburner email delivery to show feed or post title instead of the old fashion way of showing blog title. Ok lets hit the point!

Click on your Feed Title and then follow the rest of the steps in the screen-shot below:

The code in step 4  =>  ${latestItemTitle}-NaijaTechBlog, will display your post title and then your Blog title (Remember to change "NaijaTechBlog" to your own Blog title or name)
If you write more than one article or post in a day, then the code in step 5 =>  ${latestItemTitle} plus ${m} more-NaijaTechBlog will be of good to you. However, add the both codes just as they are, you may need to make multiple posts one day.
This post is straight just make sure you follow the steps in the screen-shot and your email branding settings will be done. The only change you will need to make is replacing my Blog Name "NaijaTechBlog" with your own.
When you are done, click on the "Activate Service" button; if you have already activated the service before, then click the "Save" button below the form. That's all.
When next you make a post, your subscribers will receive it in the format

Have You Heard Of Google Glass Project?

I was surfing the net and I came across this article. It is really interesting so I thought  it will be pertinent putting it up here for you guys to read.

If you think texting while walking is dangerous, just wait until everyone starts wearing Google's futuristic, Internet-connected glasses.

Directions to your destination appear literally before your eyes. You can talk to friends over video chat, take a photo or even buy a few things online as you walk around.

These glasses can do anything a smartphone or tablet computer does now —and then some.

Google gave a glimpse of "Project Glass" in a video and blog post this week. Still in an early prototype stage, the glasses open up endless possibilities — as well as challenges to safety, privacy and fashion sensibility.

The prototypes have a sleek wrap-around look and appear nothing like clunky 3-D glasses. But if Google isn't careful, they could be dismissed as a kind of Bluetooth earpiece of the future, a fashion faux-pas where bulky looks outweigh marginal utility.

In development for a couple of years, the project is the brainchild of Google X, the online search-leader's secret facility that spawned the self-driving car and could one day let people ride elevators into space.

If it takes off, it could bring reality another step closer to science fiction, where the line between human and machine blurs.

"My son is 4 years old and this is going to be his generation's reality," said Guy Bailey, who works as a social media supervisor for Kennesaw State University outside Atlanta. He expects it might even be followed by body implants, so that in 10 years or so you'll be able to get such a "heads-up" display inside your head.

At its best, the goal is to make your life easier by putting the tools now at your fingertips in front of your eyes.

"There is a lot of data about the world that would be great if more people had access to as they are walking down the street," said Jason Tester, research director at the nonprofit Institute For the Future in Palo Alto, California.


It is no longer news that the JAMB exam has come and gone and not without its 'casualties'. It's now time for candidates to prepare to cross the last hurdle before vthey get admitted to the institution(s) of their choice. Now reseach has shown that many people who do well in the JAMB examination fumble during the POST UTME. Many others due to lack of information have lost out. That is why we at NAIJAEDUTECH have decided to make sure that this year's admission never passes you by. You just need to plan yourself very well. Get ready for the exam by making sure you are assured of quality and timely information concerning your school of choice. Make sure you have the past question and answers for the institution you applied for.

Our concern is to see you matriculate this year. We are always ready to here from you on any problem you have.  Call me on 08138543144. You can also like my page on Facebook and Twitter.
