Are you a newly admitted student of the University of calabar?
- What have you heard about Unical GSS Programme?
- Do you know that you can’t graduate from our prestigious institution without passing this programme courses?
- Do you know that GSS class is always slated for 7am in the morning?
Well, some of the fresher’s are nervous to know what this GSS is all about , some are eager to know the meaning of GSS, some said, the brother/Sister/Cousin who is in unical told him/her that one cannot pass any GSS course until you pay a token some of money, some said the programme is a scam, infact as I speak majority has been made to belief that going for GSS class is a scam.
Unical Gss is just like admission, if you prepare adequately well by reading your books, buy textbooks when others are buying it helps, do assignment when others are doing is for your own good, through reviewing of chapters you will be exposed to so many things, discover new words, ideas etc.
you can pass the exams without paying money, just like those who merit admission with high average on like some of you that had low average, the way u are looking on who to help you bribe your way in, is the same way you will be looking on who to sort the courses for you when you didn’t prepared for the exams.
Some fresher’s believe that no matter how one tries , no matter the amount of preparation one can’t pass unical GSS examination , but all this rumours isn’t through, there are many serious faced students that have passed Gss without paying any money
