    1. Last year's result is out, but it wasn't made public. They only sent award letters to the awardees, and sad to say not all who were awarded know of it, mainly because some didn't receive their award letters that were sent to schools due to differing academic calendars, and some due to this strike. I'm one of them, and I only knew because the person in charge called me. Go to ur sch and ask if there are any award letters that came in while the strike was on.

  19. @Olsey Consult, Nigerians computer literacy level is too low. I advise you tell them (PC) tell them to use a Computer in an Internet Cafe to fill out the form online. For those asking if it is only indigenes from Imo, Rivers,and Akwa Ibom that can Apply, read the guideline very well. There is provision for indigenes outside those states and they are recognized under National Merit Award (NM)
    Reply. But I have a question myself. I saw "O’ Level Result(s); and ‘A’ Level /OND /NCE Result(s) as applicable". Do you mean 'O’ Level Result(s); "AND" ‘A’ Level /OND /NCE Result(s) or 'O’ Level Result(s); "OR" ‘A’ Level /OND /NCE Result(s)?

    1. I think the information is clear enough. Regardless of the discrepancy the "AND" or "OR" is saliently creating. We understand its an "OR"
      Thats how its also written on SHELL's official page
      Thank you guys at Olsey consult.
