The International English Language Testing System, IELTS exam, a compulsory evaluation taken by foreigners willing to study or get jobs Abroad, is no longer a setback for people that have attempted it multiple times and failed.
Canada recently set the standards low by scrapping the test for Nigerian Students hoping to study in their country.
After a series of deliberations, the House of Commons, Canada, inaugurated a list of persons that formed a Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration, CIMM, to make things easier for students from other parts of the world, including Nigerian citizens.
The document they finally arrived at contains recommendations and new resolves for people from other climes.
The report is titled “DIFFERENTIAL TREATMENT IN RECRUITMENT AND ACCEPTANCE RATES OF FOREIGN STUDENTS IN QUEBEC AND IN THE REST OF CANADA.”
The document had the name Salma Zahid, with the title Chairman and CIMM COMMITTEE REPORT at the top of the cover page for those that do not know what it looks like at the first glance.
Here are some recommendations from the House of Commons regarding changes implemented to create a higher opportunity for prospective study enthusiasts from Nigeria.
- Removal of IELTS exam for Nigerians applying for study permit.
- Harmonised financial requirements of $10,000
- Automatic 3rd party audit of visa offices with high refusal rates.
- Increase in the number of Canadian visa offices in Africa.
The few resolutions above were hinted on Twitter by @HumanSquadCA.
