@FMasseme

Why do you guys look down on UPSA, I had an aggregate 6 in 2020 and I'm currently studying Accounting and finance at UPSA.

@enionyam

I think that's not what it means.. maybe they're trying to say anything more than C6.. meaning those with D7, E8 and F9 in any of their courses will not be admitted.

@Kwame_UTD

Your school will be empty then. No aggregate 6 student is coming to UPSA. They’ll not come
@jerderm
Then 6 students p3 be dat oooo On a more serious note, this wont be fair on other students and also the school’s in so many diverse ways
