486 Exam Magic Centres to be Shut Down in Anambra State

No fewer than 486 centres of examination magic in Anambra State are to be shut down as part of measures to curb examination malpractices in the education sector, the Commissioner for Education, Professor Kate Omenugha, has said.

Speaking at the 10th anniversary of St. Joseph’s Academic Award for 2014, the commissioner observed that the miracle centres had been aiding and abating examination malpractices, especially during West African School Certificate Examinations, WASC, and National Examination Council, NECO, examinations.

According to her, the decision to shut down the magic centres became necessary due to the manner their operators have fashioned them to swindle unsuspecting, desperate candidates.

She said: “We have govern-ment and approved private schools that are saddled with the responsibility of training our children to become functional members of our society.”

50 University of Namibia Students Stranded at Hostels

Namibian students numbering over 50 were stranded at the University of Namibia after their loans which are administered by the Namibian Students Financial Assistance Fund could not cover for their hostel and accomodation fees.

Speaking to The Namibian yesterday, Unam spokesperson John Haufiku confirmed this, saying communication between the Fund and the students should improve, so that awareness is created and parents arrange to assist with the payments.

Four of the students, who spoke on condition of anonymity yesterday, said they came from the holidays and were to register last week Friday but to their surprise they were told they must first settle half of what they owe the university before they could be issued keys to their rooms.

According to them, this was a shocking revelation as they had been uninformed about the turn of events, which saw most students having to squat in their friends’ rooms while some slept in the hostel corridors.

A second-year law student said her loan in the first year amounted to about N$30 000 but she found that this year, it had been reduced to approximately N$20 000.

She said she lives on a farm outside Windhoek and her mother had to arrange accommodation with a friend where she says she is uncomfortable.

“I was told to pay N$8 000 before I could get my keys. Where will I get that money? This is why I got a loan in the first place,” she said.

She further pointed out that she had tried to negotiate with the hostel staff, so she can pay in installments but all attempts were in vain.

Another student said the whole situation is unrealistic as most students had no means to get money at such short notice, “A friend of mine was talking of getting a cash loan, which is even worse.”

Similarly, a second-year science student said he had managed to get some assistance from his uncle and has now moved into the hostel.

“It is bad, because most of them are from the north. Yesterday, there were some students who slept in the corridor. I walked by because there was nothing I could do to help,” he said.

Haufiku said the students, who started registration last week Friday, should know that there is usually a difference they should settle when the loan cannot cover the hostel fees.

“The university would usually take the tuition fee from the loan money and the difference goes to the hostel. Sometimes it is not enough and students’ parents should chip in to assist,” said Haufiku.

Tips For Writing A Research Term Paper

Here are lists some of the stages involved in writing a research paper.
Although this list suggests that there is a simple, linear process to writing such a paper, the actual process of writing a research paper is often a messy and recursive one, so please use this outline as a flexible guide.

  1. Discovering, Narrowing, and Focusing a Researchable Topic
  2. Finding, Selecting, and Reading Sources
  3. Grouping, Sequencing, and Documenting Information
  4. Writing an Outline and a Prospectus for Yourself
  5. Writing the Introduction
  6. Writing the Body
  7. Writing the Conclusion
  8. Revising the Final Draft

Discovering, Narrowing, and Focusing a Researchable Topic:

  • Try to find a topic that truly interests you
  • Try writing your way to a topic
  • Talk with your course instructor and classmates about your topic
  • Pose your topic as a question to be answered or a problem to be solved


Finding, Selecting, and Reading Sources
You will need to look at the following types of sources:

  • library catalog, periodical indexes, bibliographies, suggestions from your instructor
  • primary vs. secondary sources
  • journals, books, other documents


Grouping, Sequencing, and Documenting Information
The following systems will help keep you organized:

  • a system for noting sources on bibliography cards
  • a system for organizing material according to its relative importance
  • a system for taking notes


Writing an Outline and a Prospectus for Yourself
Consider the following questions:

  • What is the topic?
  • Why is it significant?
  • What background material is relevant?
  • What is my thesis or purpose statement?
  • What organizational plan will best support my purpose?


Writing the Introduction
In the introduction you will need to do the following things:

  • present relevant background or contextual material
  • define terms or concepts when necessary
  • explain the focus of the paper and your specific purpose
  • reveal your plan of organization


Writing the Body

  • Use your outline and prospectus as flexible guides
  • Build your essay around points you want to make (i.e., don’t let your sources organize your paper)
  • Integrate your sources into your discussion
  • Summarize, analyze, explain, and evaluate published work rather than merely reporting it
  • Move up and down the “ladder of abstraction” from generalization to varying levels of detail back to generalization


Writing the Conclusion

  • If the argument or point of your paper is complex, you may need to summarize the argument for your reader.
  • If prior to your conclusion you have not yet explained the significance of your findings or if you are proceeding inductively, use the end of your paper to add your points up, to explain their significance.
  • Move from a detailed to a general level of consideration that returns the topic to the context provided by the introduction.
  • Perhaps suggest what about this topic needs further research.


Revising the Final Draft

  • Check overall organization: logical flow of introduction, coherence and depth of discussion in body, effectiveness of conclusion.
  • Paragraph level concerns: topic sentences, sequence of ideas within paragraphs, use of details to support generalizations, summary sentences where necessary, use of transitions within and between paragraphs.
  • Sentence level concerns: sentence structure, word choices, punctuation, spelling.
  • Documentation: consistent use of one system, citation of all material not considered common knowledge, appropriate use of endnotes or footnotes, accuracy of list of works cited.

Steps to Writing a Research Paper

Writing a research paper can be a challenge. Not only do you have to come up with shockingly clever ideas, you also have to figure out what the so-called experts think, and learn to format your paper correctly. When you finish, you’ll be surprised at what you’ve learned. But, start early; it may take more time than you realize.

  • Decide on a topic. If it hasn’t been assigned to you, try to think of something original. Choosing something that actually interests you will make the process a lot less painful. Also, make sure that you will be able to find books and articles about your topic.
  • Find all of the information that you can about your topic. Check the book and article database at the library, search the internet, and check out encyclopedias and other reference books.
  • Skim through your materials to find the good stuff. Unless you have a few years to kill, you’re not going to want to read everything. Instead, put a bookmark on all the important pages and write down any quotes you want to use in your paper.
  • Write your thesis statement. This is one sentence that gives the main point of the entire paper. Make sure that it says something meaningful about the topic that can be proven.
  • Write your paper. Every paragraph should prove your thesis statement. Now is the time to use that time-consuming research. Put quotes in whenever they prove your point and make sure to cite your sources.
  • Format and proofread your essay. Check with your teacher to find out what format your paper should be in (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.) and consult a guide to learn the specifics of that format. Be sure that you have all required elements including a works cited page, bibliography, or footnotes. Before turning it in, check that paper over at least three times.


  • Stick to the topic of your paper.
  • Reading your paper out loud or having a friend check it can help you find easy to miss mistakes.


  • Watch out for poor quality references. Most teachers frown upon quotes from thrown-together personal websites (complete with corny music and mouse trailers) used as scholarly references.
  • Don’t plagiarize. Failing to cite their sources or purposefully using someone else’s material has gotten many a student kicked out of school.
