Five reasons why most of Tanzania students do not get admitted to Colleges/Universities
This post intend to give experience to why why most of students do not get admissions to colleges. Some students have been in trouble, without knowing the reasons.
On this post, I have analysed five most reasonable causes of missions the admissions. These are my experiences, no affiliation granted to this content. Now let us see on after another factor for missing admission
Lack of information
Many students do not have information on what to do during application process. There are many things a students should to before making any application. For example, knowing the courses offered by and institution. This result into applying to college because someone does. You should make an application to college that you have information about.
This has been a very chao among students. Especially those who freshly join the college, meaning those from form six class. There are wrong spreaded information among students about colleges/universities. Students ask themselves and get into discussion about higher education as they end up with mal-judgments. They influence themselves without knowledge. Many student apply to a college because he/she heard about it in the discussions or in the class. Many your own life from your our desire.
This is the criteria of which a college provide for applicants to meet. Now a days these cut-off points are provided by Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU). For example, if the cut-off point is 3 credits, make sure that before you make an application the credits are there. Do not take risk to risky-free attempt. This is also connected to point number one (lack of information).
Before making any application, make sure that you know the capacity of the college you are applying for. Some colleges allow applicants to know number of already applied applicants. When applying, make sure you communicate the system in case allows you know such statistics.
We have seen four reasons already, above all, the most important thing is a course.
This is very important case before making any selection. You meet the cut-off criteria, or even been able to be occupied by the college, but be sure you are right to the course. For example, if you want to apply for engineering programmes, there is no way your HKL 3 points (AAA) will help you to be admitted.
Like wise, how can you join accounting programmes with your HGK performance. Actually, in Tanzania you need to prepare your career at the beginning, as the education system prepeares you to be someone at the lower level.
Note: There are science related courses, business related courses and the like. Make sure you apply for the programe related to your combination.
Information is power, you can not know all of these stuffs if you are not informed before application.
