Stop the Nigerian Law School Bad Grading System Now!

This petition had 1,793 supporters

Over the years, the Nigerian Law School (NLS) has been known for awarding candidates their lowest grade as their final grade, despite making other excellent grades. For instance, a student at the NLS who makes four (4) A Grades and one (1) C is likely to end up with a Pass, the A Grades, notwithstanding. One struggles to see how such arbitrary and flawed NLS Grading System can be justified in the name of 'old time practice,' given how retrogressive it is.

In an ideal academic community, one would have expected that the cumulative average of the student would be used in arriving at the final grade. The abilities of a student should not be judged purely and solely on the basis of one subject that the student did relatively poor in, while the other outstanding grades the student made in other subjects are ignored.

It is for the foregoing reasons that I ask that you join me in signing the Petition for the Campaign: #LawSchoolBadGradingMustStop!

I ask that you join me as we collectively speak against this grave injustice and put an end to a system that is unreflective of one’s true abilities.
