  1. I have paid since Wednesday but no reply till today, pls what can I do

  2. Please I have registered and pay the required fee to the account they provided through transfer but I was asked to provide evidence of payment which I screenshot the debit from my phone and posted it but I haven’t received any messages through email and how will I be able to upload the needed credentials when the only thing I keep seeing is the application process and nothing else. How can we make a direct complain to PDF?

  3. How do I upload my credentials, I can’t find a link for it

  4. I applied was given a deadly for payment. I failed to pay and the extended my deadline thrice. on each occasion I failed to pay. Finally I paid yesterday. Waiting for the link to upload credentials.

  5. I think at this stage, the organization giving scholarship should not be asking people for their bank details and asking them to pay money. It’s wrong. For now it should be free.

  6. WHY I THINK THIS IS A SCAM
    I applied, was accepted and while am supposed to wait for an email to detail the exam date and other related things, I was asked to pay one thousand naira on or before Tuesday, 21st of October or missed out.
    .The email will come in 48hours time. I registered on Monday, 20th of October but by the late hours of said Tuesday, 21st, the email has not come.
    .To catch up with the deadline for the payment, I revisited the registration process but no provided path to access my file which probably may available only after the payment.
    .To reach the page for the payment option, you have to start at the beginning because the process was formatted sequentially and not randomly.
    .So, I repeated the whole process and got to the payment option page, where I was again notified of my registration success.
    .But there was not payment platform on the payment option page; only that for confirmation after payment was available.
    .I paid the one thousand naira through ussd and by time I got the printable transaction Teller to upload as proof of payment, I cannot access the site again.

    • 48 hours is 2 days and not one day ur mail is to be ready 22nd which is wednesday and not 21st of tuesday.
      its seem you have done multiple reg. which is not in line with PDF terms and condition.

      • I think SCHOOLNEWSNG you should just be plain to apologize to these affected persons that you posted an unverified scholarship scheme that has ended up been a platform for people to be swindled of their money. THIS SCHOLARSHIP IS A 419 THING. Take note.

      • Angela, are you conversant with this registration process? Do you really understand my comment?
        They will send me an email in two days time and I was asked to pay the 1k is now or missed out: what’s should have been done as the deadline is 24hours time?
        .And, they provided a platform to confirm the payment that you must that page to go and make?
        .And, after payment, to return to that confirmation page you have to start at the beginning of the registration process again because it does not a random access but sequential?
        .By providing contradicting actions that will invalidate your chances is not a scam?
        .Please, who has successfully applied, paid the money and given the link to update his/her profile?

  7. Please what happened, the site is not opening

  8. I want to apply, but the website is not loading, pls what am I expected to do?
    Thanks

  9. Same here also

  10. I have applied and has been accepted or approved but no email has been sent to me till now. Secondly, there’s no way I can my profile that I created to upload my credentials. Please, why so and what do I do?

  11. The PDF SCHOLARSHIP is requesting candidates to pay the sum of 1,000 naira. This is not in line with proper scholarship standard. I THINK THEY ARE SCAM.

  12. Is this a real scholarship or not, because the site cannot be reached on my phone, please help me fix it, I am interested in the scholarship

    • It is real. The site is opening. I can’t tell what issue you are having with it. The scholarship was published on the official site of the Federal Ministry of Education.

      • I think at this stage, the organization giving scholarship should not be asking people for their bank details and asking them to pay money. It’s wrong. For now it should be free.

      • Whether the site is loading or not…or that this post was on the ministry of education’s website hasn’t changed the fact that not one person has been on here with a completely successful registration process. Everyone is having one issue or the other even after making payment. Make una look am sef na. The whole thing stinks. From the PDF/PTDF similarity to paying for the registration, it all just screams B.S., especially in these times.

        I commend y’alls effort though, but I believe you can do more about filtering the scholarship posts you put up on your site. Many of these organisations are fictitious and are just out to rip people off.

        Thanks.

        • …and one more thing, that other sites are carrying the same info shouldn’t mean you also have to do the same. People’s finances are actually at stake here.

          Don’t just make it about traffic. Among the many things that sustains a business, reputation should be up there at the top of the list. Following the bandwagon isn’t ideal. I’m just saying though.

  13. I want to apply for the scholarship PDF scholarship but the website is not opening, please what should I do
