It probably means that those wanabe immigrants not only need to find a person to make the application, but also to take the test (and pass :twisted: ). So the price of a visa scam would go up.

well it is unfair for the "real" students otherwise as there is very little chance in acquiring tourist visas (like in the case of China) - this way they'd probably have a lot less dropouts...

Rinso, I can see you have a skeptical view about Nigerians, well I've got news for you bro. The Nigerian education level is higher than that of Finland. The main reason why we Nigerians choose to study is because your country doesn't charge for tuition fees like the rest of the EU countries, aside for that, Finland's totally worthless. Who wants to live there anyway? That cold cold country! You guys don't even get on well with English!
I don't blame some people for coming into Finland to seek refuge, their personal greed is part of it. But don't ever think Nigerians are wannabe! I'm a Nigerian and proud to be one!

Funny how u M'Fckin scandanavians think high of yourselves! SH*T!

Dearest Recipient,

I am sorry if this letter comes to you as a surprise but I am desperate and I am at a loss - I do not know whom to turn to, therefore I'm sending this letter to a few million people of whom I know nothing at all. Although I have never actually met you, I have a hunch that tells me that you are an honest and reliable person.

My name is Jotaarkka H. Kekkonen, I live in Kotka and I am the only forgotten son of the Finnish President and Snow Castle merchant Urho Kekkonen, who unexpectedly died at the tender age of barely 86 years, on the 31st of August 1986. (He had other children too but I am the only forgotten one.) Despite the official explanation of an "unknown disease" being the reason for his demise, only God (and I) know the truth; my father was actually stared to death by an evil league of Finnish members of parliament who obviously had got wind of his plan of importing several thousands of sun-powered snow castles into Brazil.

Unfortunately I was absent when my father passed away (I was just planting flowers to the grave of my poor mother, who died of synaesthesia three years before my birth thus making me an orphan for life) but with the aid of smoke signals and secret messages tied to the tails of squirrels, my father intimately confided in me during his last moments and revealed that he had, during the past few months, secretly stashed away a sizeable fortune amounting to EIGHTEEN HUNDRED THOUSAND BILLION U.S. DOLLARS, that, unbeknownst to anyone, lay hidden inside an old hand-woven reindeer-hair carpet in the vaults of a small bank in Pelkosenniemi.

Now, I am exceedingly glad that I have found a trustworthy business partner in you, as the village bank of Pelkosenniemi is already continuously besieged by the said Members of Parliament - and besides, due to the amnesia I caught when scuba diving near the coast of Finland last week, I am afraid that I do not remember my personal bank PIN code anymore.

I am just 24 years old and a university undergraduate here in Kotka and really don't know what to do. This is because, after three years of studies, I have suffered a lot of setbacks - mostly resulting from my friends just recently pointing out to me that there's actually no university here in Kotka. Sir, I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.

For you to assist me in this transaction I will offer you 25 percent of the total sum. Please if you have any question to ask me about this transaction do not delay to contact me on my email address. I await your urgent response as soon as possible.

Thanks and best regards

Jotaarkka H. Kekkonen

Authorities say that recipients of these permits have committed dozens of violations of immigration laws. These include attempts by visa recipients to bring other people into the country.

Sure it is, there are few numbers what clearly proves that...

Nigeria vs Finland
Literacy level 69,1 vs 99,0
Starts scool (% of schooling age) (2005) 68 vs 98
Continue to 5th grade (% of whom started school) (2004) 73 vs 99

Yeah and high schools are top of world..

"In fact, if we focus on higher education, the situation is not
encouraging because of poor funding and inadequate pedagogical resources. This
situation has led to a poor quality of schooling at this level"
Source http://ahero.uwc.ac.za/index.php?module ... 2583751461

I have admit nigerian schooling is superior.... even global competetive list says so...

4th pillar: Health and primary education
Country/Economy Rank Score
Finland 1 6.58
Nigeria 124 3.55

5th pillar: Higher education and training
Country/Economy Rank Score
Finland 1 6.01
Nigeria 109 3.00

Well done phililex, you've really helped the image of your country.

Are you really Nigerian, or just trolling to raise anti-Nigerian sentiment?
Political correctness is the belief that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
