Nigerians who yearly seek admission in many UK universities are subjected to further English tests just to ascertain that they can learn with the English language.
This is because many UK universities do not recognise Nigeria as an English-speaking nation.
Therefore Nigerians seeking admission into UK universities go through further English proficiency tests such as IELTS and TOEFL.
However, there are a few schools that accept a C6 in English in the West African School Certificate Examination as a qualifying English test.
