Sometimes when you attempt to build a striving startup in Nigeria a lot of shit happens… I ran a startup for a while, which I put my heart and resources into from late 2013. This startup helps Nigerian students seeking higher institution education prepare for their major exams. Our unique angle was to make students experience Computer Base Test (CBT) in a gaming environment. This we did excellently well. We call the platform ALOC (Academic League of Champions).

ALOC is an adventure-based CBT practice platform with an engaging game story that unravels as students progress in-game levels. We use gaming concepts to increase student practice time and grades.

In layman's terms, ALOC makes learning fun, rewards witty performance and makes academic excellence the “new cool”.

Idle Past Questions

We have a database of UTMEWASSCE, NECO, and Post-UTME past questions which took a lot of effort and resources to put together. We felt those questions are sitting too idle so we decided to open its APIs source code and endpoints. Software developers, educators, and stakeholders can use these questions to develop interesting apps for students.

JSON return of Question and Answer

Contribute and Use

The source code for this project can be found on Git Hub. Feel free to contribute. If this project (Nigeria Past questions API endpoints) get much traction, a friend suggests that we build another open-source project where users can report questions with the wrong answer, typographical error, and poorly explained solutions.
