The Basic Things you Need to Know About Portal
We have already seen some of the functions of the school portal. Now, the below are the things you need:
- A working email
- A clear Passport
- Your Details (Name, age, etc)
#1. A Working Email:
This is one of the basic tool you need while creating an account with any institution or body. The function of this email is for communication between the system and the users. You are the user, and the website (portal) is the system. Anytime you send in information, the email provided will be used for further communication with you. Some of the functions of the email are:
- Recovery of Password.
- News Update
#2. A Clear Passport:
Your profile needs a passport. This is what the system use to recognize the user. Information send via the portal to institution is well read and understood by the receiver when passport photograph is attached to it.
How to Upload a good Passport:
- Any time you are to upload passport to your portal account, make sure that it is clear.
- Use a good device to snap it, edit it well with some powerful photo editing software before uploading it. Personally, I use Photoshop and my Android phone for this purpose. It serves me the stress and money.
#3. Your Details (Name, age, etc):
Your Portal should contain your details such as your names (First Name, last name), date of birth, etc. These details are used for identification of the user of the portal account.
Some institution will ask users to upload documents such as credentials to the portal account. Most times, you will be given the file size to use. It is therefore necessary to abide to the instructions so as not to cause traffic. Jamb will ask candidates to upload O Level results, and some other necessary documents.
