    Uliza Joho na wenzake, ata hiyo PASS ni muhimu. You always have to go that extra mile to prove that you are not less competent in what you do, the bottom line is that you know and remain focused on what you want to do never resting until you achieve it. Otherwise you will get complacent with dropping everything you start at the slightest sign of a challenge.

    This is a professional course, I see nothing wrong with a pass and @Voltron hasn't said he needs it for job hunting, in the long run when you have been in a profession long enough no one bothers whether you got As or Ds performance is paramount, that's my experience.

    This is okay what you say and is good for you. But all those you beat to the job at some point will get a job somewhere. In a year or two their experiences will match yours. Now if a higher position comes up in a different institution and you all apply, they have a slight advantage over you because they have a degree and you dont.
    I say to always complete that first degree, even for psychological purposes.

    A very close friend of mine got a pass in bsc general. First job safcom, second with a local bank, third with an international organisation out of the country, fourth another international organisation in different country paying thrice the salo. The wife also got a pass in engineering, started as an intern in an energy parastatal and currently on permanent. These are guys who grew up in village and don't know big people. For myself at least once a week I have to feel bad why am not finishing that masters after I did coursework in 2013 and got As in all 90% of units. Shida ni project which am always procrastinating. Have lost so many big opportunities because don't have that paper

    Wasee wanabonga kuhusu pass.
    I have a cuzo who did certificate in automotive saa hii ile ndoo anashika wacha tu.
    The guy specialized on those huge cranes you see kwa port .
    Nigguh earns and lives like king.
    Moral of the story is what drives you and what you love doing.
    Which course in engineering coz I did one na sijawai rudi tena but the certifications nimepata over the years are a mark of respect among my peers.
    Maliza course buda boss.
    The rest will take care of themselves.

    You should finish that degree. Your professors were First Class students but see how miserable their lives are while their Pass counterparts are the guys who own huge companies that land inflated tenders thus mint millions.

    I graduated top in my Civil Engineering class & got registered by EBK, however, I have never practiced and never intend to. I just use that piece of paper to justify why I charge premium rates for my services in a totally different line of business.

    Man, don't deny yourself the perks & opportunities that come with being called bwana engineer.

    Without the certificate you wouldn't get the opportunity to impress your employer with your performance. There is no worthless certificate, all some employers require is a certificate of participation.

    He should go back to school but just so that he does not have that unfinished business thing around his neck since he said he is doing well already.

    Maliza hiyo degree kijana. Achana na hii maneno ya grade. It's meaningless after 2 yrs out. Attitude and experience is everything. I am an Engineer, never got those 1st class or fancy grades in Uni, but I've worked hard and consider myself stable and successful. Don't be a lazy shit.

    Indeed. One of my nephews decided to drop out of Uni up North in Liverpool as he hated his Econ degree so much. The Dad nearly walked there ....he does not use it as he does other stuff but the cert is there should he ever need it.

    Dad,!!!! woooi opening the door and seeing Dad ain't always funny in student digs and the possibility of finding a chic in the digs was killing me. :DSis and I had to tag along to keep the peace. Alimaliza but boy hates the field....I keep telling him put it under the bed. He says cert smells of the lib where he lived 90% of the time.
