It’s hard to put into words how inspiring Mayowa Joshua Amusan’s story of academic success has been on the internet.
Mayowa graduated from the University of Ibadan with a first-class degree in agricultural economics and was the department’s top student.
In his first-ever written external exam, he scored F9 parallel.
The National Examination Council (NEC) is Mayowa’s first-ever external examination, and he reveals that he failed all of the papers on his first attempt (NECO).
A copy of the F9 parallel result was shared by the graduate, who stated that he was able to pass his WAEC exams after three attempts.
In response to the question, the young man said he had transferred to the Polytechnic of Ibadan to continue his education.
He entered UI through direct admission.
Mayowa did well in her studies at Ibadan Polytechnic and decided to transfer to the University of Ibadan (UI).
Mayowa said he was hesitant to register for UI’s POST-UTME because he feared he would not be able to complete it.
The bright student was able to pass the exam thanks to the support of his family and siblings, and now he is a gold medalist in agricultural economics.
As he put it to me:
“My parents and siblings believed in me and God-willing I gained admission through direct entry into 200 Level to study Agricultural Economics. I not only made a first-class, but I graduated as the best in my department.
“With God, hard work, a loving family, and good friends everything is possible.
“Keep at it and DO NOT GIVE UP!”
