A fresh graduate of the University of Ibadan, Mayowa Joshua Amusan has given his experience of how he moved from an F9 parallel NECO result ten years ago to obtain a First Class degree in Nigeria’s premier university, the University of Ibadan.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG reports that Mayowa Joshua Amusan, recorded F9 in all nine subjects he sat for in an external examination in 2011. But that apparently did not deter him as he subsequently cleared his WAEC after three sittings before getting admission first to The Polytechnic Ibadan and then the University of Ibadan where he read Agricultural Economics.
At the recent convocation of the University of Ibadan, Amusan was one of the First Class students celebrated by the nation’s premier university.
He shared a copy of his F9 Parallel result on his Linkedin page and his recent feat. Amusan thanked his family and support system around him that turned him from failure to feat accomplisher.
DO NOT GIVE UP!.
The first picture attached to this post is a snapshot of my first ever written external examination. I had failed that year in all the subjects I sat for with a F9 Parallel. I had to resit for WAEC three times after that result before I finally cleared all of my papers.
I then proceeded to The Polytechnic of Ibadan. At the start, my CGPA was quite low but with hard work, consistency, and the help of God, I made a Distinction in Agricultural Technology.
Even though I made a Distinction, I was still reluctant to purchase the Post-UTME form for the University of Ibadan because I feared I would not pass the exams.
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!
I look forward to gaining more experience and I will continually keep tabs on the postgraduate scholarship opportunities disseminated by Kelechukwu Onwukamike (Dr. rer. nat.) (Ph.D), Babajide Milton Macaulay, Ph.D. Olumuyiwa Igbalajobi (Ph.D), Dr. Dipo Awojide, and other scholars.
