A man identified as Mayowa Joshua Amusan has taken to social media to narrate a bit of his success story after he bagged a first-class degree, despite having parallel F9 in NECO.
Taking to LinkedIn, he opened up to have written WASSCE three times before he finally cleared his papers.
However, due to hard work and commitment, he successfully bagged a first-class degree in Agricultural Economics and stood out as the best graduating student in his department.
“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!”
