After numerous setbacks, Nigerian lady bags a first class in South Africa lailasnews


The lady took to her Instagram page to narrate how it too her 8 years after she finished secondary school to graduate from a university.

She wrote about her multiple failed attempts to gain an admission into a Nigerian university, and how she had to repeat secondary school on getting to South Africa.

See what she wrote below;

A very big thank you to God for making this graduation day possible after 8 years of finishing high school in Nigeria!!!! Had a nice ssce results and passed jamb( my score was more than the minimum requirement of gaining admission)but won’t still gain admission.

After spending several amount of money to process admission and all seems futile. I decided to be a tailor apprentice instead of sitting at home but still processing my admission. When we keep spending money every year to gain admission, then I got admitted to Mapoly to study Mass communications (Part time ) but that was not part of my plans. So my brother decided to send me to South Africa to study. Getting to South Africa and tendered my results, I was told my Nigeria certificate (ssce) was below standard and should repeat high school. T

hat was the lowest point for me in my education advancement. I decided to start from grade 11 ( Ss2) and I was the oldest in class 😂 but to the glory of God I passed Matric nicely as well and I got accepted to study Human Resources Management. Yesterday 14/12/2018, I bagged CumLaude (first class) in that field. I give all Glory to God and big thanks to my family and friends for the love and support.

It’s been a long journey but am grateful I did not give up!!! #Cputsummergrad2018 #OnlyGodMadeitpossible #nevergiveup #omoagege👌🏾 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬x🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦
