A 12-year-old boy identified as Viemens Bamfo has just gained admission into the University Of Ghana, as he was among the 2900 fresh students who were matriculated over the weekend into the school
According to reports, Viemens was home-schooled by his father after his lower primary education at Akyem-Oda in the Eastern Region.
The 12-year-old student wrote the West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and passed with flying colors as a private candidate.
Viemens in an interview with Accra based Citi TV stated that his father uses what his children like to teach them – teaching by association.
“We combined the syllabus… we used the Cambridge syllabus and the WASSCE syllabus… so I understood some basic things about [them],” he said.
The 12-year-old boy is currently studying Public Administration at the University of Ghana Distance Education School as he aims at becoming the president of Ghana by age 40.
Viemens is not the only beneficiary of homeschooling. His senior brother, 20-year-old Edwin Bamfo also went through the same training and has since completed the Kwame Nkrumah University (KNUST) with Upper-Class honours in Environmental Science.
