A matriculating student of the Obafemi Awolowo University Olajide Kazim Bashir, has said that he attempted the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations consecutively twelve times before securing admission in the 2016/2017 academic year.
He says that he had always wanted to be a student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, hence his choice each time of the school.
He further revealed that he had scored above the mandatory 200 in each of the instances, but he had never secured admission. He says he had always wanted to study Law at OAU. Speaking further, he said:
‘Sincerely, my case is pathetic, I went through a chronic psychological trauma in my quest for gown and wig at OAU. I almost lost my mind, but for constant encouragement from many of my friends and relatives.“The moral supports from my immediate family, especially my father gave me the requisite impetus to move on till I attained success,’ he says.
