The young lady, who is currently serving in Rivers state, said that her target after learning that first class was still attainable was to finish each semester with only A's.
"I’m just genuinely grateful to God for making it possible for me to actualize my goal.
"I’d like to say I didn’t put enough efforts in my initial years in the university. However the goal to graduate with a first class was what motivated me to discuss with my course advisor Mr. Mamidu.
"I met him to discuss if it was still possible to graduate with a first class considering that I was on second class upper division. We then proceeded to calculate how many A’s and how many B’s I needed to score before I make a first class..."
