A man who spent seven years writing the examination set by the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, JAMB, has revealed that he graduated with a First Class.

According to the man identified as Jamie, he would have given up on the pursuit of higher education if not for his mother.

“The day you lose hope is the day you stop living. I registered for Jamb 7 times & secured admission on my 6 sitting. Almost gave up but for my mom. I eventually graduated as the best student in my class ( current CGPA: 4.53) as i await NYSC. I hope to share my story someday.”

One Twitter user, @cissyeko responded:

Your story is so inspiring. Thank you for sharing it. Glad you had a mother who supported you through it all and congratulations on your amazing score. 4:53 that is awesome! Best wishes as you journey through.”

Jamie replied:

She’s been a blessing to me and that kick in my *ss. You are welcome and thank you too.”
