A student of Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto identified as Zainab Abdullahi has emerged as the institution's first female first class graduate in Physics.
The 22-year-old student is one of those listed at the recent combined convocation ceremony of the university as having bagged first class honours.
Legit.ng gathers that Zainab who is an indigene of Katsina, graduated with a CPGA of 4.81 in the 2017/2018 academic session.
Reacting to her academic feat, Zainab said: “It was just dedication and prayers. Since my UG1, I’ve worked hard towards graduating with First Class.
“I read to understand, not just to pass, so I do not like cramming. Anytime I had free period, I did not waste it. I read, if not in class, then in the library, or in group discussion.”
She was said to be the overall best at the University Primary School where she did her basic education. She was also overall best in NECO at the University Model Secondary School Sokoto.
Zainab said: “If I want to cover a particular topic while in school, I made sure I did. Whenever I sat with my friends, it is just to read, I do not have time to gist.
“I want to remove fear in students about Physics, and I also want to contribute my quota towards imparting knowledge of Physics.
“Physics is not difficult; from the lowest to the highest level, all you need is just to have the interest. The insinuation that Physics is difficult is wrong. Physics needs constant research."
