Agnes Maduafokwa, the Nigerian student who scored highest with 365 in the recently released Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) has revealed the secrets of her success.
The 16-year-old assistant head girl of Louisville Girls High School, Ijebu-Itele in Ogun state, said her secret was studying at the right time and sleeping when she was supposed to, The Guardian reports.
Legit.ng notes that Agnes said reading at intervals, taking breaks and sleeping at the right time helped her achieve the feat.
She said: "If you have an examination, I feel that you don’t have to burn the midnight oil because if you have been working hard from day one, there is no reason to read extra hard the night before the exam."
"Apart from that, when you read too much, you might not be able to remember everything because it is called 'fast reading.' But when you read at intervals and breaks, sleep when you are supposed to, it really helps a lot and that’s what I do."
Legit.ng previously reported that Agnes is one of the beautiful minds the country is blessed with.
She said she wants to study engineering at university where she will be able to apply mathematical concepts to help solve societal issues.
