It is a known fact that many secondary school students ended up in Arts class because of their phobia for mathematics. Although mathematical calculations are usually scary to Arts students, their counterparts in the science class find them easier.
Legit.ng reports that Erudite Gap Year Institute Ibadan, a foremost prevarsity for preparing Nigerians for Cambridge A' Level, SAT, IELTS, GRE and other foreign examinations, proffered solution to the maths phobia within three months.
The director of Erudite Gap Year Institute, Saheed Oladele, told Legit.ng that the great feat was recorded by the institute despite that the assignment was the scariest it got in recent time.
"This girl was the scariest assignment Erudite got in recent time! She attended one of the best secondary schools in Nigeria but didn't make her maths in WASSCE. Being an ARTS student, she had phobia for maths. She lost an admission for not having maths and the family was disturbed.

"Then a family friend, whose two daughters have passed through our system, recommended Erudite. He said he had no doubt in our ability to deliver. The girl's parents brought her in and asked us to give them assurances. We promised to deliver at least a C6 in maths within 3 months!
"Work started and we had to teach 8 subjects for a possibility of having all her results at a sitting within the 3 months. At a point, the father lost hope and asked us to register her for 2022 May/June WASSCE as a backup. The family friend also called twice to say we should not 'damage his face' in Yoruba. I began nursing some fears and had to put my staff under pressure to deliver."

According to him, the family friend was the first person to call him the day the result came out, asking whether he had checked it.
"The day the result came out, the family friend was the first person to call. 'Baba, the result is out. Hope you have checked it? Se e o ti ba oju mi je? This girl's father is my mentor.' Hmmmmmmmmmm!
"We checked the result and found out our student got b and c's in all her 8 subjects. She got a C6 in mathematics! She doesn't need May/June WASSCE again. She has joined our Cambridge A' Level class. To God alone be the glory."
Oladele, who was extremely happy, congratulated his team for the nearly impossible achievement as he also thanked the family friend for believing in the institute.
The father of the girl, according to him, gave a sum of money to throw a small party for the staff members of the Erudite to show his appreciation.
