Oreofe Odagbodo sat for the West African Senior Certificate Examination (WASCE) for a record 7 times before he could make the required grade to enroll for a university degree in Nigeria.
However, Oreofe shook that off and went ahead to make first class in the university. He studied Civil Engineering at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun state and came out tops.

How he turned around his studies
No one could have expected that someone who failed WAEC several times would come out with a first-class. But Oreofe said since he was tired of being backward in the class, he decided to work very hard. He continued his story:
"When I got to school, I sat down and thought about my life. I was tired of being in the back of the class, so I decided to be a serious Christian and an extra diligent student. To God's honor, I graduated from OOU's Civil Engineering Department as one of the best students of set 2019/2020, with a CGPA of 4.67. It became a reality because I dreamed it and took intentional steps to make it a reality."

Lady makes first-class from UNILAG, celebrates in grand style
Meanwhile, Legit.ng has previously reported that a young lady finished top of her class at the University of Lagos, UNILAG.
Oluwapelumi Oluyide who studied Business Administration said she almost gave up her ambition to finish with a first-class but had to put more effort.
According to Oluwapelumi, it took her a total of 5 years to finish a 4-year course due to the Covid-19 pandemic that disrupted academic activities across the globe.
