A Nigerian young man identified as Abayomi Victor Ekundayo narrates how he wrote JAMB-UTME exams five times without getting Admission to study law, Siggy reports.
The young man stated after he graduated from secondary school and made his Olevels result intact in one sitting, he find it hard to get admission because his JAMB UTME result was bad.
In his word:
I wasn’t so lucky in getting into the university. After I graduated from secondary school and made my O’levels in one sitting, I applied and sat for the Universities Matriculation Exam (UME). Fortunately (and unfortunately), my result that year wasn’t good enough to get me into the university of my choice to study Law.
Nevertheless, I tried again the following year but to no avail. It was either I had a low Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) score or I had a low UME score. I kept trying again and again until I ended up writing the UME five times.
All these happened while I was in my uncle’s house. Even when I was frustrated and I was offered another course, I remained determined. It wasn’t until six years later that I finally achieved the dream to study Law at the Ekiti State University . This was thanks to my mom and Prof. Oke, the then Dean, Faculty of Law at the university.
