Victory Yinka Banjo shares the interesting and challenging part of her journey below.

“I would like to share a story about my WASSCE 2020. That year, because of Covid-19, the results came out later than usual. However, when WAEC released them, mine were withheld.

It was emotionally traumatic for me because I needed it for my university applications and the uncertainty was unbearable. I cried a lot even the day before my graduation.

But the week of my birthday (December 13th), WAEC released my results, after 6 weeks of withholding them. And, I am extremely thankful that it came out spotless. 9A1s! Not a single grade down. This has taught me that you cannot underestimate the power of determination.”


PS: The more that you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
