Teenager Who Couldn’t Get Admission Into UNILAG After Scoring 320 In JAMB, Gets Two Scholarships In US

Posted by Thandiubani on Fri 24th May, 2024 - tori.ng

Twitter user known as Arinze Odira revealed that the young lady is his sister-in-law.

 
A Nigerian man has taken to Twitter to narrate how his sister-in-law who scored 320 was denied admission into UNILAG.
 
However, the young lady later got two fully funded scholarships to a U.S. university.
 
Arinze Odira took to his Twitter page to share the story and wrote:
 
“My sister-in-law is an intelligent girl. She scored 284 on her first JAMB, but couldn’t get into Unilag to study medicine. The next year, she scored 320, but still no admission into Unilag (I can’t explain it). I couldn’t just sit back and watch her talent go to waste.

So, I got her to take the SAT exam. She prepped for only two weeks and scored 1450. We started applying for scholarships in the US, and she got two fully funded scholarships and one partial one. Last week, she went for her visa interview. In a few months, she’ll be heading to the United States.

1. I am still confused that she couldn’t get into Unilag. Something is definitely wrong with our system.
2. I am happy she is going to somewhere she can truly shine and explore her full potential.
3. It’s a shame we keep losing our brightest minds.
4. To be successful, you need opportunity, information and access.”
