Trust you are doing great. This topic is about achievement,  and an opportunity on pursuing your dream of going to a world-class college with full or partial scholarship within Africa.

First we have the story of Oloruntoba Ogunfolaji who has emerged the best scholar in the 2013 May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
He was honoured by the leadership of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) together with two females, Ifeoluwapo Fasola and Maureen Anyanwu, both of who are natives of Oyo and Imo states in Nigeria, respectively on Thursday in Minna, Niger State, Nigeria.

For posting outstanding results, the trio received the WAEC’s prestigious National Distinction and Merit Awards. They scored A1 in all their subjects.
However, Ogunfolaji is considered the overall best candidate having scored a total grade of 666.6525 in eight subjects, including English Language and Mathematics.

By the feat, the young man becomes the current holder of the esteemed award instituted by the council in 1984 to encourage academic excellence. Read More: http://www.punchng.com/education/19-year-old-emerges-wassce-best-pupil/
