My admission journey started way back in 2014 when I took my first jamb, I had 191 and was eligible to write uniport post utme. I did well, but uniport never released a cut off mark and people who scored far lesser than me were admitted. As a first timer, I shook it off feeling it wasn't just my time.

I took jamb again, I had 227 after paying and attending rigorous tutorials just to make it into unilag. I wrote the post UTME and I had an aggregate of 57.38. Cut off for petroleum engineering was pegged at 67.38, wow! I failed right, I didn't, unilag only admitted 25 out of over 1000 students that were aspiring to study that course. Did you just exclaim! Unilag wicked jor.
It took me time to outlive the memory. After much encouragement, I gave jamb another try, scored 237 and applied for fupre. I prayed and prayed that God was just bringing visions that I will enter school. Months into conducting the exam, post UTME was cancelled. To many of us, that was the best thing that had happened since the beginning of the Buhari led administration but the memories that outlived that hurt so many students. I for one, was very happy but, fupre shocked me, I wasn't admitted whereas those who had 180 were offered admission. At that point I said it with my own tongue, that there is no God. I'm a very good church goer. My dad said so many things that threw me off balance that even made me to keep myself away from going to church.
Friends, I wasn't getting younger, I needed to be in school. During the festivities, I was able to convince my dad to allow me give pre degree a try. He agreed but with a condition that if I should fail, I should just forget about schooling. I registered and resumed about two months late into the program. I took another jamb as mandated by the program, I had 264 and at the end of the program had 57%, I came fourth in my department.
Today, I have been admitted, I've always wanted to become a petroleum engineer even when everyone thinks/feel I would be better of being a doctor. I did not settle for less. I waited till I got it. Many of my secondary school mates are in various schools, some already in their final year offering courses they never intended to study because situation made them to. I kept going till I got it.
Who says you can't get there? Not everyone will be admitted but please, don't settle for less. Keep fighting till you get it.
