David Okorogheye, the 15-year-old boy who aced through his WAEC and JAMB exams has been denied admission.
Due to his age he was not considered to study Medicine at the University Of Lagos (UNILAG) and was not even allowed to take part in the Post-UTME exams.
David from Delta state had 336 in JAMB and and 9As in WAEC. His course of choice was Medicine and his university of choice was UNILAG. But the institution denied him admission on the ground of his age.
A candidate must be 16 years before he/she can be offered admission into UNILAG. As a result, David was not allowed to take part in the post UTME exams. He was told to try again next year when he comes of age.
The lad however has come to terms with the surrounding situations and says he will wait for the next year’s admission.
His interest to become a neurosurgeon, came about when he watched doctors battle to save the life of his late father when he was 8 years old, and since then vowed to study medicine so he can save lives.
