An individual from Nigeria, Oluwananumi Dawodu, has finally achieved a medical degree with double distinctions after taking the JAMB exam three times, his degree being from Lagos State University, Nigeria.
Oluwananumi Dawodu earned his undergraduate Medicine and Surgery (MB, BS) degree from Lagos State University. Sharing his educational journey on Linkedin, he revealed that it took him a total of eight years to successfully earn the degree.
“After spending 8 years on my undergraduate medical degree at Lagos State University, I finally received a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MB; BS) degree,” he shared.
Dawodu disclosed that he did not pass the university entrance exam on his first two attempts, but succeeded on the third try. Despite these hurdles and failing every MBBS exam except the first one, he remained perseverant and eventually graduated from university.
Dawodu’s academic journey is filled with accomplishments. He won the Diana Award during his fourth university year and collected four separate scholarships due to his active participation as a student.
