“He made six As in his WASSCE last year. He told me I could do better than he did. He planted that goal to surpass his feat in me. Whenever I had a problem with my studies, he was always around to help me out.

“He practically taught me the techniques to excel in the subjects . He prepared my mind about the syllabus in SS3 , who the teachers were and what would enable me to get the best from each of them.

“He told me I needed to put in extra efforts in whatever I was doing. On my first day in school , when I got to SS1 , my chemistry teacher called me and told me certain things about my goal. He told me no one had ever made nine As in the school.

“She prepared a study timetable for me to follow. She told me to study at least two hours at a stretch. The two teachers (chemistry and biology ) told me my goal was achievable.

“Have you always had an excellent result like this ?
By God’s grace, I have always excelled in my studies. My results were always among the best.”
