Adams College celebrates UTME top scorers
Adams International College, Oshodi, Lagos has recorded another major feat, as 78 of its candidates scored above 300 in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
At an award ceremony organised by the school to celebrate the students, Proprietor of the college, Adams Adebola, described the achievement as national record, considering the fact that no tutorial centre can boast of that record from a total of 6,700 students who scored above 300 across the country.
He said the institution was established to give youths direction in life and mentor them to achieve their dreams, adding that when other schools and students engage in malpractice, the college gives its students a solid foundation, so that when they leave they make use of what they have gained to become a better person.
“I mentor them and most of the parents present at this award ceremony were the students I taught years ago. They are parents of students who have scored above 300 in UTME. If they were not well taught, mentored and directed, it would affect them.
“This year alone, about 201 of my students gained admission to the University of Lagos. This year alone, we bagged the Southwest Nigerian Education Award as the Outstanding Tutorial Centre of 2019 and National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) 2019 Award of Excellence in Outstanding Leadership. So, we want to keep on doing the right thing to ensure these results are sustained.”
He disclosed that since the inception of the centre 25 years ago, it has produced about 190 students that scored above 300 in UTME. “This is a national record, no tutorial centre in Nigeria can boast of that record, coupled with the fact that only 6,700 students scored above 300 this year UTME throughout Nigeria.
“The secret of our success is the God. I do my best for the students, in my own little capacity. I’m not desperate about getting money, I have a job I could do elsewhere as I graduated with First Class in Computer Engineering from the University of Ile, but I just felt I could invest my life in the youths.”
One of the awardees, Toluwalope Ishola, who scored 339, the highest mark from the tutorial, attributed her success to God and hard work. “I am going for this course because of my passion to help people and to make remarkable impact on people.”
Oluwatamilore Dipo-Ojo, a second place joint scorer with 337 marks, described the teaching method of the school as fantastic, adding that the teachers’ relationship with the candidates stands the school out compared to other tutorial classes.Dipo-Ojo, who plans to study Medicine & Surgery at the University of Ibadan, said: I am going for this course because of my passion to help people.”
