“I screamed and started crying when I saw my result” – Zainab Dantsoho, 17, who got straight As in 2019 WASSCE
Zainab Dantsoho, a 17-year-old girl who got straight As in the 2019 WASSCE, has described how she felt when she saw her result.
The Lagoon School, Lekki alumni made the disclosure in an interview with TheCable.
Describing how she felt on achieving the feat, Dantsoho said, “I feel great. Thank God. When I saw my result, I screamed and started crying.
“I didn’t think I was going to get that but I knew I worked towards it and prayed for that result.
“But it was very surprising. The school called me to announce the result. They said they were very proud of me. We were just two in the school who had A1 in all the subjects we sat for.”
Dantsoho, who is a native of Jalingo, Taraba State, attributed her success to God’s blessing and intense studying, and expressed satisfaction on making her parents proud.
She said, “When we began the registration, I knew I had to do well. So, I read far and wide before sitting for each subject because I didn’t know what would come out.
“Moreover, they have been preparing us for WAEC for the past six years. I read extra textbooks, extra notes and whatever information I could find anywhere.
“Not every subject went smoothly. I doubted myself in some subjects but at the end I got As in all. My parents were really happy.”
