The incredible performance of Sochima David Chukwudi and Zilayefa Okoroze-trust, two Nigerian students who sat for the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT), emerging as the best, and second best students respectively, have indicated that Nigeria’s future is promising.
Chukwudi, a student of the Nigeria Tulip International College (NTIC) broke the SAT record, scoring 1590 out of the maximum score of 1600 points.
Okoroze-trust, a student of Jesuit Memorial College (JMC) Port Harcourt, Rivers State scored 99 per cent in the examination, obtaining 1530 out of 1600 maximum points, thus clinching the second position.
The highest score ever in the history of SAT in Nigeria by any student was 1510 out of 1600 until Chukwudi broke the record.
SAT, a standardised test, assesses the academic preparedness of students by testing applicants’ knowledge in reading, writing, and Mathematics subjects taught daily in high schools.
SAT is taken by both junior and senior high school students applying to colleges and universities.
The examination can be taken six times internationally during the year.
Speaking, Chukwudi attributed his success to the grace of God, the support of his teacher and self-study.
“It took me months of studying, reading, preparing and practising for this exam. I also used many website materials to practise and understand what SAT is all about,” he said.
He spoke further, “I can also say that I had a lot of sleepless nights and I am grateful to God that those nights paid off.”
