Beauty & Brain: Nigerian Tennis Player Scores 351 In UTME

Nigerian tennis player, Wuraola Fatima from Kwara State, has reportedly scored 351 in the recently released University Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results.

The 18-year-old player who wants to study Computer Science, was full of excitement when she shared the good news with Nigeria Tennis Live.

She explained that the outcome of the examination was made even more interesting because she did not put so much energy into it as she was preparing for another examination.

“I’m very happy about the result. It was a a big surprise because the exam was not one that I really prepared for. I am focused on my A-level at the moment.

“I just wrote it as a second plan, just in case, God forbid, if the A-level doesn’t work out. I’m grateful to God for giving me this result because I am very proud of it,” the one-time Sapati International School, Ilorin, Kwara State told Nigeria Tennis Live.

While stating her desire to study Computer Science, Fatimah revealed that she was home schooled for most part of her senior secondary school days and only had to join a school to write WAEC before taking the UTME examination.

According to her: “I was home schooled for most part of my Senior Secondary school years. After the Covid break in 2020, I was in SS1, so, I was home schooled for the remaining years.

“I wrote JAMB, gained admission, but I couldn’t go because I had other plans. Then I took a GAP year before returning to write JAMB again.
