The uncommon courage a first year student displayed during his first semester lectures on campus left many people shocked and impressed at the same time.
According to a Twitter user, the young man decided to correct a lecturer mid way through his class and this boldness caused a buzz.
A photo shared by @Ebuksoficial on the microblogging platform showed the student in front of the class explaining something to the lecturer.
He captured; “Omo…dis fresher de correct lecturer 😂”

@Asotruth_07; You just said he is correcting the lecturer. It means the lecturer might have made a mistake somewhere he took note of. Lecturers are not gods, they are allowed to make mistakes.
@enkay_jakes; Leave am oh,Na him score highest for WAEC and JAMB oh😂
@Glow_babyy; E sure me die, na all these people wey score higher in POST UTME and JAMB😂😂😂
@walshakgentle; When I was in year one, that was how i and others used to correct our lecturers and year 2 students that were doing one borrowed course with us were just staring at us. When our first semester results came out, we started keeping quiet in class during lecture.
Meanwhile, CorrectNG reported that a brilliant South African student identified Aphiwe Hlatshwayo turned down an offer to study in the United States on scholarship.
The girl bagged six distinctions in her matric exams at Reddford House The Hills in Pretoria, and was offered an opportunity to further her studies in USA but she chose a South African higher Institution.
Aphiwe, who is also the head girl at her school, instead, opted to study medicine at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.
According to the best graduating student, when she saw that her first and second-term marks had dropped after dedicating much of her time to activities outside of academics, she knew she had to turn things around.
The brilliant girl said she spent a great portion of her time organising school events, representing the school at competitions and serving its pupils.
“When someone comes to me for help, I will avail myself in that moment, pushing everything of mine aside to help the next person until I no longer have time left for me,” she said.
Her multiple engagements accompanied with procrastination and not studying enough, meant that her grades dropped. She then had to do some self-reflection and realign herself with her goals. This has led to Hlatshwayo bagging six distinctions and ranking in the top 5% of Independent Examinations Board candidates nationally for several subjects.
Following her stellar performance, Hlatshwayo was offered admission at Seattle University in the US to study Anatomy for four years, and another four years in medicine as part of its postgraduate programme.
But she declined at the advise of her mentor who advised against going to the US as she would have to spend an additional four years before completing her four-year medical degree.
