Cursory: A Nigerian man known as Abubakar Isa Rrw has shared his inspiring story and experience writing the English language examinations.
In a post on Facebook, the user identified as, Abubakar Isa Rrw, revealed that he had failed the English language in his West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), despite passing other subjects that he had written.
Isa took the courage to rewrite again having a strong- will and determined he would pass, but this time, he failed again.
Every average person would have given up and called it “village people“, but Isa happened to be an extremist and took it upon himself to find a solution.
That’s when he decided to take the English Language Testing System (IELTS), a proficiency test developed by the British Council and Cambridge Assessment English.
Isa revealed that he had used a week to prepare. In his words:
“My little story with English Language Exam. In 2007, I took the WAEC exam at Dawakin Kudu Science College. Despite having good grades in all the other subjects, I failed the English language in my WAEC result. When I registered for another SSCE, my intention was to get an A, not even a B.
“Despite all the courage I had for that exam, I wrote it to the best of my ability at Government Secondary School in Kano, and I passed all the subjects except for the English language.
“For the first time, I decided to register for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), an English Language proficiency test developed and run by the British Council in partnership with Cambridge Assessment English.
I studied for it within a week and achieved a better result. I secured two overseas scholarships with that IELTS. result. Alhamdulillah”
