      Congratulations Funmi.

      Meanwhile another female hijabi Medicine and Surgery student bagged first class. She was decorated as the best overall graduating student at Unilorin in 2016, taking home 10 out of 12 scholarship awards of all categories, just like she did when she graduated from FGCIK in 2008, yet her name did not make wave in the Nigerian media space.

      There is nothing like “first class’ in medicine and sugary. You either pass or fail. You can however pass with a distinction or a credit or just pass in some or all the courses taken.

    i don’t like the expression beauty and brains, you never hear handsome and brainy for a guy, even if he looks like shrek, no attention is ever called to his looks. Its like oh most women have one or the other so we need to make a ton of noise when a woman is perceived as beautiful and is also smart.
