Sharing the story on Facebook, Toochi Tersugh Stephen said the boy was the head boy of Tofi Memorial Grammar School, Goboko Benue state.

After graduating from secondary school, he started making attempts to get into Benue State University to study medicine.

In the 2023 UTME, Achika Tahav David scored 252, and in the 2024 exams, he scored 282.

Achika scored 58 in English, 71 in physics, 61 in biology and 82 in chemistry, bringing his aggregate to 282.

Toochi wrote while sharing Achika’s story on Facebook:

“He was the Headboy and the best student of his set at Tofi Memorial Grammar School Gboko, 2022. He’s been writing JAMB exams since graduation.

“Last year, he did really well on his JAMB exam, scoring 252, but he still couldn’t secure admission into the university. And now, this year, he did even better, scoring 282. But I’m worried he might face the same disappointment again.”

Despite his performance, he has failed to gain admission to study medicine and surgery, his preferred course.

Toochi asked:

“Seeing him struggle like this breaks my heart. Why is it so hard for the brilliant ones?”

In an update in the comment section, Toochi said steps are being taken to get Achika into school.
