Daniyan, who earned a standing ovation from guests and students, was inducted into the school’s Star Club on Sunday, May 7, 2023, with a 353 overall score.
According to a statement issued by the school’s Public Relations Officer, Chidinma Unigwe, Daniyan has been an outstanding student, and it is no surprise that he did admirably in the recently ended JAMB UTME.
“We are not surprised that Ayomide had an impressive score in the 2023 UTME; it is a well-deserved feat,” she says. He has been a standout student since the day he was admitted to the school. He won the Senior Mathematics competition organized by the Mathematics Association of Nigeria, as well as the Mathematics and Science Olympiad, last year.We are pleased that the school’s efforts have continued to produce great results in the pupils. Last year, a Grundtvig student, Samuel Ozumba, finished third in Nigeria in the JAMB UTME, and we are happy that we are also leading this year. According to the statistics we’ve seen thus far, more than 30 of our pupils scored above 300 and none scored below 200."
