An exceptional Nigerian Lady named Oluwafunmilayo Oni has achieved an exceptional feat after winning the United Kingdom Government’s Chevening Scholarship with her second-class lower degree, beating several applicants with first-class university degrees.

Oluwafunmilayo did not only win the UK Government Chevening Scholarship Award, but she also won the Irish Government Scholarship at the same time both with her second-class lower Bachelor’s degree certificate.

Oluwafunmilayo took to her LinkedIn handle to celebrate her achievement noting that she once doubted her ability to win any scholarship due to her Bachelor’s degree grade. “For years, I doubted my ability to bag any scholarship for my Masters degree because many scholarship granting organizations often stated clearly that they would rather a minimum of 2:1 (second-class upper),” she wrote on LinkedIn.

She recalled that she once applied for a scholarship opportunity and was told that her leadership experience was superb and excellent but she did not meet the academic criteria because of her Bachelor’s degree grade.

However, she did not relent on her applications and strive to make an impact in the world. After several attempts, she was awarded two scholarships on the same day.

“This year, I was awarded the Chevening Scholarship and the Irish Aid scholarship on the same day. See God!” she wrote.
