Comment on The First Class controversy by Abdulahi O. FALADE.

Kudos to the prolific writer on a topic that requires proper attention and scrutinization.

Graduating with first class has always been a prestige and worth pursuing as an achievement. Not only that it makes one distinct among others, but also creates ample opportunities.

But the bone of contention is that, being a first class doesn’t implies you are at the top of the world and not a yardstick for any fellow to look than on others. By the way, most first class graduates are known to be brilliant base on cognitive domain while affective and psycho-motor domain part of is being left out due to adopted system of education. Thus, we have cases of graduates with first class grades which are questionable.

At this juncture, I am advising first class graduates to see this achievement as a challenge to work harder because it is not over until it is over. I believe every student has a unique feature which makes him/her a first class at any point in life.

For those that are still in neighbourhood of achieving first class grade , put in your efforts and I wish you the best in all ramifications.
