There have always been stories about how difficult it is to pass Law school exams let alone making first class.
Pulse recently spoke to a student, Oludare Subomi Onokoya who made first class in the previous Law School exams and he said:
“It wasn’t easy, but I won’t say it was too difficult either. It has a lot to do with mindset and believing that all obstacles are surmountable if a person is determined enough.”
