After writing five (5) BECE exams, a 32-year-old Ghanaian man gains admission into the prestigious Adisadel College, his dream School.
This news was sighted on a popular Facebook page Tell It All. According to the report, despite doing exceptionally well in previous BECE exams, Richard Oponin Marfo fell short of Adisdel College’s requirements, forcing him to retake his final exams multiple times before ultimately being admitted.
Mr. Marfo, the eldest of his siblings, graduated from Maria Montessori School in Kumasi in 2004 with a grade of 10 and hoped to continue his studies at Adisadle College, but he was instead accepted into Sammo Senior High School.
He began his High School education at Sammo Senior High School and completed in 2007. Mr. Marfo then went into the footwear business on the streets of Adum and Moro market.
In 2010, Mr Marfo realized he would not be able to pursue his dream of enrolling at Adisadel College and opted to retake the B.E.C.E., but he was denied entrance. He summoned courage and enrolled in Kumasi’s Modern Educational Centre at Auakwa Sepaase to rewrite the BECE. Despite attaining an aggregate of 6, he was denied admission to Adisco. He did not give up on his dream school.
In 2011, he retook the B.E.C.E., but was denied entrance after achieving an aggregate of 6. He was admitted to TI Ahmadiyya with the promise of being transferred to Adisadel College after Form 2, but he dropped out after his first year and began a lotto business in Adum.
Mr Marfo did not transfer to Adisadel after his year at TI Ahmadiyya. “I was placed at Ekumfi TI Ahmadiyyaa to present science for my third attempt,” he remarked. He went there on the assurance of Adisadel College’s then-Headmaster that he would be admitted to his ideal school in form 2 on a transfer basis.
“Why should I enroll at Adisco as a transfer student? These remarks consumed me and caused me to forget the vow” he recounted. Mr Marfo wrote B.E.C.E for the fourth time as a private candidate at the age of 26, but he was admitted to his first school, Samma Senior High School, instead of Adisadel. He refused to accept the admission and went about his business.
Mr Marfo wrote his fifth B.E.C.E. in 2020 after five years of waiting and hoping, and this time he was accepted to his ideal institution, Adisadel College, at the age of 32.
This was the happiest day of his life, he says. “A year later, in 2021, finally! finally!” he says.
“On March 1, 2021, at the age of 32, God answered my prayers and provided me my long-awaited childhood dream school, Adisadel College, to study Science. And ever since I was born, that has been the happiest day of my life.” He stated.
The 32-year-old man gains admission to Adisadel College after writing BECE 5 times.
