What was your Reading Pattern?
Firstly , I made the university Library my second home where I utilized all its resources. I adopted a reading pattern from my close friend, Yemi, who happens to be studying Medicine and Surgery currently in OOU. I read anytime, anywhere and I had a functioning personal timetable which I followed religiously. At the beginning of each semester I purchased higher education notes in equivalent numbers as those of the course I am to offer then then I made thorough research from various textbooks, the internet, watched YouTube videos, attempted practice questions, past questions and set questions personally to evaluate myself. All salient point were also jotted down in my personal notes separate from the lecturers notes. I had my study/ discussion team where we argued and dissected any problem we encountered on a daily basis. After each examination we always discussed how we tackled the questions in case of next time and to strengthen our conviction that distinctions should come out from the exams we just concluded.

We Learnt Biochemistry is one of the toughest Course/Department in the faculty of Basic Medical Science. Could you tell us more About it?
Actually it is the toughest and Bravest course. It even posses threat to Medicine and Surgery and Pharmacy in general. In biochemistry we deal with the chemical substances that makes up the interior environment of any living organism be it plant, bacteria and humans. We deal in the genetic make up of an organism, i.e its DNA, RNA, genomes, nutrition, food makeups, tissues in the body, the human response to invasions from the external world, agricultural sector, industrial sector, drug design we also have hand in the laboratory practices. Invariably anything that has to deal with Life and the Ecosystem.

How can you Encourage Student Studying Biochemistry and what are the Tips you can also Give To Help Them
I would encourage everybody studying biochemistry to develop a passion for it, because biochemistry itself to some is not fun but through diligent effort and love for the course you will all see that the course is fun to study. Have a good study routine, make research ask questions watch Videos relating to the course engineer your thinking to always want to tutor your mate this would make you develop a craving to want to know more and lastly don’t let anybody discourage you that you can never pass or understand biochemistry.

What are the chanllenges you faced , Difficulties – Share your Experience and How Did you Overcome Them?

I faced little financial setbacks while in school and I tried my possible best this didn’t affect my educational pursuit. Although I felt it greatly during my examination periods , all this are now past tense. I always had difficulties passing Computer exams through the course of my study I had to study hard and pass the two CMP exams, I redoubled exertion and came out okay. We had to read and understand some of our courses as we had fewer classes before the exams this possed a lot of challenges for me, but it was a blessing in disguise as I had to read extra mile even out of the syllabus. This made me understand the courses better.

What are your aspirations & where Would you like to work?
If all things being Equal I would love to be A GENETIC ENGINEER working in research institute like NIMR, 54gene, FIIRO, etc.

How will you feel if you don’t graduate with First Class?
