- Francis Elive, a 55-year-old teacher, has been praised as a hero after leading his student to clear their GSCE exam
- Also known as The Maths Whisperer, he ensured his student study well for the exam as some of them had 100% score
- On the day the result came in, the students created a memorable event out of it all as they opened it at the same time
Francis Elive, who is popularly known as The Maths Whisperer, has proved himself a hero to his students after he led them to the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GSCE) exam six months early.
The pupils of Fitzalan High School in Leckwith, Cardiff, did not only write the exam but they got top grades, Daily Mail reports.
Elive, aged 55, has been praised for the way he teaches and the passion he brings into the profession.
The most memorable encounter came when the students opened their results at the same time and realised they all had the same score.
“We did a countdown so they all opened their results at the same time. There was a gasp as they saw their results and then all realised they had the same,” assistant headteacher Jo Kemp said.
It should be noted that he taught the whole class since when they were in year 7. His nickname “The Maths Whisperer” came from the fact that some of his students even got full marks in the exam.
In talking with the media about the success story, he said that there is no secret method and that all his students only swotted up.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that Nigerian Abiola Orimolade has made the nation proud as he graduated with an excellent MBA degree at Sul Ross State University, Texas.
Abiola started as a normal student and had to write JAMB four times to get into his dream university.
In an interview with the media, he said his parents said he was quite independent at a very young age, saying he wanted to become an engineer like his father. He said what stopped him was his hatred for chemistry and physics.
In 2019, he became the most outstanding student at the American university. He said that the hard work he put into the looking for admission eventually paid off as he graduated with distinction from Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU).
