Popular tweep, @kulanicool, consistently shares videos that end up going viral. Now, he's done it again with a new video showing a student who attends the Tshwane University of Technology receiving 0/50 for a test.
The video shows a lecturer handing out marked test exam papers to his students. As luck would have it, the test paper with the poor results is the closest to the camera and you can clearly see the big zero.

Man who failed in school graduates from varsity with 27 distinctions
In other related news, Briefly News reported on Xolani Mzileni, 26, from Katlehong, who has an amazing story of how he struggled in school, failing at one point, to eventually end up with 27 distinctions from varsity.
He is currently attending a Master's course in Operations Management at the University of Johannesburg. His childhood was not easy, growing up in a township with very little in the way of services, no running water, healthcare facilities, proper housing and other essential services.
He began to realise his academic potential in Grade 11, which he failed. Briefly.co.za learned that instead of giving up, Xolani repeated Grade 11 and eventually matriculated in 2013. He took a gap year from studying to sort out an issue with his ID book and worked as a day labourer.
His dream was to attend university and help the community. He joined a tutoring programme in his community and taught life sciences and geography.
He decided to try applying for university and was successful and got a spot at the University of Johannesburg and enrolled in a diploma in a Management Services course.
