The sad story of a student who missed his exams has attracted a lot of reactions. A student missed his exam paper after he arrived late at the venue because he mixed up the time.
The young man known on Twitter as @4evertoxiclagosng recounted how he ended up going for an exam 7 hours late.
According to him, the exam was fixed for 8 am but he thought he would be writing it around 3 pm so he stayed at to home to read intensely. Sadly, none of his classmates called him in the morning when they did not see him in the exam hall, it was when he went in the afternoon that he learned they’d already sat down for the exam.
“Thought my paper was for 3 pm, didn’t know it was for 8 am and I was at home reading seriously for past questions”.

Zinota reacted: There was a time I always went to events late and I had to put an end to it cos it isn’t a cool thing to do.
Gentle Lion wrote: I can relate. They changed exam time and not everyone was aware see people turning up with house clothes and girls without makeup. Nigerian universities self.
Moore Amor: I had a carryover for this reason. The exam was rescheduled from the afternoon to the morning so I took my time. Didn’t have permanent seatmates so no one called. Met my coursemate outside school fanning herself with question paper.
