In conclusion, this is the breakdown of first-class, second-class, and third-class graduates in each department in OAU (2022) . while some departments like Accounting, law amongst others produced a high number of first-class while others like English, and microbiology produced a high number of second-class & third class graduates

Overall, it is important to note that the number of first-class, second-class, and third-class graduates in each department does not necessarily reflect the quality of education or the abilities of the students. Many factors, such as the difficulty of the program , the individual strengths and weaknesses of the students, can contribute to the breakdown of grades.

It is also worth considering that while a first-class degree may be highly coveted, it is not the only measure of success. Many successful individuals have achieved great things with degrees that are not classified as first-class, and it is important to recognize and celebrate the achievements of all students, regardless of their grades.
Just like Albert Einstein said “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

In the end, the most important thing is for students to strive for personal and professional growth, and to make the most of the education and opportunities available to them. Regardless of the final grades, the experience and skills gained at OAU will serve as a foundation for a fulfilling and successful future.
