We took Uzorma to WinA Tutors in year 9 when he was on the verge of being removed from his school. They assessed him and realised he was indeed a bright boy but had been under-challenged in school hence the difficult behaviour. The proprietor suggested we prepare and enter him for a private science GCSE exam to give him a challenge. To everyone’s surprise, Uzorma scored a 100% in the core biology paper!
Realising that he had this potential, he turned his attitude to work around, improved his behaviour, was elected the head boy of his school, Crown Woods School and left with trail-blazing 10 A/A* grades including Maths, Science & English.
Uzorma then gained a sixth-form IB scholarship with Christ’s Hospital Independent School in Horsham from which he went on to win the prestigious Morehead Cain Scholarship, a four-year merit scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with full tuition, fees and all expenses paid.
