CHM 101 will kill your spirit and crush your esteem | OAU graduate reacts to news of 16 year old OAU student who allegedly committed suicide

“My sister didn’t commit suicide, she was the best in her class” — Brother of 16 year old OAU student who allegedly committed suicide

Yesterday we posted a news on the death of one Mercy Olamide Afolaranmi, a student of Microbiology at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, who was said to have committed suicide for failing a course, CHM 101.

A graduate of the university, Grace, has reacted by posting this message on her Facebook page:

I just read a post about an 100 level student of O.A.U who committed suicide because she had an 'E' in a course.
I was curious about the course only to realize it was CHM 101.

If this is true then it's really unfortunate.
When I was in 100 level, we were told repeatedly that our gra-gra would go down when we see the result of our first test, which incidentally was CHM 101.
That course would kill your spirit, crush your esteem and make you doubt your intelligence. God knows I almost considered quitting school because I felt I was really dumb.
You would ask yourself if you really passed WAEC and JAMB cos of the ridiculousness of the scores you'd get.
I don't know how they manage to achieve it but it's been the culture over the years. Students fear 'white house'. Now it has come to this?
But seriously what do they expect from students that age, with probably no prior failing experience and low emotional intelligence

It's sad enough that it is the first test and exam result they would get in the university. Even sadder when you think about the time they go to Ajose just to secure a seat. Some go as early as 3am for an 8am lecture while some even sleep in there.
It's so sad
RIP dear


  1. Her death is still mysterious.I do not believe it was because of a course she failed that led to her death.Many have done such course and came out successful.

  2. Oba Awon University.The fear of White House is the beginnning of wisdom...but suicide is not the solution...

  3. This CHM 101 is just like the most dreaded FSS 101 in my school.
    I think it's high time the lecturer(s) in charge of that course is called to order.
    What nonsense! What's so difficult in a year one chemistry course? We gat so many wicked lecturers across Nigerian universities. Smh

  4. So unfortunate for d young girl
    May her soul rest in peace
