Legit.ng notes that Agnes said reading at intervals, taking breaks and sleeping at the right time helped her achieve the feat.
“If you have an examination, I feel that you don’t have to burn the midnight oil because if you have been working hard from day one, there is no reason to read extra hard the night before the exam.”
The head girl of Louisville Girls High School, Ijebu-Itele in Ogun state, says a simple method worked for her to achieve success.

Legit.ng previously reported that Agnes is one of the beautiful minds the country is blessed with. She said she wants to study engineering at university where she will be able to apply mathematical concepts to help solve societal issues.
