Mrs Dees Corner - Early Education Among University Graduates..

The days where graduates left school at the age of 25 and above are almost over. Nowadays, most graduands who you see convocating are majorly in their late teens or early twenties.


I used to take pride in the fact that I graduated from higher institution at the age of 21, till I saw others who were not only graduates at that age ,but also Masters degree holders.

Children of today are born smart right from the womb and I believe the prenatal supplements taken by the expectant mothers coupled with their choice of good food play a huge role in their brain and body developments unlike children who were born to uninformed parents who did not know or believe in adequately caring for the foetus/feti by religiously taking supplements and eating healthy food.

Vaccinations have greatly curbed if not totally eliminated the diseases that were common in infants before and posed a threat to their well being and growth. Now children rarely suffer from long term diseases and illness in infancy and the earlier they get enrolled in school, the better their opportunities at graduating early. 

Also, as a result of technological advancement, a lot of information is just a click away on computer and phone screens , which was not easily accessible for our predecessors during their learning era. So children of today are constantly improving on what they know or have learned.

It's very possible for the age bracket of graduates to further reduce with time as more improvements continue to take place in our technological and science world.


  1. Yeah very true. I graduated age 20 though I am grateful for that but I wish that I had entered the University a little later because when I gained admission I didn't fully understand why I was at the university until I was in 300 level..Its really different strokes for different folks..While some mature faster when they are done with school early, some really need to mature age wise before they fully understand why they need to study in the University..Yeah that's it..

  2. This actually came to my mind yesterday and I'm in total support of it... i'm very much grateful i graduated at 20 even though I spent 5 years in the university.... presently, I'm 26 and most of the people I work with are 30 years and above. Parents please once your child is 2, let them start school, there's absolutely nothing wrong about it

  3. Abeg make we talk true..parents also influence it. Imagine an 8 year old already in jss1. Some write waec & jamb from ss2, no beef because I did too. Moreover, going to a private Uni increases the chance of graduating early, afterall there's no ASUU to contend with.

  4. Wow...
    Very wonderful and organized write up.
    I love how penned down your points in an ordered manner.
    Meanwhile, as you rightly said, d age bracket will continue to decrease...

  5. No, you got it all wrong.
    In the 60s and early 70s, the economy was better
    and expectant mothers and kids ate better. The quality of
    education was better too, straight from the British. In those
    days, people were more honest, university age was 16 and nothing less.
    Today, they lie about their ages to enter school. They spend all days
    and nights on social media, and on tv watching BBN. tHEN THE teachers
    arrange "Alpha centers" where the entrance exams are fixed. proliferation of "private schools"
    have made it such that parents can actually pay the proprietors for grades for their kids and for
    quick promotions to classes they do not qualify for..
    This is happening live, as I have people who teach there.
    The western world is getting the message. In those days, you could walk from UNIFE or UNEC to a plum
    job in the UK. But today? None.
    I met a Nigerian lady in the states who is a graduate of English language, BA English from a Nigerian
    University. During Bible studies, she couldn't read a line in the English Bible, NIV. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    This is the sad reality. To think otherwise is the height of myopia. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍♀️

    1. You have said it all ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

    3. The truth! Moreover, these children are just rushed through the academic aspect, not the social aspect which affects them adversely, psychologically!

  6. This reminds me of myself. I finished uni at age 19, became a lawyer at 20, bagged my masters degree at 22. Everything seemed so fast and if felt like I was forced to grow up fast. I genuinely feel like I have been working all my life and not really had the opportunity to genuinely enjoy, it had been from one achievement to the other. My life did slow down after my masters abroad, took a while to obtain my law license in another country and it really made me appreciate God better. There are lots of advantages to graduating and working early but bottom line is whether you finish school early or late, grace is what matters. Just do you and ask for God’s guidance.

  7. Don’t forget that due to many more reliable private institutions there are no more strikes that delay you for a year or two.
