Ghanaian ratafarian student Tyron Marghuy, who became famous for his legal battle with Achimota School over his dreadlocks, made headlines after he posted the results of his West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE), where he made 8As studying General Science.
A video capturing the moment he checked his results online with friends went viral on social media, garnering congratulations from many for his academic achievement.
During an interview sighted on (formerly Twitter), on his journey to attaining such a milestone, he revealed that he didn’t use a calculator while writing his favourite subject, Core Maths paper, a statement that has set tongues waging on the internet as some users believe it is a struggle to make a C6 even while they work with a calculator.
“My favourite is math, so, at some point, I didn’t want to mention it. For the core math, I didn’t use a calculator. My thing is that with the way I love math, I want it to be memorable so that one day, if I sit down, I will say, you know, Tyron, you did try your best,” he said.
Tyron Marghuy, a Ghanaian student, gained widespread recognition due to his legal battle with Achimota School over his dreadlocks. In 2021, he faced an initial denial of admission to the school, citing his hairstyle as a violation of the institution’s rules.
Marghuy, along with another Rastafarian student, Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea, took legal action against the school, alleging discrimination and violation of their human rights.
The High Court ruled in their favour, mandating the school admit them.
However, Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea eventually secured a scholarship to enrol at Ghana International School, while Tyron Marghuy joined Achimota School.
Remarkably, Marghuy sat for his end-of-term examination mere hours after being admitted, marking a significant chapter in his journey.
