At school he had this friend Romio who was very clever always passing with As and what about him ? He could study day and night but it really didn't work for him. Then met her girlfriend Mandy thinking that she could try and teach her because he was also the best learners at school.

Then after a long time of extra classes it was then time for the June exams. Everyone were so prepared as this were the results to get them to universities. Their class teacher would always say that fail one fail all. Which touched Credrick as he was scared that he might disappoint others at his class.

Although he didn't loose hope due to her mother's words which were so encouraging to him. But his father was so disappointed saying that his results were not enough to get him to a university.
