Summary of “The Last Days at Forcados High School” for 2015/2016 UTME Candidates

“The Last Days at Forcados High School” by A.H. Mohammed tells the story of Jimi Solade, the most popular boy at the elite Forcados High School.

As he begins his final year in senior secondary together with his friends, the sweet-hearted and devout Nene and Ansa, the nerdy art genius, he’s determined it’s going to be his best year yet.

But Jimi’s rogue brother, Wole, is back – which means trouble can’t be far behind.

Then there’s Efua, the beautiful and mysterious new girl in class who seems to have no time for boys – including Jimi. But when Jimi’s mother falls ill, he realizes that things are about to change - and not
necessarily in a good way.

A funny and honest book about self-discovery, family, friendship, tolerance and the highs and lows of life as a modern Nigerian teenager. Told in straightforward
language, A.H. Mohammed never talks down to readers.

Instead, Last Days stands out with its realistic situations, original characters and deft storytelling. It is at once entertaining and deadly serious, tackling a range of difficult issues including drug
abuse, discrimination and loss, with intelligence and great writing.

It's for free after paying for the jamb scratch card for 5000 at various banks. To get yours make sure you register at a computer based centres only like AfriHub. If you register at a cyber cafe, you will pay more than that and also won't get the book (most of them) because they are not authorised to register people...

  • kayceo2010: Hmmm.. Cut off kwa.. I really think that anyone going for any of these professional and difficult course should and must not think about cut off marks.. Just write to pass others and be among the highest. I can't really tell you any particular mark you must reach before you get pharmacy cos it depends on the performance of everybody... READ more than others and you'll succeed.

  • kayceo2010: The successor is actually not as interesting as Potters Wheel but people go for it first because of the size. The successor somehow becomes confusing at the end with the appearance of names you've not heard of since you started reading. Potters Wheel is just exceptional. Don't look at the size. It's more interesting than the successor. Don't know about this Last days at..........

Chapter One

It was early in the morning and

still dark when

Jimi Solade woke up to someone

shaking him

roughly. He groaned and

mumbled to himself, half

asleep.

'Jimi!' He jerked fully awake at

the sound of that

familiar voice, it was is his

brother.

'Wole!' Jimi said in surprise.

'Yes , it's me' and his brother

smiled in a way

that showed only his upper

teeth.

'Man! What…?' Jimi began. They

stared at each

other, delighted.

'No greeting , little bro?' Wole

smiled again.

'Sorry, but does anyone know

you're here? Does

Daddy…?' Jimi did not complete

the sentence;

instead he embraced his brother

tightly,'I've

missed you!'

Wole was thinner. Jimi could feel

it.

'Mum knows I'm here," Wole

said. He too did not

mention their father. Just then,

the alarm clock

sounded. It was time for Jimi to

get up, and he

released his brother.

'Go on, get ready for school,'

Wole said,

stretching on the bed. 'At least

you seem happy

to see me.' He looked round the

room at the

carelessly flung shirts, jeans and

boxer shorts

over the chair, to the poster of

the Manchester

United football team on the wall

above Jimi's

bed. A typical boy's room.

Another worn-out

poster of Tupac Shakur was

pasted on the

opposite wall.

'I didn't remove it even though

it's an eyesore,'

Jimi said, grinning. 'Everything's

is just as you

left it.'

Wole squeezed Jimi's arm lightly.

He picked up

something on the bedside table

beside Jimi's

music CDs, chemistry and

mathematics

textbooks. 'Man, this is some

watch. Must have

cost a mountain. You always get

all the nicest

things, why…?'

'Wole, don't touch my watch.'

'What's your problem? Can't look

at a watch?'

'I'm sorry bro,' Jimi muttered.

'I'm glad to see

you back – really – but,, you

know…'

'My cute, spoiled little brother…

You grow taller

every time I see you.' Wole got

up walked

towards the door. 'Don't worry

about the old

bear. Better get ready for

school. Er- I took some

cash from your drawers, hope

you don't mind.

Sighing, Jimi plodded to the

bathroom. Trust his

brother to always collect things,

but he was

happy he was back. It was a

new day and the

beginning of his final school

year. Like his

brother, he was as tall and long-

limbed as an

athlete, though, unlike his

brother, he had dimples

when he smiled. He was sixteen

years old and he

was already sprouting a beard.

He flexed his right

arm noting that he had

developed muscles. Good.

He whistled as he took his

shower, refusing to

think about the morning's

surprise. The reason

why was long story; too long to

think about on a

brand new day.
