  1. He is named Mjolnir Messiah after all, he has come to deliver and provide blessings to his people. Congratulations to him.

  2. Congrats to Mr Messiah.
    This kid is bright. He will pass 30 subjects if he took that many.
    But we have to understand that he is unusual.
    There is no need for students to be taking that large number of subjects. It is unnecessary. It causes a lot of troubles for many other students whose parents are forcing them to be another Messiah. These students usually end up with all types of mental problems.
    Allowing a kid to be writing 12 to 21 subjects shows a deficiency in the current CXC system for examinations. Most of them cram for these subjects and don’t have a clue what they are about one month after the exam. The whole exam system looks like a pappyshow, and confirms the thought that it is all about the dollars. Parents, even teachers, ease up on the children. Stop forcing them to take subjects that they can’t handle just because if they pass you will look good. Let them focus on what they can handle. It is not about you. You are not sitting in that exam room with the pressures.
    Stop living your life through your children. One thing that comes to mind. Is Mr Messiah well rounded? Does he play any sport with any degree of proficiency? Has he enjoyed his school life, or was he chained to his books?
    Just asking.
