Three Ghanaian teenage girls Katia Maame Dufie Osei, Afia Sarpong Frimpong and Isabelle Quaye have been admitted into Harvard, Yale and Massachusets Institute of Technology (MIT) respectively.
If you do not understand how impressive their achievement is, just note that only 4.59% for Harvard, 6.3% for Yale and 6.9% for MIT of applicants get admitted into these schools and that these girls scored higher than 99 percent of all SAT test takers across the world.
Katia and Afia are old students of the Wesley Girls High School in Cape Coast whiles Isabelle is from the Ghana International School (GIS).
Katia, who is 17 years old, did so well that apart from emerging as one of the 1,636 applicants out of 42,749 applicants who were admitted into Harvard University, she also got admissions from two other Ivy League schools – Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania.
Isabelle who has interest in engineering also performed so well that she got admissions from the California Institute Technology (CIT) which is the direct rival of MIT as well as the Princeton University, another one of the eight Ivy-league schools.
The three will be on full scholarships for the duration of their programmes which makes their admissions pleasing to hear.

Another interesting thing about the girls is the fact that they all prepared for the SAT at one place, AFEX Test Prep, an educational institute located in Accra, and they indefatigably made Ghana proud.
