It all depends on the family.

My dad is a professor, all my sisters have their second degrees, so when I eventually graduate it won't really matter, in fact there won't be any convocation party.

So it all boils down to family records, your rank(I'm the sixth born) and environment.

CGPA also does matter, a first class candidate will always be celebrated in most cases

If you were truly a graduate, you wouldn't be asking such a question

Bolt2011: If you were truly a graduate, you wouldn't be asking such a question
then you as the graduate why not answer his question?
how does one become truly or untruly a graduate?
graduate of/from/in what?
typical nigerian moronic semi educated fellow.

@OP
i suggest you visit your dictionary for the meanings of the word graduate, then you wouldn't ask such a question based on nigerian mentality(perception of the word graduate). One can graduate from a high school, nursing school, catering school, sports academy, even technical schools. not necessarily uniben/unilag as most nigerians think. if you are aware of this fact, then there would be no sense in asking "what is special"

My dear!
The tin don tire me! And to think that so many so-called graduates make this mistake!
They mistake there for their,
Here for hear,
Where for were
These for this
Waist for waste
Write for right
Proof for prove. Etc. Reading and comprehending simple essays has become a big problem now.
The level of education just keeps diminishing everyday. I wonder if there's still hope for our future generation. So pathetic!

Those that are calling you graduate believed you've done so well and appreciate you for that, but, if you don't feel esteem about it, then your is not your achievement came not from your hard work.
