Rapper Drake has graduated high school at the age of 25.

The Canadian star dropped out of Toronto's Forest Hill Collegiate Institute as a teenager after landing an acting role on TV show Degrassi: The Next Generation, and he went on to pursue his love of music.

However, Drake hit the books over the summer (12) in a bid to complete his studies - and on Wednesday (17Oct12), he revealed to his Twitter.com followers he had passed his exams.

In a series of posts, he writes, "97 per cent on my final exam. 88 per cent in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!

"Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!!"
