Award winning Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson, has stated that opting to go in for remedial classes to better failed papers after Senior High School (SHS) isn’t a good practice.
During an interview on Joy FM; she revealed that she got caught up in entertainment during her SHS days and it limited the time she had for her books.
According to her, failing and trying to make up for her grades by resitting the Nov/Dec exams was a daunting task; she wouldn’t wish that for any student.
“I would go on stage every Saturday in SHS. I had to rewrite some papers. I was so into entertainment that I didn’t take my schooling serious. You can easily mess up and not make it to university. I regret not paying attention to my books so when I see kids of today, I tell them to pay attention to their books,” she said.
The mother of one went ahead to stress on the relevance of paying heed to getting a good education; regardless of career path.
“I was in Central University. And it wasn’t easy mixing sets with classes. I had to make up my mind. It was tough. Nigerian producers were giving me juicy offers and I was torn between accepting these offers or not. But, I had to focus on school and I was so happy to have graduated, I didn’t want to defer,” she added.
