Opting for remedial classes to sit for failed papers after Senior High School (SHS) isn’t a good practice, says actress Yvonne Nelson.
According to her, she got entangled in entertainment affairs during her SHS days that she limited time she had for books.
She explained that, failing and making time to re-sit for some papers after school was a herculean task and 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.
Ms Nelson stressed on the relevance of paying heed to climbing the educational ladder 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 the 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.
