News anchor and journalist Nana Aba Anamoah has revealed that she has never in her life made grade A in school. She said her best grade was a B, and she made this grade only once.
The eloquent newsreader posited that she thinks her intelligence quotient (IQ) is below average. For this reason, she said as a student, she failed many subjects in school especially Mathematics and Science.
“I think my IQ is below average- way below average and When I see people crying because they had failed certain courses, I say to them, ‘Are you mad?’ Do you know the courses, me as I’m standing here, I have failed?
I hate school and that’s a fact, I don’t like school. I like to go to school to listen to the teacher but the moment you say examination, oh God, I hate examinations.
Because for some reasons, in my life, I never made an ‘A’…oh even B, I think it was just once. I swear to God. B was just once,” she told University of Ghana students at an interaction section with practitioners who have excelled their career field during this year’s Career Week celebrations organized by the Careers and Counseling Centre.
The situation she said got her father worried and at a point, he ask her if she needed to see counselor. “At some point my father asked me, do you have to see a counselor?” She said.
