He was disqualified from school after failing 14 resits, see how he finally made a 1st class

One of the most inspiring academic success stories you may likely come across is that of Emmanuel Nana Appiah Sam, a young man who went from zero to hero.

Emmanuel gained admission into Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana in 2010, to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture. He was supposed to graduate in 2014, for it’s a four-year Course.

However, due to a poor beginning at the University, the young man was unable to graduate with his mates in 2014. He had 14 resits (similar to carryover courses) and was given 4 semesters to rewrite them.

Emmanuel who was in a hurry to graduate took his chance by using only 2 semesters to rewrite those courses. But even after that, he fell below the pass mark of 40.00 required to qualify for a certificate from KNUST.

On November 2020, Emmanuel Nana Appiah Sam graduated with 1st class honours in BSc. Natural Resources Management and as one of the top 3 graduating students with GPA of 3.87.
