Nairobi Man Who Returned to Form 3 After Scoring D- in KCSE Lands Well-Paying Job After Graduating as a Nurse

Despite facing significant hurdles throughout his high school experience, Abdulrahman Banza defied expectations, transitioning from a struggling student to a successful nurse within the country.

During his tenure in high school, Abdulrahman regarded himself as an average academic performer but excelled notably in sports, particularly rugby.

However, his final year took an unforeseen twist when he and his teammates found themselves suspended without clear justification, following allegations of involvement in a strike plot supposedly led by the rugby team.

Despite his innocence, Abdulrahman was subject to punishment alongside his teammates, leaving him profoundly disheartened.

Over the two-week suspension period, Abdulrahman’s academic prospects hung precariously, throwing his educational trajectory into uncertainty.

Ultimately permitted to return to school, Abdulrahman faced the challenge of repeating Form 3 and sitting for his final exams separately from his peers.

Rather than surrendering to despair, Abdulrahman embraced the adversity as an opportunity for personal growth and improvement.

The experience of repeating two years in high school underscored the importance of persistence and resilience in overcoming obstacles.

Reflecting on his journey, Abdulrahman shared, “I managed to achieve a B- of 59 points, and notably scored a straight A in my weakest subject, Mathematics,” as reported by TUKO.CO.KE.

Post high school, Abdulrahman embarked on his path by pursuing nursing studies at KMTC Murang’a.

Despite encountering challenges in securing employment post-graduation, Abdulrahman remained steadfast in his pursuit and eventually secured a volunteer position at RFH Healthcare.
