One woman shared her journey of how she ended up doing her fifth year of medical school after obtaining a diploma in matric.

@rachel0305 took to her TikTok account to share a video, saying that getting a diploma in 2017 didn't mean the end of life for her.

Rachel said she got a diploma because she wasn't focused and was playing around often. The result disappointed her, and in 2018, she planned to rewrite it. However, things took an unexpected turn. She lost her dad and was not able to write.

In 2019, the young woman planned to continue with the rewrite, but the school principal advised her to return to school full-time. The plan made sense because waiting for the rewrite would also mean she would have to hire tutors to teach her during the year.

She returned to school full-time, obtained stunning results, and was enrolled in medical school in 2020.
