The quiz mistress of the popular National Science and Maths Quiz, Professor Elsie Effah Kaufmann has recounted how she felt when she scored her first zero mark in school.
The renowned educationist who is a Biochemical Engineer made this known in a recent interview on YFM’s Myd-Morning show hosted by Rev. Erskine.
According to the quiz mistress, it is normal for a student to score a zero mark in school adding that one has to re-strategize and make it better afterwards.
Speaking in the interview, she said;
“We went for Physics class and Professor Plummer, who was our first year, first semester Physics teacher came to class and said: ‘I’m giving you an exam under Diagnostic’. He had not taught anything yet and said this was going to be a common thing; these quizzes are going to be quantized so you’ll get zero, one or two and I think it was truly up to two.
I remember I had never had a zero in my life. That was my first zero. I looked at that paper and I asked myself how. After crying and agonizing, I decided to re-strategize so I said ‘Professor Plummer, you will not see my tears ever again’. That meant I had to study ahead, do assignments, and go to every class prepared.”
