However, it is regarded as a thing of shame when a person has to repeat a class and their peers have to go ahead without them. Many parents do not take this lightly and resort to reminding the student at every opportunity while shaming them for it.

Explaining further in her tweet, Alexxsiaa said she found it strange that family members stigmatised a person who needed to repeat a class to get better academically.

In her words:

“We need to remove the stigma around repeating academic years...if a person needs to repeat a year to be more academically stable it’s weird to me that others and family make them feel bad for that”
