Matrics feel good about exams and the holidays
THE END is in sight for matric pupils who the past month have dedicated time and energy to the most important exams of their school career.
The national senior certificate exam enters its final week on Monday, and most pupils have just one or two papers to write.
Ashleigh Thompson of Wynberg Girls High said she still faced English paper three and history paper two.
Speaking to Weekend Argus after her Afrikaans paper two this week, Ashleigh said she was excited about having made it this far.
“I am very excited, I look forward to a nice well-deserved break from next week on”. She described the papers she had already written as “manageable”.
“I don’t usually want to talk about how a paper was, I don’t want to jinx it. But overall it was okay,” she said.
After the exams she and her family were going to Mauritius and would be back in time for the results announcement by Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga on January 5, 2016.
After Afrikaans second paper, English paper three is all that is left for Tamsyn Gaynor, another Wynberg pupil.
She was relieved the exams were nearly over. “It has been a tough year, I worked hard. Now I will have time to see friends and family who are coming to visit us during the holidays”.
The last exam papers, visual arts and music paper two will be written on Friday.
