U-TECH’S BEST DISAPPOINTED NOT TO GET SEVEN DISTINCTIONS
Despite having been listed amongst the best performing pupils in Eswatini, Thando Pearl Fakudze is not really impressed by her achievement.
Thando accumulated six distinctions and one credit, making her the second best at UTech High School.
Speaking shortly after getting her results, Thando disclosed that she was not entirely happy about her results as she was aiming for seven distinctions. “I fell sick during the exams, and I believe this affected my performance,” she said. Nonetheless, Thando said she appreciated her results, and would be going for the best career that she can get out of what she has in hand.
When asked on how she prepared for the examinations, Thando said she preferred studying alone at her own pace.
She attributed her good performance to former principal Mavela Shongwe, whom she described as a visionary leader who always wanted the best for all pupils.
“The principal was always there to hear our complaints and took us as a priority,” she said. Thando said she hopes to undertake a course in Economics overseas.
“I am looking at countries such as Germany or France for an Economics course,” said the shy looking girl.
