LEARN­ERS writ­ing their na­tional se­nior cer­tifi­cate ex­am­i­na­tions have ex­pressed op­ti­mism of do­ing well.

The ZO caught up with some ma­tric­u­lants of Dover Com­bined Farm School, who were up­beat about their chances of ex­celling in the ex­ams.

Mbali Nk­wanyana, who has al­ready writ­ten tour­sim, IsiZulu and English pa­pers, de­scribed them as easy.

‘Tourism did give me a tough time, but I’m look­ing for­ward to the other pa­pers,’ she said.

Thobani Nt­shangase, who has writ­ten IsiZulu, math­e­mat­ics and English said the pa­pers have not been easy, but chal­leng­ing.

‘Math­e­mat­ics has been the most chal­leng­ing. I had to be at my very best,’ he said.

Asande Xulu said the math­e­mat­ics, IsiZulu and English pa­pers have been what he ex­pected.

‘I don’t see my­self get­ting any­thing less than 70% in all the pa­pers I have writ­ten so far,’ he said.

Mx­olisi Dube said the exam has been good so far.

Anele Luthuli, who has writ­ten IsiZulu, English, life ori­en­ta­tion and math­e­mat­ics said even though the pa­pers had been chal­leng­ing, she is con­fi­dent all went well.

Since the com­mence­ment of the ma­tric exam, no ma­jor in­ci­dents have been re­ported, and ac­cord­ing to ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cials the exam has been run­ning smoothly so far.
