The he­at is on

George Herald - - Briewe | Letters -

Al­most 800 000 Gra­de 12 le­ar­ners a­cross the coun­try star­ted wri­ting their 2018 Na­ti­o­nal Se­ni­or Cer­ti­fi­ca­te (NSC) fi­nal ex­a­mi­na­ti­ons on Tu­es­day 23 Oc­to­ber. In Ge­or­ge, e­ver­y­thing went off wit­hout a glitch, as all ar­ran­ge­ments we­re in pla­ce. The ma­tri­cs had to keep their cool for their first ex­am, En­g­lish Pa­per 1, as the Gar­den Rou­te ex­pe­rien­ced a swel­te­ring he­at wa­ve on Tu­es­day.

En­g­lish Pa­per 1 is the first ex­am of the fi­nals to be writ­ten by the ma­jo­ri­ty of the ma­tri­cs in the coun­try. En­g­lish pa­per 1 tes­ts com­pre­hen­si­on, sum­ma­ri­zing skills, vi­su­al li­te­ra­cy and lan­gua­ge in con­text.
