After writing their last paper on Tuesday, matric learners hugged one another to bid farewell across the country. They sat down writing English paper three, which marked their last day in high school.
Clifford Mabuza (17) from Leditjie High School said he was excited about finishing his examination. Although Cliford described Tuesday’s paper as “nice paper”, said it was not challenging as he had expected it.
“It was very easy and the content of the paper was not as challenging as I thought it would be. I am not planning to attend any pens down parties but I suggest rewarding myself by celebrating with my family because it has been a tough journey,” said Clifford.
Another clique of pupils seen by Sekhukhune Times chatting at the school’s gate said; “We are discussing to host a braai to celebrate the end of the examinations. This is the last time you see us in this school uniform. We will definitely miss high school,” telling the reporter.
“Walking into the examination venue for the last time is very emotional. I am determined to pass the matric. We all wanted to further studies at tertiary institutions,’ said Brenda Kgaphola, a proud grade twelve learner. “I can’t wait to see myself in tertiary next year studying Human Resources Management,” Brenda added.
Few learners are set to write Agricultural Science on Thursday and Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga is also set to announce the national matric results pass rate in January 2020, followed by the release of results to public the next day.
