With the National Senior Certificate exam nearing, you are entering one of the hardest, most challenging and arguably the most important period of your lives – the build up to your final examination.
In these last few weeks, it is important that you have a solid plan to help you in preparing for the biggest test of your school career, which will allow you to perform to the best of your ability.
My advice to you is :
1. Focus on the content of your work. Look at all your subjects and all materials you need to study.
2. Clear your mind and programme of any issue that could distract you from optimal learning.
3. Make use of every available time
4. Every paper counts - even the easier ones counts, and you have to give your best right until the end.
5. Remember, the end of Nov will arrive in due course, and with it the end of your school career. Right now the only thing that should matter is that you earn the very best marks you can right until you put your pen down.
6. After you put in your best effort, you will really deserve your new freedom and enjoy it more.
From me and my entire Senior Management and staff, our best wishes for all of you. You are the shining stars of our Country. South Africa is alive with possibilities.
