MATRICS yesterday enjoyed writing their Afrikaans paper 1, with many saying they expect nothing less than an “onderskeiding” (distinction)!
- NORTH WEST: Meridian Rustenburg Secondary pupils in Tlhabane near Rustenburg said they had a great time writing the paper.
Mosuli Thundeka (19) said it was an easy paper that included comprehension, summaries and language. He said he put a lot of effort into spelling and grammar as a preparation.
An excited Katlego du Toit (19) said: “This exam was the best. I’m positive of a distinction. Anything less and I’ll know they cheated me of my marks.”
Lungile Mkwanazi (18) said the paper was fair and she had an amazing two hours, while Unam Ngqongwa (18) also felt sure of a distinction, saying he finished well on time.
- KZN: Pinetown Girls High pupils were of a different opinion, saying even though they believed they would pass, they found the paper quite difficult.
Banele Khumalo (18) said: “Two hours was more than enough for us to answer all the questions but I couldn’t answer them all because some were too difficult.”
- FREE STATE: Judith Molorane (18) from C & N Sekondere Meisieskool Oranje in Bloemfontein said she had fun with the first paper. The pupil from Kagisanong kasi in Mangaung said: “It was very enjoyable. I even managed to notice the print errors on the paper but easily figured out what they wanted to say. I hope for no less than 80%.”
