AFTER the long and challenging maths paper yesterday, some matrics were comforted by the geography paper, which they say was relatively easy and basic.
- MPUMALANGA: Pule Nkadimeng (19) and his classmates at King Makhosonke II Secondary School in Moloto Village said geography paper 1 was easy.
Pule said: “The paper was good. Question one nearly gave me a problem but I managed to answer it. I will definitely pass this one.”
Osiame Sebola (18) enjoyed writing the paper.
“I am going to kill this one because it was very easy.
“I prepared very well and I am going to get a distinction.”
Nkosinathi Jiyane and Lefa Makola, both (19), said they answered all questions with ease.
“We are very sure that we are going to pass it. It was as easy as ABC, nothing tricky,” said Nkosinathi.
“No question was challenging because we studied very hard.”
- FREE STATE: Pupils from Mangaung also found the paper easy.
Zinny Mofolo (19) from Petunia High School said: “The paper was not bad.
“It covered the work that we did. Plus we had to use our general knowledge. I am confident I’ve passed.”
Victoria Thompson (18), also from Petunia, said: “The paper wasn’t difficult as I thought it would be. The teacher helped us before our exams. I want to study IT next year.”
- EASTERN CAPE: Pupils said both papers – maths paper 1 on Friday and paper 2 yesterday – were challenging but they did their best.
“Friday it was maths paper 1 and today paper 2. The papers were tricky. I’m just hoping I’ve passed,” said one pupil from Sterkspruit Senior Secondary school.
“Well, I’m crossing fingers. I think it was a bit unfair to write two maths papers in such a short space of time.”
