Victoria Matengu, Grade 8

Exams are stressful. I wrote history today and it was really difficult. I could not manage to finish all the questions. But I look forward to the rest of the exams.

Kenandjo Mupia, Grade 8

Our exams started pretty well and I hope that it can continue like that. Overall, I feel confident about the exams, although today’s exam was not the best.

Patience Nyirenda, Grade 10

I just came from my German exam, a listening one. The last questions were a bit difficult because there were certain words that I could not keep up with, but overall it was an okay exam.

Zawadie Smit, Grade 10

The German paper was challenging. German is not my first language, so it was tough. I could have done better if I had studied with understanding and if I had revisited my notes.

Jasmin Van Rooi, Grade 8

The thing that was really annoying about the exam, there was too much explaining that needed to happen, and a lot of paragraphs that needed to be written. There were not straightforward questions which confused me.

Tuapeia Hindjou, Grade 8

I had to read and once I started reading, I got confused. There were no questions that asked why Napoleon was assassinated. I had to look at the paper three times. For three hot seconds I did not know what to do, I could not ask questions. I was just wondering what am I supposed to do, my life was paining. I answered the questions I knew and the rest I used common sense.
