Advice for the Matric class of 2015

JOHANNESBURG – If it’s your final year at school, hard work should get you through, say some of last year’s top performing matrics.

Here are some tips from matrics who passed well:

“Work hard every day. I did my homework every day and listened to teachers in class. During exams I tried to sleep a lot so I could be calm and not make stupid mistakes.” — Sigourney Lishman

“I want to tell them to be calm and collected — they don’t have to panic. They should, however, work very hard and put more effort into their studies — then everything will work out for them.” — Mpho Moshasha

“You have to start the day the schools open and study, study, study. Get rid of your phone: it doesn’t matter. All that matters is the end of year result.” — Yvonne Punandi

“I think the most important thing is not to waste time. Matric is such an important year, for so many reasons. You have your Matric dance, your 18th and you also have to write Matric. It’s only a year and it goes really fast actually because you’re busy 24/7.” — Daniel Erasmus

Professor Ruksana Osman, dean of humanities at the University of the Witwatersrand, says if pupils want to attend university, they need to start the hard work already in Grade 10 and 11. In terms of studying for exams, it is crucial to be consistent. The way you study is an important attitude to develop, she said.

“Students should give themselves time and work out when is the best time for them to study. Some enjoy early morning, some late at night; some like to study in groups and some like to study alone. The important issue is find what works for you and then stay consistent,” she explained.

In terms of study routines, Osman recommends the following:

  • Students should engage critically with their work. Avoid parrot-fashion learning or rote learning.
  • Time management is vital in taking charge of your own learning.
  • Aim to understand what you are learning.

Can you study more than one subject in a day?

“It’s important to break down the work to be covered into small, manageable chunks. Once this is done, it does not matter whether you studying three subjects on the same day or just one.

“The important thing is making the work manageable and then giving the work enough time.”
