WITH one of their pupils in the top 20 nationally, Maritzburg College has over 12 pupils who received either seven or more distinctions for their matric final exams.

Some of Maritzburg College’s top achievers expressed excitement and relief, knowing they had done very well in their final exams and the wait for their marks was finally over.

With eight distinctions, College pupil Brendon Anderson said that he had been hoping to get good marks, but had not fully expected to.

“I had studied quite hard. I did more preparation than normal,” he said.

Brendon said he would be studying animal science at the University of Pretoria and hoped to then study veterinary science.

Another College matriculant, Ryan Hodgson, also achieved eight distinctions, saying he was “a touch surprised”.

He said that he had tried not to expect good marks as it was never a good idea to expect things, but knowing he had done well was a relief.

Ryan said he would be studying a business science degree at the University of Cape Town and was excited to start studying something he loved and had a passion for.

Another College pupil, Rajvir Rajaram, received seven distinctions. He said it was a relief to know he had done so well.

Rajvir has applied to study actuarial science at the University of Pretoria and said he was excited for the year ahead.

Muhammad Essa also did College proud with seven distinctions.

“My parents pushed me to work hard and were very supportive during my matric year.”

Muhammad will be studying medicine at the University of Cape Town.

College’s Godfrey twins both received seven distinctions for their exams.

Michael and James Godfrey will both be studying at the University of Pretoria, however, the twins will be taking different career paths.

“Michael will be studying accounting and I will be studying a science degree,” said James.

Another top achiever, Thabiso Madlala, received seven distinctions and will be studying civil engineering at the University of Pretoria.

Daniel Charters received eight distinctions and said it was rewarding that the hard work had paid off.

Daniel will be studying industrial engineering at the University of Pretoria.
