Pietermaritzburg - Matric pupils sat for their business studies paper on Thursday, which Kharina Secondary pupils described as “easy”.

Cherika Persaram (17) said the paper was easier than expected and she wished she could re-write maths. “We have been told about the fake notice circulating saying we will re-write it. I so wish it was real.”

Zizipho Mbooi (17) said he was ­expecting business studies to be a lot harder, and would not mind re-writing my geography paper. He said he did panicked a bit and answered questions he did not plan to answer. He advises pupils in Grade 11 to get a study tactic.

Angel Thundela (19) spent four days preparing for business studies and said her hard work paid off.

“I would not mind re-writing my maths paper, not that I did badly in it, but I wish I had spent more time practising. Pupils should study like it’s the end of the world. Gather as many past papers as you can; they work wonders.”

Teneel Harryparsad (17) said, “The paper was fair with no unexpected ­questions. My family has been very supportive, especially my mother. I am given time to study.”

Smanga Khoza (17) said, “ Today’s paper was long. Given the chance, I would re-write accounting and English. I believe I could have done a lot better in those two papers. My family has been supportive, they always want to know what I am writing, and if I am prepared.”
