Matrics look forward to life after last maths exam

2014-11-04 00:00

MATRIC pupils at Carter High School expressed relief after writing their final mathematics paper yesterday.

Maths core student Siyanda Dlamini said yesterday’s paper was a lot more challenging than the first maths paper.

“It was terrible,” admitted Dlamini, who said she looked forward to life now knowing she would never write a maths paper again.

Andre Manser and Carlson Boucher, who wrote the maths literacy paper, said it had been nerve-racking and they were glad it was over.

“I am relieved. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

“It’s all exciting, but I am nervous to get my results. I will probably get a B,” said Manser.

Boucher said that while his second maths paper was more difficult than the first, he nevertheless hoped for good results.

“I was quite nervous at first, but as we started writing, I become more confident; the paper wasn’t too bad.”

Mazibuko, who wrote the core maths exam, said she found yesterday’s exam much easier than the first maths paper, although it had not been without its difficult sections.

“The statistics section was tricky and circle geometry was challenging, as was trigonometry, but the other sections were quite clear.

“I think I’ll do well,” said Mazibuko with a smile.

With their last maths paper behind them, matrics have their English literature exam on Thursday to prepare for.
