Physical science: pupils have Mixed feelings on paper

2012-10-26 00:00

“IT was messed up.” This is how one of the matrics who wrote physical science yesterday described the paper.

Gigi Kabera from Alexandra High School said the paper was “tricky” and different compared to the previous ones.

Saish Sewraj said it was unexpected, but said he was confident he had passed.

“I managed to finish and am ready for chemistry on Monday,” Saish added.

Others said it was just okay.

Mandisa Mkhize and Inga Ncanywa from Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High said yesterday’s paper wasn’t bad and they had enough time to answer all the questions.

“I finished the first section within 15 minutes,” Inga told The Witness as she laughed.

She said the three hour paper could have easily been finished in two-and-a-half hours. The girls said they were well prepared after practising and studying previous papers.

Inga said the trial exam was harder.

“I’m so glad that I’m done with physical science for the rest of my life,” Mandisa told her friends. She is planning to study Business Science.
