ALEXANDRA High School matriculants finished their English literature exam yesterday with a sigh of relief.

Matric students Lwandile Bhengu, Sonwabile Hlefane, Theolan Adimulam and Sinilindile Mabaso had different reactions to the paper but were all glad it was over.

Sinilindile said she found the exam difficult as it had so many questions to choose from she didn’t know what to do.

“It was hard but I feel good about it. Paper one was a lot more difficult,” said Sinilindile.

Sonwabile agreed with Sinilindile on the difficulty of the exam and said that it was difficult but not quite as hard as paper one.

“It was tough but I tried my best and I think I will pass.

“It wasn’t more difficult than paper one but there were some questions that were tricky in the way they were phrased,” said Sonwabile.

Lwandile agreed with his peers on the difficulty of paper one, but said paper two was definitely an easy exam for her.

“Paper one was dismal for me.”

“Everyone has told me they didn’t like paper two and it makes me feel like I did something wrong because I found it so simple,” laughed Lwandile nervously.

“I really enjoyed this paper. I cried in paper one because I didn’t finish but I feel really good about this exam.”

Lwandile said she was looking forward to he English writing exam as she enjoys writing and telling stories.

Theolan said the exam went well and felt that the school had prepared them for the paper as the exam questions were similar to those asked in school.

“We understood what we were writing. The questions were similar to our class questions.”

Theolan said he thought he would do well in the exam as it was “definitely better than paper one”.
