THE second physical science paper which matrics wrote yesterday was better than their first paper.

That is according to pupils from Northbury Park Secondary School who spoke to The Witness after their exam.

Sikhanyezo Nzuza (17) said, “The paper was okay because I managed to finish all the questions. I am planning on studying medicine next and my application has been approved at three universities which I am very grateful for.”

Athenkosi Nqedlana (18) said, “It was way better than paper one. We were better prepared for this paper. I live in a boarding house but my parents call me every day just to check if I am coping.”

Shweta Sewchurun (17) said, “The paper was challenging in some areas but compared to the first paper, this one was manage­able. It is mind over matter. You will achieve if you believe in yourself.”

Aathish Bhagwandhin (18) said, “Except for a few challenging questions, it was okay. Next year I am thinking of doing civil technology.”

Ana Khumalo (19) said, “It was better than paper one. This time around I was better prepared.

“Most of the papers I have written so far were fine apart from physical science paper one. Pupils should learn how to manage their time.”
