A Midrand matriculant, who is one of the outstanding achievers for the class of 2018, has advised others to do what is required of them in school. - Sign up to receive your matric results and you could win R10 000!"I would say, just do the homework. You have to also help each other as friends, teachers and a community. Whatever it is, just support one another and do your work," Summit College pupil Moraswi Manyathela said on Wednesday.He emerged as a top achiever at his school, racking up six distinctions, with an average of 81%.Assistance from family and friends"Family and friends played a large role in keeping me motivated. They encouraged me to work harder and stick with whatever I was doing."Manyathela said calm washed over him when he realised he had been earmarked as an outstanding pupil."To be honest, a relief more than anything else. At this stage you're just glad that all the hard work and effort you put in [in] the beginning paid off."He said that his mother was his biggest source of support."This was more important for her than I think I could even begin to imagine. In primary, I was not doing that great. She spent a lot of late nights doing homework with me."He said that a solid regiment was important to his success. - See our Matric Results page."I firstly kept myself healthy. Exercise and spending time with people you care about is important. I would say I also focused on what exactly I would study. I did not go through textbooks blindly. There was a lot of planning and getting additional resources from friends who finished matric before me. This included past papers."'Just be a kid'He said there was a time in 2018 when his focus waned."There was a time when I started slacking off, naturally. But I stayed diligent, did the hard work and pushed through."He said that he also played a lot of soccer."You just have to do things in your spare time that shuts down your brain. Talk to people about different things. Just be a kid."He said he hoped to study law."I only decided this morning that I want to be a human rights lawyer. It is something relevant to young people. It’s a new world and there are lots of old lawyers out there."
