Ten of the best for Gauteng pupil

A Gauteng school girl produced an outstanding performance in the

Independent Examination Board’s (IEB) matric exams to be top achiever at her

school with 10 distinctions.

Ageliki Vidalis, of Saheti school got a full house of distinctions

in Advanced Programme Mathematics, Afrikaans, English, Geography, Life

Orientation, Mathematics (96%), Mathematics P3 (99%), Modern Greek, Physical

Sciences and Visual Arts.

Ageliki has been named as an Outstanding Achiever, being ranked

within the top 5% of all IEB learners in six or more subjects.

She was also ranked in the top 1% of IEB learners in English,

Geography, Life Orientation, Mathematics P3 and Modern Greek.

Reached for comment while holidaying in Athens, Greece, Vidalis

said: “I worked quite hard. I kept up with all the work, stayed in form with

what was going on with the lessons. I also attended all the tutorials and

workshops.

“Our teachers also prepared us very well for the exams. We made

sure we completed the syllabus quite early, by April we were done. There was a

lot of time left for practising, doing past papers and consolidating with our

own work.”

She intends being an actuary and her destination is Wits

University. Vidalis said she chose actuarial science because you dealt with risk

taking and predicting the future through mathematics.

The Saheti school scored 138 distinctions in the IEB exams, while

maintaining a 100% pass rate.

Of the 65 pupils, 89% achieved a bachelor’s degree pass (university

exemption), 68% earned distinctions, with 45% achieving multiple

distinctions.

Executive head of the school, Anastasia Krystallidis, attributes

these successes to “the self motivation of pupils and the commitment of the

academic staff who have nurtured and enhanced individual learning paths of each

candidate, ensuring that inherent ability and potential in each pupil is

developed”.
