Iriel-Jaine Olivier, 18, Sanctor High School
"I prepared for this exam over two weeks. The only difficulty I had was the part about electricity, because that is not my strong point. Otherwise everything else was fine."
Stanley Bergens, 18, Sanctor High School
"To be honest if one studied hard, this was going to be a walk in the park. I had difficulties when it came to momentum and electricity. That is where I got stuck."
Nabeela Daniels, 18, Westville Senior Secondary School
"I wish they could have had less on electricity and more on everything that we read but was not there. I enjoyed the momentum – that is where I always score my marks."
Enrique Gallant, 18, Bethelsdorp High School
"They did not try to trick us too much. It was not as tricky as it was in the trials. I enjoyed writing about momentum and the electricity part was better than in the trials."
Dylan Seliki, 19, Bertram High School
"The paper was fine. For me the momentum was easy and a little better than our trial exams. I hope chemistry will even be greater."
Luzuko Jafta, 18, Kwazakhele High School.
"The paper was hard and very tricky. I think one of the hardest parts was understanding English. But none the less I did study for it."
Tamara Mathethe, 18, Kwazakhele High School
"The paper was hard, the questions were unusual which put even more pressure on me. But the study groups I am attending will surely pay off. I will see on paper two."
Thobelani Tyandela, 18, Loyiso High school
"The challenging part for me in the paper was question six and the way questions were structured. Other questions were straightforward and precise."
Vuyokazi Cakhwebe, 17, Ndzondelelo High School
"I am confident that I did well only because I know the basics of science. My teachers helped me a lot together with the support I get at home."
