Good luck to all our Grade 4 – 7 learners for the forthcoming exam.
- Have all necessary materials with you – you can’t borrow items during the exam.
- Have a relaxing night before your exams – have an early night and eat a healthy breakfast.
- Read the entire paper – where you have choices, decide which ones you plan to answer.
- Plan your time – spend some time drafting a plan for the questions you choose to answer.
- Jot down ideas as they come to you – while you are answering one question, information about another may suddenly occur to you. Jot it down, you might need it later.
