The United Democratic Movement congratulates the matric class of 2017 for staying the course and, staying in school! Pursuing education will give you significantly more options over the course of your life.
Set goals and work hard to achieve them. Past question papers, available on the Department of Education’s website, can help you gauge your preparedness and identify subjects that need more work. Manage you time well and be well rested before writing a test by sleeping seven to eight hours the preceding night.
You may be stressed, tired and get distracted, but stay focussed, work hard and persevere. Your success is the country’s success, for you will lead tomorrow and take South Africa forward.
As James Allen says about a positive attitude: “Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results”.
