There are also different types of passes when it comes to your matric certificate it is important that you what each matric pass requires of you.
  • Plan Your Studies: Planning is the first step on the road of success. This is something that everyone should take to heart. You need to start planning when you are going to study for what exams. This will stop you from being caught off guard and not having time to study for your subjects. The first thing you need to do is find out when all your exams are and plot them out accordingly.
  • Practice old papers:  While practising with examples can be extremely useful, it is not as useful doing the actual exam papers from previous years.

  • Start Now!: This seems like a very simple idea, yet this is the one tip that can make the most difference. The earlier you start studying, the better you will do in your exams. However, if you start the day before exams start, you won’t have the time you need to study all the work you need to know before the exams.
  • Study Groups: A great idea for studying, is doing so with some friends. This helps because, if you get stuck your friends will be able to help you figure out the problem. Also helping others with work helps improve your own ability.
