Your journey in education starts now

With most local schools having opened their admissions for the 2019 school year, parents would do well to consider their options and weigh up the pros and cons of the various schools available. Your child’s education is after all, the most valuable investment you’ll make in their future success,
so be sure to assess each institution on its merits.

Schools are quite particular about the closing dates for application and enrolment,
so stay ahead of the game and be sure to diarise the various deadlines.


Education is the most powerful weapon
which you can use to change the world.

PROVES method: Master matric exams

Matrics in the class of 2018 should be deep into preparing for their upcoming exams – which are only a few weeks away – and thereafter the final exams of their school careers.

With only a handful of weeks left to revise, they need to up the ante to ensure they get the best marks possible. Doing so will enable them firstly to see which areas need more work before they write finals, and will also ensure they get the best marks to allow them access to tertiary studies and a qualification of their choice.

“Learners now need to go beyond reading and re-reading their textbooks and notes, and employ a more holistic strategy to position them to bring their best to the exam room,” says Wonga Ntshinga, senior head of programme: Faculty of ICT at the Independent Institute of Education, SA’s largest and most accredited private higher education institution. Ntshinga says the PROVES method is a great approach to follow, as it helps to cement the academic work in the learner’s mind, while expanding understanding.

The PROVES method can be broken down:

• PRACTISE by writing past papers or example questions rather than just reading. Most schools should make past papers available to their learners, but it is also a good idea to get ones in addition to those provided by your school. Good higher education institutions also help matric learners by providing past papers, so go visit a registered and accredited one in your area, and ask a student advisor to assist.

• REFRESH by ensuring you eat, sleep and exercise enough. Cramming into the early hours of the morning before an exam will leave you stressed and unable to focus. Look after your physical and mental health while you throw your weight behind your books. Learners still have enough time to cover what they need to before the exams, but the plan must be initiated now.

• ORGANISE yourself, your time and your work. Have a neat working environment and a clear plan for what you need to study every day. Sort and have on hand the relevant materials, to reduce anxiety and optimise learning. Don’t allow yourself to feel overwhelmed, but focus on the small efforts which, when compounded, will ultimately make a big impact.

• VISUALISE by using colour and mind maps and other strategies rather than just words.

• EXPLAIN by answering questions or telling friends or relatives about your work. It is not until you have tried to explain what you know that you can assess if you know enough.

• SOCIAL MEDIA can be used as an academic tool to expand your grasp of your work. Get together a study group of equally dedicated and committed peers, and use the various platforms for specific purposes.
