Siphokazi (17) shares how her family and friends helped her become a top student.

We all have the power to do great things, but only with the support of family and friends! That’s why it’s important to turn to them when you need the encouragement to reach your goals.

When I was in matric last year, I set myself the goal of passing with distinctions.

A goal is a target that you set for yourself, like improving your marks, learning to save, or starting a business.

To get to your goal, you need a plan of action. These are things that you will do to reach your target.

When you set a goal, especially an ambitious one, you need to be determined and work hard to get to where you want to be.

This is where the help and support of my friends and community came in. My friends and I formed a study group that met every day after school to study and revise. I also talked to my family about my goal and explained why I couldn’t always help with chores.

My teachers told me about organisations that help learners with their studies and revisions, like Ikamva Youth. I also attended Saturday school, as well as winter and spring classes during school holidays.

Knowing that all my hard work would lead me to my goal helped me focus, especially on days when it seemed like I was in over my head. The end result? Other than getting 7 distinctions, I was flown to Johannesburg to meet the minister of basic education, Angie Motshekga. I was also offered a bursary to study actuarial sciences at the University of Cape Town. My final year of school taught me that hard work pays off. The determination we put into reaching our goals is worth it.

Hi Springster. I would recommend you get a tutor or a study group that can assist you improve in mathematics. Speak to your teacher about recommending a reputable tutor for you. Good luck!

I'm also in grade ,10 and I'm trying to push my work

Hi you guys, the same happened to me in 2015 when I was I grade 10 but during the last term I worked extra hard and did a lot of past papers and I passed. So don't give up and I know how if feels like its over but its only gonna be over if you don't do good 4th term because its 75% of your pass. Good Luck💕 communicate if you need help.

Hi Springster. My advice would be to study really hard, perhaps get a tutor to assist with the subjects you're struggling with and do your best to pass, but also remember that repeating a year shouldn't be seen as a failure but rather an opportunity to do better going forward. Good luck.

Wow..but I try to study and its hard without a support from my FAM...

hi I'm also doing grade 10 n I'm struggling in mathematics n the worst thing is that my parents can not afford to pay for Saturday schools/a tutor for n in my community there are no study groups I don't think that I lack concentration and sometimes feel lazy to study not knowing the cause can some one give me advice on what to do!!

March 20, 2022, 8:59 p.m.

If you want to pass i think the best thing to do is to ask for someone to tutor you like a teacher ,friend or family but unfortunately you should be the most responsible by setting your goals fr scratch to see what you exactly needs and good at.do some research of yourself be truthful ask people how they see you and what can be better for you.

Last year I was doing matric I had dreams an goals just like any other teenager it really helped me a lot because I knew what was good and best for me I learned how to separate good an bad stuff though mu friends had to turn there backs because drinking was no longer on my goals .I had to stay an be strong alone I wanted to be a better example that freedom it's for the moment not a life time situation. So I study hard on my books when I wrote my final examination I had a smile on my face because I knew within me that I've already made it . So when the results came out it was a diploma an my friends the went with high certificate some failed so I learned that having a passion of your own helps more then the follow ups
