However, many South Africans struggle to grab hold of the opportunity to study further, owing to financial challenges.

To help one particular student, Madonsela posted the student's impressive results which included an 80 percent for Physical Sciences and a 70 percent for Mathematics.

The matriculant is hoping to study Aerospace or aeronautical engineering at the University of Witwatersrand.

The Twitter community came together and responded with tons of helpful advice for the young man, including suggestions of companies which sponsor aerospace related degrees, such as SASOL and the South African National Defense Force.
