In similar Briefly.co.za reports, matric final exams are set to begin on 5 November 2020 but a number of learners have decided that they will write their exams next year instead. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a disruption in the academic year and this has made a few matric learners anxious about exams. 19-year old learner Saeeda Yasin is one of those who have been affected.
Initially, she was excited about matric but things changed. "Due to this Coronavirus pandemic, I started having stress about what if I go to school and I get affected. What if these other learners have it and I get infected?" she said.
After thinking long and hard about it, Saeeda decided to start afresh in the following year with matric. Her anxiety about possibly getting the virus started affecting her school work and her marks dropped drastically.
