Briefly News further reached out to lovely Emily Basson, a high school teacher based in Cape Town. Miss Basson shared how students who failed to obtain excellent results could improve their grades:

“In my view, if a student qualifies for a supplementary exam, they should enrol as soon as they can. If it’s more than one subject, split it up over more than one year.
“Also, they can enrol as a private candidate. If possible, they can arrange with subject teachers at school to attend certain lessons, and of course, arrange with the school to do exams throughout [the year], as part of their School Based Assessment marks.
"Lastly, they can also apply for a remark. They should ask for help from their school, if needed.”

Whether you passed matric with exceptional results or were unsuccessful for any reason, never give up! Your journey is not over. Resilience, determination, and hard work are key to success.
