The three top learners shared their future plans with the Northglen News as well as tips for the matric class of 2017.

For Darshan, his key to success was maintaining a balanced lifestyle and having a strong support structure.  Speaking about the moment his results were released and his future goals, he said,  “There were mixed emotions, of excitement and happiness. All the years of school have paid off. I am happy to share this trophy with Kevalin. I plan on studying Actuarial Science at UCT and I’d like to open my own actuarial firm in Durban by the time I reach 45.”

Kevalin who plans on studying mechanical engineering said time management is vital during your matric year.

Meanwhile, 17-year-old Thejal said the year was not as bad as everyone describes it to be. She ensured there was a balance between her study time and relaxation period. The Durban North resident plans on studying medicine at the University of Witwatersrand.
