Academic Achievements

1968 matric results

Ten of our old class mates failed the end-exam in 1968, one of whom is currently a medical doctor in Canada.  Between the 160 of us who wrote the final exam, we could only muster up 45 distinctions – which goes to show that there isn’t necessarily a correlation between academic achievements at school and success in one’s career; and secondly, that the standard in those years was much, much higher than these days where individual scholars get up to eight or even nine distinctions.
