The IFP in KwaZulu-Natal calls on matric
learners to spend more time studying their books than spending
hours on social networks, as they prepare for their final exams.
"Learners must use their time efficiently by
reading copies of previous exam papers and complete them in
‘exam conditions’. Revision is key in retaining information. If
learners don’t revise they will forget within 24 hours. Learners who spend long periods on social
media networks are prone to falling behind," said IFP KZN
Education Spokesperson, Mrs Thembeni kaMadlopha-Mthethwa, MPL.
"Mobile phone use may distract students from
concentrating on their course work and this could result in lower
grades or distracting them from their academic goals. The IFP
acknowledges the benefit of social media within an educational
context but encourages learners to focus more on studying school
books," continued Mrs Madlopha-Mthethwa.
“The IFP once again wishes our matriculants
all the best with their final examinations and urges them to
focus and prepare to the best of their ability, for the home
stretch towards completing their final examinations,” concluded
