Resources To Help You Get Distinctions


In Matric and your school is just not doing enough to help you prepare for exams? Anxious about getting the best results so that you can get into the university of your dreams? Here are some resources to help you study and prepare better. 


With Matrics having their very first matric exam approaching, preparation is in order. Sometimes the best way to ease exam stress is to take the stress and have it be geared towards working and studying even harder. To study effectively, Matrics are going to need to do more than be in class every day. Resources such as study guides and tutors would then come in handy. 

Study Guides

Study guides can be seen as background to your textbooks that are designed to help you understand content better as well as have you complete activities geared towards preparing you for exams and exam format. These books make revision easier and helps the learner grasp knowledge better. They can be found at bookstores or even stores such as CNA. Some useful study guide brands include:

  • Study & Master
