  • The overall observation and findings were that time management and reading skills in general were lacking – this has been addressed with the learners and their parent(s).
  • Reading (in general) and extra classes in Maths, Sciences and Accounting was recommended.
  • Concerns from parents: financial assistance, accommodation and transport.
  • Not all learners presented high academic abilities (according to the aptitude test results). The SciMathUS programme were recommended.
