Wednesday, 30 January 2013 06:36

The Matric Class of 2012 really did themselves and Grantleigh proud with their fine example of leadership, support for the School and maintaining Grantleigh’s tradition of excellence in the National Senior Certificate Examination. Close on 9000 full-time candidates from 183 schools around South Africa wrote the exams and Grantleigh’s 59 students were part of that group.

The following is a summary of Grantleigh College’s results:

 97% of Grantleigh matriculants achieved a pass that qualifies them for entry to study a bachelor’s degree, or for entry to study a diploma;

 39 Grantleigh candidates achieved 94 subject Level 7 Ratings (Distinctions - 80%+). These results were the highest yet achieved in the new system by Grantleigh matriculants and were up from 72 in 2011 and 59 in 2010;

 We were especially pleased with the improvements achieved in the Sciences, with no fewer than 36 distinctions achieved in Maths, Physical Sciences and Life Sciences;

Individual achievements:

Chrissie McGrath was our Academic Dux scoring a full house of 8 out of 8 distinctions and an aggregate of 89%. In addition, Chrissie’s results in Life Sciences and Life Orientation placed her in the top 1% of all candidates nationally.

Kirsty Davidson was the runner-up with 6 distinctions and was placed in the top 1% of all IEB candidates in Business Studies.

Megan Muller also achieved 6 distinctions and was in the top 1% of all candidates for Afrikaans. She was joined by Dana Becks who also achieved 6 distinctions.

Other noteworthy achievements include Saien Pather, Sani Nkosi and Jonathan McMurtry who achieved 5 distinctions each, while Prashanth Krishanduth achieved 4 distinctions overall.

These outstanding results can be attributed to the collective effort of the staff and students. The individual support programme and the series of tutorials obviously proved their worth at the end of the year. However, it is not only about the top achievers, but also those students who achieved according to their true potential often doing a lot better than they had ever done academically, in the final exams.
