Pecanwood College Matric Results 2018
From the time this group of pupils first arrived in Grade 8 in 2014, they have given evidence of their academic potential and yet at the same time there has been a group of learners which have required individual attention, nurturing and guiding to ensure they progressed from grade to grade. Pupils with significant learning barriers -just being in a position to write the final Matric exams was an accomplishment in itself! We are ever so proud of the achievements of this year group – the Headmaster and staff of Pecanwood College congratulate and celebrate their achievements at this time!
As a class of 60 pupils, they achieved a ratio of 1,1 distinctions per pupil. With 88% Bachelor Degree passes,10% Diploma passes and 2% Higher Certificate passes, the 100% Pass Rate is most celebrated. The year-group average of 64% was good and is a strong indicator of consistency across the board. There are outstanding individual performances with Zahra Tayob, Tyla Vilela and Nyiko Sithole each achieving four distinctions. They were closely followed by Gabriella de Bruyn, Kimberly Cawood, Jack Phillips and Jasmine van der Nat garnering three distinctions each.
Evidence of the breadth of talent across subject areas such as Mathematical Literacy, IsiZulu, Dramatic Arts and Visual Arts also achieved group averages of 75% and higher – this is indicative of the combination of dedicated and able staff and hard-working and talented pupils.
