It is exam time, Matric exams are underway and some students are happy as they recall answers from memory, yet some others are scratching their heads as they try to remember, but as for one Grade 12 pupil from Nsongeni Secondary School in Isipingo, KwaZulu-Natal, got the going tough, and chose to throw the question papers down the toilet hole.
It was on the day of the isiZulu Paper one exam, and the matric learner, (name withheld), was in the exam room with classmates ready to take the test.
As reported by Isolezwe, it is alleged that while the papers were being distributed, she rose from her seat, grabbed some of the question papers and stormed out of the exam room.
According to the principal of the school, Sabelo Ngcobo, the learner threw 16 exam question papers down the pit toilet few metres outside the school hall where they were writing their exams.
“After she threw the papers down the toilet she ran off and she could not be located for hours.
“When we finally located her she explained that she has been stressed out and is under a lot of pressure, which caused her to act irrationally,” Ngcobo told Drum.
The matter was brought to the attention of the department of education and additional question papers were asked for.
“This matter inconvenienced everyone involved as we had to wait for more papers which caused the learners to write their exams later in the day,” the principal added.
He also pointed out the need for training individuals in stress management. Adding that modalities were being put in place to hold workshops which would equip individuals with insights on healthy coping mechanisms to deal with stress and that appropriate measures will be taken against the student.
“As a school we understand that a lot of our learners are unable to cope with exam stress but it does not justify acts that compromise other people’s livelihoods so the learner will be punished accordingly.”
The student has since been ordered to take the rest of her exams in a separate room from her peers. She had not barred from writing her exams.
KwaZulu-Natal MEC for education Kwazi Mshengu said that no action had been taken against the student as of now and urged learners not to put unnecessary pressure on themselves.
“The school has to determine the appropriate punishment for the learner where they will have to complete 20 hours of community service once they have completed their exams,” he said.
