25 February 2020 | Education
Top performer of the 2019 NSSCO from Erongo region Tulipomwene says that the most important thing is to study very hard and there is time for everything. She adds that time management is the key to success.
“I started studying for my grade 12 exams a month before they started which really helped a lot because when it was time for exams, all I had to do was revision and going through a lot of previous exam papers which I must say was of great help to me.”
Tulipomwene is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in business administration at the University of Namibia (Unam).
She further said with the money she got for her excellent academic performance she was able to pay for her own registration fees, which was a great relief to her parents.
Julia David says that the best thing you can do for yourself, is set up a study timetable. “I made sure i stick to my timetable. Under every circumstance, this is the best tool for me.” She said.
Her favorite recipe for success was to make studying a habit, books became her close friends.
She is currently studying towards a Bachelor of Science at Namibia University of Science and Technology (Nust) and still doing Namcol to improve her points.
“I want to try out something new when I am done studying. I will never stop studying.” She further adds.
“I would never say it was easy but i would want to give the current grade 12's one tip that lead me to success "focus", study smart and have a vision for what you really want in life and all shall work out. Good luck and never forget to pray.” She advises.
As one of the top performers in the Otjozondujpa region Shikongo advices his fellow peer as well current Grade 12 learners to not mix business with pleasure and plan ahead. He adds that they should set targets that frighten them as this drives them to push harder. He is currently pursuing an honours degree in military science at the University of Namibia and wishes to also pursue an MbChB degree in medicine next year respectively.
I plan to continue my studies at Unam in the field of Chartered Accounting through a Deloitte Bursary. I hope to continue sports if time will allow me and of course keep studying hard. I advise other learners to set goals and exceed them, not just reach them.
Dennis Hamutenya from St. Boniface College, plans on studying electrical engineering at the Namibian University of Science and Technology (Nust). “Everyone has potential. You just have to believe in yourself and in your dreams. Don’t give up, because results are not the end of the world.”
St. Boniface College turned up another top performer: Max Mwifi. His dream for 2020 is trying to bring all his dreams within reach, and being a better version of himself. “Work hard in every task you take on, because anything is possible. I never thought I would make the top ten, never mind the top two.”
Elizabeth Shihungileni, also a student from St. Boniface College, encourages this year’s grade 12’s to never doubt their abilities. “Work hard, believe in yourself and always put God first,” she says. She plans on studying civil engineering at Nust.
Mateus Bulezi, a learner at Jacob Morenga Secondary School, is the number four performer, and hopes to make a difference in other people’s lives. “I want to be able to help someone else to also achieve the best possible results, because faith is taking the first step on a path that isn’t always clear from the start.” Bulezi plans on pursuing medical studies, which will enable him to help others.
Taimi Asino, a learner of St. Therese Secondary School located at Tses, was overwhelmed with emotion when she was announced as Namibia’s number six performer. “I want to study medicine. My advice to the new matric group, is to get rid of any negativity in their lives, and rather to focus on God, because then anything is possible.”
