Get prepared! The CTSC recognises the challenges facing the performance of our Matric learners and will be running TWO
one-day intensive workshops which will directly impact the skill and cognitive ability of matric learners, enabling them to better perform in their forthcoming final exams. The workshop includes practical demonstrations on certain prescribed and
recommended experiments, in-depth explanation of the theory, a strategy for approaching complex and difficult content areas,
and review of previous CAPS exam questions. This skills-based workshop is a combination of content review before the exams and enrichment to better equip the learners to excel in the forthcoming exams. Each learner will receive a comprehensive workshop booklet to use for further revision.
