She revealed that managing time is the most critical; proper planning is essential to avoid rushing other peers.
Managing your time is crucial when preparing for examinations; you will need help from your teacher and other fellow students. Proper planning will avoid rushing others; you will get help on time and exactly when needed. Avoid playing catch up always because you will end up losing the important aspects of your examinations.
Practising helps; you will gauge how much time you need to apply concerning a subject when you practice. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect; you need to give yourself examination conditions and practice using past exam papers. You don’t want surprises in the exam.
Taking a break
It’s always important to take a break; rest is equally important as reading when preparing for examinations. Don’t go in an exam with a cluttered mind, do not try to grasp everything the day before exams. This is why planning is important; it allows you to rest the day before the exam to regenerate your mental strength. You need a clear mindset, so you need to give yourself enough rest.
On-screen, Nonka joined Uzalo as a school going student and grew with the storyline. She revealed that onscreen, she memorizes the script by converting it into a song.
