IT'S BUSINESS as usual for Brandon Wilson of Bellefield Primary School as he settles back in school after the holidays and puts himself in good stead in preparing for the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) in March.
"I am feeling good with my preparation. I have just basically continued where I left off at school and it has been great so far," Brandon said.
His confidence level was also boosted by the good results he has been getting while working on past papers in class and at extra lessons.
"My teacher has been testing us continuously with past papers, and I am pleased with how I have handled them," Brandon disclosed.
"I have also been improving in my weakest area, social studies, because I have been really working hard at it and it is working for me."
The youngster disclosed that he has also been working on his speed.
"In GSAT, you have to work at a steady pace in completing your work on time while maintaining your accuracy," Brandon said. "That is an important area, which I am trying to get better at, finishing in time and even having enough time to look over my work. My teacher always stresses the importance of this, so I am always working at improving in this area."
Asked just how ready he is for the exams he said, "I think I am ready for it. If I was to do the exams now, I believe I would do very well, but I am not going to get too complacent. I know I have to just keep on working hard until that day comes."
