Leah Martinez – Humming Bird Elementary School: “I expected to do good, I wasn’t sure how I would do but I was expecting to be in the top 25. I was expecting to do good and have a good grade because I studied hard on a day to day basis so yes I was expecting to do good.”
Courtney Menzies: “When you got closer to crunch time, how did you prepare?”
Leah Martinez – Humming Bird Elementary School: “Just writing down proper notes, doing some past papers, listening to my teachers, their advice. Also, I went to evening schools, studying at home, doing some past papers and that is pretty much it.”
Courtney Menzies: “Have you decided which High School you are going to go to and what you are going to study?”
Leah Martinez – Humming Bird Elementary School: “I don’t know what I am going to study but I decided to go to SCA.”
According to Leah, Math and Social Studies were the easiest part of the PSE’s for her. She has already been accepted into St. Catherine’s Academy.
