James has been offered a place at Chizongwe Technical Boarding School which is reputed to be one of the best boys’ schools in the Eastern Province.We will need to let the school know on Monday if he will attend or James may lose his place.
James is a bright and well-spoken, well-mannered and confident boy and it would be great to see him have the chance to fulfill his potential.
You can get an idea of which subjects the pupil likes or is good at by looking at his or her marks. English and mathematics are obvious but you might like an explanation of the other subjects. Social and Development Studies is all about geography, history and civics. Zambian Language is the study of one of the many languages used in Zambia; in this area it is Chinyanja. Creative and Technology Studies is a mix or practical subjects such as arts and crafts. The marks may also indicate the type person, especially when it comes to the Special Papers; Special Paper 1 is a simple and basic IQ test based on English and Maths logic and Special Paper 2 is a basic visual IQ test based on patterns.
