Mixed emotions

THE Ministry of Education's Examination Centre at Suva's Selbourne St was filled with teenagers with mixed emotions yesterday as they picked up their Fiji School Leaving Certificate Examination results.

Ani Ravusa, 18, was overjoyed after checking the figures on her result sheet.

The shy lass, who preferred to keep her marks confidential, said she was happy with her achievement and hoped to perform better this year in Form Seven.

Another student who was content with his marks plans to join the Maritime Academy this year. Milio Naivalu, 18, dedicated his achievement to his parents, especially to his father who died in 2003.

He said he was thankful to his mother for working hard for his education.

Among the few smiling faces was Mohammed Mustakim who believed he deserved more for his hard work.

"I have given my marks for recounting and, hopefully, the outcome will be good," he said. Mohammed plans to enrol at the Fiji national University after his official marks are released.

Meanwhile, 42 students from five schools around the country were given zero marks in separate FSLC papers when the ministry found evidence of malpractice.
