AS the new school year starts today, government has urged students to study hard and not involve themselves in malpractice.

Acting Education Minister Commander Viliame Naupoto said students and parents should not be discouraged by the recent incidents surrounding students who received zero marks in some of their exam papers.

Mr Naupoto advised students to learn and study and get what they want through honest means.

"We should achieve things through sheer hard work and determination and not through other means," he said.

Mr Naupoto said good results were guaranteed if students worked hard and were determined.

He said with the new school year, students should be mentally prepared.
