PHILLIP Pesamino of Marist Brothers High School has all the reasons to smile after he received his Fiji Form Seventh Examination result from the Ministry of Education Examination Office in Suva yesterday.
Pesamino said words could not describe how excited he was after he saw his overall marks.
For the Year 13 student, hard work, dedication and sacrifices have paid off.
“I’m thankful that I’ve finally reaped what I had sown from the beginning of the year and I’m glad that I was able to achieve and score the exact mark I was aiming for,” Pesamino said.
He said he could not wait to show his parents his marks.
Pesamino hopes to pursue a degree in Electronic Engineering at the University of the South Pacific next year.
Eighteen-year-old Mereoni Bole of Vunimono High School said she was relieved after she received her FSFE marks yesterday.
She said her parents played a huge role, adding without their guidance she could not have come this far.
“I would not have done this without the support of my parents. They are the ones who motivate and encourage me when I feel like giving up,” Mereoni said.
She said she had been looking forward to the day when she would collect her exam results from the examination office.
“Now I can sleep peacefully and not worry about my exam result anymore.”
Pesamino and Mereoni were among the 7246 Year 13 students who sat the exam this year.
