Two representatives from the University of Pretoria attended both meetings. They spoke about the successful transition of students to university, explaining how they could make the right choices and prepare for their next step in education. In the presentation, the University of Pretoria recognised the skills that Cambridge candidates possess, stating: 'Cambridge students have highly developed analytical and independent thinking skills – factors that contribute to successful adjustment to demands of tertiary studies.'
Cambridge International thanked the South African College Schools (SACS) and the British International College for hosting the events.
