|The happy but tired students|
After leading three courses for over 60 people and conducting a number of inspections throughout NSW, Wicus spent a week in Western Australia inspecting various dorper flocks before returning to South Africa. Prior to his departure, Wicus completed marking the Senior Exams.
Of the 20 Senior Course participants, all passed the theory portion of the exam and all but one passed the combined theory and practical exam. To pass the exam, candidates must earn at least 50% of the maximum points in each of the four sections (one theory section and three practical sections) and at least 60% of the maximum total points.
