    Can i do idols by 2019 while im studying becouse i will be doing grade 12 next year .and i want to do idols and study at the same time .

    • ntokozo says:

      well hi Dineo i strongly suggest that you do not enter idols if you are in grade 12 next year trust me i was also tempted to do it this year but the work you get at school is simply unbearable. There will be a lot of travelling so i think that will work against you and you know during exams if you miss a paper you can not rewrite it the same year. Do not strain yourself i know its hard waiting but it will be worth it, i also had to wait the whole year this year so for now give your school work your last breath then you know that the following year you are going to give idols all you’ve got.
