If anything, 2020 was a whirlwind. The cherry on the cake? Leaked matric papers. This isn’t new – but what makes this year different? Street Talk speaks to tertiary students about the ongoing lack of government support and how the pandemic sparked a sense of hyper-vigilance.

This film was produced by Street Talk.
