Matric Winter School Mathematics Full Course

Our Matric Winter School is a comprehensive 4 day course run during the school holidays 24th – 27th June 2019 which covers the entire grade 11 and Matric Mathematics Syllabus.

This is an opportunity to revise what you’ve already learned and get a head start on content that you haven’t covered yet at school! The course coordinator will also teach you HOW to study and provide assistance with exam techniques. All the recorded lessons and material covered during the course will be uploaded to a google classroom that you will have access to until you write your final exam. The coordinator will also add additional material to this classroom throughout the year, giving you an opportunity to learn online anytime, anywhere.

Our aim is to help you achieve your academic goals and maximize your potential to achieve outstanding results! If you would like to book and secure your spot, please fill in the form on our website.
