AKAD+ REWRITE CLASS OF 2017
Many young people realise that their original grade 12 results could not either provide access to what you wanted to study, or you have changed your mind in terms of the subject choices. Akad Plus Learning Centre provides the opportunity for students with a matric (DBE, Umalusi or SACAI) to either redo a subject or even more than one subject and achieve a better grade. We also provide an option that students can register for a subject that they never had in grade 12 and with additional tuition we cover that grade 10, 11 and 12 curricula so that students then add this subject to their results. In 2017 we had 23 students who registered for Mathematics (21), Physical Sciences (21), Life Sciences (3), Afrikaans FAL (1), English HL (2) and Geography (1). Two students terminated their studies after the Prelims to pursue other ventures.
