Advanced Programme Subjects

Designed for academically advanced learners, the IEB’s advanced programme subjects are set to improve self-discipline and critical thinking skills. Because of this, the IEB Advanced Programme subjects are the ideal way for learners to give themselves a competitive edge in their chosen degree programmes.

Advanced Programme Mathematics (AP Maths)

If a learner is excelling at Mathematics in Grade 9 and wants to keep up their momentum, then AP Maths enables them to do so. Our AP Maths course begins in Grade 10 and ends in Grade 12 with the IEB AP Maths exam. However, the purpose of studying AP Maths is not for the IEB certificate. AP Maths opens doors into universities, particularly overseas, and bridges the gap between high school Mathematics and first-year university, reducing the likelihood of a learner falling behind or failing first-year university.

We recommend this for learners who:

  • Are in Grades 10 to 12
  • Want to get their best results in Mathematics
  • Learners with a strong Core Maths competency level (minimum of 70% at the end of Grade 9)
  • Learners who wish to give themselves the edge in competitive degree programs like Engineering, Medicine and Business Science.

Advanced Programme Physics (AP Physics)

Learners who have a love for Physical Science and who are performing well in this subject in grade 10 may wish to take AP Physics. AP Physics enables learners to advance their existing skills from grade 11 to grade 12. On top of this, AP Physics opens doors into universities both locally and internationally, enabling learners to create a stronger foundation of knowledge before stepping into their tertiary studies.

We recommend this for learners who:

  • Are in Grades 11 to 12
  • Want to get their best results in Physical Science
  • Learners with a strong Physical Science competency level (minimum of 70% at the end of Grade 10)
  • Learners who wish to give themselves the edge in competitive degree programs like Engineering, Mathematics and Science-related degree programmes.


I enjoyed the Grade 10 AP Math classes and Emily is a great teacher. Thanks, Sean Britz

The Grade 11 AP Maths Online course proved an excellent choice for me, seeing as I had many extracurricular achievements. The videos are comprehensive and easy to understand and assistance is readily available for any issues one may encounter. Perhaps, in the future, I would recommend that online students be supplied with a physical/online 'textbook' of questions/problems per semester, similar to those that in-person students receive, because working off the digital worksheets per video/printing them out individually can be a bit of a hassle. Additionally, I would prefer if more higher level unseen questions were asked in the exams, in order to really expand one's thinking. That being said, I am happy with the amount of growth I have experienced with regards to my Mathematical and problem solving skills whilst completing this course and I eagerly await the challenges and growth that the Grade 12 course will bring.

AP Maths is wonderful. You get to learn new things plus it helps alot with Maths in school. AP is one of the best choices made.

The teaching is excellent! However, I don't think the practice exams provided are not adequately prepare us for the IEB exam as more time is given for them and they're not as difficult.

It was challenging becoming a senior with so much focus on my subjects like maths. My ap maths tutors made it a stress free transition supporting me all the way from grade 10 to Matric. I was able to achieve the best outcome in school maths as a result of doing ap maths with advantage learn. They are friendly and very helpful in the classroom and online.

- Carin Mathys -

It was a great teaching environment for me. The teacher was good, the lessons were taught at a steady pace to learn and was a good experience to be ready for grader 12 and university

The AP Math grade 10 course was really good. We were able to have lessons once a week but also have the online courses so that we could catch up if we were sick or not understanding a section we did. The people in charge are kind and helpful when you need go to them for help.

- Alex Good -

The course is well organised and exceptionally beneficial, not only in extending one’s knowledge of maths, but also with core maths. I would definitely recommend it.

AP maths has helped me advance my knowledge and skills in mathematics efficiently this year. It has introduced my new passion for maths and the lessons are always delightful to attend. The lessons are taught with excellent methods and at a steady pace. Taking AP was the best decision I could make and I can’t wait for the following years of AP.

- Kiara Govender -

I found AP maths very useful in my core maths at school and it was a really good experience. I was able to learn a lot more than I thought I would be able to take in, yet I managed pretty well with it this year.

It was fun engaging in Maths in a different way to school.

- Arielle Jack -

It was okay could be better... Did help a lot with core maths. Teaching needs to be refined though otherwise very good.

- Yaaseen Hassim -

It is a great experience as you can get a one on one contact with the teacher, just as if you were in school.

- Njabulo Dlomo -

Although it was quite challenging for me this term AP math has really exposed me to the rudiment of analytical thinking

- Jesuferanmi Olorundare -

This course is definitely a must for any Matric student with the intention of doing AP maths. Special thanks need to be directed to our teacher, Mrs Pike, who would always go out of her way to ensure that each student understood every concept as we progressed through the syllabus. She really brought this subject to life for me, with the extenton questions and extra content she would challenge us with. Again, all Matrics of 2019 and beyond, you have to attend this course If you are doing AP maths. It is only for your benefit.

- Damien Stichelbout -

Definitely is beneficial and really does extend your maths ability

- Andrew Gace -

This course is very beneficial and helps even in normal school math. AP pushes to be the best. I really encourage it

- Aimee-Sera McLeod -

Trisha remained enthusiastic and entertaining for my entire 3 years and is probably the only reason I passed AP and aced my NBTs ( which I did thanks to her course)

- Matthew Visser -

This is a great course that will teach you everything about AP Maths. The online videos are of a great quality and they explain the subject matter thoroughly. I highly recommend this course of you are considering a mathematical degree after school.

- Francois Munnik -

Thoroughly enjoyed learning Ap-math with Advantage Learn. Always helpful at any time.

- Shaakirah Mayet -

My daughter has enrolled for the AP Maths from grade 10. She has now completed grade 11 and it has made a tremendous difference to her approach both mathematically and statistically as well as with problem solving. The teaching she has received is phenomenal and I would highly recommend it to students interested in pursuing science/commerce and engineering.
