Further Studies Subjects

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

Advantage Learn is a registered distance education provider for Further Studies (also known as Advanced Programmes) with the IEB. Matric Further Studies learners will be examined for certification via the Independent Examination Board under their International Secondary Certificate.
Further Studies Maths (Advanced Programme Maths)

If a learner is excelling at Mathematics in Grade 9 and wants to keep up their momentum, then Further Studies Maths (also known as Advanced Programme Maths) enables them to do so. Our Further Studies Maths course begins in Grade 10 and ends in Grade 12 with the IEB Further Studies Maths exam. However, the purpose of studying Further Studies Maths is not for the IEB certificate. Further Studies 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.


Further Studies Physics (Advanced Programme Physics)

Learners who have a love for Physical Science and who are performing well in this subject in grade 10 may wish to take Further Studies Physics (also known as Advanced Programme Physics). Further Studies Physics enables learners to advance their existing skills from grade 11 to grade 12. On top of this, Further Studies 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.

Further Studies English (Advanced Programme English)

Further Studies English prepares learners to cope with the challenging demands associated with university, which will help them to compete at an international level and helps them differentiate themselves from other applicants thereby increasing their chance of getting into their university degree of choice when places in that degree programme are limited.

We recommend this for learners who:

  • Are in grades 9 – 12
  • Learners with a strong English Home Language competency level
  • Learners with an interest in English literature who want to extend themselves
  • Learners who want to better their English Home Language results by extending themselves
  • Learners who want to better prepare themselves for tertiary study
  • Learners who want to differentiate themselves when applying to universities
  • Learners who are looking to apply to international universities
