As we can see by the matric results, 2017 was a tough year for matric learners across South Africa. With this in mind, we are proud to say our AP Maths learners put in the hard yards over three years resulting in some very pleasing results. Class of AP Maths 2017, we are so proud of you! You did yourselves and us proud. Thank you for all the hard work.

AP Maths is tough, there is no doubt. Every learner that journeys on this programme will lay testament to this. Our learners walk the hard road for a future benefit which is commendable and we are so proud of each and every one of our class of 2017 who completed the programme, regardless of the results they got. Helping our learners successfully complete the programme is our primary goal but we do like good results and if our students have the aptitude to perform then our teachers and course push them to do so. Our class of 2017 consisted of 71 learners who wrote the IEB AP Maths exam in 2017 out of which we got 13 As and 11 Bs. Whoop!

Once again, we are proud of all our AP Maths learners, regardless of results, however, we do like to celebrate those learners who perform exceptionally against their peers. Here are our high achievers in 2017. Congratulations to the following learners who achieved A’s on the 2017  IEB Advanced programme mathematics exam:
