Academy details

Live lessons

Our Science Academy teaching is done via online live lessons which are held weekly for each grade. In each lesson, learners will be guided by their Science Academy educator as well as a technical support team member. Before each lesson, learners will be given notes for their upcoming session to enable them to download and print them or have them available on their devices before the lesson. 


Weekly progress tests

Application of knowledge is key to learning success, especially in Physical Science. Therefore, in addition to the weekly live-online lessons and online video lessons the Science Academy learners write a weekly progress assessment that tests them on concepts learnt in previous weeks and even previous years. This forced test repetition is a cornerstone of Advantage Learn’s Science learning methodology. It ensures that learners spend focused time practising. It also reveals gaps in their understanding to enable correction and excellence in school tests and exams throughout the year.

The course is so helpful for my child and the fact that they give spot tests after each lesson to test the learners knowledge is an advantage as it really did improve her results

It was excellent! provided very concise and relative notes, I also felt comfortable asking questions and this solidified my knowledge!


This has been so beneficial for me, especially during the time of lockdown... it has helped me keep my marks up. I highly recommend it for learners looking to achieve their best results!
