Grade 11

Work towards your matric qualification by completing Grade 11 online.

Grade 11 is often considered the most challenging high school year. Not only is the volume of work immense, but many learners consider applying to tertiary institutions which rely largely on good Grade 11 results, and this adds to the pressure.

How to set yourself up for success in Grade 12

The best survival tip is to be as prepared for your Grade 11 year as possible. This is what you can expect:

Term 1

Tests, tasks and a lot of new content and concepts. Stay ahead by revising daily and studying effectively.

Term 2

Tests, tasks and June exams. Prepare fully for your exams by summarising all your work. Use your results to identify possible learning gaps and focus on those areas.

Term 3

Tests, tasks and consolidating work from Term 1 and 2.

Term 4

Final exams! Put in your best effort as you will use your Grade 11 report to apply to tertiary institutions.

Tips for completing Grade 11 online

Like any goal in life, preparation and commitment are key. The following tips will help you thrive and not just survive your Grade 11 year:


Create a daily schedule for yourself and stick to it. One idea is to create 4 x 90 minute blocks. Take regular breaks and get some fresh air, don’t just sit behind your screen during your breaks.

Daily revision

If you revise your work on a daily basis, you will be able to stay on top of your work and also identify any possible problem areas which you can then obtain support for via our Tutor Chat.

Plan your term

Print out your assessment schedule and place it in a prominent place where you can view it daily. Ensure you stay ahead of your tasks and never miss a test or exam as you will receive zero.

Study effectively

Remember to focus hard during your lessons but take regular breaks to keep your mind alert. Attend a study course if you feel you are not able to study effectively. Time management is critical at this point in your school career, so master this skill and it will benefit you throughout your study and work career.
