The Grade 12 candidates of Brainline Learning World who wrote the National Senior Certificate exam, successfully received their results on the 31st of December 2014.

Moments after the Independent Examinations Board released the results on their website at midnight, our learners cheerfully buzzed on our social networks! “It was scary, but when I got it, I was happy!” said Sibrina D’Andrea on Facebook.

Coleen Cronje, CEO of Brainline Learning World, said: “We are SO proud, because our learners study toward their matric certificate without the aid of a full time school and full time teachers. They are special indeed! May all their dreams for their future, be launched in 2015!” Brainline is proud to have an increased pass rate from 67% in 2012, to an astonishing 70% in 2014!

“The IEB conducts assessment in three Advanced Programme (AP) courses, namely AP Mathematics and AP English and Afrikaans. These are courses are designed for strong school-going learners with a specific talent and interest in the fundamental disciplines of Mathematics and literature study. The AP courses are available to any learner in South Africa who chooses to participate. Hence learners in both IEB and state schools make use of the opportunity to extend their learning and challenge their own abilities through these programmes. The assessment has been benchmarked by UK NARIC, the UK equivalent of the South African Qualifications Authority, and are considered equivalent to the UK A-levels. Learners who have been successful in these courses have shown conclusively that there are a significant number of South African learners whose academic performance is comparable with the highest school-leaving standards in the world.” Quoted from the IEB Press Release, 31st of December 2014.

Congratulations to each and every Gr 12 candidate. You make us very proud!
