Seldom has one seen such disparate views on a matter of national interest as those expressed on the 2013 matric results.

Study Material for the Regulatory Examinations

There was a huge upsurge in registrations for the exams, as well as a lot of enquiries about study material.
Some people have no idea where to start, while others complain that there is so much material available, that they do not know where to start.
As an FSB appointed examination body, we are not allowed to endorse any study material or training service…

We ran the first workshop in Pinelands yesterday. We had 42 reservations, and 42 people pitched. Wie het gesê Kaapstad is ‘n slaapstad?
