JULY-SEPTEMBER: IGCSE & AS-LEVEL Excel Study Center (Excel Labs) Workshops - (Parkmore, Sandton)

Semester Practical Courses and Practical Exam Prep Workshops:

Excel LABS is a provider of practical science lessons, in Parkmore, Sandton, Johannesburg. They offer practical classes for children from age 10 years to A-Level learners.

Primary phase learners will gain insight into the world of life science, physical science and earth & space science through a comprehensive course of fun, practical activities. Designed to instill a love for learning and questioning the world around us, young learners aged 10 to 12, will be guided through a series of exciting topics. Learners aged 12-15 embark on more challenging activities, deepening their knowledge and understanding of the sciences and laying a foundation toward further study in Grades 10-12, IGCSE and A-Levels.

Secondary phase learners are introduced to lab procedures, including safety, etiquette and equipment usage. Learners work at individual, equipped lab stations, providing essential practical skills and access to specialised equipment. Biology, Chemistry and Physics practical courses are offered at IGCSE and AS levels. Our courses are in line with the CAIE syllabi and exam requirements, although the skills developed are advantageous for learners of all curricula. The AS courses provide comprehensive coverage of the practical syllabi at a steady pace and increase opportunities for experimentation, discussion and improving depth of understanding.

Full day exam preparation workshops are held over weekends just before each exam sitting and offer intensive practical training to learners who have little to no practical experience and are unable to attend regular practicals throughout the year. They are intensive and cover difficult and most often examined topics and skills. Biology, Chemistry and Physics workshops run each April and September for IGCSE alternative-to-practical and AS practical examinations.
