Senior School 2016 Results

Axium’s Ekukhuleni programme offers Mathematics, Science and English support to 30 Grade 12 learners selected from 6 Senior Secondary Schools in the area. Support is provided through extra tuition on Saturdays and during holiday ‘boot camps’ as well as weekday study group facilitation. Here’s what the 2016 Grade 12’s achieved, and what our trajectory looks like so far…

Axium Education aims to consistently improve Ekukhuleni student performance and tertiary placement. Our target is to achieve a 100% Bachelor pass rate (with Mathematics and Science) and for all 30 matric learners to move on to tertiary education. During 2016 we continued to make good progress towards this target. On a number of measures, our Ekukhuleni Class of 2016 is the best yet!

Measure 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 Target
# of Ekukhuleni Grade 12 students 26 23 28 30 28 30
# of M&S Bachelor’s passes (%) 4 (15%) 12 (52) 14 (50) 17 (57) 21 (75) 100 %
# of passes (%) 16 (61%) 21 (91) 22 (79) 25 (83) 27 (96) 100 %
# of students with maths, physical science and English above 50 % (%) 9 (39) 8 (29) 12 (40) 15 (54) 100 %
# accessed tertiary* (%) 6 (23%) 12 (52) 20 (71) 14(47) 15 (54) 100 %
# Tertiary ‘Full Ride’** (%) 2 (8%) 3 (13) 7 (25) 5 (17) 9 (32) 75 %
% M&S Bachelor’s passes of ALL students at our partner schools 1% 2% 7% 9% 10% 5%/yr increase

Some individual highlights of 2016:

  • Zuko Sogoni achieved seven distinctions including 99% for Physical Science. He was awarded a full scholarship to study Actuarial Science at UCT and is the first learner from schools in this area to achieve a “full house” of distinctions.
  • Nine of our Ekukhuleni Grade 12’s have full tertiary funding through SAICA, Thuthuka, REAP or Umthombo Youth Development.

The graphs below illustrates the consistent growth of the programme across a number of metrics.

*Given improved Grade 12 results in 2015 and 2016 we were naturally disappointed with our tertiary placement rate, compared to 2014. This is mainly due to the lack of success applying to TSiBA, where previously many of our students accessed and experienced significant success.

**’Full Ride’ = Fully funded bursary/scholarship
