According to Statistics South Africa (StatsSA):
“The unemployment rate for the youth younger than 25, using the expanded definition, is a shockingly high 67.4%. Clearly, the rate of youth unemployed has become a national crisis, with significant social, economic and political implications.” – StatsSA (second quarter of 2017)
As seen in the “shocking” statistic mentioned above, it is now more crucial than ever to ensure good grades at both secondary and tertiary level institutions in order to break the status quo. Additionally, studies have found that there is a large gap between the level of education at secondary institutions as opposed to tertiary level institutions in South Africa. This leads to the conclusion that students are typically not ready for the overwhelming jump from High School to University; leading to a high percentage of dropouts.
It is clearly emphasised that the gap between High School and University has caused problems for students throughout South Africa. Using this information, Seventh Star’s product development team has designed a process by which students can effectively follow their dreams in their field of choice. The process is as follows:
Extra Lessons -> NBT and SAT Training -> University Assistance -> Graduation
The process ensures students are fully equipped for challenges in all levels; from High School, to University entrance, to University Assistance. Our speciality lies in assisting students gain entrance into specialised fields such as Medicine, Engineering, Veterinary Sciences and Physiotherapy and have achieved outstanding results over the years.

With the new year fast approaching, it is essential to secure your spot in Seventh Star’s 2018 programme. The current stats (updated weekly) can be seen below:
We advise all our clients to register as early as possible as spaces are limited and work on a first come first serve basis. Please note that classes within the categories may fill up quicker than the total amount shown. i.e Grade 10 Extra Lessons may be full but “Extra Lessons” may not yet be full.
How does the waiting list work?
The 2018 registration list works on a first come first serve basis with a limited number of spaces. Places are secured with a registration fee* equivalent to one month’s tuition fees for that class. This fee is, in essence, the first payment of a 12 month cycle, therefore payments will be collected for 11 months in 2018, ending in November. This excludes B.Sc. Biological Sciences students attempting to gain access into Medicine from the University of Pretoria, where fees will be collected for 5 months in 2018. Although the payment term is over 12 months, you are able to cancel your services at any point by providing one month's notice.
*Please note: Registration fees are non-refundable as we use this as security for students once our lists are full.
What does the schedule look like?
*Students who cannot attend the scheduled class can still join the programme in the “alternative class” for all subjects offered – limitations apply.

Unedited comments from the Seventh Star 2017 feedback report
It is a specialised service that helps you attain your academic goals effectively.
Seventh Star is very beneficial for every student that wants to thrive in their career and studies.
Fantastic value added for my daughter in University. Your input made a massive difference in Chane’s achievement and perception of her own ability to achieve!
Really good services and to be honest a fun environment to learn and practice with friends and cool tutor.
I found that Seventh Star was very eager to help students, and have an incredible passion for what they do.
Best tutoring I have ever come across! My marks have improved a lot and a 3 hour class is more fun at Seventh Star than a half an hour class at school.
By far the best academic assistance I have ever received – very professional, organised and value for money.
I have found them to be extremely professional, offering an exceptional service. I can only applaud Seventh Star, and have and will continue to recommend them.
A helping hand to reach my goals.
It is the best classes I have ever received and MR. Mitton is the best teacher I have had. And he has also given me the confidence that I have today. Thank you.
I believe that it delivers a fantastic service to its students. Mr Mitton has a way of encouraging you and supporting you to reach your full potential.
Feel like and treated like an individual.
Seventh star has been a lifesaver for us and my child is motivated and determined not to let the tutors down.
It’s really helped a lot, my science marks have picked up and we work at a pace I enjoy. There are always challenging questions which help.
It is a great service. Very valuable and totally worth it!
