What are Workshops?

Seventh Star Workshops are condensed courses that cover the most essential concepts needed to perform well during both Prelim and Final examinations. Our Workshops cover both Mathematics and Physical Sciences and are composed of highly integrated and consolidated past paper questions - which are broken down step-by-step during each Workshop. In addition, our lecturers touch on the most effective ways to approach examinations, helping students with their overall composure and mentality throughout the exam period. Students receive extensive revision exercises along with memos to help them internalise the work they are reviewing.

With the COVID-19 Pandemic heavily disrupting the academic year, Workshops are more essential than ever to help bridge the gap that has developed as a consequence of weeks of interrupted learning time. Seventh Star has successfully hosted Workshops for the past five years, which have been scientifically proven to increase student performance by up to 15.54%.

Past Success with Workshops

Seventh Star has successfully offered Workshops to students for the past 5 years and we have achieved some exceptional results. Our collective group of services has helped hundreds of students gain entry into some the most demanding degree choices available and include options such as Medicine, Veterinary Sciences, Dentistry and Engineering to name but a few. More specifically, our Workshops have helped students with their confidence and mentality during examination periods, which are often seen as the most stressful times that students face throughout their educational careers.

Based on the feedback that we have gathered from our past Workshop attendees, the two most evident benefits that students found invaluable are:

1. A huge reduction in anxiety before, during and after their exam has been written, which has the double benefit of allowing students to focus more clearly on other exams that require their attention.

2. A boost in their confidence and ability to take on exam-style questions - making sure that the student maintains their composure while writing. There is nothing worse than being caught off guard by a challenging question that effects a student’s ability to complete the remainder of their exam.

The vast majority of our attendees (91.89%) stated that they would not have have achieved the results they did without the assistance of our Workshops and a scary 28.9% believed they might have failed one or more of their papers.

What do customers think? 

  • The thought of doing a 4/6 hour workshop drained me, I thought I would be able to get more done from home working on my own, but boy was I wrong. The support, motivation and guidance offered by the teacher was incredible. Not only did he go above and beyond with helpful work material given but he made sure to make the classes fun and enjoyable. Seventh Star ensured we were prepared for our prelims and finals in all aspects; work content including difficult questions, time management and mental preparation. I can honestly say I have never walked into an exam saying, “I’ve got this, bring it on!”, but after those workshops I had never felt more confident and prepared.

    **The attendee ended up being the top IEB student in 2019 and went on to gain access into Medicine after Seventh Star’s six-month BSc Biological Science Programme (University Assistance).

    Student
  • I am extremely grateful for the Seventh Star Workshops that I attended during Grade 11 and Grade 12. These workshops changed my way of thinking and I started to approach my questions with a different mindset. This ultimately contributed to me being admitted for Veterinary Science and it also prepared me for my busy first year.

    Mr Mitton has an excellent way of presenting class and hours passed like minutes. What an absolute legend!

What does the data say?

Research conducted by the University of Cape Town on students studying Anatomy concluded that participants who attended at least one Workshop achieved an average of 11.27% higher than students who did not. Furthermore, students that attended multiple Workshops achieved an average of 15.54% more than students who attended no Workshops.

Got Questions?

Why are there multiple options for each subject, covering the same content?

We have scheduled multiple options for each Workshop and although the same content is covered, we will review different examples. Students can choose how many of the same Workshop they would like to attend, but essentially repetition is not considered a bad idea, especially in disciplines such as Mathematics and Physical Sciences. 

I registered for the Online Prelim Workshops. Do I need to register for these too?

If you are looking for a little extra preparation and want to attend a Contact Workshop, then we recommend registering. You DO NOT need to register for the Online version as the content is identical to the Online Prelim Workshops.

Do I already have to be a Seventh Star student in order to register?

No. Our series of Workshops is open to anyone who wishes to register, nation wide.

If I am currently registered with Seventh Star for Extra Lessons, should I register for Workshops as well?

Our Workshops tackle a different aspect to that of our Extra Lessons. Workshops have been designed specifically to increase the performance of students during highly stressful examination periods. They are specifically formulated to help introduce a clear strategy to effectively and successfully prepare for the actual examinations. While Extra Lessons are aimed at helping students increase their foundation and understanding of content throughout the year, Workshops help students cope and perform better under pressure. We highly recommend both “current” and “visitor” students to register for Workshops.

What is the cost of each Workshop and how long are they?

We charge a small fee of R400 per Contact Workshop and each of them last for a minimum of 4 hours. This equates to R100 per hour of tuition. The online version is charged at R200 as the content is a recording from September 2020.

Are the Workshops recorded and can they be viewed later online?

Our Contact Workshops will not be recorded and therefore cannot be viewed online. Should you wish to recap at a later stage, you can register for the Online version and gain access through that. 

Are these Workshops for advanced or beginner level students?

We highly encourage ALL students to register for our Workshops. We are certain that no matter the level of the student, these Workshops will be highly beneficial to all.

Should I register for the Online Grade 11 Revision Workshop?

We recommended that students writing their Final examinations revise specific concepts taught throughout the Grade 11 year as they are tested in Matric. Therefore, the Online Grade 11 revision Workshop is specifically designed to help students revise only the necessary concepts needed for Matric. We have broken down our Workshops into separate options so that students only need to attend Workshops that they feel are necessary.

Should I only attend the Workshops to prepare for my examinations or should I also study?

Seventh Star will ALWAYS recommend that a student practices more. Our Workshops are extremely effective, but only lay out an effective strategy for students to successfully prepare for their examinations (Mid-year, Prelims or Finals). It is still highly recommended that after the Workshops, students practice as many past paper exam questions as they can. Examiners tend to follow similar lines of questioning and therefore the more past paper questions a student completes, the more accurately the student will be able to identify the “type” of question in an exam environment.

Do you offer any additional subjects other than Maths and Science?

Unfortunately up to this point, Seventh Star has focused on what we know best: Mathematics and Physical Sciences. We have achieved outstanding results in these disciplines over the past 7 years and our head lecturer has over 25 years of high-quality educational experience.

Do you offer Workshops for Grade 10 and 11’s?

Usually our Workshops are presented to both Grade 11 and Grade 12’s. Unfortunately with all of the unexpected changes that we have experienced throughout 2020 and due to constrained schedules, we will not be offering our Workshops to Grade 11’s.
