New matric study guides written by matrics

Presto Academy launched four new Matric Study Guides on Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Accounting. The company is also launching guides on “What they Don’t Teach you in School”.

Founders Fuaad Coovadia and Shivad Singh say Presto Academy's core purpose is to create a community of students who help other students.

They are saying that all their guides have been written by top performing matric students who got 90-100% when they did their matric which makes it easy because they walked the road before.

They are coming in with a new perspective and a way of learning that they can bottle and present to other learners

According to Shivad Singh the guides are based on research to help improve learning and learners can easily relate to topics tackled in the guides.

Both Fuaad and Shivad are students of the University of Cape Town.

The guides can all be accessed on their website www.prestoacademy.co.za
