What is LoLI?



Chose seven IGCSE subjects. IGCSE is the equivalent to the South African grade 10 and 11. Book and write your exams once you have completed the courses. You now have a grade 11 if you pass five subjects. THEN from your IGCSE subject list chose your AS subjects. AS is the equivalent to the South African grade 12 subjects. Select 2 AS subjects for a straight matric; chose 3 AS subjects for a technicon entrance; chose 4 AS subjects to apply to university. Book and write your exams. You can write all your exams in one sitting, or you can take up to thirteen months to complete them.



Every effort is made by the LoLI community to help you establish your optimal work space. We help you to organise your work area for optimal study; assist you with graphics and wall charts to remind you of important or difficult sections of work; Lots of study tips are supplied; LoLI wants you to feel supported at every step of your journey through school.



Each IGCSE course is divided into three sections. At the end of each section there is a progression exam. Each section is approximately 20 weeks of study time if you are going at it as a full-time student.



IGCSE – A report is generated after the completion of each section. You will receive three reports from LoLI and a final result from Cambridge International Examinations. The reports conform to the South African norms and standards and are suitable as a grade progession report.

Tutors are available online to assist with any challenges that you may have in the course of your studies. Real time forums are monitored by qualified teachers ready to respond to questions.  Many times there will be webinar discussions which open the lecture room to your classroom at home.  

Tutors will assess various tasks and provide meaningful feedback.



Baseline assessment shows us “how much the students already knows”.
Some subjects will use baseline assessment so that we can guage how well the learner has progressed after a certain time.
Formative assessment tells us “how is the student getting along?” Continuous formative assessments monitor and support learning. This helps to “form” or develop the student. Formative Assessment is an ongoing gathering of information over time. Feedback is meaningful and aimed at improving the learning process. Students are given the opportunity to try to improve their performance after formative assessment.
For every subject, there is plenty of practise assessments. Some of these aim to guide the learner to acquire knowledge, skills, and attitudes; other assessments prepare the learner for what to expect when they write an exam.
Diagnostic assessment enables the assessor to “look for the cause of learning problems”. The continuous monitoring of student progress encourages a diagnostic perspective which identifies individual needs. Where barriers to learning have been identifies, enrichment or remediation can be provided as intervention in an effort to ensure improvement of student performance.
Summative assessmentsums up how a student has progressed”. This is applied as a final judgement of a unit of learning. Like formative assessment it is also a from of feedback for students and parents. It points to future in respect to strengths in subjects and possible career paths.
These are the marks that are recorded on the progression reports. As every learner is an different, a variety of assessment instruments are used. Some will take the form of projects, tests, exams, journals, or evidence of coursework.



Each IGCSE course has different assessment criteria. You will be guided to complete your assessments. Some of these assessments will be marked online, others will be marked by your tutor. Meaningful feedback is provided by the tutor.

Assessment feedback is prompt.  We know how important these assessments are to you.  Look at the course trees and you will see certain lessons have SUBMIT at the beginning of the lesson name.  This means that you receive feedback on all those lessons.  Smart hey?
