The service, the brainchild of Telkom, in partnership with Extramarks, is offered a no charge to existing and new mobile and fixed post-paid customers.

It is said to be the most structured and interactive offering of its kind currently in the marketplace.

It covers English, Life Science, Physical Science, Natural Science and Maths from Grade R to matric and is structured into multimedia-rich ‘Learn’, ‘Practice’ and ‘Test’ modules.
