Online classrooms are a great substitute for classrooms that you can physically attend, but, unfortunately, not everyone has access to them. Luckily, we have some alternatives that you can use to keep your marks up regardless of the situation. Here they are.


CellCgirl provides all sorts of tools you can use if you’re studying from home. These range from past papers to study guides that you’re able to download for free from the Downloads section of our website. You can also take a look at our study section, if you need tips to help you get those As.

The National Department of Basic Education

The National Department of Basic Education website has many useful study resources. Much like our website, the DBE offers multimedia study material like audio and video clips as well as written study guides that you can download. Not only that, but you’re able to share these with friends who need them too.


YouTube is a great streaming platform, and although many people use it for more fun things, it has so much more to offer. You can find many online lessons that you can watch by searching for the subjects you’d like to focus more on. Although it may be a little bit weird to use this platform to study if you’ve never done it, the trick is to not get distracted and focus on the studying. One way to do this would be to turn off any notifications or use the offline download feature so that you can turn off your data while studying.


It’s perfectly normal to come across sections or subjects that you may not understand, which is why it’s best to communicate this with people who are close to you. Speaking about what you’re struggling with is the only way you’ll be able to get help. If you have siblings, get them on board to help you, or reach out to friends who may have a better understanding of what you’re struggling with. You could also reach out to your teachers if you have access to them.

We know you’re used to learning in an actual classroom with your peers and teachers present, but this change doesn’t have to affect your marks. There are loads of online resources you can use to get some extra help. Check out our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages for study advice, or can get in touch with us via AskCellCgirl. Good luck!
