An automatically generated password will be created for you by Google. This may be changed at any time by the student.
A confirmation email will be sent to you with a link to confirm your username and password. Once your email address and password has been created you are registered as a student.
There is currently one types of subscription you may select from, namely the Select Package.
The information you provide must be accurate and complete. You must safeguard your password and supervise the use of your account. Every person must register their own account and you are not entitled to permit anyone other than you to use your account. We will assume that anyone using the Site or transacting through your account is you. You agree that you are solely responsible for any activity that occurs under your account. If you find out that someone has used your account without your permission, you should report it firstname.lastname@example.org
By registering as a student and using the Services you confirm that you have the consent of your parent or legal guardian (where necessary) to do so, which includes the obligation to make payments for such Services.
Your account will only be activated once you have made payment. Please see “Fees and Payment” below.
In the event that you make an error and subscribe to the wrong levels and/or subjects, you must contact Educlined within 24 hours, Educlined will, in its sole discretion, determine the course of action to resolve the issue, which may include, but is not limited to, a credit card refund, an EFT refund of the excess amount paid, or requiring you to pay any shortfall.
3. Fees and Payment
Tuition fees are dependent on what subjects you take and what level you are on. If you would like a consultation with one of our experienced advisors, please contact Educlined via WhatsApp on 0833837649. Alternatively, send an email to and we will get back to you.
A subscription lasts 12 months – i.e. you get 12 months of access to the levels you have subscribed to, including all learning content and teacher support (where applicable). At the end of the 12 month subscription, your account will automatically be deactivated by the system.
A non-refundable once-off registration fee will be charged when signing up.
When you subscribe you will have the option to pay via Credit Card, Debit Card, EFT or through the safe and secure Payfast payment portal.
If you elect to pay by way of EFT, an invoice will be emailed to you and you are required to pay 100% up front (no payment plan options via EFT). Once we have received 100% of the funds, we will activate your subscription and access to our Site.
If you elect to pay via Credit Card or Debit Card, Educlined will not be liable if your bank does not honour the transaction for any reason whatsoever. For example, if your bank declines the transaction due to insufficient funds, transaction limits, or if the card’s banking association is not accepted by Educlined’s third party payment gateway.
Should you have elected to pay your subscription over 5 months, and the student finishes their course in a shorter time period, you are still liable to complete all payments until the full amount owing has been paid.
Should you wish to cancel your subscription please contact us at email@example.com . Please note that a cancellation fee may be charged.
Affiliates Subscription Purchases:
It is possible to purchase subscriptions via a third-party network of affiliates.
It is important to note that these affiliates are independent contractors and are not employees or representatives of Educlined.
Should you purchase a subscription from a third-party and we do not receive payment for any reason, your account will not be activated (or will immediately be suspended) and we will not incur any liability in this regard. In such a case you will need to take this up directly with the affiliate through whom you purchased the subscription.
Our prices are based in South African Rands. Currency conversions are handled by your bank and calculated at the time of your payment.
Our tuition fees don’t include the cost of textbooks, nor the cost of exams. Please note that exams for International GCSE and AS and A Level are administered by accredited Cambridge Exam Centres or British Councils, who charge a separate fee.
If your payment is not received or declined your access to the Site will be suspended.
Should you wish to cancel your subscription please contact us and request details on our Cancellation Policy.
Please note that penalty fees may be charged for terminating your subscription. These penalty fees are calculated based on how long your subscription has been activated and are levied within our sole discretion.
No cancellations will be accepted if your account has been active for 72 hours or longer.
We reserve the right to cancel your subscription at anytime without a refund should you breach any of these Terms.
It is important to note that Educlined is not an accredited or registered Cambridge International School. Students who write their Cambridge International GCSE and AS/ A Level exams will receive their accreditation directly from Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE).
You are responsible for selecting your subjects and courses and we bear no responsibility or liability in this regard. What subjects you take is important for your career and must be carefully considered with the guidance of parents and qualified subject advisors.
Courses are selected online on the Site. The ultimate responsibility is your own and we cannot accept any liability should your subject selection disqualify you from further studies.
It is the Parents and student’s responsibility to do the necessary research to ensure that the student has met the minimum requirements for university entrance and their university of choice.
Assignments are created by teachers. Assignments are marked by our teachers.
Marking of an assignment usually takes place within 7 – 10 working days from the date on which the completed assignment is uploaded. However, this time period is an estimate only and depends on the volume of assignments submitted.
Students must complete their own assignments independently as instructed (i.e. time and resources allowances) and without assistance from parents / friends / students / unauthorised resources (including online search engines). We rely on the students and parents to act in good faith in this regard and if it is found that any student has breached any of the above conditions, or assisted someone else, the student(s) in question may be expelled from Educlined without any refund of monies paid.
For Primary and Checkpoint Stage packages, Educlined Junior and Educlined provides and marks exams. The timing of your exams is entirely at the discretion of the student's family. Our teachers will provide guidance on whether or not the student is ready to write. However, the ultimate responsibility rests with the parents and the students themselves. Parents/guardians are required to carry out the exams as Educlined has instructed them to do so, by providing an environment that prevents the student from cheating and by giving the student the specified time limit.
From International GCSE upwards, as an independent learner, you need to write the Cambridge Assessment International Education at a Cambridge International test venue that accommodates “private candidates”. Our teachers will provide guidance on whether or not the student is ready to write the Cambridge International Exams. However, the ultimate responsibility rests with the parents and the students themselves. You are responsible for making your own exam arrangements with your preferred test centre and must liaise directly with them as only private candidates can register themselves. The cost of the exams is not included as part of our fees. You can find a test centre near you by using the following website: https://help.cambridgeinternational.org/hc/en-gb.
Exams may be written twice a year – in May and June, and in October and November each year. All schools or exam centres set their own exam fees to cover both Cambridge International costs and the use of their facilities and proctors. You should contact the exam centre at least three months ahead of time. Please note that certain subjects are only written once a year, at the end of the year.
8. Online Chat, Live Groups Sessions (Q&A’s) and Live Lessons
Online Chat via GChat - Teachers may reply via text, voice notes or videos or on email. We accept no liability should a teacher fail to respond to any question.
Live Group Sessions: These are at the discretion of the tutor and/or subject. Some subjects have a vast video library and require no further live sessions. Other tutors and/or subjects may host live sessions once a week, bi-weekly or once a month. Educlined has no strict policy around this and the choice to host a live session is at the specialist subject tutor’s discretion. By accessing the live group session you consent to your personal information being used for this purpose. All Live group sessions are placed on the Google Classrooms once completed.
Please note that these above sessions/lessons/online chats may not be available in your geographic region and we do not accept any liability should you not be able to access or participate in them.
The views, thoughts, and opinions expressed by the tutors belong solely to the tutor, and do not necessarily reflect the view of Educlined. We do not accept any liability for any comments, opinions or views expressed by the teachers at any time.
