“Fantastic presentation full of valuable advice and information. Great interaction with us through the day with options to ask questions and receive comprehensive answers from an experienced presenter. Course overview is brief but that is evidently not the focus of the program but rather discussing the end of year exam, techniques and tips to try and improve our score.
A Chisolm McKinnon Secondary College.
“Most worthwhile, plenty of in depth and thought provoking examples and detailed instructions on how to best tackle exam questions. Much more than surface level course revision. I would not hesitate to recommend it.”
Student Melbourne High School.
“ I enjoyed having only a brief overview of the course and the fact that it was a more specific day to focus on the end of year exam. I already know the course and wanted to focus on mastering the exam and the workshop was perfect for this. An engaging day which I believe will enhance my exam performance.”

“High quality revision material and advice. Had not received any like it previously.The comprehensive analysis of each exam from previous years in regards to which topics from the course they contained were extremely helpful. Also the focus on the most difficult questions , I found was a great approach and beneficial way to revise.”
