Why Should I Attend?

‘Mastering the Exams’ is prepared and presented by a Year 12 Chemistry and Maths teacher, which means that the information and suggestions provided will be tailored to the requirements of a Year 12 student. The lecturer also has significant experience in cognitive science (the study of the brain and its processes), and is a leading study skills expert in Australia.

We’re familiar with the topics covered at other study skills programs, and can therefore confirm that the majority of what you’ll cover in our ‘Mastering the Exams’ lecture is quite different!

Discover the fastest learning technique known to man as well as time-efficient revision strategies. Learn how to save time preparing notes and the most effective way to prepare for your exams.

Each year, the majority of students who complete their VCE do so without knowing the best way to learn, and don’t get the marks they’re capable of. Most students also DON’T approach their exam preparations in the correct manner and waste huge amounts of time on activities that have little impact on their exam marks.

‘Mastering the Exams’ is a powerful exam-focused program designed to help you achieve the highest possible examination marks, and to develop strategies that will give you an advantage over your state-wide peers. You will also

  • Discover the biggest mistakes made by students when preparing for the exams.
  • Develop key skills that are required to out-perform your VCE peers.
  • Learn mark-boosting examination strategies.
  • Learn how to complete exam preparations stress-free, and in the shortest possible time.

You will dramatically reduce stress levels during the challenging weeks leading up to the exams, which will also help to maximise examination marks.

You will greatly improve examination performance and maximise Year 11 and Year 12 marks!
