Summer School

Get Ahead, Reduce Stress & Improve VCE Marks

Dates: Tuesday 7 January to Friday 24 January 2020
Venue: The University of Melbourne

The VCE involves a lot of hard work and it’s easy to fall behind. It’s therefore important that students use the quiet periods to catch up and, where possible, get ahead in their studies.

The summer break gives students the opportunity to get ahead and to reduce stress levels and study loads in 2020.

Working through materials on your own, however, can be tedious, time-consuming and ineffective. Our “Summer School – Head Start” program has therefore been designed to help you secure the best possible advantage in the VCE in a time-efficient and relatively painless manner!

  • You will work through key Unit 1 or Unit 3 topics to an A+ standard, in a relaxed, step-by-step manner.
  • You will receive advance exposure to SAC and examination-style questions.
  • You will work through the applications that typically appear in the “open book” examinations.
  • You will learn the problem-solving skills that are needed to secure the higher SAC and examination marks.
  • You will receive valuable advice from prominent and successful teachers and exam assessors, giving you a further edge in the VCE.

Detailed and comprehensive A+ notes will be provided in each subject.

Students who work through subject materials in advance will quickly see the benefits when the same topics are covered at school. While other students struggle to understand new concepts being presented in class, you’ll be hearing this information for the second time. As a result:

  • Your understanding of examinable materials will increase.
  • You’ll write fewer notes in class, allowing you to direct your full attention to what your teachers are saying.
  • Your ability to apply concepts will greatly improve.
  • You’ll get more out of your classes at school, reducing the need for private tutors.
  • You can use the time spent in class consolidating learnings and to ask your teachers the tough and insightful questions you wouldn’t usually think of until you’re revising for a test or exam.
  • You won’t get stuck on questions as frequently, reducing the time you’ll need to spend on homework.
  • You’ll ingrain examinable materials into long-term memory, decreasing the time and effort that is needed to prepare for SACs and exams!
  • You’ll develop more confidence in your abilities.
  • You’ll be less likely to procrastinate your studies, reducing stress levels and study loads across the year.
  • You’ll achieve higher VCE marks.

So maximise your holidays and save hundreds of hours in study time with the TSFX Head Start lectures.

This unique lecture is designed to motivate, empower and organise students, and ensure they have the skills and information that will be required to maximise VCE marks. Students will also receive exclusive advice and instruction in the following key topics:

  • The 7 secrets to VCE success.
  • Key strategies used by past students to excel in the VCE.
  • The most effective and time-saving learning and revision techniques.
  • Keeping learned materials in memory for longer periods of time.
  • Getting the most out of classes at school.
  • Stress management and effective procrastination remedies.
  • Planning effective daily study timetables.
  • Optimising brain function
  • Preparing for the examinations.

Many of the skills and techniques that will be addressed have been proven to cut down on study time and markedly improve VCE marks but are not known (or practised) by the majority of students. Detailed notes will be provided to students on the day.

Our “Advanced Essay Writing Skills” lecture will provide systematic, foolproof strategies that will enable students to construct sophisticated and detailed responses in their SACs and exams. Essay scaffolds and models will be provided, simplifying the complex and bewildering task of composing an English essay. By incorporating practical steps, exercises and detailed examples, this lecture will boost students’ confidence in English and will greatly improve VCE marks!

You will be taught by and receive up to date advice from official exam assessors (the focus of the exams and the marking schemes change on a regular basis). Assessors have access to important information that many teachers aren’t aware of, and which can make a significant difference to your ATAR result.

Knowing how the exam marking system works also gives assessors the ability to guide you through the exam preparation process in the quickest and most effective way. You’ll spend your time revising what really matters, and you can’t get that kind of guidance from recent high school graduates who have no teaching experience, and who don’t have access to the detailed insights our teachers provide.

The world’s leading educational specialists agree that lectures are the fastest and most effective way to revise and consolidate large amounts of information in a short time frame. Not only is it much faster to have an experienced teacher take you through the revision process, using audio and visual delivery processes enables you to work through and remember 5 times more information than if you were to work through the same materials on your own.

TSFX is highly regarded for the quality of our program materials – our students receive the most comprehensive and detailed exam preparation notes available that include every key concept that could be examined, as well as hundreds of examination-style questions that are not commercially available. As an example, students who attended our recent ‘Unit 3 Exam Revision Lectures’ received the following materials, saving them countless hours in exam preparation time:

Chemistry: Over 400 pages of notes and 320 exam-style questions.
Maths Methods: Over 400 pages of notes and 300 exam-style questions.

We constantly invest in our courses and materials to ensure our students receive every possible advantage in their VCE.

Our notes are improved and extended upon each year so that they reflect the annual changes in examination marking and question trends. To help make your exam preparations even easier, we integrate the important concepts and applications from the main textbooks and study resources into our course materials.

Note:

No other program provider has been able to match the quality and depth of materials that are issued to students who attend TSFX programs.

You will gain thorough exposure to the questions and tricks that could appear in the exams. (Students regularly comment that many of the questions they cover during our programs appear in the actual exams!)

You will correct problem areas and to hear information from a different perspective – improving the quality of exam responses and how well information can be applied in unfamiliar applications.

You will dramatically reduce stress levels during the semester and find more time for leisure activities.

You will dramatically reduce stress levels during the semester and find more time for leisure activities.

You will learn how examination papers are marked, how answers must be presented if they are to be awarded full scores, why common responses do not earn marks and how to minimise mistakes in the exams. The majority of class time is spent working through examination-style questions, as well as those questions that will serve to differentiate between the A/A+ and B grade scores.

You will minimise procrastination opportunities and ensure you get the most from your study sessions.

You will greatly improve your confidence levels and maximise Year 11 and 12 marks!
