Exam Techniques & Strategies

During the course of our “Exam Techniques & Strategies” lectures, students will learn vital skills that will help optimise performance in school-based assessments, as well as strategies that will maximise learning and cut down on study time.

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

Mastering the Exams
