  • Personalised feedback on your responses (including detailed solutions in some cases) to give you a better understanding of how to tackle the exam questions.
  • An opportunity to ask questions to senior teachers and markers to clarify any areas you are unsure of.
  • Sit for a full day with HSC experts and cover every aspect of your syllabus in the lead up to the final HSC exams, so you can thoroughly absorb the material.
  • Practice possible HSC questions and receive personalised assistance and support from senior HSC teachers and markers, so you’re properly prepared for your final exam
  • Discover priceless tips and strategies to solve a range of probable HSC questions from teachers who have extensive experience in setting and marking HSC examinations

From experience, we’ve found students who use this time of year most effectively are consistently the ones that achieve Band 6’s in their final exams. The key point being that 50% of your mark for the year comes directly from your result in this exam. So it’s not something you can take lightly.

What Kind Of Results Can You Expect?

Our September workshop is designed with one purpose in mind… to help you achieve the best possible result in your final HSC exam, and ultimately your ATAR rank… so you can launch your dream career.

Since we started in 2005, our students have averaged an improvement in marks of 17%. In simple terms, this means that if you are currently in Band 4 or 5, you have a chance to achieve Band 6 results. Even if you are scoring in the high 80’s at the moment, this program will give you the chance to boost you well into the 90’s. Imagine the difference another 10 or more marks will be on your final ATAR.
