We are happy to announce that we will begin to offer tutoring in HSC and Preliminary Biology to years 11 and 12. This completes our HSC sciences offering, with Biology, Chemistry and Physics being offered at Dux College.
Term 4 will be the first term of Biology classes, and commences on the 9th of October 2010.
Our Biology course will be taught in the same way as our proven Chemistry and Physics courses. Each week consists of a 2 hour class where a small portion of the syllabus is look at in detail. At the end of each module, we give a practice exam to reinforce and consolidate students’ knowledge.
Our Preliminary Biology course will focus on giving students the skills and conceptual foundations required for maximum success in year 12. Classes will cover the preliminary course, with particular attention being paid to areas relevant to the HSC course. Developing skills is prioritised, such as how to structure extended responses, and how to deal with the different types of HSC exam questions students may face. Students will receive early exposure to HSC exam questions through homework and mock past papers at the end of each term.
Towards the end of the year, students will be in an excellent position to begin coverage of the year 12 syllabus before schools start. This ensures our students are best prepared for the term 1 assessments.
Our HSC course comprehensively covers the entire HSC syllabus and all its requirements, including ‘first-hand investigations’ and other skills dot-points. Everything that is exam-relevant will be looked into in detail.
In the weeks leading up to the trial exams and HSC exams, our classes will receive plenty of revision and exam practice by analysing exam questions from our own collection of materials, from past papers and from past school papers. Teachers will reinforce exam technique, common pitfalls to look out for, and more difficult topics that are likely to be tested in exams.
