University of Sydney tutors help students prepare for HSC

The countdown is on to this year’s HSC – but the good news is there is help available to help students prepare.

The Whitlam Library in Cabramatta will host University of Sydney tutors to help students with free HSC exam support during school holidays.

HSCram – a full-day intensive workshop – will be held on September 25 and 26 with a focus on developing practical study skills.

There will be an exam preparation workshop and specialised one-hour group tutoring sessions in a range of subjects include English, mathematics, biology, physics, chemistry, business and economics.

The workshops will be run by current University of Sydney students and explore how to deconstruct questions and take effective notes, how to maximise marks and how to best manage time during exams.

Josephine Wilson, acting Head of Widening Participation and Outreach at the University of Sydney, said HSCram is designed to support Year 12 students as they embark on their final exams.

“We welcome all Year 12 students to take part in the workshops and hone their skills, so they can go into their exams feeling confident and prepared – and also to find out more about university life and their options for the future,” she said.

This is the second HSCram hosted by Whitlam Library with last September 57 students taking part.

Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said: “Education is a path that leads to greater job opportunities and success in life, but it also benefits our community, because university graduates contribute more and take less from society.”
