Prepare for the HSC a smarter way with the UWS HSC Preparation Days

UWSCollege HSC Prep

Cramming for the HSC is common for students, but did you know there’s a smarter way to prepare for the most important exams in your high school life?

UWSCollege is once more proud to announce a series of one day short courses for students looking to improve their exam scores, develop superior study skills and learn new concentration techniques.

The UWS HSC Preparation Days offer a range of short courses in Mathematics, English, Business and Science topics to help students boost their ATAR.

The CEO of UWSCollege, Dr Kerry Hudson, says the program has been developed and will be taught by leading HSC teachers, HSC examiners and UWS academic staff.

“Many students feel flustered and don’t know how to properly prepare as they approach the HSC, and unfortunately miss the opportunity to make the last few months really count,” says Dr Hudson.

“In response to this, since 2010 we’ve offered the UWS HSC Preparation Day courses to help students receive the best advice from leading teachers, and to give them the knowledge and ability to maximise their academic potential.”

The courses will run during the first week of the July winter school break at the UWS Parramatta and Campbelltown campuses, and will include the following topics:

  • Mathematics: General, 2 Unit, Extension 1 and Extension 2
  • ‘Belonging’ with English Standard and English Advanced, English Extension 1
  • HSC Business Studies

In response to student feedback we are also offering three new streams:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and the Environment  at UWS Hawkesbury campus

Participants will review key syllabus content, receive concise explanations and participate in discussions and in-depth question and answer sessions.
