The University of Newcastle is offering HSC students a helping hand with their studies, and the opportunity to gain new perspectives on their subjects, through a series of workshops tomorrow.
The HSC Study Days give students subject-specific advice, useful study strategies, tips for subject assessments, exam techniques, and time management tactics.
Students from as far away as Dubbo, Tamworth, Port Macquarie, Kempsey, Scone, Sydney and the Central Coast will join local students in sessions at the Callaghan campus tomorrow starting at 9.00am.
Pro Vice-Chancellor, Corporate Development and Community Partnerships, Associate Professor Martin Fitzgerald, said HSC Study Days complimented the work done in NSW High Schools, and provided students with an edge at exam time.
"HSC Study sessions will give students a much-needed motivational boost and added confidence as they head into the exam period," Associate Professor Fitzgerald said.
"The specific subject sessions, run by experienced high school teachers, HSC markers and university staff, focus on how best to address the HSC exam.
"Gaining a different point of view or experiencing a topic in an entirely different way can make an amazing difference to a Year 12 student's understanding of their subject.
"The feedback from HSC Study days over the years has been extremely positive, and the University of Newcastle is pleased to help contribute to HSC students' success."
Subjects to be covered in the workshops include English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Engineering Studies,Personal Development, Health and Physical Education, Business Studies and Legal Studies.
Photo opportunity: Students will be available between 12pm and 1pm in the garden area behind the CT building.
