Are you in Year 12 looking for an edge for your upcoming HSC exams? Do you find that you know your theory but still have difficulty with some exam questions?

Are you a Year 11 student looking to get ahead for the HSC course next term? Do you really understand the Preliminary course concepts that are assumed knowledge for the HSC?


Bored of Studies will be hosting FREE seminars for Mathematics and Chemistry for both Year 11 and Year 12 students!

The HSC seminars will largely be about equipping you with useful techniques for tackling the more challenging questions in the upcoming HSC exam. The Preliminary seminars will be largely about preparing you for new syllabus content and getting ready for the onslaught of the HSC course. Our presenters are highly respected contributors to this website and incredibly knowledgable so you will undoubtedly find these seminars very useful!

I would encourage everyone to go to the Math one. I was lucky enough to have Carrotsticks as a tutor and man is he good! I would say the best teacher I've ever had.
10/10 would recommend this seminar

Thanks to those that attended today! Hope you found the seminars informative and useful for your studies.

That was also one of the biggest turnouts we’ve ever had for our HSC seminars! :)
