Welcome back to Term 4, we hope you have had a restful break with family and friends.
Our Year 12 students are now in the last two weeks of formal classes and some VCE exams get underway as early as this week. Students will be receiving feedback from the recent practice exams, and they are encouraged to use this to prioritise their revision. All students should develop a detailed study plan that includes clear targets and incorporates regular feedback from class teachers. They should reward themselves when these goals are achieved and adjust their plan when they fall short. Managing distractions is especially important at this time of year and we encourage all students to honestly reflect on how this can best be achieved. Temporarily disabling social media or handing over the mobile phone to a parent during study time are simple things that can make a big difference when trying to concentrate.
All information about VCAA examination timetables has gone to students studying a Unit 3 and 4 subject some time ago. You are able to check the VCAA exam timetable on their website.
Things parents can do to help students prepare for exams include;
These things will help ensure that all of the student’s good work through the year can be fully utilised in the exam. Best wishes to all the students sitting VCE exams (and their families!) in the coming weeks.
Please keep in mind the following dates regarding exams for the rest of the College:
The construction of our 2020 Timetable has commenced and we hope to start releasing 2020 subjects by the end of this month. Students will receive this information in an email, which will go directly to their school email address and students will be able to apply for a subject change in the two weeks after subject confirmations are given out. A reminder that no requests for subject changes can be accepted until then.
