EXAM REVISION For FCCC Students only 






  Kick Start 

















Students should plan and structure their  approach to exam revision

In order to allow yourself the time for a full and comprehensive revision you should devote sufficient time revising  each area of study as covered in class by Mr Clyne 


Remember there  is no simple way or direct short cut in  revising  and preparing-  but there is a smarter way - and thats about getting started early- and being consistent in revising and completing practice exams . The end of year exam accounts for a large percentatge of your study score so its certainly worth devoting as much time and energy that you can

Exam format  - students should read  through the official VCAA exam specifications  document found at this link
