ABOUT THIS WEBINAR

Given the disruption to education, many teachers and students might be very concerned about gaps in foundational knowledge. This webinar is designed to help address these concerns by building on knowledge and skills developed in year 12, help encourage retrieval of knowledge and prime students for success in year 13.

This interactive webinar will provide essential tips on what the examiners are looking for and pitfalls to avoid, from an experienced senior examiners point of view. Students will gain insight on how to use their knowledge and understanding gained from carrying out their four Key Questions in Social; Cognitive; Biological and Learning Theories throughout Y12 to address specific exam questions about these Key Questions.
