Comments from high achieving 2012 McKinnon Secondary School students.
"Attending the GTAV lectures not only added to my knowledge, it solidified it. With confident speakers and many great notes, the lectures were beneficial to my studies!" Brigitte Lanters
"Through the GTAV VCE lectures and the supplementary resources provided - particularly those at the end of year revision lecture - I was able to formulate my notes in a clear and concise manner, with complete confidence that I was not neglecting any areas of the study design. What's more, the lectures provided me with an immensely reassuring and rejuvenating sense of motivation, zeal and comfort; helping me to realise that I was capable of achieving the results I so desperately coveted. I strongly suggest attending the GTAV VCE lectures, as the wise words spoken and vital resources provided will give you an unparalleled edge over the students foolish enough to not attend." Marlon Kerstens
"The GTAV lectures were invaluable to my success in Geography in 2012. Not only were they easy to understand and good for knowledge retainment, but also introduced new ideas and techniques that were perfect for use in the exam." Blake Weinberger
"I found the VCE lectures to indeed be very helpful as it really consolidated what I learnt in class, and was an interesting and effective way of revising." Amelia Wardley
"The GTAV VCE Lectures are a fantastic way to gain a well rounded knowledge in Geography. They helped to cover the topics from many angles, providing us students with scope. We received tips as to what the examiners would be looking for and what would set us apart which were easy to put into practice and I feel gave me somewhat of an advantage. The lectures were such an asset and helped to ensure I felt prepared for SAC's and the final exam." Zoe Edwards
