Year 12 students across the Coast preparing to sit their Higher School Certificate (HSC) trial exams are being encouraged to take advantage of a new online lecture service.
The InspirED lecture series is an initiative of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) implemented to help students prepare for their HSC.
The program is livestreamed so that regional students can also sit in on the lectures anywhere in NSW, from July 10-19.
InspirED is presented by senior teachers and HSC exam markers, with sessions designed to give students insight per subject into proven strategies on how to answer exam questions most effectively and to help students reduce their anxiety to maintain motivation in preparing for the HSC.
Students can register for subjects they want support in from the InspirED website and then will receive a code to access the livestream.
The livestreams will be of sessions being held in a larger series of subject specific lectures in Sydney, the July Trial Preparation Lectures.
InspirED Director, Shane Hardcastle, said that the lectures have grown to be a huge success.
“We run these sessions to give as many students as possible support and advice for the final hurdle of high school.
“The increased numbers we see attending each year in Sydney is a testament to how valuable students find it.”
He said that InspirED has decided to livestream the lectures to help regional students access the same advantages that metropolitan students have.
