What our students have to say
"The program enabled me to enhance my studies by providing me with extra skills and resources that allowed me to have an deeper understanding of the concepts I was learning about. Through this, I was able to have an upper hand over my peers because they showed me the expected requirements and ways in which I needed to achieve a Band 6. The program is what obtained by result and I would strongly encourage students to participate in this program."

"HSC in the Holidays was the best thing I did and helped me increase my marks dramatically. Thank you so much!"
Lucy | Kincoppal Rose Bay

Luke | CBHS Lewisham | ATAR: 86.10
"I really enjoyed the program - the revision lectures were really engaging and covered the content in concise detail. I also found the printed revision guides extremely helpful throughout my studying process. As well as gaining more knowledge on each subject, I also greatly appreciated the useful study tips and tricks from the lecturers that school teachers hadn't told us. These revisions definitely helped me achieve the ATAR I got. Thank you."
Oceane | Freshwater Senior Campus (Northern Beaches) | ATAR: 94.95
"The HSC in the Holidays lecture program enabled me to gain a greater insight into what is expected when answering specific styles of questions in the HSC, and the ways in which we can apply our knowledge to the exam question. Attending the lectures provided me with greater access to additional resources and information from HSC markers and teachers, including booklets with practice questions that had not previously been asked in the HSC. This, I feel gave me an extra boost of encouragement and I obtained a greater level of confidence within my studies. The lecturers interacted with individuals and the additional support provided an engaging session, allowing us to learn effective methods of studying content and utilising those skills and techniques when answering particular questions. I feel the lectures had a significant impact not only on my subject marks and ATAR, but my overall HSC experience, making the program a beneficial and worthwhile platform.”
Ashleigh | Newtown High School of the Performing Arts | ATAR: 90.50
"I found HSC in the Holidays to be incredibly helpful in boosting my potential throughout the HSC. They assisted in clarifying information which I may have been unsure of and provided additional material to set me apart in my exams, ultimately improving my marks and ability to express myself in the HSC! I would highly recommend this program to all HSC students looking to achieve their full potential or looking for some extra clarification before their exams."
Harriet | Mt St Benedict’s College | ATAR: 88.85
" I feel that the HSC in the Holidays was extremely helpful as it not only gave me extra tools to study more effectively in the periods before trials and the HSC, but it also motivated me to use these tools during the holidays. It was very helpful as it was able to show me which parts of each course I needed focus on and which parts of the syllabus I fully understood. I feel that the program contribute significantly to my great ATAR result, as it also gave me a wider idea about the state wide competition.”
Ben | Davidson High School | ATAR: 97.40
"HSC in the Holidays provides free HSC resources that are very helpful for studying. Their notes are in-depth and reliable as they have been cross-referenced by professional teachers. I could not have done as well if I did not have access to these resources. Every single syllabus dot-point is covered, providing useful insight for each topic. Furthermore, their lectures are presented by qualified teachers/ lecturers so you know it'll be worth it. I'm glad my friend recommended me because it was a great help during the HSC.”
Jennifer | Fairvale High School | ATAR: 90.80
" I found that participating in the lectures and workshop gave me access to well-presented tips and information that aided my studies, and provided a suitably interactive environment. I believe that the experienced advice presented made a positive impact on my mark.”
James | Newington College | ATAR: 94.15
" I believe HSC in the Holidays made a huge difference in my Advanced English and Business Studies mark because the teachers were extremely helpful in providing knowledge of what we should look out for in the exams and providing examples of previous questions and how to answer them effectively.”
