Term 4, 2018 Year 12 Students – English, Physics and Chemistry

In Term 4 2018, Year 12 students will start learning the new HSC curriculum for English, Physics and Chemistry. Stepping Stones Education will begin Year 12 content on the week start 8th October 2018.

With our current Year 11 students entering our HSC courses in a matter of days, we would like to provide you with some information that has helped students transition and understand these changes.

If you are starting Year 12 yourself, or know someone who is, this article will provide you with all the information you need to know on how Stepping Stones Education is approaching the new syllabus and how you can take the advantage.

Stepping Stones Education Approach to HSC English

 

For new Year 12 students, English Advanced and Standard courses at all schools will adopt the new syllabus requirements that begin in Term 4, 2018. Our HSC courses have updated to cater for these changes to ensure student success. Such changes include:

  • English Advanced – An introduction of a new Common Module: Human Experiences and Module C: The Craft of Writing
  • English Standard – An introduction of a new Common Module: Human Experiences, Module A: Language, Identity and Culture and Module C: The Craft of Writing
  • Stronger emphasis on student English written ability.

On top of this, NESA has announced two significant changes that impact HSC testing for English and that is a push for fewer assessments, meaning students would only sit four internal assessments, and removing the need for students to memorise essays completely for an English exam.

These changes mean that students who are looking for high marks at the end of their HSC examinations will need to adapt and overcome challenges that have not existed for ex-year 12 students. As such, we have considered these challenges in our newly developed HSC courses for English, where students will learn how to intuitively form responses and demonstrate strong English ability through well structured courses that take them through their modules and core texts.

Our English courses are structured around the following:

  • 10 Week Course on Common Module: Human Experiences
  • 10 Week Course on Module A
  • 10 Week Course on Module B
  • 10 Week Course on Module C
  • Half Yearly, Trial HSC and HSC Mastery Courses.

For a limited time we are offering all enrolments regarding the New Syllabus a 5% discount on the first semester. To find out more, or to enrol into a free-trial lesson for our English classes, follow the form at the end of the article. 

Stepping Stones Education Approach to HSC Science

 

Stepping Stones Education has provided quality tuition for Physics and Chemistry students since its first introduction in 2016. Since then, students who have passed through our science courses have been provided with in-depth and personalised teachings that have assisted them in their understanding of course requirements for both textbook theory and examination work.

In Term 4, 2018, the changes the HSC science courses will come into action and students who are unprepared may miss a great opportunity to differentiate themselves from the rest of their cohort. Such changes include:

  • New theory and concepts for Chemistry
  • New theory and concepts of Physics
  • A stronger focus on formula and mathematical principles for Physics Study
  • A removal of ‘option’ topics from both Physics and Chemistry

Our Year 12 Physics Course covers the following topics:

  • Advanced Mechanics (New)
  • Electromagnetism (New)
  • The Nature of Light  (New)
  • From the Universe to the Atom (New)
  • Half Yearly, Trial HSC and HSC Mastery Courses

Our Year 12 Chemistry Course covers the following topics:

  • Equilibrium and Acid Reactions (New)
  • Acid/Base Reactions (New)
  • Organic Chemistry (New)
  • Applying Chemical Ideas (New)
  • Half Yearly, Trial HSC and HSC Mastery Courses

For a limited time we are offering all enrolments regarding the New Syllabus a 5% discount on the first semester. To find out more, or to enrol into a free-trial lesson for our Science classes, follow the form at the end of the article.
