- Here’s my two cents on the highly anticipated, dreaded, motivating ‘ATAR’ (you can see fit which adjective best suits you!). Now that most of you have almost finished your exams, you will be impatiently waiting for your VCE results in December. If you get that perfect score you’re after then congratulations! But what if you fall below the ATAR score you wanted or, if it’s not high enough to get into the course you want to do at university? These questions have been repeatedly asked over several years and this time, I’ve addressed all these ATAR-related type of questions to hopefully alleviate any concerns you may have! This video was created by...Read More
- Hey everyone! This is Part 3 in a series of videos I have released on VCE Study Guides. The content in this series goes through the sample VCAA Chickens Range Free article which you can find here. Feel free to analyse it yourself, then check out how I’ve analysed the article! I’m super excited to share with you my first ever online tutorial course for VCE English/EAL students on How to achieve A+ for Language Analysis!!! I created this course for a few reasons: Language Analysis is often the key weakness for VCE English/EAL students, after my intensive workshops, students always wish we had spent even more time on Language Analysis, many of...Read More
- Hi VCE students! Before you even begin VCE you need to make several important decisions, and even when you are already on the VCE journey, sometimes you can still be ambivalent – which subjects should I do in VCE? While choosing a mere few (5-7) subjects may seem deceptively easy, your choices are often clouded by several other factors – personal interest, subject scaling, subjects your parents think you should do, prerequisites and more! If you’re looking for someone to tell you specifically which subjects you should do, then you’ve got the wrong mindset! No set of subjects will guarantee you that perfect ATAR, but there are several considerations I explore below to help put you...Read More

- For those entering VCE English Langauge 3/4 in 2016, I’d like to give you a quick rundown of what to do these holidays in preparation for next year. The holidays present the perfect time to not only give your body a much needed break but to also prepare yourself for the following year. This time last year actually I had published a similar post to those who finished this year. You can read that here as much of that content is still relevant. I was inspired to rewrite this post again as a new student of mine had told me that he had no issues studying for all of his...Read More
- In my last post on media examples, I outlined some of the key examples for your essay in your upcoming exam. In this post, I will aim to explain this verbally via a YouTube video, while also adding in a few other media examples I’ve observed over the past few weeks! Please note that all articles I reference can be found below the video under ‘References’. I’d recommend reading these articles first before watching the video so you have an idea what I’m talking about. I’d also recommend reading my last post on media examples to also get an idea of the linguistic choices I’ll be referencing. References Netflix and...Read More
- To succeed in your upcoming VCE English Language exam, you need to make sure you appropriately use reading time and writing time. In this article, I will be delving into the complete management plan for your VCE English Language exam! Always remember that TIME is of the essence in the example – it is an asset, and like all assets, it must be used appropriately. You may have an amazing essay that you can do in 5 hours (can’t we all?), but if you can’t write an A+ essay in 45-50 minutes then you will be compromising other parts of the exam! BEFORE THE EXAM Before we begin, I’d like...Read More

- The big trap students doing both English and Literature fall into is the habit of writing Close Readings like a Language Analysis essay. In essence, the two of these essays must tick the same boxes. But, here’s why analysing texts in Literature is a whole different ball game – in English, you want to be focusing on the methods that the author utilises to get their message across, whereas Literature is all about finding your own message in the writing. In a Language Analysis essay, the chances are that most students will interpret the contention of the writer in a similar fashion and that will usually be stated in the introduction...Read More
- The 2015 Unit 3/4 Literature exam is just under 70 days away and it is at this point that students should be practicing Close Analysis essays and working to improve their writing. One of the most prominent questions I receive from students is this: “do I need to write an introduction?”. This is usually followed with “how do I write an introduction?”. Firstly, yes, I believe all students should be writing introductions as they are an excellent way to showcase your ability to provide an insight into your personal “reading” of the text, interpret the passages and allow you an avenue through which to begin your discussion of the material....Read More
