We do more than revise key theory and solve past exam questions.
Each session also includes:
• finer points of exam preparation
• how to decode unusual exam questions
• how to answer questions to the marker’s requirements for maximum marks.

Please note: sessions will run as scheduled on the October 2 public holiday
