Year 12 Virtual Seminars

We are pleased to announce our Virtual Seminars will be available for Year 12 Biology, Chemistry, Mathematical Methods and Physics in the Term 1, 2 and 3 school holidays!

You’ll be able to access our teachers and resources from the safety and comfort of your own home.

Each session will be hosted via Zoom, featuring one of our expert teachers, to deliver the most authentic seminar experience.

You’ll revise the key concepts for each topic, with a focus on exam-specific content, led by one of our expert teachers, accompanied by exclusive revision notes for each topic.

Get in quick! These sessions will book out fast.

Please note, our Virtual Seminar programs are separate from our in-person Revision Seminar programs.

Once booked, ATC staff will send your unique link invitation before your session commences.

Each booking requires a commitment to all sessions.
