Year 12 Virtual Seminars

Our Year 12 Virtual Seminars are specialty revision programs held online via Zoom in the Terms 1, 2 and 3 school holidays for Biology, Chemistry, Maths Methods and Physics.

Our Virtual Seminars are separate from our in-person revision seminars and have a special focus on exam-specific content led by one of our expert teachers. Each two-hour topic is accompanied by exclusive revision notes.

These sessions are open to students of all abilities and also offer an alternative format for rural and remote students who are unable to travel to attend our in-person seminars.

Get in quick! These sessions book out fast.

*Zoom app required for iOS & Android devices or via your preferred browser for PC/Laptop – https://zoom.us/download
Once booked, ATC staff will send your unique link invitation before your session commences.

Please note each booking requires a commitment to all sessions.
