Vicki and Adrian have developed expertise in VCE Accounting identifying those issues that are relevant and important to students preparing for their
examination. In this workshop, they will focus students’ attention on those areas that continue to trouble even the ‘brightest students.’ The workshop
will commence with an overview of the course, before Vicki and Adrian isolate the four areas of study and use them as a foundation from which to
prepare students for the examination. Common problems areas will be clarified, relevant past exam questions will be explored, and possible questions
for the 2011 examination will be analysed. Students will be shown how to simplify or ‘unpack’ difficult questions, minimising the risk of errors, and
will be provided with strategies to help deliver concise and accurate responses that impress the assessors. If you are a student aiming for a 40+, but
require that extra ‘something,’ then this workshop could be the key!
The workshop will commence at 9.15am, with two short breaks, as well as a 45 minute recess for lunch, before concluding at 5.00pm. All participants will be
provided with morning and afternoon tea in addition to lunch and refreshments.
