The importance of long-term preparation for scholarship/ACER-style writing examinations can not be understated. Achievement in this component of the tests can often mean the difference between gaining a scholarship or not. Hence, expert teaching and guidance from our educators is absolutely paramount in order to increase your children’s chances of success.

Students will be exposed to a variety of writing stimuli and will be given strategies and tips in order to write in a variety of styles. Specific examination technique will be addressed which includes time-management and adhering to specific rubric criteria.
