Rockingham WACE students get exam help

August 15, 2011

Year 12 students who are preparing for their WACE exams can get some extra help with their studies for free at Murdoch University’s Rockingham campus in September.

The Dixon Road campus is playing host to two WACE Preparation Days on Friday, September 2, and Saturday, September 3, from 8.30am to 4.15pm.

Students will get career and university course advice from Murdoch academics as well as exam tips, essay-writing help and time management advice at the days.

Professor Andrew Taggart, Pro Vice Chancellor of Murdoch University’s Rockingham Campus, said the aim of the study days was to help Year 12 students achieve the best possible results.

“At this time in their lives, it is also important for them to understand the many different entry pathways to the various Murdoch courses,” he said.

“It also helps to ensure that Murdoch University will be at the top of students’ minds when it comes to university choices.

“We hope to see many of these students back at Murdoch as first years.”

Students can attend seminars in English, mathematics, physical education, biology, chemistry, history and study skills at the days. The seminars will be taken by outstanding high school teachers with Murdoch academics attending the beginning of sessions to tell students where their hard work could lead them, and answer questions about courses at Murdoch.

The university’s newly-appointed Regional Recruitment Officer Natasha Brook has been working with all Rockingham and Peel High Schools to encourage a good turn out.
