Biology Unit 3 and 4 - 'Advantage 10+' AND 'Extension 17' Classes - Intensive Weekly Tutorials

Students will be given a thorough revision of all Units 3 and 4 Areas of Study including: How do cellular processes work?; How do cells communicate?; How are species related?; How do humans impact on biological processes?; and Analysis and evaluation of a practical investigation.

Each weekly tutorial class addresses the finer details of the VCAA Study Design. This ensures that students receive the most in depth examination preparation possible. Weekly sessions run for 3 hours and will thoroughly revise all examinable Areas of Study in Unit 3 and 4 Biology. 

Each week our expert teachers will encourage students to ask questions to clarify any area that require more attention.  Our teachers will systematically and comprehensively review the weekly content, examination style questions and any School-assessed Coursework that the students need to go over.
