HSC Biology tutoring - Year 12

HSC Biology tutoring at Dux College covers the entire syllabus, including the 4 core topics Heredity, Genetic Change, Infectious Disease and Non-infectious Disease and Disorders. Our HSC Biology tutoring also heavily focuses on teaching students how to structure assessment responses for different types of assessment questions, and practical skills needed to succeed in HSC Biology.

HSC Biology Course Overview

Our HSC Biology tutoring program starts with the beginning of the year 12 HSC syllabus and over the course of four terms, will comprehensively cover all syllabus dot-points and outcomes of the year 12 HSC Biology syllabus. This course is a continuation of our Year 11 Biology tutoring program.

First-hand Investigations

Did you know all HSC Biology students will eventually have at least one practical skills assessment that counts anywhere from 15% to 30% toward their total HSC internal assessment? Our year 12 Biology tutoring program not only covers the theoretical content of the HSC Biology Syllabus, but also covers all practical skills outcomes and first-hand investigation sections.

We fully prepare our Biology students for their year 12 practical exams!

Depth Study – extra help

Our HSC Biology course will cover all syllabus content and outcomes, preparing students for all exams. While this is enough for most students, some students want extra help with their Depth Study, which is a once-a-year large assessment task that counts for up to 40% of the overall mark.

For enrolled students, we can arrange a one on one tutor to assist with a depth study, from planning, designing the first-hand investigation, and editing the assignment before submitting. Once you receive your assessment notification, please email us for a quote for depth study assistance.
