VCE Lecture Series

Headed by successful and knowledgeable past VCE students, Teaching for Impact's end of year revision lectures are a series of lectures that cover VCE subjects from Maths, Science and Humanities. TFI's revision lectures will provide students with a comprehensive understanding of their subject contents, including how to navigate exam style questions, and the best way to approach the exam on the day.
