Serious Students

Any Year 12 who is serious about acing their final year of schooling, whether you’re an extremely high-achieving student or needing extra consolidation.

A COMPREHENSIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCE

Master all examinable aspects of topics covered in Year 12 SACE

Crafted by our highly knowledgeable and experienced tutors, including Co-Founders John Kalyvas (99.65 ATAR, BSc) and Archer Newton (99.95 ATAR), our 5-day Headstart masterclasses teaches you everything we know about what it takes to do well in year 12. Immerse yourself in the process and leave the class mastering 3 skills that provide you with an incredible head-start and true advantage over your peers.
 

Almost all students lack a flawless approach to year 12. We’re here to change that.

 

Outcome #1 - Exam-Level Knowledge

Although exams are not until end of year, these exams are more difficult than any test that you will sit for this year. We’ll show you exactly how to answer the hardest question types found in the most recent Year 12 exams and prepare you for unexpected “curveball” questions. We will remove all the guesswork in trying to figure out the most important and difficult aspects of SACE exams. 

Outcome #2 - Highly Efficient Study Techniques

We know exactly why students who have studied ridiculous amounts still underperform. You’ll learn the newest and most effective study techniques from tutors who have taught hundreds of students to great success. If you study the same as everyone else, how can you really expect to score significantly higher? You can’t, so you’ll leave the course with a new skill set, knowing what to implement to reach academic success.

Outcome #3 - A Clearcut Year 12 Strategy

You’ll walk away knowing with incredible insight and self-awareness of your weaknesses and preparation required for the year ahead. We’ll teach you step-by-step what preparation must look like from here to guarantee success, and we’ll share why we see many high-achieving students underperform, despite working so hard. Then, you’ll know exactly what to do and how to not waste valuable time in your most critical schooling year.

AIM ACADEMICS

John Kalyvas founded Aim Academics to transform the way Year 12 SACE students approach their studies. Each year, our team witnesses hard-working students spending countless hours studying, only to under-perform in the tests or the final exam, despite doing well in year 11. Recognising that so many students’ academic short-comings are due to inefficient study and a lack of a foundational understanding, we have endeavoured to revolutionise student’s approach to study. 

We’ve helped hundreds of students successfully enter into their dream courses and achieve impressive ATARs. We are passionate about helping as many students as possible unlock their true academic potential.

Learn what makes this course unique and why students are raving on about it.
I would highly recommend Aim Academics. The sessions are extremely informative and the teaching styles make the content easy to understand no matter your experience level. The pricing is excellent, especially considering that you receive print outs of exam style questions as well as the lecture. Many of my friends who attended these sessions as well as the revision seminars run by the Universities (which cost hundreds of dollars) reported that Aim Academics were much more helpful.

I liked how the more difficult parts of the topic were covered to a higher level of depth, as this ensured that the time was used to give maximum benefit to the students, rather than simply cover the content.

Absolutely loved John’s teaching style, loved the way that I was able to make connections and understand the content without having to memorise anything.

Easy going. Knowledgeable. Very intelligent.

2020 Yr 12 Graduate (99.90 ATAR, College Dux, 5 Merits: English, Research Project, General Maths, Psychology, Chemistry, Biology, Governor of South Australia Commendation - Excellence Award).
Aim Academics is a wonderful option for students looking to either refresh their minds, gain an introduction to key topics, or a little bit of both! John was an extremely engaging tutor, with invaluable insight as to how to best prepare yourself for and navigate through Year 12 study. It was refreshing to have a tutor who has recently gone through the same subjects (and stress!) that I am about to enter into, who is also enrolled in a relevant university degree. The environment is comfortable but stimulating, and any questions are happily answered without any rushing through. The sessions themselves and the access to extra content is well worth the very fair pricing. I feel much more confident going into my classes, and I fully intend to return for more tutoring. I can't recommend Aim Academics enough!

The Aim Academics Headstart course does not only help you for the beginning of the year, but it prepares you for the whole year of school and beyond, especially with the discussion on study techniques. The seamless teaching is so helpful and the patience shown by Archer was great! I would highly recommend the Headstart course and any other as it literally covers most of what you need to know for the year. The fundamentals. Thank you Archer.

Preparing for Exams

Many students find end of year exams challenging.

Hundreds of hours are required to revise a year’s worth of content, and effective preparation is vital in achieving success.

Having recently excelled as students, we uniquely understand the skills and techniques required to obtain outstanding results.

At Aim Academics, we strive to educate our students so they too can succeed.

How We Can Help

Our exam revision courses will not only teach you the course content, but prepare you with skills and techniques to study and manage your time effectively.

With Aim Academics you can:

  • Learn from high-achieving tutors
  • Develop study techniques you can apply throughout your academic life
  • Acquire effective exam preparation and time management skills
  • Adopt evidence-based exam strategies and techniques
  • Become proficient in answering questions by applying your existing knowledge
  • Succeed

Exams require more than just the memorisation of facts; they require problem solving and abstract thinking – skills that cannot be learnt from course content alone.

This course is for Stage 2 SACE students who are looking to gain a real competitive advantage and excel with high marks in their final exams. Our courses are designed for any student wanting to reduce the stress associated with exam preparation by learning exactly how to answer all the common question types in each SACE exam while being prepared for any curveball questions. For any student that wants to better guarantee exam and ATAR success, we will teach them all the tricks within SACE exams and help them develop a bulletproof exam strategy.

If you’re looking to learn from experts in helping students succeed in an interactive and advice-rich environment, level up your knowledge and exam preparation skills based off evidence-based learning strategies, and finish the class with a very clear vision for what to focus and study before exams, this class is for you.

Each of our courses go for 5-days (from Monday 17th to Friday 21st January). By the end the course, you’ll walk away with an impressive bunch of exam-taking strategies, exam-level comprehension and mastery of certain question types found in the most recent SACE exams, and a super clear vision of how to undertake your exam preparation By the end, you’ll know exactly what to expect for the end of year exams.

On each day, the session will last 2 hours where our tutors will share everything that is most important for the exams and where almost all students, including high-achievers, always seem to lose marks. There is also a lot of opportunity to consolidate and apply your knowledge with our highly targetted exam-level questions that focus on the biggest misconceptions almost all students have. Knowing this can prevent the loss of tens of marks in your exam.

You will learn about every aspect required to achieve exam success. You will be learning a lot more beyond just revisiting the material. You’ll learn exactly what concepts are most important to know to smash your exams and where students, including high-achievers, are always losing marks. Particularly, you’ll how to spot the common tricks SACE puts in the exams. You’ll learn the most effective study and exam preparation techniques our students use, as well ourselves. You’ll know exactly what your topic weaknesses are and how to fix them and then walk away having a clearcut exam preparation strategy to take up until year 12 exams.

Our advice is much further beyond techniques than just ‘active recall’ and ‘spaced repetition’ and everything you learn you’ll be able to apply to your remaining assessments to maximise your marks for the rest of the year.

Each course runs for 5 days, 2 hours a day whereby our tutors will review concepts covered in the first semester, introduce concepts to be covered in the remainder of the year, all with an ‘exam-specific’ focus; how such concepts present in the end-of-year exam & how you should go about preparing. We provide students with exam-style booklets each day of the course, written by our experienced tutors and tailored to the course – allowing you to become proficient in answering even the most difficult questions.

Each session is recorded and uploaded for student access, so you don’t have to miss out!
