This is how I achieved perfect marks in chemistry

Dear KIS Student,

You've probably heard other students say this a million times:

"Your 1/2 subjects don't matter."

And to a certain degree they're right! Why should you bother putting in even a couple hours of study time into your 1/2 subjects if it's just going to go to waste. 1/2 subjects you complete in year 11 don't contribute to your ATAR score at the end of Year 12.

Well, not directly at least.

You see, students who say that 1/2 subjects aren't important don't understand that VCE is a long term game. If you're just thinking about the next test or assessment around the corner, you'll be completely oblivious to the bigger picture:

To become a master of Chemistry 3/4 content, you also need to be a master of Chemistry 1/2 content.

Chemistry 3/4 isn't an individual subject sitting in complete independence to what you learn in Year 11.


Chemistry 3/4 requires a thorough understanding of fundamental chemistry concepts that you learn in... you guessed it! Chemistry 1/2.

VCAA has designed subjects in such a way that you're constantly building on prior knowledge. Year 10 subjects set the foundations for year 11 subjects, and year 11 subjects set the foundations for year 12 subjects.

Flunking one of these years is the exact opposite of setting yourself up for success, and can be catastrophic when it comes to hitting your ATAR goals.

Putting in just the right amount of effort in Chemistry 1/2 isn't about getting a perfect score at the end of the year. It's about the long term game. It's about building the knowledge you're going to need to hit the ground running in Year 12.

So don't lull yourself into a false sense of security, thinking that you can cover two years of content - units 1, 2, 3 and 4 - all in year 12 when you have other 3/4 subjects to worry about. Get a head start, put in the work and build your foundational knowledge. It might not mean too much this year but trust me, you'll be thanking me by the time you begin Units 3 and 4 next year.

Let's get started.

Your Tutor

Hi! My name is Tamsyn and I graduated as Dux of Strathcona BGGS, with an ATAR of 99.90, including a raw 50 in Chemistry. Having completed VCE not that long ago, I am familiar with how stressful it can be. However, I am also very aware of how a calm, consistent approach with attention to keeping on top of key concepts and how to apply them, can lead to success. I have a passion for Chemistry, but completely understand it is not everyone’s thing! I also have a strong knowledge base, having completed first year university maths and chemistry.

Having already helped many peers with both the basics and intricacies of Chemistry, I would love to help you understand the mysteries of the subject and achieve your goals.

Throughout VCE, while I undoubtably focussed on my school work, I held several leadership positions and remained involved in many extra curricular activities including swimming, athletics, cross country, debating, string orchestra and academic extension. Maintaining this busy lifestyle forced me to study extremely efficiently and effectively.
I believe I can not only explain content in an engaging and comprehensive way but also help improve your study skills, so you don’t have to sacrifice the activities you love or a solid night’s sleep!

Now I am studying the Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) - Science at the Australian National University, continuing my involvement in sports such as triathlon and running, playing violin, debating and meeting new friends!

Frequently Asked Questions 🙋

What is an online course?

KIS Academics has built a variety of online courses that allows students to learn via in depth and engaging video lessons and activities.
These programs can be accessed through the KIS Course Portal on any device with internet access - anytime, anywhere.
Each course is slightly different depending on the subject, but all contain videos, worksheets, quizzes and more.

How much do the online courses cost?

The prices of our online courses can vary a little bit. Some, like our Mindset Module and Exam Preparation Program are completely free!
Most of our courses however are approximately $8 per week.
You can pay as a monthly subscription or a one-off yearly payment.

You can also access ALL courses with one subscription to KIS Plus which is $20 per week, or free when you begin lessons with a KIS Academics Private Tutor.

When should I enrol?

As soon as you can!
If you want to make the most of your subscription, it's better to start as early as possible since there are so many resources available. Cramming in all the golden nuggets of knowledge these tutors deliver is impossible at the last minute, so you'll want to systematically work your way through them as you go through content at school.

How do payments work?

You can choose to pay in one of two ways:
A monthly subscription that is $32 per month. The subscription auto-renews at the end of the billing period.
A yearly subscription (365 days) that is a one-off $250 payment.

KIS Plus gives you access to ALL online courses, and is $80 per month, or $600 per year. It can also be accessed for free when you begin lessons with a KIS Academics Private Tutor.

What do I get access to during the free trial?

You'll get access to everything during the 7 day free trial!

If I don't like the course, can I cancel?

Of course!
If you decide you don't want to access the course anymore, you can cancel at any time.
You'll be able to access the resources until the end of your billing period (ie. if you're paying for a monthly subscription and cancel halfway through the month, you'll still have access until the end of the month)
