I've compiled some practical tips that should equip you prior to entering the warzone of Year 11 and 12. Even though there is no way to predict the precise play-by-play of high school life, that doesn’t mean that you can’t train and strategise to ensure you have the optimal chance of emerging victorious from the battlefield of Years 11 and 12.
You’ll rarely find a successful student who didn’t possess a strong sense of organisation. When you’re juggling 5-6 different subjects, often you don’t have any choice but to be. What’ll free up your mind is to have a flexible roadmap of how you want your year to progress. Set broad goals such as when you’d like to finish parts of the curriculum, when you’d like to start doing practice exams, and how many you’d like to do. This’ll do two things – a) keep you accountable during your Year 12 journey, and b) force you to get vaguely familiar with the concepts that you’ll be covering over the next 12 months or so. Keep these goals in mind, but don’t steadfastly rely on them as you progress throughout the year, because your most important priority should be to be kind to yourself.
Even soldiers going to war need to be well-rested for optimal performance. Enjoy the rest of your holiday break before re-embarking on your academic pathway so that you’re excited to give everything you have to the coming year. After all, if you’re embarking on a journey, you’d want to get going on a full tank of gas!
How many times have you heard the phrase, ‘Year 12 is a marathon, not a sprint’? It’s cliched, because it’s true. Burnout is an extremely common phenomenon amongst students, and it can be extremely detrimental to your mental health and subsequent academic performance.
Firstly, prepare for it to be a taxing year. Prepare for exam marks that you weren’t expecting despite putting in hours of study. Prepare for teachers who might not meet your expectations. Prepare for sacrifice and disappointments, but also know that these won’t define your final score, nor should it affect your personal sense of value or belief system. Things won’t necessarily go your way, but these things will make you stronger and more determined.
Making the most of school holidays is an important way for students to get ahead at school. If you ever need some assistance with preparing for the school term or subject specific help, KIS Academics holiday tutors have a thorough understanding of their subjects and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements. Our tutors are able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for the school term.

As a year 11 student doing ATAR, I was looking for a tutor that could help me with French. KIS Academics was incredibly helpful and fast at finding me a wace french tutor who could assist me with my studies. My tutor Eliza Carey over the past few months has helped me so much not only in French but in biology and maths as well. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and commitment she has put into helping me be more comfortable and less stressed about the subjects I was having difficulty with. It’s been nothing but an honour to be tutored by Eliza and I strongly recommend her as a tutor

Hey guys! I’m Elena and I’m here to say: I get it. VCE can be difficult. So no matter whether you’re aiming for the top or just trying to survive this crazy thing we call school, my ultimate mission is to help make things easier for you. I can be your certified secret weapon!
I graduated as the Dux of my high school with an ATAR of 99.60. I also received a VCE Premier's Award for Excellence in English. I completed six subjects total, two of them in Year 11 as accelerated subjects- so I can help out with the extra questions, skills and uncertainty that comes with doing VCE early.
I have years of teaching experience at a Saturday school and I am myself the product of good tutoring- so I can combine personal experience as both the student and the teacher to create a balanced, tailored, welcoming and relatable tutoring process for you.
Aside from the content itself, as a VCE survivor I am able to help out with general tips and tricks- all the things that will ultimately help you help yourself!
I left high school happy with my six years there - a feeling which I hope to impart to you. Whether that means improved grades, better studying skills or a greater enjoyment of a subject, I will be there to help that happen and have some laughs along the way!
Hi, my name is Emma Ashley and I graduated in 2020 with a 99.45 ATAR. Since then, I have gone on to study Law with Honours and PPE, politics philosophy and economics, at the Australian National University. I have been involved with KIS Academics in many capacities over the last 2 years, namely as the NSW state consultant, Events manager, Sales Manager, English Advanced Online Course developer and the Productivity Planner creator.
I have been tutoring since I finished my HSC, with approximately 20 hours of lessons every week. This means across the past (close to) 3 years I have tutored 60+ students … and counting! Why you may ask? Because I genuinely love sharing knowledge with others. There is nothing more valuable to me than seeing a student become excited to learn, the ‘ah ha’ moment where they finally understand or when they tell me about an amazing grade they just received.
My role as a tutor is to facilitate learning in a safe, comfortable environment, whilst focusing on areas of weakness and improving exam technique, things often over looked in the classroom. I intend for students to take agency over their learning and therefore ensure that they are able to guide lessons to suit their needs at the time, as usually the student knows what they need to focus on better than anyone else. My assistance and guidance extends beyond the classroom as I am always happy to communicate with my students if they have urgent questions or would like feedback before our next lesson.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me and I am excited to hear from you about your study needs.
Hi there! My name is Daniil, and I’m studying meteorology as part of my Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne. Yep, I enjoy the outdoors and camping, and also quite like cycling. Meteorology is the perfect subject for me, as it combines this with my passion for mathematics, which I tutored extensively throughout my final year of high school. I graduated with an ATAR of 99.90, with raw scores of 50 in Maths Methods, 49 in Specialist Maths, 49 in Chemistry and 45 in Psychology.
In tutoring from the perspective of a Year 12 student, I was able to refine my techniques whilst experiencing their benefits in real time. I can personally relate to the feelings of stress and anxiety that can stem from the competitive environment of VCE, and that everyone learns and studies differently. Explaining concepts to my peers allowed me to break down information to its simplest form, maximising efficiency as I explained the relevant content. I was able to discover the optimum methods to succeed in Year 12, and passed these onto my students to vast improvement, whilst ensuring that I catered to everyone’s needs individually. I hope to not only teach the tricks, skill and tips that allow you to improve your results, but also support you and motivate you, because that is just as important. Year 12 can be a challenging year, but I’m willing to help you every step of the way
