Course Goals

Improve Academic Performance

Processes in biology are very complex! They often have many steps that are related to other topics. By the end of our HSC Biology course, you will comprehend the models that demonstrate these processes and know how these processes apply to various fields in biology such as medicine, industry and agriculture.

Build Confidence and Resilience

Knowing what happens in biology is one thing, but trying to express this is a whole different challenge. In Year 12, scientific expression is more important when you are dealing with controversial topics. By the end of our Biology course, you will become more confident with expressing yourself scientifically to excel in both your exams and your life.

Appreciate the Applications of Biology

The study and application of biology has been the cornerstone of societal development since the dawn of mankind. By the end of this course, you will understand the significance that biology plays in the processes that happen around us and the rationale for decision-making by doctors, geneticists, farmers, conservationalists, ecologists and more.

I have tried other tutoring centers and YGA has been the only one that really understands me on a personal level. The tutors went above and beyond and took time off their own schedule outside of class to chat with me when I was worried about my marks and this really helped with my stress.

I always look forward to coming here after a long day of school. I always feel welcomed and never feel judged for asking any questions or help with my assignments or assessments. Being able to have comfortable friendly chats and still learn with my peers and tutors is a great feeling so i recommend for everyone to try them out!

The communal environment has enhanced the way in which learning takes place and made it more enjoyable to learn from there. I highly recommend this place for everyone who’s not only looking to excel in their studies, but also be part of a community that makes learning a truly positive and fulfilling experience.
