Preparing for the HSC exams certainly can be daunting, and sometimes it would be great to have an expert on hand to answer those last-minute tricky questions.
In this session, you can do just that!
Our expert panellists will be able to answer any last-minute questions you have before your exam, whether they be about content, source analysis techniques, or the exam itself.
The panel is made up of three Power and Authority experts:
- Nicole Mansfield, a Senior Marker of HSC Modern History
- Jonathon Dallimore, of the History Teachers Association
- Dr Simon Holloway, an educator at the Sydney Jewish Museum
