WHY wait to go to uni? These students used a university program to help prepare for their Year 12 exams.

As part of the University of Wollongong (UOW) Year 12 University Preparation Program (UPP), students from six nearby schools attended the Southern Highlands campus to prepare for their upcoming exams.

Students from Moss Vale High, Bowral High, Chevalier College, Southern Highlands Christian School, Wollondilly Anglican College and Trinity Catholic College in Goulburn took part in the program.

Run by UOW’s In2Uni Program, students undertook a 20-week course of specialist study sessions tailored to their HSC subjects.

UOW Southern Highlands campus manager Stephen Lowe said study sessions were run by experienced mentors who excelled in the selected HSC subject areas.

“This ensures students received the best tips and advice to help them achieve their best in the HSC,” he said.

The UPP students said that they appreciated that mentors had recently completed the HSC and understood what they are going through in the lead up to exams.

A total of 21 students completed the UPP with a celebration at the UOW Southern Highlands campus.
