CPAP Programs 2023

During 2023, Exam Preparation programs will be held in October via Webinar. Each lecture program will include advice on areas to focus, clarification of common errors made by past students, tips on how to allocate precious time, strategies to assist students to interpret questions and structure responses, an analysis of the most difficult questions and terms from past exams and an analysis of possible questions in light of recent developments.  Each program will conclude with an optional 30 minute Q&A session.

Students attending one or more student programs put themselves into a position where they can respond more effectively to examination questions and enhance their performance.

CPAP presenters have years of experience as teachers and examination assessors. They have developed expertise in preparing students for examinations and have an excellent understanding of what is required to prepare responses that are efficient and effective – responses that make it easier for the examination assessors to award full marks.

Please note that CPAP 2023 programs will be live events only (i.e. no recordings are made).

Testimonials (General)

The CPAP eco exam prep lectures are the BEST lectures I have ever been to. The notes are fantastic and the quality of the presentation is of a very high standard. I learned many tricks and other useful points for the final exam which I otherwise would not have known. I've never met someone who explains concepts so clearly and effectively.

Thankyou for a very detailed and specific overview of the course, with very helpful exam techniques as well as an in depth discussion of the inter relation of all the concepts. As well as the inclusion of websites! The length of the session was very good, although it would be beneficial to be longer!

Steven Batinovic, Caroline Chisholm Catholic College.

‘The lecture was definitely good value for the small price that was paid. The information and tips provided within the lecture have very much heightened my confidence and knowledge about the exam’.

Joshua Munro, Mowbray College

‘The amount paid for your lecture was quite miniscule considering how beneficial it was. I feel like my exam result will reap the rewards when I remember the important things you taught. I was particularly impressed and learnt most when you went through past exam questions and showed 'how' to answer them. This showed me the things that assessors were looking for and what should be included in an answer. Your jokes and good sense of humour lightened the mood and created a great environment for me personally to learn in. But definitely the most important and beneficial part was when you spoke about the policy mix questions. You explained it clearly and precisely but with enough depth to display a 'full mark' response.’
