Upcoming Events: Revision Workshops and Mock Exams

T2 is coming to an end and that means it’s time for Revision Workshops and Mock Exams again! They were a huge success last term and with hopes to continue making your uni life a bit more bearable, we have partnered with UNSW School of Accounting to host workshops where difficult concepts will be revisited and then further explained through demonstrated problems. It’s a great opportunity to:

  • Solidify understanding and revisit difficult concepts
  • Discover what you need to study the most
  • Learn how concepts are applied to exam-style questions

There will be back-to-back workshops and practice exams for several accounting subjects so read ahead for the details!
