Course Program Design

Years
7-9

Focused on building fundamental skills in Maths and English to ensure there are no gaps in students’ literacy and numeracy abilities, as well as their higher-order critical thinking and analytical skills which become vital in later years.

Years
10

An accelerated program that is focused around teaching Year 11 material a year in advance. The purpose of this is to give students a head start compared to their peers when they reach Year 11 and 12, the years that really count.

Years
11-12

Strictly syllabus-focused programs that teach concepts from first principles in order to provide students with a truly deep understanding of course content, rather than relying on ‘superficial’ rote learning or memorisation techniques. A razor-sharp, syllabus-specific approach also provides an exam-orientated set of strategies to maximise students’ marks in their school assessments & public HSC exams.

Course Design

Talent 100 course programs have been designed to deliver the highest-quality theory and content available to students in NSW. They were created by founder Richard Chua and our Subject Heads, who are all subject matter experts, including authors, PhD academics and people who have topped the state in the HSC. Each yearly course program comprehensively prepares students for the next school year, meaning that Talent 100 students become accustomed to learning the content a term and, in some year levels, a year ahead. This pre-emptive course design combined with a focus on exam preparation, practice and excellence means that Talent 100’s course programs are the best and most advanced HSC preparation course programs available in NSW.

We Teach From First Principles

Unlike many tutoring colleges, we teach from first principles. We cover concepts behind the theory so that students truly understand the content they are learning. There is no rote learning or memorisation of content. This matters not only in HSC exams, but later in life when students move on to university and into the workforce.

Our Promise To You
Talent 100 Provides Students With

How Do Talent 100 Students Top The State Year After Year?

The most effective form of study involves early preparation, practice, and commitment. When students learn ahead, they effectively treat time at school as revision. This provides students with a significant learning advantage.

LaunchPad
Yearly Success Program

The Ultimate LaunchPad for HSC Success

Launch your preparation for HSC success early. Our LaunchPad Yearly Success Program gives students starting secondary school the fundamental skills and tools to start their academic journey in the lead up to the HSC. LaunchPad ensures that students are well prepared for the increased level of difficulty in the content that they’ll cover as they move into Year 8 and above. A successful transition from primary school to high school is essential for future success, and the basis behind our LaunchPad programs is to make this transition as quick and easy as possible.

Foundations
Yearly Success Program

From Launchpad to Foundations

A solid foundation in Mathematics and English is the cornerstone to succeeding in the HSC’s highest-scaling subjects. Without a rock-solid grasp of literacy and numeracy skills, as well as higher-order critical and analytical abilities, students will struggle to keep up in future years when the academic workload becomes much more challenging. Our Foundations program gives students the tools they need to tackle the challenges of the years to come, by ensuring that they have no weaknesses in Maths and English that may compromise their results later on.

Steps To Success
Yearly Success Program

From Foundations to Steps

After a solid foundation of understanding has been established in Years 8 and 9, it’s important to prepare for Year 10. Our ‘Steps to Success’ Yearly Success Program is designed to prepare students for the increased level of academic rigour they’ll encounter in Year 10. Our accelerated program offers students a learning advantage compared to their peers, as they’ll be covering Year 10 content in depth. This will then allow them to begin studying Year 11 material in our Year 10 ‘Headstart’ program. The benefit of being a year ahead of your peers is incalculable; students essentially reach Year 10 and hit the ground running, and this in turn prepares them for a successful transition into Year 11 and 12.

The Importance of Steps Mathematics

Developing strong numeracy skills will not only enable you to take the higher levels of Mathematics (i.e. Mathematics Extension 1 and 2); doing so will also allow you to excel in the other highest-scaling subjects of the HSC (Physics, Chemistry and Economics). If you are good at Mathematics, you will naturally find subjects that have a large amount of mathematical content that much easier, and Talent 100 can help you make the most of your natural abilities.

This is why developing strong mathematical skills early on can help provide students with a strong competitive edge in non-English based courses, which count for 80% of their final HSC results. For this reason, the Talent 100 Steps course is focused on developing and improving mathematical foundations.

The Importance of Steps English

English is the only compulsory subject in the HSC, so it is crucial for you to excel in English in order to secure a top ATAR. Developing strong analytical reading skills and being able to write structured and concise essays are also essential to succeeding in humanities-based subjects, such as Modern and Ancient History, in which written essays count for almost half of the exam. Developing these skills takes time, so if you’re looking to secure top marks in HSC English, it’s important to start early.

Headstart
Yearly Success Program

From Steps to Headstart: You’re On Track for an ATAR Advantage

The level of difficulty and gap from Year 10 to Year 11 can be daunting. Bridge the gap by learning ahead for your final years of high school. With the Headstart Yearly Success Program, students enter Year 11 prepared – this means they can use school time to revise content they’ve already learned in Year 10.

Talent 100 students who took the Headstart course outperformed their non-Headstart peers in our standardised exams by an average of 6.5% in Maths and 5% in Sciences. That’s an overall difference of 2.25 ATAR points. We call this the “Headstart Advantage”.

Develop a competitive advantage in Maths, English, Physics and Chemistry by starting early – one of the best features of the Headstart program is that it allows you to test and trial subjects before you finalise subject selection in Year 11. That way, you are able to see if you are capable of coping with the demands of the highest-scaling subjects, allowing you to make a more informed decision about which subjects to pursue in your final years of high school.

In addition to this, because Year 12 content builds on top of Year 11 content, the Headstart Advantage carries all the way through to your HSC year by extension.

Preliminary
Yearly Success Program

From Headstart to Your Year 11 Preliminary Year

Once you have learned the fundamentals of Year 11 during Year 10 in our Headstart program, the Talent 100 Preliminary course builds on the basics to cover Year 11 topics more comprehensively and in greater depth, in a way that targets the syllabus more closely. You’ll move past learning the broad conceptual basis for each Year 11 topic, to a razor-sharp and syllabus-specific focus on the finer points of each subject.

Students cover every single syllabus dot point to a full marks standard, and learn how to answer the toughest HSC questions with sample solutions and marking guidelines from our top state-ranking Mentors. Talent 100’s superior learning system has been designed to help students not only understand the subject matter inside out, but to translate this knowledge into exam excellence.

Year 11 content builds on top of Year 10 content, so a first-principles understanding of Year 11 theory is crucial for a successful HSC year.

Yearly Success Program

From Preliminary to HSC Success

Building on what has been learned in your Year 11 Preliminary year, this course offers excellent teaching that focuses on a first-principles understanding, rather than memorisation and rote learning. We provide the most comprehensive set of notes in NSW, developed by students who came first in the state. In addition to comprehensively and effectively covering content, we also teach perfect exam technique, with weekly exam-style homework marked with feedback from your Mentor. Students also learn how to spend their time as effectively as possible, as we aim to instil a unique understanding of scaling so that you can study smarter, not harder. Most importantly, we make studying fun.

We’ll guide you through the exam and scaling process. It’s why we provide students with Mentors who have not only recently gone through the same exams, but also topped the state in those exams – this is known as ‘peer to peer’ based learning. Our students find that they can relate to someone who has just achieved what they seek to achieve in an open, safe and inspirational environment that is conducive to learning.
