NEW FOR 2019

Jacaranda VCE Psychology

For the VCE Study Design

The trusted market leader updated to reflect the Study Design changes, along with content and layout updates to make it even more accessible for every student – helping them achieve exam success.



What problems are we helping to solve?

We listened, we heard teachers wanted:

A resource to reflect the June 2017 Study Design update, which deleted some content. In an already crowded curriculum you need to be able to clearly identify what is examinable.

To be able to cater for the full range of students in the classroom – the large middle band, those that need more assistance and those that thirst for more.
