NEW FOR 2019
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.
To prepare students to do their best in the exam.
How are we addressing these needs?
A trusted market-leading series
The Jacaranda Psychology series is used in more than 70% of Victorian schools.
Perfectly aligned to the Study Design
Updated to reflect the June 2017 VCE Psychology Study Design update.
Accessible for every student
A new layout with additional questions and content, designed to ensure every student can experience success.
