QCE Earth and Environmental Science

Subscribing to ReviseOnline QCE Earth and Environmental Science course (Units 1&2 and Units 3&4) gives you access to an extensive range of revision material, which can deliver a significant boost to your ATAR score. In Unit 1, students examine the evidence underpinning theories of the development of the Earth systems, their interactions and their components. In Unit 2, students investigate how Earth processes involve interactions of Earth systems and are interrelated through transfers and transformations of energy. In Unit 3, students examine renewable and non-renewable resources, the implications of extracting, using and consuming these resources, and associated management approaches. In Unit 4, students consider how Earth processes and human activity can contribute to Earth hazards, and the ways in which these hazards can be predicted, managed and mitigated to reduce their impact on earth environments.

Using only QCE Curriculum specific assessment material, students use ReviseOnline to develop skills to more effectively articulate responses and manage time pressure, leading to less stress and higher scores.
