Launching 2021 Student Survival Packs

Student Survival Packs

*** New editions in 2021 ***

Written for students, these digital resources focus on developing Key Skills and Key Knowledge through analysis of relevant issues. They also contain tips for maximising SAC and exam scores.

Created by experienced teachers and assessors, the Student Survival Packs (for Units 3&4 Global Politics, and Units 3&4 Australian Politics) contain tools and materials you can turn to when Year 12 piles on the pressure. Closely aligned to the 2018-2023 study design, the packs will include:

  • Learning Tasks to ensure you gain a deep understanding of all key terms, as well as the ability to apply them to the key knowledge.
  • Clear explanations of the key content for all Areas of Study written in simple language.
  • The latest case studies and examples to support key knowledge.
  • Practice questions with some model answers and/or tips on how to answer them.
  • Hundreds of live links to suggested resources.
  • Definitions and explanations of important terms and concepts.

The Student Survival Packs will be released at key stages throughout the year to ensure that the most up-to-date political content is included. There are four issues, each corresponding to an Area of Study. Once bought, issues will be automatically uploaded to your account as they become available.

In 2021, the Student Survival Packs are available through Box of Books using this link. Detailed instructions for setting up your online resource are here. Read more about the new editions.

RRP: $80 inc GST for all four issues.
