Common Module - Texts and Human Experiences

The Common Module, Texts and Human Experiences, is tested in Paper 1 of the HSC. It is comprised of two main sections - the short-answer section, and the essay section.

Concept Tuition offers tuition programs for the following Common Module texts:

  • Merchant of Venice, William Shakespeare
  • Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell
  • The Crucible, Arthur Miller

A range of texts, both prescribed and related, are deconstructed to draw inspiration. A practical, hands-on approach is taken to ensure that students are afforded the ability to develop their own writing styles to succeed in this portion of the HSC paper.
