Sunny or Rainy We will teach you everything we did to get a 50 in English in 2020. Rion Ahl goes through the skills that schools don't teach to get you to the very top.

50Coach is here to coach you in the skills it takes to beat the pack. Through our 30-video LIVE masterclass sessions across the year. We’re going to place you in a group of like-minded ambitious students hoping to score big. Rion, your coach, will take you through what it takes to appear a master of VCE English, even if you’re not a natural talent.

Rion Ahl, 50 in English

Hi, I’m Rion. I graduated from Year 12 in 2020. Just like you, I stood at the entrance to Year 12, simultaneously worried, apprehensive and excited. I always had the day – December 12th – in the back of my mind as a day I would look at my results and be proud with how I did.

I ended up achieving a 99.95 with a raw 50 in English. I finished the year with acceptance into the Biology Olympiad Summer School and as a State Champion in The Australian History Competition.

And it wasn’t easy. But having gone through the path myself, I know exactly what hurdles and pitfalls come during the final year of school. I realised that studying English wasn’t about learning the books as much as learning the skills – how to effectively memorise quotes, plan, write to time and in the end beat the examiner.

Over Year 12 I’ve accrued secrets – the tools that helped me get a 50. And as part of 50Coach, I want to share these secrets with you. I want to take you past what I was taught in school in a manner that emulates the exact way I achieved my high scores so that I can get a similar result for you. I can show you these secrets.

30 Lectures of Pure Gold

Our topics are carefully curated to maximise your buildup of skill.

Lecture 1: The Magic Formula to Quotes

Active recall – the most efficient method of memorisation. My unique way of using Quizlet to memorise 50+ quotes in a single night.

How many quotes? The types of quotes? There’s a pattern that I’ll show you that allows you to memorise the peak number of quotes to ensure that you have enough to write any essay and not to many as to waste your time.

The strategies beyond active recall software – both physical and digital – to ensure that on exam day you have a mind filled with every required essay evidence

Lecture 2: The creative SAC

Lots of students are frustrated by the creative SAC – after all, when will they have to write stories in the real world? But there’s a reason – the creative tests your ability and understanding that can contribute towards you gaining a greater understanding and consequent excellence in this SAC.

The key trick to acing the creative – emulating as closely as possible the style of the original authors. I’ll show you how to do it without plagiarism of the original piece.

You’ll learn very quickly within the SAC landscape that the teacher’s word is god. As such, I’ll go through example rubrics from schools around Victoria to show an idea of what your teachers might be looking for with the creative task.

And 28 other lectures to guide you through the year…
