In this resource megaguide, we’ve listed a whole heap of resources you might find useful in your QCE English studies. 💯

If you’re keen to subscribe to our regular QCE newsletter and stay on top of all of our QCE resources, your best bet is to make an ATAR Notes account:





A great place to start for QCE study is our range of free notes! Generously uploaded by those who have come before you, these notes are by students, for students.

For English 3&4 notes specifically, go here. Note that you will need to be logged in to your ATAR Notes account to download the notes – otherwise you’ll just be met with a blank screen!

When the time comes, it would be amazing if you could upload your own notes, too – even through the year!



Also uploaded to our free notes section are all of our QCE English 3&4 lecture slides from previous free lectures. These lectures are specifically designed to not only provide an overview of the course material, but also give tips and tricks from a recent graduate high-achiever.

To download the English lecture slides, go here (and remember, you need to be logged in!). As a special treat, here’s a quick overview video of some of the key concepts in the English syllabus:



If you’re keen on study videos, you’re in luck! We also have a series of excellent revision videos on concepts you can brush up on. Here’s the very first video in the series:

But you can find the full series – plus videos for lots of other QCE subjects – on our free videos page. If you like, you can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to make sure you’re the first to know about new videos – we’re uploading new content all the time!

We even have a specific section for essay marking and feedback! Free help from current and past students – we really recommend using this as much as you can!
