At GradReady, we pride ourselves in constantly improving and innovating.

Brand New Website - 3.0

The current site is the third completely new GradReady site. By “new”, we are not referring to new versions, we are not referring to modifications, we are not even referring to pulling apart the old site and reassembling it. We mean that we had rebuilt it completely from scratch - so that we can use the latest software frameworks as foundation, enabling us to develop features that would be impossible in the older versions.

If you have ever wondered why no other providers offer what we do, it is because the no one else had reinvested back into technology the way we have.

GradReady 3.0 was released in April 2016. The new software framework allows the site to perform complex functions at lightning speed and serve as foundation for even more advanced technologies that we will release to GAMSAT ® , UMAT ® , VCE ® and HSC ® students throughout the year.

Higher Emphasis on Humanities

Considering that Humanities is usually the weakest area of the typical candidate and it requires the most work to improve, we have substantially increased the amount of resources devoted to Humanities. We have increased the Live Humanities classes from 6 hours to 9 hours, Humanities videos from 2 hours to 5 hours, and doubled the amount of book notes devoted to essay writing and example essays aimed at helping to you understand what differentiates essays of differing standards.

Flexibility in Making Upgrades

Revamp of Live Course Content

In the past, live courses focused on the core humanities and science concepts. However, we found that the students’ favourite part of the class was when the tutor was explaining through demonstrating. Therefore, we made working through examples the focus of the live classes - let the examples be MCQs or articles. The core knowledge that we used to teach in class was not discarded of course; we simply moved it online, so that you can move at your own pace and ask plenty of questions in class.
