PARC Sydney APE Tutorials

The PARC Sydney Saturday APE Tutorials are a series of five full morning tutorials run fortnightly over ten weeks leading up to the APE-Part 2 - National Examination Paper (NEP).

A further full morning tutorial session is held following the NEP to prepare candidates for the APE Part 3 - Examination by Interview.

Each tutorial group has a maximum of 30 participants to ensure that both the tutorial format and low student to tutor ratio are maintained.

Participants are issued with required reading prior to the tutorials and sample questions to complete afterwards.  

Every year tutorial participants have achieved an average pass rate in all three parts of the Architectural Practice Examination of over 90%.

The PARC APE Tutorials are currently available in Sydney and Melbourne.  If you are located elsewhere in Australia or would rather work from home you may be interested in our APE Online Tutorials.
