Our story

Exam Success was founded by Vi, a former University of Melbourne scholarship recipient and selective school student. Vi is the author of numerous test preparation books and to see if her books are available at your nearest library, please check here.

Vi has been quoted in various online and offline magazines, including:

  • Herald Sun
  • Domain Review
  • Hume Leader
  • The Sydney Morning Herald

As a past selective school student and a former 5-year scholarship holder, Vi has personally experienced the painful process of selective test prep.

"When do I start my exam preparation?"

"How will the test look like?"

"What should I focus on?"

Just like thousands of students and their parents preparing for a competitive exam, she was asking herself these questions too.

Vi had to learn the hard way about what works for competitive exam prep and what doesn't.

Having combined her personal journey with years of in-person tutoring, Vi decided to take all the guesswork out of competitive test prep and created Exam Success – an online one-stop-shop for the exam preparation that gets results. This time, the easy way.

"Vi is one of the few people in the selective school coaching industry who has been to a selective school, meaning she has first hand experience on what to expect during the exam." ~ Rajas S.
