Tom’s story

Tom (24), graduated from the University of Otago in 2012 with a double Bachelor’s degree in Law and Accounting. He is now studying postgraduate medicine at Notre Dame university in Sydney.

Despite many years of punishing study, he still finds the motivation to put in the hard yards, and knows that the home stretch of his third degree is nearly in sight.

Listen to Tom’s story below.

Tom said that the money from his monthly commissions went towards his “outrageous Sydney rint” (rent) and that it was a real bonus.

“I realised that this (Nexus Notes) is just looking to share notes and give people the option to acquire something that they otherwise wouldn’t”

He uploaded notes in the second semester of 2014 and saw sales increase as it got closer to exams. You can view one of Tom’s sets of notes here.

According to Tom, one of the most appealing aspects of Nexus Notes is how it provides all students an opportunity to get access to great quality notes, many of whom might not have had the right networks to source notes themselves, which makes it a more balance playing field.

We asked Tom if he thought a well-written set of notes was more valuable than a set of notes, and his answer was an emphatic yes;

“I avoided buying textbooks on the basis that I didn’t need to know 600 pages of company law to know what was relevant for my course”
