My top 5 study tips

1Learn the syllabus, it'll tell you everything you need to know about what markers are looking for and what could be examined.

2Study smart by establishing a routine with set times where you have no distractions around you like phones, it's better to be concentrated for a short period of time than to be working all day ineffectively.

3Plan ahead for exams and assessments by breaking material down into manageable study sessions leading up to the date rather than cramming everything the night before which will always fail to cover everything you need to know and only leave you stressed and tired.

4Don't sacrifice your health for your studies as if they're mutually exclusive, by eating well, staying hydrated, exercising frequently and sleeping enough your mind will be sharper and everything will be easier.

5Stay motivated or try to find it, you may not enjoy every moment of your studies but think about the kind of things you want to achieve in the future and how your hard work now will pay off and lead to their accomplishment or at least open up a wider range of possibilities that would otherwise be hard to reach.

Great futures begin with great HSC results
