My top 5 study tips

1Help each other out. The 60,000 other people receiving their ATARs will massively outnumber your friends. They're the people you're truly competing against. Your friends are a valuable source of help because you can easily ask them questions, and since they know you best they can give you honest feedback.

2Opt to wake up earlier to study in the morning rather than pulling an all-nighter. There are no exams at midnight - no use conditioning yourself to work well at that time.

3Sleep early before exams, before 11PM as a rule of thumb. You won't be able to perform as well in a sleep-deprived state. If you've been staying up for several nights leading up to exams, try to readjust your sleeping schedule a few days in advance.

4Never give up. If you don't do as well as you wanted to for an assessment, remember that you still have the opportunity to come back stronger next time. You can do it.

5Try to indulge in a wide variety of activities, including sport or extra-curricular volunteering activities. An interviewer will most likely look beyond your ATAR score.

Great futures begin with great HSC results
