My top 5 study tips

1Write your own notes. The process of writing your own notes and explaining concepts in your own words helps you to easily identify gaps in your knowledge as well as understand concepts, as opposed to just remembering them.

2Know your key terms (e.g. Explain, Discuss). You can't answer the question properly if you don't know them!

3Practise your 6-8 mark questions. You will lose the majority of your marks in a test in these types of questions. Read exemplar responses and marking criteria to develop your own foolproof structure for your extended responses.

4Ask questions. Google is your friend - learn to Google properly and you can master anything you wish.

5Maintain a balance. Pursue some hobbies, play sport, meet up with friends. Your physical and mental health is number one.

Great futures begin with great HSC results
