My top 5 study tips

1Focus on the evidence before themes- Build your understanding of the text from what you can actually argue

2Set clear but manageable due dates for tasks - Base your study plans with breaks and mental health in mind

3Model your work off exemplars - Read widely in both essays and fiction to see what success looks like and how it can be emulated

4Annotation is your tool for success - Build an analytical vocabulary of techniques and themes to this end

5Actively try to love your texts - Not every text will be your favourite, but finding something you connect with or can appreciate will make analysis and writing easier

Great futures begin with great HSC results
