My top 5 study tips

1Ensure that you have a solid understanding of ALL the syllabus dot-points and do not purely rely on what you learn at school as they sometimes gloss over or completely skip some content.

2Make sure you ask questions about concepts you don’t completely understand. It doesn’t matter how many times you need to ask, but keep asking until you gain an adequate answer.

3Past papers are an effective way to consolidate your understanding of all the topics and it allows you to encounter the different types of questions you will receive in an exam. It is also useful to do these papers within time limits as it allows you to experience and get used to the time pressure within exams.

4Maintain a balanced lifestyle outside of academics by exercising, eating and pursuing your hobbies. This is essential as you will not be able to study well while under stress and pressure.

5Use a variety of resources while studying to gain a complete understanding of ideas and concepts e.g. textbooks, internet and Talent 100 Tutorials
