My top 5 study tips

1Write notes using other reliable notes and textbooks. This is less passive than just reading a textbook and so helps solidify your knowledge.

2Do practice papers, a combination of open and closed book. When you start doing papers before an exam block, spend half of your remaining days doing open book past papers and the latter half doing closed book, timed, practice papers.

3Teach your peers on as a form of studying. This helps consolidates your own knowledge.

4Don't do any passive study (like watching youtube or checking facebook whilst reading notes). When you set aside time to study invest your full attention in that and then give yourself breaks.

5Don't cram. Work consistently in the weeks and days leading up to an exam and on the night before give yourself some downtime and ample rest.

Great futures begin with great HSC results
