just the 1 hour of solid study in the morning (does not include reading english texts)

you should be set if you maintain that every day

Make a list of what you've actually learnt as well, just so you know your time isn't going to waste
vce: english, methods, spesh, chemistry, physics, geography.
tutoring in any vce maths.

i'd suggest more than 1 hour of study in the morning. at my school we were told to average 3 per day, 10-12 over the weekend (including homework). I never achieved this, but would recommend it if sustainable - otherwise 2, or whatever is 'enough' for you to stay on top of things (which for me was substantially less). make sure you remain balanced etc as stated above, but don't abuse this - make sure you do enough work. seek advice from teachers and students, work together, and basically don't lose motivation or fall behind.
good luck!

oh wow lol that was for during the year. an hour a day from now might be a good idea, until you've covered all the courses... and make sure you're well rested for the year to come!

Also, try to go through and finish the majority of your subjects. Will allow you to relax a little during the year.
