That's one of the biggest benefits of starting Unit 3&4 subjects early - the chance to improve! Anything in particular you learnt from the experience? :)

Yeah tbh I learnt that too much stress is detrimental (my fm score is proof), not to worry about predicted scores and not to waste time writing heaps of notes  :)

I'm sure you'll improve! :)

Best of luck for the year ahead, friend! :)
Just saw this! Thank you

Don't you just love coming home to AN?  ;) I certainly do.

Just a quick question for everyone, do you all study every single day? Or do you take a full and complete break from all study-related tasks for a day, which is what I'm trying to do? I.e. using Sunday as my rest day.

Can't believe there's only ~6 months till it's all over! A mix of stress and apathy is how I would describe my thoughts the moment.

What I would say to fellow Year 12s is that it's not important, but ESSENTIAL to keep up a healthy lifestyle. Health is the one of the greatest resources of all.

Not a current year-12 but you definitely don't have to study every day. One of my friends who also got 98 always took a minimum of one day off from studying a week. Not saying that this is the answer for everyone, but it's certainly effective for some :)

I tend to procrastinate a lot. However, something that has significantly improve my study habits is by actually studying less often but for more time. This tends to keep my productivity when I study relatively high due to me being able to refresh myself often. Personally, I do have atleast 1 spare everyday in which I try to do study in, however, in terms of 'home'work I tend to not study on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays. I feel like this gives me a lot more time for my hobbies, and also keeps my motivation levels high. However, when exam period approaches I will definitely be studying everyday (with breaks).

I could never not study for a whole day. I don't think you can really afford to do so in year 12 - However, we're all different so I guess it's just up to how you work. I personally thrive off of knowing that I am ahead of the class in terms of content, since I know that I can get more questions done and be familiar with the content for a greater period of time than everyone else. I study in 1-1.5 hours blocks and then just take a 5-15 minute break and get back into it again. Although I must admit, my efficiency does tend to decline over the duration of the day due to mental fatigue.

The one thing that I do that isn't study but that really keeps my mental and physical wellbeing high is that I try to exercise at night at around 9 or 10 o'clock for 45 minutes to an hour, listening to music and just going over my day in my head to see what I can improve for the next day and thinking about what I did well. This kinda resets my body and gets me fresh for the next day.

Also, when you know that you've used all the time you had in the day productively, it motivates you even more to maintain the work ethic - making it harder to procrastinate and be lazy

Anyone else getting bombarded by a shit ton of SACs? :'(

For any unfortunate souls out there doing methods, how do you study for it? Like, just smash out a ton of practice questions and trial exams?? I find that I can understand things but after moving onto another topic all previous knowledge leaves my brain.

not in year 12 currently but yes for methods you want to be doing a lot of trial exams  (not studying theory too much). However, if you do find yourself getting certain types of questions wrong it might be valuable to review the theory.

God yes the amount of SACs I have this term is insane, and I've heard it gets worse in term 3!!! I'm pretty sure I have 1-2 Sacs a week from the end of next week till the end of the term.

Hey! Don't call me unfortunate!  :'( Jk I feel your pain.

Speaking of, are there ways to make studying less of a pain? Like, ways to make it tolerable and even, dare I say, F-U-N?

I think the key here would be doing subjects that you're genuinely interested in. I was lucky to pick out two subjects that I genuinely enjoy this year, so I don't struggle too much to do work for them. For subjects that I don't enjoy though, if there's a way to make it 'fun' I think it'd be revolutionary to the world.
