I don't know what to do!
« on: January 23, 2019, 01:25:53 pm »

Guys, I need help! School starts next week Thursday for me and I barely did anything to prepare for my year 12.
Any suggestions on what I should do to stay ahead or improve before my final year begins, or any advice?
I know what I'm going to do when it starts, I just don't know what to do now in the final week of my holidays!
Thanks in advance!

Holiday homework?

If you've done that - maybe it would be worth getting ahead even by a week or so.. for maths, if you know the exercises maybe get ahead a bit and have questions ready for your teacher.

- Get into a routine. Id recommend fixing your sleep cycle in order to ensure you will be ready for when school starts. If you will be sleeping from 11-7 in the term, start doing that now.

- Id also recommend getting organised. This includes things like getting a calendar or using an online one, planning out how much time you aim to study daily, how you are going to stay on top of all your work, where you will be studying, your stationary, your goals and aims.

- Start on the work for the year. Thats it. Really. Just start doing it now so you can hit the ground running when year 12 starts.

So basically, Be like school starts today?
Hmm, makes sense. Then by the time school starts, I can get into a routine (and my handwriting will get better by then as well :P) Thanks guys!

I mean, don't start wearing your school uniform at home or anything. But yes, study, sleep and eat like school had started. We are creatures of habit :)

probably don't need to be doing 6+ hours a day of work like you would be doing at school but just starting off small over the next week with maybe doing (in hours) 1, 2, 0, 2, 3, 3, etc could be good so there is no shock factor when you get back.
