exams are over

Hey AN


I recently finished my exams and I am super bored. I have nothing to do and I am planning to go to Uni next year. Does anyone have any suggestions for me to get some productive work done (perhaps some prep before uni)?

Kindly appreciated

Can you prelearn content for what you think you'll struggle with most? Pick up some hobbies you might've forgotten about? Try and get a(nother) job? Increase your skills in some area, such as an instrument, art, or something? If all else fails, read books that may be relevant to your career (or not relevant at all)?

Congrats on finishing your exams!

J41 recently posted this which might be helpful. (I know itís for QCE, but same principles apply for VCE graduates.)

Coolmate has also created a thread on post-exam activities, which might also give you some ideas.

Iím also about to re-post and update an old questionnaire I had about post-exam activities from a few years ago. Iíll add a link here when thatís been posted.

Edit (30/11/2020): Posted the updated questionnaire here last night.

In the meantime, if you havenít already, go and apply for a Tax File Number. Youíll need it if youíre an Australian (and maybe NZ) citizen or PR wanting to go study higher education e.g. uni (for higher education loans) or work, and the application usually takes a while this time of year, so getting in early will mean you have it just in time for uni offers or Christmas casual work. You can also apply for Centrelink if eligible.

In non-boring paperwork, you could easily get some much-needed R & R, clean your room, enjoy your newfound freedom, catch up on your favourite hobbies and much much more! :)

Edit: Just realised you said productive things to do. Same applies, really. Rest is important especially after all that stress, but the paperwork and ďadultingĒ (e.g. getting a job, getting your driverís license, getting your exercise back up and running, organising your life now) will prove useful and productive in this time too.

Thank you so much everyone!

I'm definitely going to stick around on AN and help the upcoming cohorts because this site helped me immensely throughout my VCE.


I'm going to get the following done this week:

- Do some driving lessons and hopefully get my P's in a month or two!
- Help a friend's tutoring business
- Begin a python course
-  Apply for a TFN


As weird as this may sound, I miss doing math haha! So I'm definitely going to be active on the question threads for mathematics mainly


Thanks everyone
