The cheat sheet should not be looked at as a tool to help you once in the exam, it should be viewed as a tool to help you study. Spending 2 hours revising and condensing notes into a cheat sheet will make you realise how much you have forgotten and will rejog your memory on the  little things. It is for this reason I recommend remaking your cheat sheet before each SAC and before the exams.

- It must be small enough to navigate easily - you must know where every piece of information is on it.  The last thing you want to be doing is spending a few minutes flicking through a huge binder. Mine was a single double-sided A4 page, with only 1 module required for 2020 all content could fit onto it easily.

What should be included:
- All rules/formulas (even the ones on the formula sheet provided in the exam)
- All graph types, annotated with important features and common mistakes (like forgetting the key in stem plots)
- Content that you didn't COMPLETELY know 100% before the start of the year. If it was so basic that you remember it from before the start of the year, don't waste the time/space for it be on the cheat sheet. If you learned it during the year or are even a little bit unsure, put it on.
- Tricky questions (For example, the answer to one practice question did not allow seasonality because the period between seasons was not consistent, and hence there was no seasonality)
- Tips and tricks (eg. Ensure working for 2 mark questions, Check decimal points/sig figs, etc) It is easy to forget the little general things in a test, this is to ensure you don't lose stupid marks.
