    Note taking: Laptop or Handwritten

    I think digital for every subject except Maths and Physics. Those NEED to be handwritten IMO.

    Best scaling subjects?

    Depends how important money is to you and whether your family will help with post school expenses. But a 12-15 hour week wouldn't hurt your study too much although it may cause you stress which could have an indirect effect. Also as a general rule of thumb I believe everybody should have at...

    Best scaling subjects?

    Usually the best scaling subjects from what I know are Maths (Advanced-Ext 2) and Physics/Chem. You might want to consider doing Bio if you are interested in studying Medicine.

    Best scaling subjects?

    Not if he doesn't actually enjoy those subjects and is just doing them for scaling. It's much harder to study something your not actually interested in and don't have fun learning. That's like doing 4U maths because it scales well but you can't stand maths, obviously your marks are going to be...

    Study Timetable and Organisation Help

    Yeah it helps me clear up brain fog after intensive studying so i can kind of retain more information, so many benefits to it IMO. Even Eddie Woo said that going for a run/walk before an exam can help you heaps in Math Exams because it warms your brain up and you don't make silly sign errors or...

    Study Timetable and Organisation Help

    I want to get a band 6 in pretty much everything. I'm aiming for a 95+ ATAR so I can study law/commerce and get into my desired course.

    Study Timetable and Organisation Help

    I'd say studying would constitute as homework, practice papers,anki and revision for me. I don't really know what my weak subjects are, to be honest I've never done badly on a test. I could probably use some extra math practice for 3U math though.

    Study Timetable and Organisation Help

    How much should I be studying each week day and on weekends ? I'm trying to fit in 1 hour of exercise and 8 hours of sleep into each day. and I'm thinking of using the pomodoro study technique for all my tasks I need done. As for organisation I'm going to try get folders/binders for each...

    I would but I missed out on a term or two this year so I need to catch up a fair bit.

    What areas of maths should i be focusing on during holidays ?

    In that case, do you have a link to a website with the updated syllabus sheet.

    What areas of maths should i be focusing on during holidays ?

    Hmm it says in the syllabus for Ext 1 that circle geometry is one of the topics. Is the syllabus sheet incorrect in that case?

    What areas of maths should i be focusing on during holidays ?

    Quadratics are what I'm most comfortable with, so that's good news. We are doing circle geometry in 5.3 Year 10 at the moment, will that be useful for Ext 1 ?

    What areas of maths should i be focusing on during holidays ?

    Is there any specific maths that i should focus on improving/revising before next year, i'm doing advanced math and possibly Ext 1 (next year being year 11). I missed out on a fair bit of geometry but by looking at the syllabus i don't think stuff like congruence and similarity would really...
