G'day turtle67

Which Anki app is that? I tried searching it up and it came up with 15 different apps.
Yeah I just use the one that jojosiwa123 linked above on my computer. I'm pretty sure you can just go onto the webpage on your phone if you'd like to use it on your phone but the app on the phone is $25 but if you use it often enough I'd say it is probably worth it, especially if you have long commutes to school or anything like that.

I started using it about 3-4 weeks before prelims I think, mostly for economics and business studies, a bit of other subjects like chemistry and English (techniques and stuff) and I found it worked really really well for me. Although it's important that you do your assigned cards every day. If you start making cards when Year 12 starts, you'll well and truly have everything memorised by the end of year 12, then you won't need to go over your notes or whatever as much before the HSC because you'll have already memorised them and can start doing practice questions earlier.

This. Space repetition and active recall is scientifically proven to be the best way to study. Use Anki. Though I'm not sure if its effective to implement when it's so close to the HSC.
Hi, I feel like I relate to what the person who posted this was saying, however I am just starting year 12, do you have any advice on how I can best use the platform or any general tips? :)

Hey it's around 1 to 3 weeks from our HSC exams but for the current two to three days I felt like whenever I tried to remember the contents (Like memorise a legislation by repeating it for ten minutes 'try') I just forget about it like two days after. It used to work for me but somehow my brain doesn't work anymore. Same for my Modern History and it only comes back into my mind when I really look at my notes. Has anyone experienced this before and how did you dealt with it?
There's great responses already but another thing I think could be helpful with things like modern history is just writing the main topic headings that are going to be testing and either making a mindmap or just info-dumping everything you can without looking at your notes, you can look at them before and then look at them after if you like. The things that you forget will generally then be more prominent in your mind for next time. eventually you will remember it all :)

And! Always remember, just for yourself before the exam, you know more than you realise, the brain is a very powerful tool. If you think you're not going to remember the stuff it might be coming from ofc the underlying stress. Stay cool and just hold onto your brain. :)

When you say platform, I'm going to assume you mean Anki. I was really lazy so I exported notes from this website and made cards out of them. I then reviewed the cards when I was outside, but if I'm at home, I just spammed past papers. Since you're just starting year 12, I'd recommend doing HSC questions by topic cause you haven't learnt everything yet.

Yes yes I did mean anki. Do you know how to find HSC questions by topic? like is there some magic book that does that?

Do you reckon Anki has served you well for yr 12?

I prefer quizlet :D
Oh really? Howcome? I used quizlet for a bit but I just found that with anki like it'll assign you ones to do each day to be most efficiency, instead of quizlet where you can just do as much as you want to sort of. But quizlet definitely looks nicer ahah.

What subjects did you use it for?

Also, how's the hsc going so far for you?

I only used it once for one of my legal exams for crime, I thought it was effective
