Know I'm a 2015er, but you might be interest in this as a fellow IPT student. I am doing a bit of a combo. I made a database in IPT for my minor project to track all my tasks and then whenever I work I log the time. Then I can see days where my average work time is lower and I also am tracking my motivation and productivity so I can see at what time of day I work best. The database also makes things like pie charts so I can see which subjects I should be spending more time on and whether I am avoiding any (cough cough English).
Yep this is literally one of my main study tips. I did this very consistently in the last term of school and was able to raise my results by 5+ marks in most of my subjects. Seriously, do it.Do pastpapers/questions and hand them into teachers to mark..
Can confirm. Don't stuff ENGLISH up. You will die.Don't do any homework aside maths (unless its useful). Pretty much if its worth nothing or will contribute little to your exam preparation, screw it.
Time management is crucial. Know when your assessments are and plan everything backwards.
Keep working regardless of crap or good results especially
Take a break after assessments too
Don't fail english otherwise it'll rek your ATAR
