if your relationship can survive the hsc, youve passed the first test. if it survives the pressure of you two headed for different directions down your roads of educational choice, such as goign to different uni's, ur set for life

Not a good idea - i saw one girl go to pieces and screw her entire english exam last year cos the bf dumped her a week pre the hsc. I believe as a result he started to feel guilty and that prob impacted his study as well!! - if u can prevent it then do so. It is best to work out an agreement to just not see each other for a while - how long is woah 5 weeks!

If you break up before HSC, it's possible that one or both of you will be so miserable you won't be able to study or concentrate in exams.

If you feel you need to break up for the HSC period... that's just stupid. Sure you won't see each other as much, but why go through all the breakup crap?

its a pretty stupid excuse for breaking up with someone, one of my friends boyfriends used "i think we should break up cos my mum said i have to study more"

my break up happened last tuesday and it sucks but it just kinda happened (after a year and a half it just kinda died in the arse) but i think it will be ok. i dont have 2 see him for 3 weeks so i can concentrate. this wasnt to do with the hsc or anything... it just happened now, not sure if its relevant to the thread but hey

Why break up... it's only the HSC, it's not that important and you'll realise this in about March/April next year.

i think if you can put a break up off until after the hsc, that's the way to go
if its a matter of not being able to study because of them, then a break's the way to go
if the relationship's really bad and you dont think it will bother you that much, then do it whenever you feel you're ready...

pfft.. i did it.. not good.. its bad for u in fact.. i see lots of ppl do it..

the break up will cause a loss of support u had prior.. understand tat they (person studying) needs time for themselves.. its a tough comprimise
but i think staying in a stable relationship is much better..

stress will be ure key concern..
depression is the other..
lost of close friends..

HSC is a big thing for most 16-18 yo understand u want to break up cos u 'think' it will allow more time to study/concentrate.. but this is a lie cos ull find something else to.. esp if ure partner is doing the HSC too
u need support.. and tellin them u are scared is the first steps so that they kno.. if ure partners in uni..tell them u feel they belittle u if they say "pftt - HSC thats easy" and let them understand .. they will remember.. rippin their hairs out.. esp high achievers..
being heartbroken or guilty helps noone.. its the grief cycle
if problems persist..

or
physican.
or
talk to a friend.

about 20% of ppl will experience depression in their lives.. 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men.. dun become a statistic..
