It depends how you define 'succeed' in regards to the HSC.I got 99+ ATARI, and I can tell you that you will NOT succeed if you don't study during the summer break.
I would call my HSC results a success (95+ ATAR), but I still enjoyed my holidays - maybe spending the last week of the Christmas holidays doing the holiday assignments I'd been given (I think I had 2 or 3?).
So I would have to say your post is misguiding - working primarily during the school term periods will easily suffice, provided you work smarter not harder.
