Good luck man. You sure have a hell of a lot to do.

I attempted to keep a journal this year (you know the whole, catpure everydays experiences and to reflect over in the future in regards to final year of schooling), but yeah lasted about a month. I had too much to do.

Yeah, but I've got 38 days to do that :D

thats a shame, you should've kept going, cuz apparently journalling in general helps you improve heaps. did you post it here? maybe its easier here since if you stop posting ppl will think - this guy was all talk.

Yeah, I keep contemplating starting it again. But, then think it's pointless with the massive gap. Oh well. Nah, this was more a personal thing as well. It was just something I wanted to do, so I could look back and see how important I saw this year to be. Since, it's the final year of school I thought it'd be important, to record everything. (I think History Extension is corrupting my brain and its workings). I donno, difficult to explain.

This is how you should do it for either maths
1. Learn vaguely all the topics from a textbook such as cambridge.
2. Do like 50+ past papers (most important) - this is much more effective as opposed to doing exercises out like 3+ different textbooks; also saves time
3. Sit HSC and get High band 6

+1

Also OP, guarantee you will not get half those goals done.

Aside from the bashing, I think that is far too much to do in a short period of time. Good luck.

@ OP: just pick out the most important goals or consolidate some of the smaller goals together.

Also you should try to practice to get questions correct on the first go, even if it might be a bit slow at first. That's how I learn :p

That is a hectic amount to do in that time.

Wish I had a plan though, atm I am just going through everything we have done for each subject, haven't done many questions for chem or physics yet hey, that all comes later.
Except mine start Wednesday :S
