“Throughout Year 12 I always made sure to balance my time, making sure I got through my study and homework, while still getting enough sleep, exercise, social time on the weekends and time for myself. This helped to make sure I was very efficient and effective in my study.” – Ella Guinane.
“Giving yourself a break is as important as working hard. Rather than "study" for four hours straight, do 30 minute study sessions with five minute resting periods in between. In doing so, your brain will not wander off as much and you'll maximise productivity.” – Thomas Thien Ngoc Nguyen.
“To succeed and perform my best academically I had an “outlet”. An activity outside of studying that allowed me to step away from the books for a few hours each week and reenergise myself. It’s impossible to be switched on and studying all the time, your brain will simply be overloaded. Allow yourself to step away from the books. You’ll return more focused and motivated to excel.” – Declan O’Brien.
