    Hey guys, I've been seeing a few conflicting opinions on the whole idea of whether to study during these summer holidays. Lately I've been doing about 6.5 hours of school work each day (dedicating at least 2 hours for my visual arts major work, 1 hour for EE2 major work, and then writing notes and essays for the rest of my subjects each day). I'm starting to question whether this is necessary though, with a lot of people with high ATARs saying they didn't do heaps during these holidays.

    For the (ideal) ATAR that I'm aiming for, am I wasting my time that may be better spent just chilling out? In terms of burning out, I haven't felt any effects of it so far, and each day I feel really happy to be doing my school work (especially major works and French).
    Wow 6.5hrs every day is so impressive!! I struggle to force myself to do like an hour each day haha

    If you feel really happy doing your school work then keep doing it!! However, if you start to feel exhausted then it's ok to take a day or two off to chill or hang out with friends. These holidays are probably the best time to chill and to look after yourself before exams come in and the workload increases. Also, the amount of time you should spend studying over the holidays depends on how well you coped with the workload of the first term and your goals eg. if you did really well you don't need to spend as much time studying if you don't want to or you can maybe learn ahead. However, if you struggled during the first term then revising over stuff you've learnt over the holidays would be really beneficial for the new year. People who are naturally smart may not need to spend as much time studying over the holidays because they can easily understand stuff taught in class without much extra work at home, while others may need extra study time to go over hard concepts.

    It is true that a lot of people can get high atars without studying too much during these holidays- either they're genius and they don't study much in general or they treat these holidays as a break and use their time efficiently during the school term. But study habits are different for everybody; do what makes you happy.

    Enjoy your holidays!

    Does anyone feel like time is moving way too fast? 2017 FLEW by. We're almost in the middle of January... School starts in 2 weeks... HSC in 8 months... and I'll be 18 by then!

    I read an article that time itself is not moving fast, but instead our perception of time is accelerating due to increasing "vibrations". Some weird law of attraction musing. Either way, I find myself steadily descending into a panic attack whenever I think about it. D:

    I agree, time just seems to be slipping away
    A year ago I was excited to start yr11, less than a year from now and I'll have to think about work and money and life stuff
    I like the theory where time goes faster simply because our perceptions of time are relative to how long we've lived eg a year to a five year old is forever bc its a fifth of their lives, but a year to an eighty year old is nothing bc its an eightieth of their life

    Re: 2018ers Chit-Chat Thread

    Hi guys,

    This is what I've been doing these holidays:

    - Catching up on notes for Modern, Ancient and Legal
    - My major works
    - Reading English prescribed texts

    My subjects are heavily humanities-based; I do English Adv, Ext 1 and 2, Legal Studies, Modern History and Ancient History. I admit I didn't try as hard in the first semester in Year 12, so I'm using the holidays to catch up, particularly on notes. In no way am I reading ahead for next semester's content, which I see a lot of people doing. Is this bad? Should I speed up my pace and get ahead like everyone else is doing? I don't want to be behind haha

    It's not a bad thing to not read ahead, as I'm sure plenty of students won't be doing so. Also, not reading ahead doesn't mean you'll fall behind, as it's all a matter of getting work and notes done on time.
    If you simply want to use these holidays to catch up on notes, do major works and read prescribed texts then by all means do so.
    In all honesty, a kid could hypothetically teach themselves the entire syllabus for a subject in these holidays, but it doesn't guarantee excellent results. Do whatever you feel works best for you.

    For those of you doing Legal Studies, what topics are you doing? As far as I know I'm doing World Order and Consumers.

    Also for English, what texts are y'all doing for AOS? I'm doing The Tempest and The Alchemist

    Lucky! I love Robert Frost. It would've been amazing if we could do him for AOS. We're doing The Motorcycle Diaries, which according to my teachers, was used to obtain many Band 6s in previous years. It's okay - very stream-of-consciousness-ey and reminds me of On The Road by Jack Keruoac, which I started reading in Year 9 before giving up halfway through.

    For English, we did Robert Gray's collection of poems for AOS.

    The poems were:
    - Journey, the North Coast
    - Meatworks
    - North Coast Town.

    I did and essay and I used "The Boat" by Nam Le for my related text. http://www.sbs.com.au/theboat/

    Daaamn quite a few people doing shelter or family. Family sounds interesting but I'm so hyped for world order + I already have an issue I wanna write about for consumers

    Honestly so glad I'm doing a Shakespeare text for AOS. I've actually kind of got the hang of reading Shakespearean lol thanks schooling system

    On school days I usually get about 7-8 hours (sleep from 11pm to 7am, or 10;30pm to 6;30am for eng ext 1), and 8-9 hours of sleep on weekends / school holidays.

    During the school term, usually 10:30-6 or 7 (so between 7 and 8 hours of sleep).
    Weekends usually 8-10 hours

    Re: 2018ers Chit-Chat Thread

    It's funny how I was so willing and ready to sacrifice sleep for success, but now I know that it is actually an imperative component to perform well.

    If only we could take one second to press a button embedded into our bodies that automatically gives us the energy that we would've otherwise received from 8 hours of good sleep. It would make life so much easier!
