    Re: Preparation for Year 11

    Hey i can only help with some of these subjects, but this is what i would suggest:

    Overall: If you know who your teachers are i would go to see them before the end of term, ask them for any resources eg textbooks. Your teachers should be one of your best resources (while mine are at least)

    Japanese: I know there are many language apps online eg. duolingo so you could attempt to begin to teach yourself the basics

    Legal: if you get your hands on a textbook, i would definitely start summarising, as for me legal work can quickly build up

    English Advanced: You should start reading/analysing your prescribed text or bein practising creative writing (depending on what unit your starting with) Again you should see your teacher to discuss this.

    Maths: If your prepared to teach your self, i think it would be helpful to get your hands on a textbook

    Not sure about bio and music

    There are many online sites that help you self learn a subject

    Good luck

    You should just relax as it's the last holiday you're going to get. Maybe read over the syllabuses, textbooks etc.

    You can psychologically prepare by relaxing

    1. Relax, and sleep
    2. If you are desperate for work, then start practising some mathematics questions from a textbook.
    3. Watch Japanese movies with English subtitles
    4. Maybe read your English prescribed books.

    Ask your school what texts you've been assigned next year. Have you received a book list? Not that important, I'd focus on relaxing at the moment.

    -------

    Definetly buy the ATAR Notes books for each of your subjects, these are super helpful with studying and revising work before you learn it, so you are familiar with the content!
