    Re: Year 9 & 10 Chat Thread

    Can anyone offer some advice about studying? I've been studying for like 3 hours a day on weekdays and 4 on weekends but I feel like I haven't retained much information. I'm mainly focusing on English, maths and science. English I'm decent at but science and maths, while I really like them, I'm not getting the grades I want (mid to high 80's). Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Have you been taking breaks? It's really important to take a break every once in a while - find a pattern that works for you. Browser extentions can help by reminding you to take breaks. Another thing is to hand-write notes. You're more likely remember information.

    Yeah probably study less + take more breaks as year 9 and 10 are only important for maths and english (building up skills) or science to get into your year 11 subjects. However if I was you I'd study less as you've got more years to come and those study hours are normal for year 12. If you think you won't burn out then no worries keep doing it

    Don't worry, it'll be fine as long as you study, trust me in year 11 and 12 its a whole new level and in year 11 you can fix up your mistakes since it is not counted towards the HSC.

    In these younger years try to enjoy them (not going to get this opportunity in the HSC for the most part). Studying should be like efficiency based - effective focused studying rather than what you seem to be doing with mass studying.

    The way you should stdy for maths and science is by making a set of notes from the textbook your school has for its classes (make them like as short as possible, however detailed i..e concise). Then after this just do past papers questions from your school and THSConline and other sites. Only really have to do this in the weeks prior to exams in the lower years of high school. From this identify which areas are lacking in the subject and ask a teacher or friend to explain them

    Re: Year 9 & 10 Chat Thread

    Yeah I was taking breaks. My exams were last week and now that they're finished I've entirely just been doing homework. I haven't gotten my English marks back yet but for maths I got 89% (which was the highest mark in intermediate maths) and 85%, which may go up, for science (which was the highest mark in all of year 10). Overall, for the subjects I was trying I'm pretty proud of it. I still feel like I could have done better, especially for science since I was mainly just studying off a set of notes which wasn't a very good plan in retrospect which is why I was asking about this. My handwriting has always been pretty messy despite my best efforts to improve it so do you have any other advice?

    Re: Year 9 & 10 Chat Thread

    does anyone know what i can do to improve my english marks? I did really bad in my assessments this term and im really bad at essay writing, especially with structure and analysing so if anyone can recommend some tips that would be great. also for science, i find it really hard to understand concepts and our teacher doesn't explain it well. Does anyone know of any good maybe videos or something i can watch to improve my understanding??

    Re: Year 9 & 10 Chat Thread

    is it a bad move to not take any science subjects for hsc? I was thinking of focusing more on subjects like business studies/eco. Can I still get an atar over 95? also how many hours do you guys study on weekdays and weekends and at what times?

    About 43% of hsc students don't study any science (including me) and many of them get great ATARs, including 95+.

    1. If you genuinely have an interest in science and wish to pursue it further after high school, then do it! It is not a bad move not to do any sciences.
    2. You most certainly can get an ATAR over 95 with hard work, especially with subjects you enjoy; where you will be motivated to study and revise and not see it as a trek
    3. Personally, I study and revise around 2 hours on the weekend, usually when I have time. On weekdays, I almost have no time to study or revise since I do so many extra-curriculars. At this point, you shouldn't worry about studying too much in this year instead rather relaxing and enjoying yourself before Preliminary and HSC starts. I would recommend studying for English, Math, Science (if you decide to do it in senior years) and any other subject you decide do or pursue after high school.

    I found that reading my peers' work who got good marks and trying out stuff that worked for them helped me improve a lot! Also take on feedback after each assessment and adjust study methods to see if different ones are more effective. Let me know if you need more help!

    i) Read Exempler essays (Ones getting band 6s)
    ii) Hand in practice essays and incorporate teacher feedback.
    iii) Try and use more "complex" language (e.g look at synonyms etc).
