    Question Heavy Content Subjects

    I slacked off when it came to preliminary content and flunked it but now im in year 12 and want to know how to study for heavy content subjects such as Math, Bio, Pdh and Senior Science and catch up with the knowledge.

    Re: Heavy Content Subjects

    Do your homework consistently, don't make excuses that you'll do it tomorrow or the teacher won't check (etc). After you get that under control you'll need to know how to 'study' which is all about listing out areas of the topic you didn't quite understand or 'get' when you first learnt it or did the homework and spending time to learn it!

    Having a list of goals on a daily basis was how I overcame the hassle of learning things that I didn't quite get, e.g. Monday would be doing Trigonometry Cosine Rule Q's and then on Tues I might switch it up to do Algebra Inequalities etc.

    Always, always, ALWAYS stay on top of each of your subjects. This is especially important for the high content subjects. Don't put it off and cram a night before because it's impossible to not only remember the content, but understand it to. You could also make notes on key points to help you revise each sub-topic consistently.

    I don't want to sound daunting but year 12 really is the most stressful year ever. I'm in my 2nd year of uni and it's definitely not even half as bad as year 12. Good luck!

    jasmine cannot wind back the clock. But those about to embark on Prelim Yr should take all work seriously. As Wolf97 above has said: "always stay on top of . . . .". Don't muck around in your Prelim year.

    Although you might not have done much in Pre-lim for Science Science and PE its not that much of a big deal, i would recommend always paying attention in class and making your notes (syllabus notes) when its fresh in your mind, also acronyms for PE are a life saver.
