    I'm developing a little studying/BoW regime and I'd like to know your own optimal pace and why it suited you. (of course mine will be different I'd just like some insight)

    Congratulations again!
    I got 99+ ATARI, and I can tell you that you will NOT succeed if you don't study during the summer break.

    Studying excessively during the summer break -

    It's definitely a good idea to be organising/writing notes, finishing off as much homework/assignments as possible, but don't freak out if you didn't do too much work. If you're behind, or you're really uncertain about a particular subject, use this time to perfect your skills until you're as confident as you can be, however, if you're a smart, solid worker, don't get too down on yourself if you went out a little too much and didn't get enough work done.

    I worked pretty hard during these holidays last year, but I didn't 'study'. I finished off extra work (that many people in my classes didn't ever end up doing, and yet many got 97+), I started doing my notes for content-based subject such as Ancient History (this was really helpful later on!) and I familiarised myself with HSC dot points and criteria. That last bit was the most useful!!! You need to know exactly what each subject requires to get the best marks. People who know 150% of the course can't write 150% of their knowledge in a 40 minute essay, so make sure you know how to approach assignments concisely, so looking at the criteria during these holidays is key. It will help you so much throughout the year.

    I didn't get enough done during the summer break, and as soon as I got back to school I got glandular fever and my attendance was about 3/4 or less throughout the year, so whoever says that you need to 'study' really hard these holidays to get 99+ is being over-dramatic. Doing work is definitely a must, but don't stress out too much, you shouldn't overload yourself in this break. Relax! Go out! Have fun!

    Awwww. I have a mate that got the same as you! That'd be annoying.

    Nevertheless. An excellent result considering your expectations!

    HSC 2009: 99.80 ATAR

    estimations:
    Matrix UMAX: 99.85 ATAR
    BOS Sam: 99.80 UAI

    pretty reliable estimations in my case :]

    Hi-5 The long summer break is the best time to get ahead of your friends, all you have to do is set up a challenge with the people you usually interact with.

    It depends how you define 'succeed' in regards to the HSC.

    I would call my HSC results a success (95+ ATAR), but I still enjoyed my holidays - maybe spending the last week of the Christmas holidays doing the holiday assignments I'd been given (I think I had 2 or 3?).

    So I would have to say your post is misguiding - working primarily during the school term periods will easily suffice, provided you work smarter not harder.

    Smarter not harder, would revising your old notes be studying smarter? It seems like a waste of time.

    Writing out a short story and refining it as well as reading Frankenstein seems pretty efficient to me

    Depends on your learning style really.

    Good job - I did Frankenstein in English too, that's a good module right there =)

    It's good to do some stuff on the holidays. But generally speaking, people who go too hard too early will either burn out or miss out on having a bit of fun.

    77.95. Worked hard in class but bludged when it came to the Exam Period, so it evened out.

    In the end I qualified for all pre-requisites and got something along the lines of what I wanted at Monash Uni, so I'm not complaining. In fact I'm thrilled.
