    Studying for Trials

    Since Trials is only a term away from now, I was wondering on how I can go about studying for it. The subjects I do are:

    - English Adv.
    - 3U Maths
    - Physics
    - Chemistry
    - Economics

    Since we're not done covering all the content in school and still have prac exams for both sciences and in-class tests for English, Eco and Maths, I was wondering how I can study for BOTH the incoming tests AND trials. My exams are relatively late in the term (weeks 8-10), and my trials are very early on Term 3 (week 3). So, do I currently focus on topics I'll get examined on in the upcoming exams or do I start doing past papers/ practice questions based on everything I've learnt so far and prepare for trials?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    You can do a bit of study for the trials here and there but recommend focusing on the more immediate assessments first.

    Do the tests contribute to your grades? Agree with Trebla, focus on the intermediate exams, and also do a bit of work for trials alongside.

    Yes, all of the intermediate exams contribute to the overall internal mark. How would you recommend balancing studying for trials and the intermediate exams at the same time? Need some advice for time management.
