    am I burnt out or just lazy?

    So prior to these past few weeks, I went on a study rampage. It was the summer holidays and I barely left the house so I could get ahead in the HSC, which I did end up doing as I covered half of the HSC biology syllabus and consolidated my knowledge for all of my other subjects as well, notably...

    Past papers or devote time to content for Trials?

    I've been getting mixed signals, between people who think that spending more time on really learning the content rather than doing past papers is better. And people who think that I should kill 2 birds with one stone and learn the content through trial papers - write down my mistakes etc. I see...

    How to study for English?

    I have no idea on how to prepare for English trials. Everyone says just know your quotes but they are so many themes and quotes to learn for a text.
