Johnnys study advice for students wanting a 90+ ATAR:
I found time management to be the largest hurdle in my final years of studying, with so much content, and school taking up half of the day, it can get really stressful. It helps to have some plans in motion so you can make the most of your study time.
Set alarms - Set alarms to remind you about your study plans. A regular reminder keeps you honest and your plans on track.
Use a wall planner - Stick a calendar or wall planner up so you can see it whenever you're studying. Mark it up with important dates, like exams and assignment due dates. Use it to block out your regular study timetable too.
Make to-do lists - Lists break tasks down into manageable chunks. At the start of the week, make a list of the things that you need to have done by the end of the week. Make a to-do list at the start of each study session too, so that you're clear about what you need to be doing with your time.
Set time limits - Before you start your study session, have a look at your to-do list and give yourself a set time to spend on each task. If you don't get something done in the set time, consider whether it's the best use of your time to keep going with it, or to start working on something else.
I hope to seeing you in my class!
