Can you share your number one study tip for future students?

Revise regularly before exams, and ask your teachers if you have any questions about the content at school. Don’t be afraid to ask!

What are some of your tips to overcome stress in regards to school/tutoring?

Get everything ready, notes – and make sure you do enough preparation before class or exams. Put in the effort early on and this will definitely help.

How do you stay motivated when it comes to keeping up with your school work and assessments?

Friends at school help to keep me focused and motivated. Also, I have a competitive nature to help drive forward all the time which helps!

What are some of your main tips about subject selection at school?

I would recommend choosing subjects that you enjoy. This also does depend on your strengths and performance in the subject as well.

Lastly, consider the scaling these subjects will have on your desired ATAR. Scaling is only important if you are aiming for a high ATAR.
