A graduate of Sydney Girls High School and past Talent 100 student, Eugene is currently studying a Bachelor of Engineering with Space Major (Honours) at the University of Sydney. Aside from her outstanding HSC results, she is also the recipient of a High Distinction at the Australian Maths Competition. Her talents aren't just limited to mathematics and the sciences though: she's also won accolades in creative fields, receiving the P&C Prizes for both Music and Multimedia at her school.
Eugene's secrets to HSC success? She believes that rote learning and memorisation will do damage to your ability to understand your subjects. Instead, learning from first principles is important: "Make sure you understand your content! Once you understand the foundation of a concept, recalling small details comes so much more easily.
Top 5 Study Tips
1Make sure you understand your content! Once you understand the foundation of a concept, recalling small details all comes so much more easily.
2Practise! Once you've got the knowledge down, practicing a range of papers becomes key to revising and challenging what you know.
3Have a goal, whether it be an ATAR, a career, or a mark. It'll help you stay motivated in the long haul.
4Share resources with friends! I found it really helpful to exchange notes and papers to broaden my knowledge and help out a friend too.
5Sleep and eat well! Take care of yourself.
