His secrets to HSC success? Always help others because it helps you to master your own knowledge, hustle in the speed test that is the HSC and never give up.

Top 5 Study Tips
1Never give up. When something seems impossible, don't lose hope. If you don't tap, you won't snap.
2Hustle in the exam: the HSC is a speed test so go fast (especially for math); have loyalty: your peers (who you are also competing against) can be the best source of help through stressful times; show respect: having a positive outlook on things will do plenty of good.
3"You're Welcome": you'll remember information much more efficiently by helping others to understand the content so by telling someone else about what you've learnt, you'll reinforce the key concepts and eventually master the knowledge.
4Become the Best In The World at what you do through persistence and exam style practise in order to identify areas of weakness and then improve on them.
5Yes! Yes! Yes! If this is the answer to: "can I fulfill all the syllabus requirements?" then you know you're all good to go for the HSC.
