Set yourself up for study success in T2

Congratulations on getting through your final exams and assessments for Trimester 1! Now you have a chance to take a break, it’s the perfect time to reflect on your performance and set new goals in preparation for the trimester ahead. 

Here’s our top tips to help you excel in T2.

Take a proper break

First things first: make sure you build some downtime into your trimester break! It’s important you spend some time recharging so you’re feeling rested and ready to hit the ground running once T2 begins.

Plan your trimester before you begin

Organise yourself before recommencing for T2 to start off strong.

Create a happy study space

It’s hard to concentrate on your study if you’re surrounded by chaotic mess or in a workspace that doesn’t have everything you need. A dedicated and comfortable study space can also play a big role in your motivation to study. 

Stay connected 

Spending hours poring over textbooks in isolation can undoubtedly take its toll on your sanity.

Acknowledge quirks you could improve 

We all have our weak spots! Devise a strategy to minimise the impact of your bad habits.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help
