My top 5 study tips

1Stay organised - keep all notes and work in orderly piles that are easy to keep track of. Ensure you print when you need and don't let it backlog.

2Keep a loose timetable - take note of which subjects you'll study each day to ensure you spend equal time on all without prioritising subjects unknowingly. Generally undertake 2-3 subjects a day so you can alternate between them and maintain focus.

3Make a plan for each day of what you want to accomplish. Include realistic expectations for the time that will be spent on each task.

4Keep healthy snacks and water near your study area so you don't need to keep leaving your work.

5Avoid simply reading and highlighting notes; rather, prioritise doing active practise and past papers.
