Creating New Habits for Study Success

It’s one thing to know you need to use certain study strategies and techniques (e.g. create mind maps, break your work down into small chunks and review your notes regularly). But knowledge of these strategies is only the starting point.

Next you have to apply these strategies. You need to build these strategies into your daily routine.


Tips for Acing Year 12

Year 12 can put a lot of pressure on you, but think about this: ‘whatever your goals may be for the future, keep in mind that there are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is the same’. That’s some pretty sound advice from Phil Newnham, a teacher and careers practitioner in a large government school in Melbourne’s east. Phil also recommends you ‘plan for your future but don’t let it get in the way of a successful Year 12 – nothing is final; there are always other options.’

The Complete University Guide to Study in the UK

The UK is one of the world's most popular destination for students from overseas. In fact, more than 400,000 international students enrol each year. International students considering the UK have a choice of over 140 universities and higher education institutions, each offering a great range of tertiary qualifications that will be recognised the world over.


Study in the USA. What is the SAT?

The SAT (which used to stand for Scholastic Aptitude Test but now stands for literally nothing) is one of two college entry exams necessary for US college admissions.

Colleges use your SAT score to measure how ready you are for college courses as well as your future potential.

Each college has its own average SAT score expectation but US colleges assess your application holistically so it’s possible to get into your dream college without getting the best SAT score.
