Free Study Tip In year 12, the thing that got me through was I studied all night until my favourite show came on every day. When it was on, I would take a break and watch the show. But when it was over, I went back to studying. This was the one thing I did besides studying every night, and it provided just the right break.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors When doing your essay research, write a draft early, then leave it for a few days, and then come back to it. Then reread your draft. You will find mistakes in your work which can be corrected before final submission, thus obtaining a higher grade.
