Students beat exam stress with helpful study tips
SENIOR high school students across the region are hitting the books hard for their end of year exams but Warwick State High School (WSHS) Year 11 students Lucy Boland Emily Hamlet said they were ready to go.
"I feel prepared," Lucy said.
"I've spent lots of time studying. It has been busy and hectic but I think I have everything organised."
Emily said she had more assignments than exams this term.
"I think I'm ready, well I hope I'm ready," she said.
WSHS Assistant Principal Daryl Thompson said there were plenty of helpful study tips in the student's diaries.
"A study session is usually one hour," the tips read.
"Made up of 50 minutes, concentrated, uninterrupted quality application.
"Ten minutes break for some brisk exercise, refreshment and getting ready for the next study session."
Other tips include drinking a glass of water before picking up a pen, break down tasks into smaller ones and do daily summaries of the work covered.
