Importance of June Holidays

June holidays are coming and JC2 students should really grab this last opportunity that you have to study. This is effectively your time you have a full month to study for your upcoming A’levels.

Through the years, we see many students who have their efforts paid off for working hard during June Holidays. So make sure you plan out your June Holiday well to study and catch up as much work as you can. Doing well in Mid-Years is a good start and also confidence boosting to your A’levels preparation. Some advice…

Self-discipline goes a long way. Not just in studies.

Start waking up early. Get your brains tuned to functioning in the mornings. Students who claim to be only functioning/ thinking only at night, should realise that your exams are mostly in the MORNINGS. And since we know that the exams are in the morning, maybe you want to start making your brain work in the morning.

Give yourself timed practice to train your time management and speed. This is very crucial in Mathematics. Putting yourself under time constraints is the best. And if its a 3 hours paper, sit there and do for 3 hours. Its amazing how students get restless after 2 hours of studying. How can one take a 3 hours paper when you can barely study for 2 hours. You can always find a friend and do the practice paper together. Peer studies are really helpful.

Try not lead a sedentary lifestyle. Time and time, we see some students burning out from studying. Do some sports. C’mon, you still have PROM to attend and its right after A’levels (first week of December, maybe?). You don’t want to be buying a new uniform too. And if you don’t like to exercise, then slot in 30 minutes of TV, YouTube (Just don’t get carried away.) every 3-4 hours of studying. Our brain needs some rest too. Be sure to sleep. Sleeping reinforces your memory and sharpens your thinking.

Seek help soon. Really, your teachers need a life too. So settle consultation hours with them early. Don’t flood them in the last week of June. They don’t owe you a living. Be considerate.
