Some of the information is directed towards senior students who are preparing for external exams, however, the resources are still helpful for all students. The earlier students can develop positive learning habits, the better.

Learning doesn’t only happen at school. For most students, additional time will be required outside of school time, to understand and remember new information, as well as practise skills to help master them. Everyone is capable of learning though, and there are certain strategies that will help the process.

This section will explore how to best prepare yourself for learning, strategies you can use to study, hints for writing great essays, exam tips, as well as links to a variety of online resources.
