Product description

Updates in this new edition include a discussion on how to avoid being trapped by social networking plus more encouragement from leading school principals: Be positive, avoid disaster thinking. You are more than your 'score'! Michael Carr-Gregg writes: 'One of the new themes I am incorporating in this updated edition is that essentially Year 12 is like a game and once you know how to play the game, your chances of getting what you want out of the year increase rapidly. There are essentially two types of Year 12 student the ones that get it and the ones that don't. SURVIVING YEAR 12 reveals some of the key competencies, in terms of skills, knowledge and strategies for those who get it. Using humour and worldly wisdom, he explores many critical considerations:·placing these exams in perspective·studying smarter·ways to overcome anxiety and stress·getting enough sleep (the best study tool of all!)·setting goals·dealing with procrastination·how to relax·ensuring your exercise and diet regimes are good·how to cope with the exams themselves·managing Facebook time
