HSC - half way there
HSC: Posted 14-9-15 Deadline - No Deadline
The arrival of Spring brings a double edged sword to the HSC student. 50% of your assessment is now complete, and that means there is still 50% left to do; and it all hangs on the final examinations! Does this realisation put a ‘spring’ in your step? I doubt it. Having seen hundreds of Year 12 students approach the spring break over the years, I am all too well aware that the task of hunkering back down to study after the final bell goes in term 3 is no easy task. Do your best. Make it count.
