Let’s not beat around the bush; the year 2020 has been chaos. Schools and businesses have closed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and everyday life has been disrupted. It’s only natural that education has not been consistent for students. However, COVID-19 doesn’t have to negatively impact your results. Check out these tips to see how you can navigate your final year of high school in 2020. 

Get expert help

You may be amazed to discover there are VCE tutors online who are ready and waiting to offer assistance. Whether you feel you lack knowledge in certain subjects, or you simply want to get ahead, tutors can help. 

VCE tutors can also assist with relevant exam preparation and an abundance of study guides. The best part is, the assistance you receive can be entirely online. Private tutoring sessions, class recordings, practice questions, and mock tests and exams are all part of the online offerings in today’s digital world. 

Ask for help

If you are struggling with something, then ask for help. Your last year of high school can be a scary time, and you may begin to feel overwhelmed. If there is a subject you struggle with, then the sooner you seek help with it, the sooner you can get to grips with it. You won’t always understand all components of the assigned work, and that’s okay, so long as you speak up and get the assistance you need.  

Identify your strengths and weaknesses

We can’t all be good at everything. Some people struggle with maths, while others can’t grasp the creativity involved in English. It’s crucial as you navigate your final year of high school to identify where you are excelling and where you’re not. By doing so, you can dedicate the time needed to developing your understanding of problematic subjects. You can then hit the books on your own, or ask for help from an online tutor or teacher. 

It can be tempting to focus a lot of time on what you’re already good at. After all, you can speed through the answers and feel confident that you’ve covered all bases. However, working on what you know means you dedicate less time to what you don’t know. 

Stay organised

Life may be a little chaotic at the moment. If you are studying from home, then it’s paramount to have a structure in your day – almost as if you were still in a school environment. Stay organised by dedicating a part of your home entirely to study. Have a comfortable chair, decent lighting, and a quiet, distraction-free area that allows you to focus. Even music can help put you in the zone.     

Strike a balance  

When you’re nearing the end of your schooling, study will take up a lot of your time. You can spend hours just going over the course materials for one subject. While it’s paramount that you’re prepared for exams, it’s just as important to strike a balance. 

Set time aside each day for fun. Get out in nature. Participate in sport. Go out with your friends. As they say, everything in moderation.   

The year 2020 is likely going to be one of the hardest of your studying life. Interruptions from a pandemic can have more of an impact than you might think. Still, if you get help from tutors, structure your study, and set up space for your work, then you may just find you’re as prepared as you need to be to end your final year in high school on a high.
