Hey there! I'm a couple months into year 11 and it's not easier than year 10 however it's not necessarily harder. You'll be learning new content all the while ensuring you know what you've learnt throughout last year. I've just started taking my mock exams and so far, they've been alright. The best thing to do is to not worry because everything that comes up you've learnt and to revise in the way that you know how, trust me, it works. For improving English and Maths, I recommend looking at feedback that your teachers have given you for work and using that to improve. When it comes to putting it to practice, do past papers and kindly ask your teacher to mark them for you.

Hope that helps!!

Hey there.

In my experience, Year 11 is different to Year 10 - but not necessarily harder. You'll probably be expected to be more proactive and independent with your studies, and teachers may give you a bit more freedom (especially if you're at a smaller school - senior classes tend to be significantly smaller too). But the content itself is unlikely to be much harder - teachers only really talk it up because it's all leading up to the big Year 12 exams. I have a couple of friends who hadn't done too well in Year 10, but applied themselves in senior years and ended up doing quite well in Years 11 and 12, so even if school isn't your thing right now there's definitely time to improve.

As for how to get better at English and Maths over the holidays, I second Casey's suggestion of going through feedback you've been given so far. Practice exams and questions are also very helpful; do as many as you can. There are also books out there you can get specifically to help with this kind of thing, so have a look in the Education section of your local bookshop and see what's there. If you know anyone who's gone through high school before you, ask them for advice and suggestions, especially if they went through school in your state. Also, I can't stress enough how helpful group study sessions are; they're one of the main reasons I passed my HSC. Get together with people in your classes or even just your year (you can take turns quizzing each other if you do different subjects) and come up with study exercises: flash cards, trivia, games, competitions, whatever you can do to make it more fun.

Above all, remember that your teachers are here to help, and the good ones will always be willing to give you a hand when you need it - so don't be afraid to ask. And try to study as interactively as you can - get friends and family to help you, so that it's a more exciting, rewarding experience.

Good luck with it all!
