These top students tell us how they blitzed the year, each in their own way. The book covers all areas of a student's life and is a must-have for students preparing for, or undertaking, Year 13. Features: Concise and well-organised ideas and anecdotes from recent top students. Practical tips on how to maximise study skills, while maintaining a healthy life balance - many top students are very active outside the classroom, and give advice on how excel at school while juggling friends, families, and fitness. Advice on how to cope with stress and pressure from parents, peers, and teachers. First published April 2010
