What contributed to your final year/and or HSC success?

Starting tasks and revision as early as possible helped me implement discipline and structure into my routine. Due to my tendencies to procrastinate and my busy schedule, I really needed to force myself into working. I used the mentality that I deserve to give the HSC my best effort considering how much work and time I have put into my schooling; I owed it to my friends, my family and myself!
