Starting VCE can seem very daunting! You are all of a sudden faced with SACs, exams, university open days and tones of homework. However, one very easy way to tackle this overwhelming stack of work is to make a calendar.
Here at Studyclix, we've made it easy for you by making a year planner so you have all the important dates in one place. We recommend you printing it out, adding in the dates for your school's SACs and hanging it in your room for easy access.

University open days:
Most university open days are in 3rd term which means that you will most likely have a lot of schoolwork at that time. To save time at the open day (and leave yourself more time to study for VCE), we recommend going onto each university's website, looking at all the events they have for that day and then making a plan for what you are doing throughout the day. This way you aren't walking around aimlessly and you are able to get everything you want out of this day.
Most universities have not released their dates for their open days but here are some links to keep you updated. If there is a university you are interested in but is not listed here, we recommend regularly checking their website for further information.
