- According to leading adolescent psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg, many students and their families are given a distorted view of the importance of the final exams, leading to unrealistic expectations and extraordinary pressure on the students.
- In Surviving Year 12 he shows both students and parents how to keep the exams - and the year in general - in perspective.
- 'Parents should focus on the student's emotional wellbeing.' he says, 'rather than on the quality of work being done. In this book I offer the best advice from successful students I taught at university - the secrets of studying smart.'
- Using his distinctive mix of humour and worldly wisdom, Dr Carr-Gregg discusses the most important skills for creating a successful year.
He provides practical advice on how to:
- Study smarter - how to deal with stress and anxiety
- Get enough sleep (the best study too of all!)
- Set and achieve your goals
- Maintain your emotional health and your social life
- Develop good exercise and diet regimes
- Cope with the exams themselves.
- Surviving Year 12 includes a special section for parents on how to help the whole family get through the year as well as comments from student, teachers and principals - all designed to help your keep your sanity intact.
