Study Timetables

Setting up a study timetable is essential for HSC success. Writing a study timetable is a powerful way of staying on track when you are studying, especially in the lead up to your exam blocks (eg. Half Yearly Examinations, Trial and HSC). To begin a study timetable, schedule in your work commitments, sporting/exercise, relaxation time and then plan your subjects around this. It is recommended by BOSTES that a student preparing for the HSC will be studying 15 hours per week. This would include homework, preparing for Assessment Tasks, creating study notes and completing past examination papers to hand in to your teacher for feedback on a regular basis.

Below are a variety of templates that you may like to adapt to create your own study timetable. Stick your study timetable up on your desk and place a copy on the fridge so that your family can support you and keep you on track. You could also use coloured post-It notes to allow flexibility with subjects each week.

Study Timetable Tips

We've listed a couple of tips below to help you prepare your study timetable:

  • The most effective study is in 45 minute sessions - take small breaks as you need to study more effectively
  • Study is best done when most mentally alert - First thing in the morning or at night depending on when you focus the most (morning or night person)
  • More time should be given to difficult and least-liked subjects - this is so that you perform better in subjects you may otherwise fail. You don't need as much time spent on areas you are already good at.
  • Keep a balance - Keep yourself balanced and include time to socialise, exercise/work and more so that you don't overload yourself with study and burn out


Make sure your study timetable is somewhere you can see it. this will help you get into a routine that you have set yourself to achieve your overall exam goals.
