- Study smart and hard: The easiest ways to study smart are to prepare ahead of class, listen attentively in class, do your homework, revise and recap.

- Learn how to be confident: The 2 years leading up to A levels are intensive, but rewarding. Having confidence in yourself and your abilities is essential. It is also an important trait which should be displayed during a scholarship interview. It’s useful to practice potential interview questions with your friends and speak to your seniors about their experiences.

- Learn how to manage your finances: As a student, you might have not put in enough thought about how to manage your expenses yet. However, there are plenty of ways to learn how to be savvy with your money. You can watch some youtube videos on budgeting and track your expenditure.
