5 Tips for Effective Goal Setting

Setting goals for your ATAR subjects doesn’t have to be complicated.

Here are five easy steps to get you started:

Know Your End Goal

Think about what you want to achieve by the end of each term. It could be a certain percentage in a subject or ATAR score or getting into your dream university course. Once you have this big goal, break it down into smaller goals for each subject.

Use SMART Goals

Make sure your goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound (SMART). Instead of saying “I want to do better in Math,” set a goal like “I will improve my Math score by 10% in the next test by practicing for 45 minutes every day.”

Create a Study Schedule

A good study plan helps you stay on track. Decide when you’ll study and take breaks. Try different ways of studying, like making flashcards or studying with friends, to see what works best for you. Adjust your plan as you go to make sure it’s helping you meet your goals.

Ask for Feedback

Feedback helps you know where you need to improve. Ask your teachers, tutors, or classmates for advice and help when you need it. They can offer support and guidance to help you reach your goals.

Check Your Progress

Take time regularly to think about how you’re doing. Are you getting closer to your goals? If something isn’t working, don’t be afraid to change your plan. Staying flexible and willing to adjust your strategies will help you succeed.

Remember, setting goals is about making a plan to achieve what you want.

Keep it simple, stay focused, and you’ll be on your way to achieving your ATAR goals. Good luck!
