ZAHRA AZIMI – YEAR 12
What are the biggest challenges for you learning at home?
At the beginning I found it challenging to adjust to my school timetable and being motivated each day.
Which subject is proving the toughest to study remotely?
I’d say Chemistry, as we’re not able to do our pracs in class which usually gives me a better understanding of the topic.
What do you like about learning at home?
I enjoy working at my own pace which helps me get a lot of work done. It also gives me more time to study for my SACs… not to mention getting up 10 minutes before classes!
Have you got a favourite place at home to work?
I enjoy working at my desk in my room. Because it’s in the back part of the house, it’s usually quiet and less distracting.
What’s your iso exercise of choice?
I enjoy going on walks around the neighbourhood with my mum and siblings.
Any funny, unexpected things that have happened as a result of learning at home?
That I try and look a little nice when on video calls for my classes.
What are you most looking forward to about getting back on campus?
I can’t wait to see my friends, enjoy lunch together and physically be in classes.
What’s something you do to completely switch off from study?
I go outside and spend some time with my younger sister.
Anything you’d like to say to the rest of the BSSC community during lockdown?
Continue your hard work, but don’t forget to spend some time away from studies and focus on yourself!
