"They were born smart,"
- a clueless student.
We think differently
Catch Up With Top Achievers: 2020 HSC and Beyond is a collection of articles written by the best performing HSC students in the State - HSC State Rankers. In our study guide, each author outlines their unique and results-driven study strategies. They also provide specific advice towards succeeding in their area of expertise. The practical study methods presented in this book are by no means conventional. Instead, they reflect the reality of what it is to be a student in 2020, and how to best succeed in the HSC whilst still maintaining a sense of balance.
In it, we answer many key questions faced by students and parents, such as:
WHAT were their strategies for success?
HOW did they cope with the stress?
WHY did they work so hard?
Many of these students were not top achievers before Year 12, and do not represent an unattainable level of work ethic or intelligence.
If they can do it, you can too!

Adam is founder of Catch Up With Top Achievers and Computer Science student at UNSW. Right after high school graduation in 2018, he founded Catch Up With Top Achievers to address some of the fundamental study issues such as subject selection, note-taking, essay writing, planning, time and stress management that are faced by the students in their senior years. In June 2019, along with twelve other HSC, he self-published his first-ever never-before-seen study guide, documenting the lives of these top achievers as well as their unique personal approach to maximising their results. Since its publication, Adam and his contributors have been involved in education discussions in the media and the 2019 Edition became an Amazon Education best-seller in October 2019.
