Things to avoid (let's start with that):
1. Last-minute cramming
2. Sleeping past 1 a.m.
3.Not attending exam return day (I emphasize this one as wrong mark on the exam= wrong final mark that you cannot explain, especially to universities)
4. Procrastinating on supp apps and doing a poor job on it
5. Not applying until the deadline for OUAC applications
6. Stressing out on stuff that didn't even happen
7. Lastly, making your program choices NOT based on what you WANT to be doing, but more based on something else (such as friends, peer pressure, parties, etc.). This stuff comes after your interests.

Things to look forward to:
1. Helping others out. This is anyone from your classmates, friends in lower grades, teachers, to caretakers at your school. They will surely remember you for it!
2. Winning awards (at competitions and stuff)
3. PROM
4. Graduation! You're finally done!

Other tips
1. Manage your time to your comfort level. When will you be doing extracurriculars? When will you be studying? When will you be out with friends? When will you take time to yourself?
2. If you have a test the next day (and if it takes you more than 1 hour to prepare for it), deal with that after you get homework from other classes done (unless it's too much). You should study comfortably.
3. It's your last year. Enjoy it!

A lot of the things to aviod here can be generally summarized into three words (one contraction): DON'T BE LAZY!

And yes, these are some great tips!

Edit: I wonder what are the horrible stuff you heard about UTSG that made you stay away from it completly, is it the rumour that first year average is in the C range?

That is essentially how a lot of students feel every single year, whether it be grade 7, 9, 11 or somewhere in university. I feel it too.

Try to make lower-year friends, help out your teachers, take over leading a club, and participate in some higher level contests (CMO, NOF, IPhO/IChO/IMO etc)
