Get the most out of your time with a study planner that helps you build homework and revision around the rest of your life. Here’s a simple guide to creating your very own personalised planner.
Why make a study planner?
A study planner, or revision timetable, is a calendar or diary that includes all your activities, lessons and other commitments.
Having a good plan will help you stay motivated and balance your time across different subjects. It'll also mean you won’t run out of time when the revision pressure is on.
Tips for making a great study planner
- Be realistic – there's no point setting a plan that you won't be able to stick to
- Make it detailed – break your revision into chunks, specify times for studying and assign each time to a particular subject
- Be prepared to change your study planner – life always throws up surprises, and some topics may take you longer than you planned for
- Give yourself little rewards after a study session to stay motivated
- Build in breaks – you don't want to get burned out
- Look at your study plan as a set of guidelines rather than something that should be followed without thinking
- Give yourself time before an exam to review all the content you need to learn.
