    I used the notes from someone on Get Revising: http://getrevising.co.uk/resources/t...890_1945_notes

    If you haven't got a GR account, sign up it's free and there are lots of good resources
    Thank you so much!

    I feel I have to share this revision pack I found, I think its quite useful. Good luck with history!

    Here's a revision timetable I created on GR. Can anyone interpret what Early AM, etc. means? What kind of times have they advised?

    Thanks, would you say that's enough revision for AS?
    Yes easily!

    Love your timetable! Especially the "bath" bit hahaha Making posters doesn't seem to work for me at all; I need to actually get it in my head so pretending to 'play teachers' on the whiteboard and almost teaching myself everything is more efficient. Also, since a lot of your subjects seem essay based, do 2 essays a day, actually writing them out, not just planning! It really does help me. I think some of your techniques are a little inefficient...for me anyway x)

    Depends how long you expect to revise per day.
    I'm assuming it means before 9/10 when it says Early AM.

    If you want to revise 6 hours a day, try something like this for your revision schedule:

    10:00 - 11:00
    11:30 - 12:30
    13:00 - 14:00

    16:00 - 17:00
    17:30 - 18:30
    19:00 - 20:00

    Then, all the time in between and afterwards can be your breaks.

    Good luck I did 6 hours a day last year for my AS exams, and it worked out well, so it's definitely enough

    I may be sacrificing a social life, but I "ain't" sacrificing a bath 2 essays a day? I don't think that's possible. I was going to assign each Sunday as a day for past papers

    I would take a break in between your 10:30 -12:00 and 12:00 -13:30 blocks and do the same with your evening blocks.
    More than 1 hour - 1 hour 30min of revision at a time isn't wise.

    Example for Wednesday would be:

    10:30 - 12:00 - Government and Politics
    12:30 - 14:00 - Government and Politics

    17:00 - 18:30 - History
    19:00 - 20:30 - English Literature AS

    That way you can get 6 hours done, whilst still having a 3 hour break in the middle and 30min breaks between your revision slots.

    Do bare in mind though, that the quantity of revision you do isn't everything. It's about how much you learn in those revision slots.

    So tomorrow: 6 hours.
    Thursday: 3 hours.
    Friday: 6 hours.
    Saturday: 3 hours.
    Sunday: I am taking Sunday off for past paper time.
    Monday: 6 hours.
    Tuesday: 3 hours.
    Weds: 6 hours.
    Thurs: 3 hours
    Fri: 6 hours
    Sat: 3 hours
    Sunday: Past papers.

    Is that what you mean?
    75%, so 9 days doing 6 hours and 3 days doing 3 hours, but yeah, you can arrange it how you want. Sorry, I didn't explain it very well :') But if you work well enough that should be okay anyway...
