can you show me your timetable?
Sorry I didn't see this until now - I've never attached a picture to a post before on this website but I think I've edited my original message and it's uploaded now. Like I said that's my old timetable, my current one is much more improved upon - I can send you a picture of my current timetable tomorrow if you like?

Everyone says that they are going to do loads of hours, 6 hours a day but I doubt that you will do it! Just say 3 hours that is a lot more realistic

I truly and deeply wish you the best of luck! What subjects are they?
Thank you, Im going to need it!
One day into the revision already

And I'm doing AS Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Economics.
Biology is my biggest fear, the sheer amount of material to get through…

Probably 3 hours a day for each subject so 9 hours over each day. That may vary depending the subject I'm doing. This week I've been at my local library for most of my time. Just currently doing Past Papers and Flash Cards.

2-3 hours a day. I don't want to burn myself out and because my subjects overlap a lot (Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computing) there's not so much to do. Just past papers really, notes don't work at all for me.

Ayy I'm doing same subjects as you (except Further Maths for Physics) . Bio and Chem we were lucky as we had to learn one of the two modules for a mock pre Easter so pretty confident I got half the material down.

Economics though is another story, how are you planning to revise it?

It just gets to a stage where you just go 'I hope I know it all' and not do any more. At least in Bio or Chem you know when you've finished all the material properly, I never got that with essay subjects. GCSE Geography was a 3 and half hour exam, came on the same day as chemistry aswell so you can imagine that was a bad day for me

Yeah that's so true....oh wow that sounds like it was rough! hahaha
But even with biology it's difficult like its easy to memorise but the questions are all application and they are so hard to understand.
I think the hardest exam day I have this year is got to be the day where I have my English lit paper and my second geo paper on the same day! :'( I'm going to have to revise extra for those to papers

Yeh it really was, but all over now. Yeh I guess thats the case, questions in science do vary a lot and can be confusing at times. Ouchh that really sounds awful, good luck for that . (And don't panic and not sleep the night before, I know that really doesn't help with anything!)

I'm aiming for 6-7 hours a day, with a total of one day off each week (I have a 3 week break) Been working since Tuesday, and I've managed it so far
I just work in 45 minute chunks and take a 15 minute break between each one, and try to mimic the amount I'd work were I at school, so 9am-5pm with an hour lunch break. I did the same thing for GCSE and I managed to pull up all my grades by at least 2 grades compared to what I was predicted just before the Easter, so I know it works lol
