    I'm in year 10 and want straight A*'s in my GCSE's as I want to be a surgeon. I find that under a schedule I focus better and procrastinate less, so I have created one:
    History, Bio, Chem require a lot of studying. Maths & Physics are my weakest subjects.

    Mon Wed*
    Biology 4.40 - 5.20
    Chemistry 5.30 - 6.10
    History * 6.20 - 7.00
    (History: Saturday 2.20 - 3.00)

    Tues
    R.E, Spanish, Geography - 4.20 - how long it takes me (These subjects I find easiest and I finish studying them pretty quickly, they don't require much attention so only study one day a week)
    Physics tutoring at 6.30 - 7.30.

    Thurs
    Physics 4.40 - 5.10
    Saturday: 11.00 - 12.00

    Thurs*
    Maths 5.40 - 6.00
    Saturday 1.00 - 2.00

    Thurs
    English 6.20 - 6.50

    Friday - Day off
    Sunday - Day off

    During studying sessions I will do past papers, go over the specification and read my textbook, revision guides and exercise books.
    I have included many breaks for free time. Is it too much? Too little? What should I add to it, or take out of it? Does it sound like a very good schedule to achieve my goal of becoming a surgeon? Thanks!

    That looks good - for now. I think 40 minutes works best (for me anyway) so I agree with that. You've prioritised the more difficult subjects too.
    It's pretty similar to my timetable

    I think when the exams edge nearer, I'll make the revision more intense and do more each day.
