    Don't focus on different separate - focus on different exams. Write down all the exams you have and I can try to help you organise it

    i try and revise a subject/exam a day. i need several hours revising something before i actually make any significant headway on it, would be really ineffective if i just revised each thing for a couple of hours at a time

    I do two subjects a day for four of the weekdays. One subject in frees and another after college. I leave one of the weekdays off to just chill in, usually my busiest day (tuesday). Then I do two subjects on Saturday and two others on Sunday. Usually for an hour or two each time.

    Microeconomics
    Macroeconomics
    History 1
    History 2
    Geography 1

    ^ Just rough names as I don't do these subjects so don't know much about them. Ok, first thing do not do History 1 & 2 together and the Micro & Macro economics together.

    Next, make a timetable organising all the work you have to do and make to do lists everday with one or two tasks working towards a big goal e.g. finish everything off by...

    I also got 5 exams in May and am doing a bit of each subject in one day but I have 3 maths modules so I obviously don't study all three everyday but I do with Biology & Chemistry as I only have one exam for those two subjects. I just spend time with all of them e.g. I do about three C1 papers a week, some C2 chapters and exam questions and then revise over M1 aswell, all you need to do is organise yourself very well and you'll be fine.

    1 subject/exam per day is what I prefer.

    I do 1 hour per module every week. In the weekends I do a bit more, maybe 2 hours for modules I'm falling behind on.

    Works for me.

    I revise one lesson's worth of work for Biology, and one lessons worth of Sociology a day, (2 lessons a day from each subject on the WE) and then one text out of 7 from the english anthology every couple of days (I have picked 7 multi purpose ones from the 30 in the book, so I can really get to grips with them!)

    and that seems to work for me, and it's not so much that I'm becoming crazy, but I'm getting through the work, over easter I'll probably, do a weekend's lot most days - with some just dedicated to past papers and practice essays for Sociology and English!

    24 hours per day, require 8-9 hours for a decent nights sleep, leaves 15-16 hours...

    Brush teeth, shower .etc + breakfast 1 hour, Lunch 1 hour, Dinner 1 hour...

    12-13 hours per day for study time... Maybe 11-12 hours, so 1 hr for star jumps, video game, masturbation, booty call .etc or whatever...

    Forget school, class, lectures .etc, self learning is the way forward..
