    According to Lady GaGa I am, but for GCSE's I'm currently at B's and I HAVE to raise my game up to get A*'s.

    I'll admit for the past 2 years I have NOT tried hard enough and I want to use this Easter Time to seriously get down on some work.
    I'm targeted all A*'s, and I'm destined to go to Cambridge!!
    My timetable it to wake up at about eight, read TKAMB for about an hour, then revise History for about 2 hours, (BTW, how do you revise for History!?) then take an hour break, then annotate some poems for about an hour, do some French for an hour, take an hour break, revise Maths for about 2 hours, then exercise, then do some Art coursework for about 2 hours then sleep?

    Is this a good timetable!? Altogether I'm revising for about 7 hours a day. I just hope I stick to it.

    Please help, thank you!

    No need in revising for 7 hours per day, especially for GCSEs. Try and do revision in productive 1 hour bursts with 15/20 minute breaks. For History buy a revision guide, use Bitesize and for TKAM buy the CGP revision guide and memorise the key quotes.

    Maths is easy enough, just use www.examsolutions.co.uk

    Good luck with achieving your "destiny"!

    I'm doing 7 hours to, well I haven't yet but my timetable says I do
