    Last year I made a weekly revision timetable that I repeated and worked out well, this year I am in and out of school a lot and my free time changes each week, we also have study leave. Would it be better to make a timetable for each week or just try and stick to a weekly one? How could I go about making one each week

    If your free time changes per week, you'd be better off creating a new timetable for each week. Now this might not work for you, but this does for me so here goes -

    I first of all put in any lectures which are set in stone and cannot be changed at specific times, then I add in anything else which I want to do (ie watch telly) at specific times (ie holby city runs from 8-9 on a tues eve, so I block that out). Finally I'm left with the free time which I've not filled up with other essentials. This I divide up into specific areas for that day (ie so rather than just saying I'm dedicating Wednesday to Neuro, I'll say right I'm doing Neuro, specifically Parkinson's disease, or stroke etc) so it's more bite size and I know exactly what I'm having to tackle that day.

    If its a particularly difficult subject, I'll do an hour, swap to something else then return to that difficult subject.

    Also, don't forget to factor in eating and breaks!
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
