    Well today wasn't as productive as I planned. I devised my own timetable, and ridiculously scheduled around 10 hours of revision. I did 10 hours of revision but didn't achieve much!

    So I used the Get Revising revision timetable tool and created this:

    Would you say the times are okay?

    Is 6 hours over the Easter holidays and on weekends, Mondays and Thursdays (my days off) and 3 hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays good enough to get ABB+?

    Thanks, sorry for numerous threads regarding essentially the same thing...

    Feel free to share yours (we better live up to TSR's nerdy rep!)

    It depends on you. No-one can tell you how much revision is going to get you the grades, you're the one with the best idea. Personally, with 50+ days to go until exams, I know if I did any more than four hours a day I'd be completely burned out with zero motivation by the time exams actually come around.

    Quality > quantity, within reason, IMO. After a certain amount of time the information isn't going to stick in your head.

    Surely that timetable is well spaced out, with good breaks though? Not sure tbh

    Depends on how you implement it, I guess. Just do whatever you feel is working for you, and change it if it's not. Simple as that.

    Thanks my other timetable didn't go well today (10 hours with an hour and a half break was a ridiculous target looking back). Thanks

    You took my Computer Science Imperial Offer and now you will die.

    Only 4 hours of work a day? Are you kidding me - not sure if serious.

    Four hours a day was enough to get that offer you're apparently lacking.
