Just wondering if anyone has had the chance to check out TSR's new Study Planner? It's a study calender that organises your academic life for you.

By telling it what you study, when your work is due and which subjects you'd like to prioritise, it then auto-generates a study schedule . It can also send you reminders when you're due to hand in work or start a study session.

Awesome , glad to hear it's useful. Which part do you find the most useful? And is there anything you found a little un-intuitive?

How's it looking? Key thing is to reduce the amount of study hours but be pretty brutal at the prioritisation stage--that way you should be able to focus on what's important :cool:

Trying to use the study planner, but the subject options are severely lacking. There should be an "Other" option for people on different courses so we can type in our own subject title.

It looks great for GCSEs and maybe most A-Levels... but not beyond. I thought this would be a nice look at my uni study time - to see how I am doing compared to the suggestions on the study planner, and where I can manage my time more efficiently with work as well as uni.

So for now, unless this planner is ever improved, I will stick to my Filofax and Google Calendar

Hmmm that's not good, we've had a few reports of this. Let me look into this. It's just been launched so there will be a few bugs, I'll keep you posted on this issue--thanks for letting me know

Hi Hanxa, thanks for this feedback. We know it's lacking for university level right now--it's primarily been rolled out for GCSE and A level as you've noticed . You can leave the subject area blank and add exams manually though--you don't need to click other. Hope this helps

Thanks for the feedback ggjono, we're just trying to replicate this bug now to get to the bottom of it. I'll update you when we've fixed it.

I tried leaving bits blank but it wouldn't save it. It would be great if there was a subject field where you just write in your subject (if it gets a uni update). That way we can add in course-specific modules. Also deadlines would be good to have to help prioritise study time at different times of the year.

Just some ideas. This would have been brilliant when I was doing my a levels...

I love it! However, would it be possible to add the FSMQ Additional Maths? (The one I'm doing) is examined by OCR, and at the moment, I just have it set as GCSE Maths with a different exam date. Thank you

It doesn't take 10 minutes breaks in to consideration, it doesn't spread out the times as I want to do 4 hours a day but not all in one go, how do I spread it out?

I actually find it so useLESS. I mean, when it generates, it organises things so BADLY. Like why would I want to do a whole day of Chem revision when I have an exam coming up for Psychology the next day??? For GCSE it was awesome because the sessions made a lot of sense like the placement and stuff (when I had a history exam, on the previous day it would show History revision sessions), but now it's a whole load of poo. And I CBA to individually place each study session. I wish it was like before, on getrevising.com, where the sessions where based on when your exams where (so if you had physics exam on lets say 20th of April, so then on the 19th of April the study planner would make the day dedicated to that exam. Now it doesn't for some reason, and it's become more complicated imo. Any ways to overcome this?

Moreover, when the exam is over for one subject, it will still have those subjects written (this happened with chem, so annoying) out, when I don't need to even do any revision for that damn subject because I've done the exam.

I think it's wonderful

Only thing I would say is that the times are dodgy to fill in - can't even put things in for 13:30 etc.

It's not very good. It's really useless if you want to do less than an hour at a time of study, which isn't recommended anyway!
