I am in Year 12 studying AS Maths (Edexcel, C1, C2 and D1), Physics (OCR), Computer Science (OCR) and Psychology (AQA). I'm finding it hard to knuckle down and study, and my procrastination is worse than ever!

How many hours should i really be putting in a week/day? I really want to devise a timetable, but don't want to overwork myself because i really do enjoy sleep, gaming and generally not doing much...

Any tips on how to devise this timetable would be great, such as what time slots are best, breaks etc, as im hoping to make it tonight! Any help is greatly appreciated!

Don't work on time, work on content.

Tell yourself, okay, today I'm going to do this amount, if you don't do it, you don't get freedom.

I advise doing a Unit 1 Physics paper and C1 paper once a fortnight so you don't actually have to revise it come the exam season because you'll already know it.

Can't speak for Psych or Comps, but Physics, do the questions in the book (you know the 2002, 1990 exam style ones) after every module.

Exams are getting harder, and those will give you a better standing of what you need more revision on.

But don't do more than 3-4 hours revision during the weekday.

On the weekend, mix it up a little so you don't get bored (2 hours is enough to articulate your skills.) and add your fun in between sessions.

Don't look at the time, look at what you NEED to achieve before today or tomorrow etc.

Agree with the above post for physics and maths.
For psychology, look towards consolidating and really understanding twelve marker plans. It's easier to just make overly detailed plans and have your revision revolve around them. For my A in psychology AS, I just reread my notes every weekend for the first few months, noting down things that I wasn't remembering at all etc.
Also, make sure you do a lot of past papers, especially focusing on research methods sections, as this is where I know many people stop easy marks.
