    SO basically you know how to revise efficiently its recommended you create a revision timetable but all throughout my GCSES my attempt to make and follow a revision timetable have drastically failed. Even now , I'm currently an As student , i have tried and tried again to make a revision timetable and stick to it but I JUST CANT stick to it.

    However its not my lack of motivation its just that everything one way or another comes in the way. For example a major test coming up during the week meaning i have to prioritize that subject,

    Does anyone else have this problem? and if so how have you guys overcome it ?
    I'm open to all suggestions and thank you in advance.

    I have a academic friend that basically forces me to sit down and do revision, we tend to not follow a revision timetable but we dedicate so many hours a week so that its flexible. Also we spend a lot of time in the library

    I never used a revision timetable. I made one, because my tutor forced me too, but I threw it away the second it was out of his sight.

    It's much easier, imo, to get home and think "right, I'm going to finish x homework, and if I don't have the vague sense that I want to die after that, I'm going to make a poster about x topic". Goal-based revision always beats time-based revision.

    Yeah! That's what I've been trying to do so far and it's actually working
