    Hi ,I was wondering does anybody have a full schedule timetable where they write when they're going to eat,watch TV,revise etc. if so how well does it work for you? How do you stick to it?

    I'm a resit student and I messed up my alevels last year due to being inconsistent and unproductive .So far procrastination has really got me.I was doing ok before Christmas but I picked too many hours at work before and christmas ,revision went out the window and i haven't done any productive revision since the start of december .I was looking at the calendar and realised I've got 17weeks till my first exam (which I still haven't made notes on and have 100% forgot the content of) .Ive decided on a full schedule timetable,where I'll timetable ALL my activities .Fingers crossed I'll stick to it im falling behind :'(

    i don't give myself a full schedule timetable - i give myself lists i've always loved lists , but they literally got me through my A levels and are helping me so much at uni

    i have a planner , and i write all of my work down in it and order it based on what needs to be done the soonest because it's in the soonest - that means i can clearly see how far ahead/behind i am , and what i need to get done before what date

    for example , i had loads of work on monday this week , but i worked through it and now i can see i'll be free until wednesday if i did no more work , so i've just watched two hours of gossip girl

    I can't follow lists to save my life.
    I'm a very panicky person and always think I've got plenty of time when in theory ive got ZERO time left,when I realise that I panic even more and that's when it all goes wrong .i'll try a full schedule timetable for the next 2weeks and see how it goes!
