To sixth formers: what is the secret to a good revision timetable?Watch
please share your tips on how to make a good revision timetable
Also, think about which subjects need priority and so need more hours put in each week.
I also have one hour everyday where I have nothing scheduled and I use this time to do a subject I feel I am weak on.
If you find it difficult to stick to your timetable, it may mean because you have scheduled too many 'study session's and too little breaks.
At the moment, TSR has an app that allows you to make your own study planner- so it may be a thought to use that- it takes into account your extra-curricular activities and your priorities.

You may find it helpful to do the same subjects you did earlier at school to go over notes or class work.
I find that making a list of what you wanna accomplish by the end of the day, and the rough times you want to do them, works better. Give yourself specific tasks and targets - make them useful but not overly ambitious. Rigid times don't work out if you run over/don't have enough to do/get bored really quickly. Being productive with your revision in 10 minutes is better than revising for an hour in a way that's not effective, so ensure you make the most of your time - breaks between your revision are a must for destressing and it'll help you in the long run.
To do lists all the way.
Saying that I failed my A levels
I also downloaded an app called Forest, which blocks out your phone for half an hour at a time. It's really good for breaking down your revision into the half-hour chunks, so you can work in short bursts of high concentration.
I do think making very rigid and complex timetables can be a form of procrastination, though.
I really dislike rigid timetables though as they do not tailor learning to how you're currently performing so I will change my timetable the day before to suit what I most need to study.
