Heres my time table

10am - 12pm - Economics
12pm - 1pm - geography
1pm - 2pm - bio
2pm - 4pm - maths

Now yesterday I ended up doing economics all the way till 1pm and geo all the way till 3pm. I couldn't compensate both maths and bio so I left its like that. One of the reasons why it took me long to finnish one chapter of economics is because I was experimenting active recall;
I read the chapter and answered the activities while reading and then I wrote the notes down in my own way and its takes an hour for me to be make my brain realise its revision time

I take a 5 minute break. So its not necessary an hour. The problem is that when I time myself I end up not finnishing a chapter especially if I study for 1 hour. I was thinking of doing 2 hours each subject but 8 hours per day would just kill me with boredom

Try instead of saying I'll do this subject for x hours and another subject for y hours, saying today I'm going to do these topics. For my revision 'timetable', I've got which bits of homework or past papers or revision I want to get finished each day, so that I know what to do but without the time restraints.

Timetables don't work for everyone .definitely doesn't work for me!However I perform perfectly fine in my exams. This is because I tend to revise what I want, when I want to.
If you can't stick to a timetable the best thing to do:
~Don't use one!!

Instead of revising against the clock . Choose maybe 3 or any number of subjects that you want to study, then take your time with each one, each day. Set yourself goals based how much you want to achieve or how far you want to make it through your notes or revision guide.

Works for me .Should. hopefully work for you!
Good luck In your exams
