How to make an effective revision timetable? watch

    • Thread Starter


    So, I am currently Year 13 and I am looking at taking 15 exams in the summer after an AS year I was unhappy with. At AS I got BCC in Chemistry, Physics and Economics respectively. I also took A-Level Maths in 1 year, and if I were to cash in my grade I would get a D (B at AS). I have since dropped Economics but am looking at a lot of resits and exams to sit this year as I am potentially doing AS Further Maths.

    Therefore I have been advised to start revising next week which I have got to admit seems very slightly crazy in my eyes but I am having meetings with my tutor on Monday who needs to see my revision timetable.

    So now I need to come up with a long term revision timetable in a short space of time to last me 6 months at least (First exam is May 18th).

    Obviously I have made revision timetables in the past, but I really struggle to stick to them. Any advice

    1) On making a revision timetable
    2) Sticking to it!

    Thanks (:

    Prioritise all the hard stuff and dont waste time on the easy stuff.

    Make it realistic. I'd suggest you look at what free time you have (proper free time, factor in all the things you enjoy and the time you spend on homework etc.) and split that between your subjects, and perhaps include some time to review your revision from the week before - so you don't completely forget it all, making it a waste of time! Also, make it provisional so you can adjust it to suit your needs as you go along; your revision timetable should help, not hinder!
