Hey so im in year 11 and i should think that now is the best time to start my revision.
Im really prepared to revise i made my timetable and bought cue cards and revision guides and a ring binder to put it all in...
I cant follow my timetable because of homework which takes forever to do and random activities which occur for example my family randomly decided to visit relatives one day and so on. I find it hard to follow a timetable as my life is not completely scheduled.
also ive read countless websites and threads about revision tips and strategies but my problem is getting into those strategies as im not used to revising - unless u count frantic cramming
so how do i get into routine of revising without it feeling wierd?

I would just prioritise on the topics you most need help with and if you miss a schedule, made up for it another time. I don't really like the idea of a schedule because it seems such a chore: make/play games, do it with friends ect and make it fun (well as fun as it can be)

If I know I am not going to have time on certain days to revise, I just try fit a few minutes in here and there. For example, if I had to go to a relative's house, I would bring a revision guide and read through a topic I am unfamiliar with or not quite sure on on the journey (if going by car). It is the little things like this that help. On weekends I tend to procrastinate a lot, and I mean a lot, but eventually I will get my revision out and do a couple of hours. Just try and do the best you can in the time you have each night, even if it is just 10-20 minutes on a subject per night. Don't feel as if it is something you have to do, but something you want to do to achieve the best grade you can possibly get!
