    I had a plan to do at least two hours today but spent that time on TSR...
    What shall I do now?
    You still have time!

    cleared 3 hours today and nearly done with AS Biology! C1 and C2 is piece of cake so I'll just be doing Solomon papers A to L for both and complete my final C4 chapter (I only have vectors left to self study and I am done self studying C3 and C4!) Make chemistry and economics notes and print past papers to do for the rest of half term.

    Learn the rest of Theme 1 economics then do half of theme 2, learn 2 modules of D1 maths, a little revision for C2 & S1, and learn how to manage essay writing time for politics and history. I'm already behind

    I am trying to condense my whole AS Biology subject into one half term, so far so good
    hooooww? I've been neglecting Biology for months now, I keep trying to avoid it cause it seems harder than all my other subjects/ requires the most effort and you actually have to think about it idk what to do

    Finished making all my notes and things in January This Feb I'm trying to run over the syllabus for all my subjects but I'lll only do past papers for maths and French. Next month I'll begin past papers for physics and computing and hopefully by the end of March I'd have gone over the syllabus at least twice.
    Now the hard part is the actual revision. I'm supposed to be doing five hours a day but I only managed two. I find revising late at night is really difficult for me and when I try to get up early in the morning I just fall asleep on my books and I'm constantly tired throughout the day :cry: what do?

    going to try out that "diffusion" technique where I put the textbook under my pillow and hopefully the knowledge will go from a region of high knowledge to a region with low knowledge.

    I'll revise during Easter. Now I'll get coursework done that is waaaay overdue, and just relax. I can't really revise for creative writing, English language is just knowing it (which I already do), so the only subject I need to revise for is English lit, and I have no clue how to do that

    I have mocks the week I go back to school so I'm taking the revision of my subjects stage by stage and doing a bit of them each day, trying to work about 6 hours a day. I'm basically completing notes and making flashcard type things because I did all of the stuff in my mocks earlier in the year so it's basically just rote learning the stuff. I do sciencey subjects luckily so this is pretty easy.

    Help. I haven't started anything and I have a heck load of coursework and exam revision. I keep telling myself that I have got all my offers from uni and I can't waste this opportunity, but I just don't feel motivated

    Yay! It's half term... :banana:
    Boo! Exams are looming... :unimpressed:

    Are you planning on starting revision now? Will you be getting your notes all organised...Or maybe you'll be putting a revision plan together?

    Alternatively are you seeing this as your last week of freedom before revision really kicks in?
    I would love to be able to revise, but there is not enough time with all the work that has to get done, essay after essay and research projects and my EPQ, not to mention university taster days and catching up with friends. I guess it will have to come later.

    I've been away for the weekend, but "luckily" most of my mates are away all week, leaving me with family and revision, so I'll choose the latter...

    Pretty much 4 hours today, and I've been making notes, which shouldn't take too long, then I'm going to murder as many past papers as the current number of trees in the world will allow:nopity:
    The most recent figure for the number of trees on Earth is 3,040,000,000,000. Apparently 1 tree makes 8,333.3 sheets of copy paper (I'm assuming that's an average). Most past papers that I do seem to have about 20 sides, so 10 pages.

    8333.3/10 = 833.33 past papers per tree.

    3,040,000,000,000 x 833.33 = 2.533x10^15 past papers, using all trees on Earth.

    This was good procrastination; thank you.
