    How do you guys make your revision timetables?
    Well it depends on how you work best. You could either plan out everything up until the exams or make checklists and plan out specifically what you will do each day by making a list the night before.

    Decide which way you want to do it and I will try and help you

    yeah I completely agree - I do try to understand it rather than just memorise. the concepts which I have understood have stuck in my brain.

    good, although there are always some things you just need to know (facts) that you will have to memorise.

    I'm currently doing by day. So everyday I plant to do 1 page of a maths work book and P3, B3 & C3 revision each day as I have a test after Easter. As well as either German or French revision each day as I have paragraphs to learn for my FINAL writing assessments after easter!! 🎉

    I want to do English past question once or twice a week. And economics revision a few times a week. PRE (philosophy religion and ethics) past paper once a week and same with maths and French and German reading and listening papers.

    Okay you want to do loads That's great

    I'm also doing my final German writing (tomorrow) so I completely get what you mean.

    I would suggest that you look at how much free time you have or print out a blank plan of your week and pencil in any arrangements/plans you have so you know they are taken up.

    Then put in the stuff you mentioned above so you get it done and know if you have time. Plan your sessions so that they are a duration you can work with, such as 20 minutes (apart from the past papers ) and schedule breaks of 5-10 minutes and a few longer ones after a few sessions.

    Some crazy grades man - well done!
    But, how do you get such high marks in science lol
    I'm doing the exact same but I can barely scrape an A* if lucky...
    Physics is my strongest - I usually get A*s all the time, usually strong A*s.
    But, other than that it's tough for me .

    Sciences probably my biggest weakness, working through practice questions in revision guide and looking up and learning what I don't know
