    Haha :mmm: Fair enough- that's important too! I always enjoy a cheeky cheese on toast while revising. I feel that the amount of time it takes to make cheese on toast is the perfect time to be away from studying... it's not too long, but you feel like you get a good enough break

    The one thing bugging me about this post is the misspelling of 'stationery' but otherwise these are very useful tips

    I start with a list of everything I need to do. In total. So every section of notes I need to do, every past paper, every set of practice question. I then set an overexaggerated estimated time of completion for each. Then I pick the first few things/ most urgent, and do them for the next few days, seeing how much study or certain types I can bare a day. I then use this to create a very flexible, but technically strict, revision plan, from now until when it needs to get done. I account for days of week, free lessons, weekends, half terms etc, allowing me to be efficient. I then, if necessary, start to cut down from the total workload, so I don't over-do myself into a pit of boredom xD This involves skipping certain past papers (usually the older jan ones), and only doing every other question of a textbook for a section I find particularily easy.

    Other than that, I just revise. Which is clearly the main part that most people miss out

    I don't really use revision timetables as I find I don't really stick to them and that my timetable varies week to week depending on the amount of h/w I get,school events, etc. Whoever's like me and doesn't use a timetable shouldn't be worried/put off- just make sure you are wary of the amount of time you have left to revise, and do so in your own way that works!

    XD That's definitely what I do. Most of the time, I just eat the snacks though, and get no revision done... whoops

    I tend to read over the notes for my whole course (AS or A2) right before I go to bed at night. Then, I would do past papers in the day. Worked a charm, as it gave me a C in AS Computer Science with two weeks revision

    This year I will be revising a lot eralier however. See how much of a difference it can make.
