    I've worked for 5 hours but I've had few breaks so it would be about 4 hours and 15 minutes ish
    How weird, I am doing organic chemistry as well and i am doing past papers on C3
    No clue what C3 means (IGCSE student here) but it's a weird coincidence haha

    Right, I see. CIE has a different style of writing the syllabus, therefore I don't know what "B2" or "C1" means, haha. I want to finish add maths today and move on to geography, which ironically is my favourite subject to revise.

    What are you revising right now/soon? I am having a pizza break rn.

    How many hours do you work on a weekday? What time do you start?

    Also, when are you going to start past papers? I don't wanna start too early as they're limited but when are you starting?

    Hope you've had a good day!

    My hours vary. I set the tasks I want to complete for the day and then do them.

    For the past two days, I have woken up at 9am and made a start after breakfast (usually 9:30am), which will probably be what I'm doing for the 2 weeks of break.

    I'm hopefully starting past papers on Monday after I've written the specifications

    Hope you've had a good day too. How is your revision coming along?

    What subject are you on now then?
    Btw...I found out what learner I am just from those notebooks
    For ages I have been doing revision cards with just lines of words and no pictures to revise, and I got fairly average results

    With the notebook, everything that I used diagrams for stayed in my memory.
    E.g, I couldn't remember much about the carbon cycle because I just wrote words

    I can remember almost everything about Darwin's theory of evolution via natural selection, just because i drew a picture of Darwin xD

    So again thanks alot, using your tactic helped me to find out what I should do. I think from now on I'm gonna do visual methods. Good luck man!
    I'm on Business right now, finished Biology a couple of hours ago (thank god)

    Yeah, for me they've been really useful so far. The colour-coding has helped immensely. Glad to hear you've found your way of learning, it should come in handy in the future!

    How's your revision coming along? What subject are you on currently?

    I am, and it's so weird! I am sad I lost last week since I didn't revise, but I'm feeling it this week (too bad I did it a bit late, haha!).Pizza break is needed so I will therefore eat and start revising at 8pm again (I am more efficient at night, around 11pm. That's why I stay up late to revise. Today was a good day though, and I did quite a lot in the morning!

    I hate being distracted haha

    Got my Biology write-up finished and halfway through my Business notes.

    Not starting past papers just yet but I can't wait. It will be much better than these notes haha

    What were the past papers on?

    I prefer morning starts haha. My brain is awake and it's light, so I feel I can work better

    It sounds like you've earned the break.

    I've changed my method a bit. Instead of doing 1 subject a day, im doing many each day; i think it helps me to recall more
