    Hi i am so nervous about this im just thinking that it may completely fall apart ( my study leave timetable). This is because i have made revision timetables in the past and never can stick to them. The other thing is that on a normal day I only do an hours revision for one subject per day. All my friends are doing so much more and i feel completely inadequate. The obvious answer to my problem would be do more but I feel like i cannot do anymore when i have done an hour. I'm just thinking will it be easier in study leave because i am not doing 5 hrs a day at school constantly. Do you think this will help my revision or hinder. I would love anyone's advice who has been through study leave

    You might want to try some of the revision methods I talk about in this post: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3904381
    Have you ever heard of the pomodoro technique? Rather than revising in massive chunks and getting bored and distracted, you do 25 minute slots of revision with no distractions, and a 5 minute break after each one. After doing this 4 times you take a 20 minute break, and then repeat. 25 minutes is supposed to be the optimum time for your brain to concentrate
