    I'm currently revision for my exams in a way which I haven't seen many other people do; I'm taking it one module at a time. For example, I will spend 4 days revising the first module of Physics, then move on to the first module of Biology for 4 days, etc etc.

    Opinions on this? Is it more effective than having a timetable, and revising a different subject every day? I simply feel like I would forget what I had revised next time I came back to it but I'm not entirely sure. Any help would be appreciated!

    At this point I think this is a good way to do it as you can make revision techniques for a whole module but as it gets closer to the exams I would stop doing this and revise everything. If you are worried about it then do some questions from another subject each night for half and hour and the rest of time on what else you want to do.
    An advantage of doing it the other way means you aren't just revising what you want but revising everything.

    Thank you! I've started doing two subjects per day instead, so that I know I'll be able to revise everything, and I'm going to try revising a different subject every day for a while and see how it goes. If that doesn't work, I'll just change back to how I used to do it.
