    When I revise maths and look over all the different topics, I get so worried thinking about the fact that I've got to go over everything, do practise questions and fully understand each and every concept. I'm a bit of an overthinker and it probably is possible, but how are you managing maths revision? I really want a grade 7/8/9 and so I need to be able to completely understand everything, but looking over it all it just seems impossible. I also worry about time management, and how I'm going to balance it with every other subject.

    Can I see what your half term revision timetable looks like? I'm trying to formulate one of my own.

    i dont actually have a grided timetable because the way my brain works is if i have set times i cant do it.
    what i have done is created a list of every subject i need to revise, then what topics to revise in each subject, then how long i think each topic will take me. for example i have
    history- complete 16 marker booklet, 10 mins each page (50 mins max)
    - revise home front:
    -read through the chapter book and answer questions (1hour 50min max)
    -go back through book and reanswer the exam questions (30mins max)
    english- reread poems and notes (20mins max)
    - answer the homework questions on the poems (1hour 15mins)
    -go through language paper examiner report (15mins)
    -do a timed language paper (2hours)
    I then ordered each subject in numbers 1 to 7 from which exam i have first and then i calculated how long each day i need to spend on revision for the entire half term[it came to minimum 2hours a day if you're curious]

    this way i am able to be flexible and still get work done. good luck! xx
