Sorry it is a bit long. I have Asperger's syndrome. My mother is a doctor in London.
I am struggling heavily in A2. In AS I achieved EEU. I have made 24 timetables yet none have been working for me. The timetables are too rigid, which is ironic, as Aspies usually love rigidity. How can I make a proper timetable?
(Please answer, no ignoring) Can you help me with my timetable? Watch

(Moderators, in mentioning my health condition I'd personally like to ask that my posts for this thread aren't un-anonymised)
I have Asperger'sas well so I might be of some help... these are just some suggestions which may or may not be relevant:
What time of day do you usually work best at? Some people find they're more productive at certain times and these don't usually flow well with their hours of taught lessons or the time that then remains for independent study.
Or do you find that there are lots of events which make it hard to stick to the timetable (increased need to revise subject X, perhaps for an upcoming test/social activities/being asked to do things under short notice)?

Do your harder subjects earlier in the week so you can get them out of the way...you also have more time if theres a subject your particularly struggle with
make sure you factor in breaks!
Also if don't revise a class you had that day, i've done that before and found it was an overload on the subject

Different things work for different people. For me personally planning something like 4pm - 6pm Physics revision doesn't work, I need to set myself daily goals for what tasks I'll achieve e.g. produce notes for chapters 4-6, write essay plan for 3 topics etc. Then I give myself the flexibility to do those when I feel like it.
If possible it would probably be good for you to get some support at college with making your timetable, is there a disability advisor, mentor, student support worker etc that you know of? I'd ask them if they can sit down and work through it with you. If not ask your form tutor.
