    So it's half term and I'm struggling with organising my notes.

    I'm a year 12 student who is currently doing Edexcel maths, Edexcel Physics and OCR salters Chemistry.

    I am struggling with implementing a system where I cover all my subjects to create revision notes and balancing it with ny homework. At the moment I am getting low marks since I end up rushing them in the last minute.

    I aspire to achieve three A*s at the moment. However, I am often described as over-ambitious. My intention is there, but admittedly I make unrealistic goals. For example, I get overwhelemed with homework, miss a revision session and make goals to cover a full topic in one day. I obviously rationalise my mistakes. I also waste time on tsr trolling people to vent out my frustrations. Sorry for my behaiviour, I'm so lonely I seek people's attention by offending them online.

    I would like to know how you sixth formers/college goers organise yourself. Note that I want those 3 A*s. Please share me your methods.

    I created a strict revision timetable. I planned out every hour of my day and slotted in all the different topics I had to learn, making sure all my subjects got equal time, and I stuck to it. Sure, it sucked at some points but it was worth it.

    I also used the specifications to create a checklist of everything I needed to know and this was to make sure I didn't miss any points out. I got A*AB.
