    I don't seem to know where to start w making one and i can never follow timetables but never the less I know I need to make some sort of plan as I always end up spending too much time on my art based subject instead of English and history so yeah any ideas, the more unorthodox the better , will be greatly appreciated

    I always found myself missing the times I'd set and giving up on the plan entirely. Instead I decided to write a list of everything I wanted to do and the time I wanted to spend on it. Then, I'd pick one and set the timer for it. That way, I knew how long I could afford to spend (if plans changed) and could pick and choose when to do things if they did change.

    If that sounds helpful and you need more info, just give me a shout

    I have an a5 book I write down all the tasks I want to complete in a week and highlight them when I'm done - it really helps me be productive and I can see how much I've focused on each subject

    As well as writing lists as suggested above I used the revision timetable planner then made an excel sheet with each week just having a list of what subjects so that I can do them in any order and don’t need to worry about doing them at the exact same time as planned. This helps me to focus on all subjects a bit more equally

Size:  37.5 KB as you can see the table itself doesn’t have much detail it’s just a summary of what the timetable says I need to do for the week. Once I’ve done an hour (at least) for that subject I highlight the hour and jot down a brief summary of what I did during that hour
