    All of my teachers and my parents are telling me to start revision and make a revision timetable. Please can someone tell me where to start and how to make a revision timetable as I am kinda overwhelmed and very good at procrastinating. Thanks!

    Right so in this post there are 2 questions:
    1) How do i start revision?
    2) How do i create a revision timetable?
    So for this i have split this into two sections:
    1) Before starting to revise you need to know what you don't know, if that makes any kind of sense at all. To complete this i would complete a practise exam, the questions you score highly (Near or full marks) you can put in the "Know" Section. Where as those you score only a few or no marks then i would put these in the "Don't know" Section. Then i would start with the section ypou knew least and then build your way up to the nearly knew section (the questions you got almost all the marks on). I would keep revisitng previous topics even if you have already revised them because this will keep them in your memory.
    2) As far as a revision time table comes about the student room has a planner on it which can help with that, its under the "my study tools section". For this i would take out the time when you are at a club or taveling home from school. Then i would split my time up into managable sections there is no point writing "physics for 2 hours" because all the will in the world will not keep you revising effectivley for the full 2 hours. Personally i can last about 45 mins before my head feels like its going to explode. Your work time may be shorter or longer it just depends on how you learn.

    I also see from your post that you seem to have a tendency to procrastinate (a key skill for any student, its not just you). There is a section on staying focused in study time on the "Grow your grades" section on the website, best of luck Tom @THS.
