    Go through even more ppqs until you can pretty much do any question with ease and see what you did wrong in the 2017 exam to work on that.

    "I’ve always figured out that there 24 hours a day. You sleep six hours and have 18 hours left. Now, I know there are some of you out there that say well, wait a minute, I sleep eight hours or nine hours. Well, then, just sleep faster, I would recommend."

    There are so many flaws as you can't revise for 18 hours a day due to the day being filled with a lot of stuff you need to do
    Plus college takes up most of the day, for me anyway.

    I'm not saying revise 18 hours a day. I'm just showing you that you have more time in a day than you think. If you utilise your time effectively you achieve more than ever.

    A university student told me at york uni, he said the best thing to think is split your day up into three sections

    8 hours - sleep
    8 hours - revision
    8 hours - leisure

    that could be more effective don't ya think

    A day in life is too unpredictable to segment into 8 hours for sleep, then 8 hours of revision and so on. What about cooking, flat chores, daily errands and lectures?
    Me personally, the 80/20 rule is best for serious stuff and leisure time. So if you sleep for 8 hours, you now have 13 hours to be productive (not necessarily working or revision) and 3 hours to lollygag/procrastinate around.

    the 2017 papers were tough so thats why it is important be getting near to 100% on all the other past papers. Speak to your teachers and see what they say. I think you should ask them for harder questions
