    Does anyone have any advice for managing time during GCSE's?
    Recently I've frequently been feeling like I'm running out of time and I've been really struggling to balance good sessions of revision with my outside activities, it's usually either one or the other. I just don't feel like there are enough hours in the day any longer and I'm not sure what to do.

    Instead of doing revision for a set amount of hours, do revision for a set amount of topics instead and see if that helps. For example:
    Instead of saying, "Today I'll do 3 hours of Maths Revision & Practice" do "Today I'll do 3 TOPICS of Maths Revision & Practice."
    Then you can work around your activities. 1 topic before you go to school, 1 topic in your free-time, 1 topic when you come home after school.
    Try doing that for all your subjects. Also, prioritize which ones you struggle most on and do those throughout the week, and set realistic goals for yourself. Then do the ones you find easy on the weekends.
    I hope this helps!

    I find timetabling really helpful. It means that I know I'm on track with the work, but also means that I can do activities / have down time and not feel guilty about it! I also find the morning a really good time to get a bit of extra work in. EVen if just 30 mins of going through flashcards / doing some testing, it can be super useful and make a big difference
