Is there any online revision planner anywhere. I remember using one on the BBC Bitesize to make a big revision timetable, but they seem to have removed it. I think they took it off because it didnt print properly, but I used to just screenshot it.
I'm asking because at the moment, I really cant be bothered to do anything - revision or homework. If I make a plan I might actually do something!
Any tips? I'll read through the forum, but its changed look since last year.
I've always just designed my own revision planner. Go on excel and fill out a week-by-week grid with the days along the top and time slots down the side. Next make a list of all the topics you need to revise in each subject and give each one an appropriate amount of slots. Make sure you leave time slots for hobbies/job/social.
Easy! And tailored to your specific needs.
Now all you need to do is stick to it.
Yeah cool, I'll make my own
Do people actualy do these? i thought that was just the school being a bit desperate to get us to revise....
hmmm crazy, i know i won't keep to it if i write it down. I just can't seem to be productive unless it's urgent.
Well i guess that explains the slightly rocky results. I'm thinking of applying to Oxford so need to get as high marks as possible. So far 9A*s 2As at GCSE and 100% in January maths module for AS.
lol, GCSEs are in the past... I got into LSE so i dont really mind about GCSEs anymore.
Hmmm...I find it hard to stick with a revision schedule. I tend to move on to a different subject / topic if I get bored of the one I'd be doing instead of focus on timeslots and what not. It's down to the individual at the end of the day. Whatever works best.
Frankly, revision planers are neither a joke nor something to think highly of. Basically, its just there to help those who need it organise their time effectively. Some people can organise themselves without the means of a diary or a timetable but others cannot so i wouldnt base the results of a person on whether they had a timetable because frankly timetables even though you might have one...doesnt mean your going to use it does it?
So even though you might have a timetable, once again its up to you to use it effectively and Alex L, congrats on the grades man!
