I'm planning to self-study A2 Physics (and AS unit 2), A2 Maths and A level Further Maths from September through May. I'm sitting for the international board, so I will give C3, C4, FP1, S1 and Physics AS unit 2 on January.
The following is my routine, I plan to study 6 hours everyday. Please do ask if you are confused about my routine and any advice would be appreciated!
Physics:
Time: 6 months + 2 months for qp
2 hours everyday
Per month:
Sept-Dec: U2 - 2 chapters - 30 minutes each
U4 - 1 chapter - 30 minutes each
U5 - 1 chapter - 30 minutes each
*Do U2 qp from Nov-Dec (replacing SAT and IELTS)
Jan-Feb: U4 - 2 chapters - 30 minutes each
U5 - 2 chapters - 30 minutes each
March-April: U4, U5, U6 qp
How I'll Study:
First two weeks -
• Read textbooks and watch Khan Academy & PHET animation
• Write notes
• Improve notes through P. Classroom, Dr. Phy A,
• Do practice problems - ISAAC Phy, Chapterwise
• If needed, improve notes after solving problems
Last two weeks -
• Watch MIT lectures
• Read Feynman notes
• Further improve on notes
• Do harder ISAAC problems + Chapterwise

Maths:
C34, FP1, FP2, FP3, M2, M3, S1, S2
Time: 6 months + 2 months for qp
4 hours everyday
Sept-Oct : C3, C4, FP1, S1
*Do above qp from Nov-Dec (replacing SAT and IELTS)
Nov-Jan: FP2, M2, S2
Feb: M3, FP3 + revision work
March-April: FP2, FP3, M2, M3, S2 qp
How I'll Study:
• Watch examsolutions and Khan Academy for the topic
• Solve textbook questions
• Solve chapterwise question paper
My grades are: 245/300 in Maths, and 134/180 in Physics (I didn't sit for unit 2)
Thanks in advance~

Looks alright to me. The faster you get onto past paper questions for maths the better imo

How are you doing with your studies?
How do you manage to divide time between the three subjects and how do you prioritize resources for physics please?
