Firstly find some time, (preferably a good few hours) in which you will free from distractions. Secondly, find the best place for you to revise. This may be your bedroom, Dining room, or may even be your College's library (Or High school/Uni). Personally, I find studying at the library is more productive as its quiet, and everyone else around you is working so its kind of motivating, at least for me. Thirdly, you'll want to have a plan of what you are going to be revising, and you need to be specific as possible. For instance, what theme/topic will you aim to cover? This is where a revision timetable may come in handy, however for me personally I just make a mental note in my head.

These 3 steps should be a good start for you to start revising, however if you give me some more details like what you're studying for (GCSE's, A Levels, Uni) then I may be able to help you more. If you're "busy schedule" is because you are working part time, I would strongly advise you ask to cut back on hours, and reinvest those hours into studying. And even if it isn't work, try and make your routine less busy, trust me it'll make all the difference in revision.

From my experience, GCSE's do not require a huge amount of revision. (I did mine around 2 years ago). You will have enough in lesson revision time, however when your around 2 months away from your GCSE's i would recommend taking a break from netball, ideally in teaching but if you can do both that would be great. Buy some revision guides and just read and work using those. My personal advice is that GCSE's dont really matter, take a look at your college requirements, then have a look at University GCSE requirements (if thats what you want to do). For the average person, meeting your requirements should be more than enough.

The thing is I find it hard to take note in a short amount of time, and it doesn't help the fact that I am dyslexic. I know what I want to do after my GCSEs, and that is either join the RAF or the Army. Yet I still need to teach netball because I am the only teacher for these students and I help them escape from their home life and i dont want to let then down.

Have a look at the RAF/Army websites, what GCSE requirements do they require? Could you go and do an apprenticeship with them after your GCSEs? If so, what do they want in terms of grades? As I said earlier, don't worry too much about revision for GCSE's, just be honest with yourself about what you really need to revise on and start with that. It's really nice you volunteer to teach netball, something you should be able to put into your CV/interviews etc. and talk about what skills it taught you. But yeah, have a look around Army/RAF websites for apprenticeships, I know the Army certainly do them however im unsure if they allow people straight from secondary school.

Maths/English Grade 5 should be achievable, yes you may have to revise a bit but not anything super, super hard. Go to your careers meeting and go into detail about what you want to be when you're older and ask any questions you have. Your careers adviser will be more knowledgeable than me. Good luck!
