Dear All,

I have started revising for my GCE A level exams (CAIE Board). I have a total of 15 exams (5 Chemistry (Full), 4 Computer Science (Full), 2 English General Paper (AS), 2 Mathematics (A2), 2 Physics (A2)). I only have 2 months as my first exam is on 2nd May and last exam on 13th June.

I wanted to ask if someone could look over my schedule and maybe give me advice?

I still have to go to school till the 1st week of March and have my 3rd Term Exam from 18 to 30th March. I have 8 hours of school and 1-2 hours tuitions on weekdays and 2-4 hours tuition on weekends (Some Sundays I have Chem Lab or an hour).

I study 2 to 4 hours on weekdays and 4 to 8 hours on weekends. (Do note that I do pomodoro sessions of 50 minutes study with 10 minutes breaks).

On Saturdays I do full exam papers or topical questions for each exam so at least in 8 weeks I would have practiced some essays and get used to the process.

On Sundays I try studying less and spend time with my family.

Somedays I get stressed by the workload. I also don't have a good sleep schedule.

What are your thoughts/advice?

I think your current schedule if anything is very suitable, I did marginally less revision and was still able to achieve above what I desired. It may make sense to cut out an hour of studying on the weekdays for your own time to relax as it sounds like you’ve practically already filled the day - having no time to yourself will no doubt cause stress.

Out of interest, what courses are you currently studying?

Your timetable seems pretty much an ideal one for an A* student, but DO NOT NEGLECT YOUR HEALTH. Something I learned a few weeks ago... Self-care is important too!

I study from my class notes and chemrevise notes. Then solve a few past paper questions for that topic referring to the notes. If I still have confusion in that topic I will use chemguide. However I do not recommend to start studying from chemguide first.
