Is it better to finish one subject at a time or make a revision time table?

I have my GCSEs in 2021. I have made notes on what I have done already for Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I now need to make flashcards for those subjects and make notes for English Literature. Should I use a revision time table, or finish making notes for one and then move on to the other and after doing all the notes make a revision time table? I want to do other subjects (Geography, Spanish, Economics, Art, Maths, English Language) but maybe they can wait until after I get the sciences and english lit notes done? (after finishing those notes I'm planning on doing practice questions)

I found it best to do a little bit of each subject often, in a time table, and then I didn't have to look over huge chunks of revision before I started doing practice papers. However, be aware that everyone revises differently and the way I revised for my GCSEs may not be the way that suits you.

It depends on your preference for revising. Both are reasonably fine for how much time you have before your GCSEs.

Hey confused127!

When I've had to revise for exams here at university, or when I was doing my GCSEs/A-Levels, I found that I would get bored of topics easily, so for me, it was best to switch subjects after a set period of time so it was always new and 'refreshing'(?) if that makes sense. But, as mentioned, it all depends on you and your learning style. If you are fine doing it the way you have, then keep at it!

Good luck with everything!
