Hi. Since next year for me is year 11, I believe that it is personally critical, for me to structure a timetable, but I'm just too torn apart to decide how to structure it. For e.g, I want to make notes topic by topic for subjects such as chemistry, maths or english lang/lit. The problem is I want to use a revision technique that will take a chunk of my timetable, but I don't know how to fit it in. The two techniques are past papers and spaced repetition. I can't lie my performance was poor (year 10), especially since lockdown. So these are the subjects/topics I have yet to complete (these also include year 10) Biology P1,P2. Chemistry P1. English Literature, Macbeth, Inspector Calls, Christmas Carol. English Language P1. Maths P1 and P2. Geography P1. Russian (yes lol). Sociology, Key concepts, research methods and the family. These are the topics I would set in my timetable, however keeping fact that for all of this, I want to use two main techniques spaced repetition and past papers. For e.g, 1 week can accommodate for spaced repetition. Obviously with this technique, I want to set it out as a long-term timetable until the end of Year 11.

First I'd say you need to prioritise subjects - which ones are you doing best at and which ones are you doing worse at. Dedicate more time/sessions/whatever to those. As for the blocking - I'd say it's personal preference. Personally, I would do sessions in the sense where I'd do note taking, and then do past paper questions on SPECIFICALLY that topic using physics and maths tutor for science and maths. I would've made that one session, and then done your revision one week, paper the next week for something essay based like English or Business. Honestly, at the beginning of year 11, you should be able to keep your revision quite light if you've got relatively good memory retention, and then gradually ramp it up closer to the actual exams. Also just remember to keep the timetable fluid - if you're finding yourself lagging in something, don't be scared to spend a little more time with it!
