I'm in year 11, I do pretty well at school (i get average 7s in all my subjects except english) ....i'm aiming for all 8s and 9s
and i have no idea how to start revising. I've tried making many timetables, but they never work and i end up wasting weeks of "revising" where in the end i've made no progress at all
I've realised making notes doesn't really work for me, they seem pointless, as our revision guides already summarise content....so making notes doesn't make a difference, as I eventually have to memorise that too.
Right now whenever I try to "revise", at the end of the day I feel like I've made no progress at all

I'd really appreciate any advice or tips
- how long should i spend for each subject?
- how many subjects should i revise in a day?
-how much should i cover for each subject? (like a whole topic or half topic?)

hi. There is a rule called the 8,8,8 rule (or something like that), where you spent 8 hours sleeping, 8 hours working and then 8 hours doing everything else. It could help you organise your time? For example, you could spend two hours on each subject a day, covering 4 subjects. But I would put them into hour blocks so like an hour of English, then an hour of maths for example.
For revision, I would recommend making flashcards, blurting (where you write down everything you can remember about a certain topic and then fill in the caps using your notes), and past paper questions. I've linked a document that has lots of science questions.
Hope this helps
