Please review my revision plan for my gap year - 2025 entry

So I'm resitting A-level bio and Chem for the next cycle i.e. to go into uni in 2025. My plan is starting today from Monday - Friday I will begin my day with at least one hour at the gym then when I come home I will do 2 lessons of Biousing pomodoros then have a 15 min break after those 2 sessions and then 2 more lessons for chem so 4 lessons in total and about 4 hours of work in total giving me the rest of the day to spare. If I stick to this monday-friday according to my calculations I should have covered all the content by the end of August 2024. I will be working 12 hours a day on the weekends to make some money and to give me a break from revision. In October I will apply for MPharm to unis and prepare for interviews and do as many past paper questions as I can. In November I will work full time (12 hours 3 days a week) to make more money and focus on interview prep, past papers and recaps until exam season. Around December time I'll do slightly less revision i.e. instead of 4 days since I'll be working 3 days I'll do 3 days revision and have one whole day off to keep my mind fresh but when I get close to exam season I'll reduce my work hours and stick back to the original Monday to Friday revision routine. How does this sound is it realistic?

This plan sounds quite organised and structured well.
I would say you could consider if you'd be burnt out by sticking to the same routine over the months - unless you have strong willpower (you seem really capable!)

Furthermore, I believe this schedule sounds realistic enough; However, remember to take a break from this vigorous cycle now and then.
I wish you all the best, good luck! :smile:
