Revision Timetables - Tips

 It's been a while, I'm aware, but I've been working hard since Christmas, to get my head around preparing for my exams, and getting to a point where I have a clear plan for my Revision
 I have tried several times to create a Revision Timetable, but never felt that it worked, and there would always be a subject I would forget about, or forget what I had planned to do. 
 So, now, after a few different approaches, I have created a 2-week revision timetable, as it was unreasonable to attempt to fit everything into a week. 


1. Create a list of all your subjects - broken down into units/topics, if you like. For example, GCSE English, I have 4 separate areas to revise, Anthology Poetry, Much Ado About Nothing (Shakespeare), Pride and Prejudice, and An Inspector Calls. Each of these need their own space in my revision timetable, as each of them is an individual part in the exam paper. 
2. Plan in enough time for your weakest/weaker subjects. For me, this is maths. This is the one subject I am having to work incredibly hard at to ensure that I pass, and don't have to carry on studying maths in college. I have planned 3 revision sessions for maths every week, as well as going to extra maths support after school on a Tuesday. 
3. Plan around your other commitments! You absolutely do not have to stop participating in clubs/hobbies during exam season. However, if you do a lot of these activities, maybe take a break from some for the duration of revision/exams, but don't give them all up - or you'll find yourself going insane. 
4. Know exactly what you're doing that day, and how much time you have to use for revision! Much like No.3, it is important to use your time wisely. As you will see from the picture, I have highlighted in grey any after-school revision sessions that I attend, and what time I will be home, therefore, I was able to plan how much I was going to try to revise that evening at home (in blue). 
5. Relax! After a busy week at school, it is important to use your evening for relaxing as well as working. As you can see, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening, I have planned in time that is my own, to spend time with my family, watch Netflix, and just enjoy my weekend away from school. Relaxing is an important part for preparing for exams, just as important as revising, as however much you revise, you aren't going to get the results you want, if you are tired and stressed. 

Of course, it is up to you how you revise, everyone does it differently. However, revising whilst watching TV has been scientifically proved not to work, but, listening to music has been proved to work, if you like that, otherwise, silence works just as well too. :)
