Making a revision timetable is the best way to start organising yourself. Without one, you’ll probably end up going over the subjects you find easiest or like the most. It’s really important to focus on some of your weaker subjects, prioritising those in your timetable.

A timetable will give you the chance to tick things off as you complete them and that will make you feel great!

  • How many subjects do you need to revise? Do you have the necessary books and resources for what you need to learn?
  • Reflect on what subjects you need to concentrate on the most.
  • Create a timetable and add the hardest subjects to the top, you’ll revise these earlier in the day when your concentration is at its highest.
  • Revise your favourite subjects later in the day. Because you like them, you’ll still be able to revise them even when you’re getting tired.

It’s best to break down your timetable into individual topics for each subject. Then, prioritise the topics you find hard. For example, if you find human biology easy but struggle with plant biology, start with human biology and move on to plant biology when you’re starting to struggle to concentrate.

Your timetable should cover the weeks and months ahead. It may not be possible to plan everything in one go, but coming up with one ‘master plan’ will provide a clear path forward.

Once you’ve finished planning, print out your timetable and photocopy it a few times. Stick to it but don’t be afraid to make amendments and changes if you feel you need to, so long as you’re still working through everything methodically.
