How to stick to a revision timetable: well nobody can admit they're perfect at this one!

You just have to keep your mind on what you want to achieve at the other end of these torturous exams! You're only doing these for yourself remember! I know that if I don't do well in my exams I only have myself to blame for all those times I got distracted during the valuable time I had!

You'll be fine as long as you know what you want! Don't forget revision isn't all that counts towards getting a high grade! Make sure you eat healthy, keep hydrated and get plenty of sleep and excercise! Only then can you achieve the best possible score you can!

Good luck! :)

Urr... I am no master at sticking to timetables, but when you go off to do something non-timetable related, you should remind yourself about getting that grade that you want and how good yyou'd feel , all you need is stick to your work!

I do that because it is guilitly nudging all the time when I go off to do something else. My conscience says "Ahem, and what do you think you're doing?"

I normally Ignore it.

But you shouldn't. Your concience is aalways right.

I'm really bad at this. But this time I'm going to stick the timetable up where my parents can see it and ask them to bug me if they see me not doing stuff. For some subjects, I'm getting teachers to mark work (eg past papers) as well and that helps as it's another person expecting you to be working. Also these timetables just say 'Early AM, Late AM' etc which is quite vague but you have to set your own times (so Late AM for me is 10.30-12.30) so you know when you're late starting/early finishing. And yeah, rewards for doing well help.

hang it up everywhere around the house as soon as you get in from school get yourself a drink and a snack and look at the revision timetable you could have possibly hung in the kitchen, take all the books you need stick half hour on your phone use this website to go over info and before you go to bed go over 1 page of something you really dont get and apparently your brain goes over it while your sleeping and your wake up understanding! worked on my biology :) 

this is one of the problems i have to... unfortunately one of the hardest is willpower and if your a very social person that can be very hard but give the weekends a rest

This is the ultimate impossible task! we're human, and we're young people with live (; but just remind yourself what you're doing it for, and imagine opening your results and getting a pants grade! Get you're mum or something to prompt you, and if you have similar time tables to your friends that always helps. Revise and stick to it AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE but (and this probably isn't the advice you're supposed to give) don't get too stressed if you miss an hour here or there! trust me I've seen the break downs happen and you don't want t go there! so long as you're organised, start early, and try as hard as possible, you'll be fine!

Well there's only a couple I know. One is what my teachers tell me to do is that to give the timetable to parents and they can check if I am actually revising and I'm doing the right one but it just never works. One main thing is to make it easy for you first. I have a whiteboard in front of my desk which is the only thing I can see when I sit on the chair. It has a grid which has my timetable and subjects etc but it includes my wanted grades, my 'happy' grades as I call them, exam dates, courseworks and homeworks. I have hourly boxes which pretty much allows for 10-20 mins breaks and I make sure I have sometime for myself at the end. I only make the table about a day or two ahead since things pop up during the course of the week. The whiteboard allows change and I write a reward at the end. Plus the grades in front of you should help motivate you; I know my brother writes what he thinks he's current grade is with the revision he's doing and it's quite funny seeing him panic seeing the level he's working at

Neither can i :/

One of my teachers told me to reward myself with something ((like chocolate :D)) and the end of each day when i stick to my timetable

.... i tired that, but i just ate the whole box of chocolate on the first day xD

But hopefully it'll work for you :D Hope this helped :)

i have no idea  ,but you could just ignore the timetable ,and start making notes on the subjcts you need help in, it seems less tedious and boring when at the end you make notes on the sujects you enjoy!!!

I revise when I feel like when revising and when I feel like I need a break etc. The only difficult part I find is actually starting like during my free periods I just want to hang out with my friends but yeah just do it. BTW if you're doing GCSE's, don't bother revising a whole lot for them like 2 hours a day or soemthing ridiculous like that. Try doing like 15 minutes or whatever you feel like, cos they're **** easy. Trust me :)
