How to make a very effective revision timetable for all your subjects: something you can stick to?

Hey, I devised myself a revision timetable, but I find it's not something I can stick to. It starts from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. However, my half an hour slots for subjects aren't nearly enough and I find myself getting distracted. Please help urgently. I have biology unit 2, physics unit 2, psychology unit 1, RE short course and geography unit 1 exams coming up in the summer. I'm doing GCSE by the way. Note, I also need time for like english, maths, art homework etc and watching TV and...blah blah.

If half an hour slots aren't enough bring them up to 40 minutes!

I get distracted to! The best way to cope with not being distracted is to make your parents/guardians confiscate your phones, iPods, etc. until your breaks in-between your subjects; which should be around 10 minutes.

Hope this helps! :)

Revision timetables ****. They're hard to stick to and pretty pointless overall - similar to homework timetables. Pretend revision is like Homework, do it when you feel like it, when you need to i.e. go revisie a subject now, and do a bit of it. Then revise that until you get bored of it or whatever, then revise another sibject or have a break. Don't limit yourself by time. Just do what you feel like.

Make a more realistic timetable,

40 minutes of revision, 20 minute break. It's a better way to focus your studies and 40 minutes isn't enough to get distracted.

Good luck!
