I am tried so many things, from posters, to flash cards and now just bullet pointing stuff. I get tired of trying to make my notes get smaller and smaller. That my time gets wasted on one subject when I have loads to do. How shall I balance my time revising for Maths and Chmistry? A really need A's in both of them.

Have you tried making a timetable? That could help you revise equally for each subject.

I have tried making a timetable and currently following it now. It's just that when I am struggling on something in chemistry I need full understanding of it inorder to move on. Like that time goes by and I don't have enough time for maths because it gets too late.

Have you got appropriate times on your timetable to study for each subject in depth? I've noticed that its better to wake up early and do work because then you get more work done. Thismay not be the case for you but it now works for me. Even on schooldays, you should try to wake up quite early, get some work done and then get ready for school. 

Hope this helps..

Oh, and if you really need the time you could try studying for a little while in your lunchbreak at school.

Or, if you have lunchtime clubs for the subjects you are struggling on, then go to those.

write your notes on postit notes and stick them on your wall.  I find that this really helps me to remember everything. I revised the whole of core chemistry, biology and physics this way and got A's. :)

Make a timetable and strictly stick to it.

Make a list of a range of fun revising methods and pick one from the list to do. This will give you variety in the work that you do.

Thank you for all the reply's and help. I am doing all those things, but I guess I need to carry on what I'm doing. Never know I might find it later on useful.
