Yea I have that problem as well, for the first week of half term I haven't really done anything so im double dosing and doing 2hr slots instead of 1hr. What i've found is if you do the actual revison for 1hr and then do a past paper in the 2nd hour, you pack in more revison without getting overly bored. But uhh i dunno, could be different for you.

I had that issue, I clocked up 8 hours. I knew I had to do something as well as the revision already scheduled for this week so yesterday and today I got up at 6 instead of 8:00 so I had two extra slots, I'll be doing that until thursday and I'll have made up my time. My advice: get up earlier (I wouldn't add it on at the end of the day because then you'll resent it and feel too tired to work properly) Hope you fit it in. Also don't stress if you've only dropped an hour or two because you can make that up just by adding an extra twenty minutes over 4 days or whatever :)**

I've had a really close wedding the first week, i gave myself a break yesterday.. but what im doing is i revise each topic and then do a past paper. So basically its roughly two hours on each topic.

Whilst your in bed, go through your notes so you remember what you've gone over and then in the morning at breakfast read over your notes and then go onto your next topic.

Act like your going to school.   So get up maybe at 9am and then finish around 3ish, thats 6hours.. and then you get the evening to read over your night etc.

I'm in this situation too and what I've done is wrote down what I want to know by when so that I actually use the revision time more efficiently

It's really not ideal to have waited this long to start revision but there is no point stressing out now because you need to be strategic and think of what you need to do next. I would recommend that every day after school you try to do 4 hours and this way you can get a lot of topics done.

Then at weekend try to do 8 hours or more (if you haven't started revision yet work out how many hours you would have done and then evenly distribute them).

Evenly space it out so you're doing topics which you find easy and ones which you find difficult. A good place to start is at the beginning of your specification and make a note of things you know and things which you have yet to learn.

In general revise without distractions, keep a bottle of water at your side to constantly hydrate yourself and perhaps a plate of fruit (healthy eating is key). Sleep early and wake up early to pack as much revision as possible. If you're still stuck then ask a teacher when you get back to school. We have a learning coach at our school who gives us revision tips so it may be a good idea to look into that.

Hope that helped. Good luck!

Bye ^_^

same with me , i have not done ANYTHING  since the beginning of the year and my exams are in a months time and i dont know ANYTHING ! . but i know its still not too late , I'm doing biology chemistry and maths AS and I'm really struggling with chemistry . . .  . i know nothing to be honest . but I'm gonna start from today . it was a big mistake not revising from the beginning of the year , but never too late to make it up . I'm starting from now and i think you should too . and by the way if you guys know any revision notes for chemistry edexcel AS can you please send me cuz i REALLY  need them . and if you are doing maths , its always available on youtube . just search ur exam board and lots of videos will come up , trust me , they are really helpful .
