Revision: timetables and planning

Film with GCSE and Nationals revision tips and advice, from exam survivors The Mind Set

How to get your revision plan right

  • Be realistic and plan time away from your work to avoid burn-out!
  • Make sure you study the hardest subjects first, and not at end of day when you are tired
  • Be focused: 20 minutes working followed by 10 minutes rest is a good starting point.
  • Planning helps you to balance your time so that you don’t spend all your time revising one subject
  • If you share your revision plan with friends or family then you are more likely to stick to it
  • Don’t worry about other students’ revision plans, everyone does it differently!
