Creating a Revision Timetable
Make a Revision Timetable A revision timetable should help you to: qmake realistic plans quse your time efficiently and effectively qassess your progress and - if necessary - amend plans accordingly. It's worth spending time on your timetable. You only need complete it once and when it is done, you're free to concentrate solely on the business of revision. You can produce a weekly or daily timetable. Alternatively you may prefer notes in a diary, or a wall chart covering the entire period.
Creating your Timetable The steps 1. Draw up a blank timetable with days and dates clearly marked. 2. Fill in your timetable marking off - Your exams - Any lectures/revision sessions - Activities that are fixed (eg. Music/swimming lessons) - Make sure you plan in time off. You can allocate time for your favourite programmes, times to socialise- just make sure you have a balance of time off and sufficient revision time. 3. Decide on the periods you’ll use for revision and mark them in. 4. Check that the timetable looks realistic. Are the revision periods of a reasonable length? Are they at times of day when you study effectively? 5. Allocate your major revision topics to the periods you’ve marked.
