There are 71 days until my GCSEs start.
71 days. That’s 10 weeks. 10. WHAT?
I created a revision timetable at Christmas, but I haven’t been using it as much as I should have and I’m absolutely FREAKING OUT.
I’ve done some revision. History facts are actually going into my brain, and sociology and maths too, but science – ALL OF THEM – makes me feel a little sick. I’ve got my french coursework to remember, and SO MUCH to revise.
My revision timetable is as follows (yes, I’ll bore you, sorry).
Monday: Physics, RE
Wednesday: Chemistry, English
Friday: Biology, French
Saturday: Maths, Sociology
Sunday: Free day
Well ACTUALLY, Sunday isn’t a free day; it’s just unscheduled revision. Like if I’m feeling unconfident about a particular subject that day, or I just want to look over some things. I’m going to do one hour per subject, and on the days where I only have one, I can have another hour of revision for a subject I choose. If I had a lesson that day and I didn’t feel okay with the things we looked over, I’d use the extra hour to catch up. Tuesday and Thursday only have one subject because I’m really worried about music and history, because they’re the ones where I have to recall the most precise facts. WAHEY.
Is that okay? Am I doing enough? I just need to get the MOTIVATION, and that’s going to be tricky.
Intensive revision starts TOMORROW. GOD, I should have started sooner; I’m an idiot.
Sorry, I’m just panicking, and I want to blog about it because it will calm me down. Revision is sometimes tricky for me because I can’t do mindmaps or flash cards or writing things pretty or a page because I CAN’T SEE THEM UGH. So, revision usually means walking round my house, talking about the subject, or making wild gestures to myself to try and get the information in (like I did with the nervous system a few days ago).
I CAN DO THIS. I CAN.
