Many students have lots of exams close together. It is useful to plan how much time you have to revise and make a revision timetable.

What’s a revision timetable?
Work out how much time you have to study each subject and complete a table or grid with the subjects you are going to study and when you are going to study them. Try to stick to your revision timetable to make sure you have enough time to do everything.

Don’t leave your revision until the last minute. Try to revise for each exam more than once to help you learn things well. Our long term memories remember more if we look at things more than once so look at your notes regularly.

Remember to take regular breaks while you study. Take a 15-minute break after every hour you study. This will help you concentrate during your study time.

Having a short break is very important when revising for exams.  Tell us what you do in your short breaks.

during my breaks, I drink water, go for a walk, stretch my body or sometimes listen to music.

Yes, short breaks are crucial during the intense preparation times before the exams.
- We can watch motivational videos such as Steve Job's "Connection the Dots" and many college commencement addresses by remarkable people who have achieved great feats in their life.
- We can also look in the internet for scenic locations around the Globe.
- We can also do some small exercises.

Thank you, I think that your idea of watching motivational videos during breaks is great! You get a motivational charge and after the break you continue a work even with more eagerness and passion than before.
