In terms of the study timetable, all those to-do's you wrote down, did you have a specific day to do each point or was there no signed day for it?Hi. Sorry for the late reply.
What I used to do was; every Sunday, I would write down a list of what I needed to do that week until the next Sunday. A list might look like this
- do a belonigng essay + give it to teacher
- read the great gatsby
- do all the Terry Lee questions on complex numbers
- do section 2 of Production of Materials + some questions
- Do section 2 and 3 of Space
- practical reports for all of the stuff so far
It might sound really corny, but it actually works. Initially, I left a lot of work for Sunday, but I gradually begun spacing the work out over the week. The advnatages of doing stuff this way are:
1. You can make sure that you spread your work equally across your subjects since it is planned out
2. You know what you have to do, rather than sitting at your desk and thinking, ok now I have to study. A lot of people do this, and I think that it can waste a lot of time
In terms of motivation, having weekly goals kept me motivated. As well as that, knowing that I wanted to get into medicine and I needed to do well to get in kept me fairly motivated
DOn't hesitate to ask if you have any more questions!!
