Study Timetable Template
We recommend studying for at least 6 weeks before your exams start. However you need to figure out how much study you need to do.
If you’re behind in your school work you should probably start studying today!

Instructions: How to complete your study timetable
Fill in when your exams are. Triple check the dates and times!
Fill in all other activities you have to do that aren’t study, e.g. school, dinner, study breaks, sports games, etc.
Specify on your timetable when (what time and day) you’re going to try some past exams. We suggest you have a look at one right at the beginning of your study so you know what type of questions you’ll be expected to answer.
Work backwards from the date of each exam to fill in when you’re going to study for each subject. Be specific about this – write down exactly what topics of each subject you’re going to study for when. This will make it impossible for you to run out of study time if you stick to your schedule.
When you think you’ve finished your timetable, check that it achieves all of the following: You’ve made time to study for every topic of every subject you have an exam for. You’ve allocated time to read over your study notes at least twice before the exam. You can’t rely on remembering everything from writing it down once in your study notes. You’ll need to read over everything at least twice, and probably re-write some of the really important bits.
It can be a good idea to leave the day before each exam to completing an entire past year’s exam and to reading over your study notes. You shouldn’t be learning anything new the day before an exam – you should only be going over what you’ve already studied.
