      I break the day into three blocks of 3 to 4 hours, pick two blocks every day to vary my free time and try and get three or four subjects done per day with one oral subject everyday.

      Monday 21st March:

      English (studied poetry and studied film / play) (pick 1 poem which has multiple themes that you know can fit into almost any exam question. Go through your exam papers. List the exam paper year (2011, 2010 etc) and then mark with a tick that the poem you are choosing fits into the exam question) (20 mins)

      Science (study Biology by practicing exam questions. I can give you a sample paper if you want only on Biology.) (Time varies by the quantity of time you complete this paper and then, you have your study of Biology done!)

      Tuesday 22nd March:

      French (study 2 different vocabulary topic lists) (for example, shops & buildings, numbers etc) (you can choose these from my thread Vocabulary, Grammar and Notes in the French forum if you want to) (After you try to learn, then test yourself by either covering the French or English translation or write out the translation (either English or French) and then you have to translate into the other language) (time varies again)

      Business (study Banking, Borrowing, Saving & Investing and Making Payments) (again I can give you exam questions if you want me to) (time varies again)

      Wednesday 23rd March:

      Geography (study The Earth (formation of earthquakes, volcanoes, fold mountains and examples of each) (I can give you exam questions!!) (time varies but it should be around 30-40 mins)

      Irish (study phrases from your aistí nó scéalaí) (do not learn them fully!!) (25 mins)

      Thursday 24th March:

      You don't need to study everything during the Easter holidays. You can continue your study during school weeks or the weekends. If you are very confident in any of these sections of subjects, then ask me (or you can change it yourself) to change it to a different thing in the subject for you to learn. I can give you exam questions on any of the things above, I don't know why I just said them in random subjects.

      Sarah2014

      thanks so much. I was wondering like I try to study when im home after school but homework takes up a lot of time and then im so tired. I haven't studied properly in ages and don't know where to begin but the timetable helped thanks.

    10. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      It's no problem whatsoever. Any of the things I said you want?

    11. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      For CSPE, it's just a matter of practicing the exam questions and all you study for is section 1.

    12. avatar image

      Sarah2014

      well I know you gave notes on the climate etc for geo but I still don't understand it and my teacher wont explain it to me. is there ascending/descending questions specifically asked in the jc? also any industrial revolutions qs?

    13. avatar image

      Sarah2014

      also do you have the biology paper?

    14. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Here's past questions on The Industrial Revolution (all HL)

      is that all that ever came up on the ind rev?

    17. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Here's Biology. It may seem like a long paper but that's because it features all chapters and is exactly laid out like the actual Science paper, except Chemistry and Physics are replaced by more Biology questions.

      attachment Exam (1).pdf

      SryanBruen

      Yep of most recent ones since like 2008 / 09. I didn't add more people in history because they're the exact same, a factory owner.

    19. avatar image

      Sarah2014

      thanks so much is there any chemistry or physics ones of that

    20. avatar image

      Sarah2014

      ok do you know what the most important points are about the ind rev because its a long chap in my book of unnecessary info

    21. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Here's Chemistry

      thanks so do these questions cover the whole course

    24. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      The Industrial Revolution things to know

      - Factory Acts (definition) and two examples

      - Two serious problems they faced in Urban Britain

      - Three inventions during the Industrial Revolution

      - Two reasons why the revolution began in Britain

      - Three results of the revolution

      - Three causes of the revolution

      - James Hargreaves (what did he contribute to the revolution?)

      - People in history: A factory owner

    25. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Yes, there isn't one chapter left out.

    26. avatar image

      Sarah2014

      thanks very much

    27. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      By ascending / descending questions, do you mean like "ascending air" or "descending air"?

    28. avatar image

      Sarah2014

      yes

    29. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Here's weather (ascending and descending air came up on a short question)

      Aoibhin.

      hi, how did you plan your timetable? i don't have one and I think thats why I never get done what in my head i've planned to do?

      !

    32. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Aoibhin divide your time up into 2 subjects each day on a particular topic in that subject. This is so that you do not get stressed out totally. Some days if you think you're available or confident etc, then why don't you do another subject and a topic of that subject? I put only 1 subject on the weekend days during the first weekend because it's Easter.

      Thank you so much! Made my life alot easier.

      SryanBruen

      What, you know how to make your timetable now?

    35. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      How is revision going for ya Sarah?

      sophie544

      @SyranBruen do you have any jc higher level project maths notes by any chance on area and volume, trigonometry and geometry thanks

    37. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Perimeter, Area and Volume

      Perimeter of a square = Add up all four sides

      Area of a square = Length x Width. Area must also be in squared form. So if it's something like cm2 (centimetre squared), it's area.

      Area of a triangle = 1/2 (Half) x Base x Height.

      Perimeter of a triangle = Add up all three sides.

      *You must know these formulae as they are not in the tables book.

      Remember these conversions of units

      1 cm = 10 mm

      1 m = 100 cm

      1 km = 1000 m

      *Also remember that some questions combine different units of measurement. And though you don't have to, it is advised to convert the values all into one unit of measurement because it makes things easier.

      π (Pi) is a ratio of the circumference of any circle to its diameter.

      In the exam, you may be told to take pi as a particular value like 22/7 or 3.14. If you are not given one of these values or not told to leave it in terms of pi, then you must use the value given by the calculator.

      If you're not asked to round your values, you're better off not doing so.

      Volume is the space occupied by a solid.

      The difference between volume and area is that Area is measured in squared units whilst Volume is measured in cubic units. This means that the output (value) in Volume will be something cubed (like cm3) (centimetres cubed). You have to know this for the exam also as it is not in the tables book.

      Capacity measurements - you must know these also

      1 L (litre) = 1,000 cm3

      1 L = 1,000 mm

      *To convert litres to cm3, you multiply the litres by 1,000. (Notice the above example ^)

      Volume of a rectangular solid = Length x Base x Height

      Surface Area of a rectangular solid = 2 (Length x Base) + 2 (Length x Height) + 2 (Base x Height)

      Volume of a cube = Length cubed (so L x L x L)

      Surface Area of a cube = 6 x Length squared (so 6 x (L x L)

      *You must know these formulae also

      1cm2 = 10 x 10 = 100 mm2

      1cm3 = 10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000 mm3

      ^ This conversion came up in a past question and it was a huge problem among many students taking the paper.

      Volume of a prism = Area of cross-section x Length

      ^ This formula is in the tables book

      Remember that the cross-section of a triangular prism is the smaller triangle to each side (it will show one on a question if you get one).

      For formulae of cylinders, cones and spheres, you do not need to know or learn because they are in the tables book. However, remember that you could be asked for the volume of a HEMISPHERE. This is not in the tables book. But remember that a hemisphere is half a sphere so you half the formula!

      Here's the hemisphere formula anyway:

      Volume = 2/3 (instead of 4/3) x π x r3 (radius cubed).

      *If you're given a diameter (full line) on a cylinder, sphere or cone, remember to half it to get the radius.

      If you're missing one of the figures for the formula of volume or curved surface area such as the height, then fill in the figures you have into your formula and put the missing value on its own. So for example,

      Volume = L x B x H

      Volume = 2 x 4 x H

      -2 = 4 x H

      -2 / 4 = H

      -0.5 = H

      ^ Bad example because of the output I got but you get the point?

      Then you fill in that missing value to your formula and then you can find out the volume.

      I will put up more notes soon.
