    Ok i dont have a study plan either but you can use the study planners of others on this website to see which one best suits your lifestyle
    As for revision, your best bet is past papers and the reading of all your texts/content to ensure you understand the concepts
    For Modern: finish off making your notes for WWI and remember the dot points enough where you can answer essays and short answers on it as well as your second section whether it be personality studies/national, etc
    English: i assume you're getting tested on discovery, know the rubric inside out and make sure your related is adaptable to all sorts of potential questions and if is mod a/b/c then ensure you know the rubric to those too
    Senior Science: Like all sciences, past papers!!!! know the content and try to answer questions, even the hard ones
    Maths: same as science, past papers and revision so you know the content enough and is confident to answer the questions in the exam
    ( dont really about design sorry)
    Good Luck with your exams!! im going to die too haha
    I spend too much time on this website

    Okay,
    Since you only have three weeks, studying for all these subject will be very tight.
    So firstly plan by writing out what content you don’t know very well.
    One way you can do this is going through the dot points in the syllabus. And noting down what you know and don’t know.
    Another way is doing a past paper for each subject under exam conditions. And after you mark it, you may have some ideas as to what you know and what you don’t know.
    Secondly, finish of any incomplete notes that you will be using for your exam revision, by the next few days.
    By the way, I don’t know how you would study for history or design and tech cause I only did advance English, advanced maths and science (chem and bio) and legal
    For English, start by thoroughly understanding your texts and quotes and then do practise exams and do as many essays as possible, so you get the hang of what questions that might appear in the half yearlies. If you can, hand you essays and answers to someone like your teachers for feedback, so you can improve on them.
    For maths, revise your content and memorise and understand the formulas. And as usual do many practice papers. And while doing this, see what you get wrong and study that topic in more depth.
    For science, revise and consolidate your content and pracs. Then just start doing past papers. And as I said before, what ever you get wrong, focus on that topic a bit more.

    Other than revising, consolidating your content and doing many past papers, just believe in yourself.
    Good luck !!!!!
    I hope this helped ))))
