You can also use this method when planning out your entire course plan - divide all the topics into different sections based on their difficulty level, making them easier/harder depending on whether they require more work.

Creating a timetable will help keep you on track and ensure that you have time for rest, relaxation, and time with friends and family. It is helpful to write down everything from when your classes begin until the end, so there are no surprises during the exam period.

But if you have already factored in a while making your study plan, you will be able to stay on schedule and motivated. 

Remember, consistency is the key to success. Neglecting your study even for a day can derail your entire schedule. It will also leave you demotivated. So, be consistent.
