Giving myself a pep-talk

OK. By my count, I have 12 worksheets that I missed while I was away. And it would appear that next term starts on April 18. By my reckoning, that's 24 days between now and then, which averages out to two days per worksheet. I could do it either by reading through the relevant section(s) of notes one day and then attempting the worksheet the next day, or by having a day off one day, then putting in a long haul the next. I can do this. It doesn't matter if I don't get everything perfect. I'm really not fussed. At this point, all I really need is to be able to learn the content well enough to pass the exams at the end of the year and get onto the course for next year. I can definitely cover that much in three weeks. And even if I don't, it still isn't the end of the world. Being up to date on the qunatum mechanics is necessary, since one of next term's modules builds on it, but the maths, the sturctural properties and the classical fields, not so much. Obviously, try to get them all done, but if I'm a bit behind, then that's not the end of the world. It's all doable. I hope.

Good luck! I suggest making a colour coded revision timetable. ;)

I have a horrible suspicion I actually did that in my history 'A' Level... O.o

I guess the important question is "If you take every other day off, will you be able to keep track of the days and make yourself work the next day?"

I don't think attempting to work on catching up every single day is going to be helpful, as it will likely end up making you go "ugh, I want a day off!" I don't know. I'm not in your brain. I'm sure you can handle this, I'm just not sure what the best approach would be.

Just to throw more options in and make this more confusing to decide, what about doing 2 long days in a row, then a day off? This will still give you most of the benefits of taking breaks, as well as leaving you several days in a row off at the end. Plus the extra days at the end can serve as emergency work days if you don't manage to keep to the schedule once or twice.
