I would suggest that you create a timetable for the F1 exam, so that you can have a steady study schedule. Your schedule should assume that you will begin studying on the first Sunday of the month following the end of the last examinations. So, if you are preparing for the March 2017 exam, you should have started studying on the 01 January 2017. If you are studying for the June examination, you should begin studying on the 01 April 2017.

Let me know how you are progressing in your studies and if the timetable is working for you.
