    exams are getting closer, and I have 9 exams to study for:/

    Wondering if anyone has any tips on how to study for longer without losing the will to revise and fighting boredom and procrastination?

    My method is to do everything you are tempted to do other than revision then once you have done all those things, you find studying much more effective and enjoyable.

    Also turn off your internet, hide the computer, and set pepper spray traps for when you try and find it again.

    I use a free internet blocker thing called K9 web protection (aimed at parents) and even though I could easily enter the password and be unblocked from browsing the internet, it reminds me that I shouldn't be on the internet, because the darn internet distracts me from doing revision every time.
