    I'm really struggling to revise the subjects I don't like as I don't have any interest in them and so no motivation.

    I cannot muster up the will power to revise the subjects I loathe the most: physics and maths.

    Any tips on how to make them bearable?

    Also, I'm revising Unit 3 sciences and wondered how people managed to memorise all of the content in a relatively short space of time...? I'm relying on cue cards stuck around my house but I was wondering if anyone else used a different method that worked?

    Thank you.

    You have to understand that everyone learns differently as I'm sure you know, but the way I memorise things is read my notes/textbook and quickly jot down important stuff on paper and then I just recycle the million sheets I get through in the day. I don't keep them as notes. It took me a while to discover I learn like this and it works for me but maybe not for others.

    I really like the CGP workbooks for sciences, and if you search 'extension science workbook' on amazon then you can get one that just covers the Unit 3 topics, they do different versions so you should be able to find one that matches you exam board. I find they really help to make sure you know the topics and pinpoint the bits you're not so sure about.

    Get off TSR and shut down computer would be a start.

    Get maths watch! It helps so much also get a CGP revision guide for physics or go on bitesize depending on your course, if you are doing triple science get the revision guide

    Thanks for all the advice

    Muchly appreciated!
