    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 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

    I'll go look on amazon now.
    Muchly appreciated!
