    It's never too late to do something, the issue is if that'll be enough to get you to where you need to be.

    Exam load is always a nightmare, too much pressure. My motivation comes from a combination of the fact that I find interest in the majority of the topics, it's just a load to learn for now (once the exams pass the pressure if off) and anticipation of the next step.

    There's always an element of learning for the sake of the exam unfortunately. At this point perhaps looking for "ideal" answers would be your best bet? Or learn the basic concepts and you should be able to apply them.

    Focus mainly on the first exams but occasionally look over the others! MAKE MIND-MAPS and draw funny pictures.

    Compose a motivational play-list and put it on shuffle. Make lots of tea and buy chocolate.

    Set your alarm early and get dressed go outside for a bit to get yourself wide awake then you will feel prepared to study! Write lists and check them off.

    Print off pictures associated with your goal or dreams or things that make you happy and blue-tack them to your walls. (For me pictures of Cambridge Uni)

    Just remember you are trying to show future employers the best of your ability; that you can get yourself to work solidly and work hard. They don't want someone who always puts things off. So just think of it as working hard now so you get the rewards later on in life!

    Hope this helps.

    Force yourself to just sit down and work and I reckon you'll be fine.
    Just force yourself. Doesn't matter if you don't feel like it/ feel like you're lacking motivation... just make yourself do it.

    Consistancy? Well I've just had Easter hols where I put this into action! And when school starts up again I will stay after school more because being in school puts my mind in the right mind-set to revise! I get stuff done in school.

    Is that what you mean by consistancy? Time?

    Just plan your evenings and then leave a gap at the end to watch telly or read or draw or whatever it is you enjoy. Alternate what you revise! Think about what your distractions are and if they are as important as your GCSE's.

    Just make a list of everything you need to know in each subject then do an hour on each every day after school! That should be good. Not even an hour if you're feeling stressed just make sure you at least do 20 mins.

    There is no set number of hours to give you to be honest; it is all about how you learn; like I always do sets of 20 min revision with breaks. Sometimes if I get into something I do an hour or so. DOn't know if that helps you at all.

    LOL at the bit in bold! Unfortunately I find it really difficult to work efficiently in school. Everyone is always distracting me, and the only thing I manage to focus on is doing past papers (but I usually end up making stupid mistakes). When I revise my notes, I have to read it out loud, and repeat them to myself until I remember them, and if I do that at school alone in the corner, I think it might look a bit worrying...

    I should revise but im a lazy bugger, At least there is 2 weeks between my first and my second exam - I have a feeling that the first one is going to be the hardest though.
