    In 6 weeks my french GCSE and history GCSE is coming up.I am struggling to study i do plenty of vocab for hours and hours for french online but I cannot get myself to do history because I don't really know how I could plan exam questions but I don't find it very effective and pretty boring.How can I study efficiently i am not distracted by computers etc it is just I find it so boring I would prefer to sit on the couch doing nothing all day because I feel so unmotivated a reward is so far away I feel liek this half term is quite boring my parents are busy with work and I have no friends or family to spend time with.

    Knowing the feeling of not getting the grade you need and failing is a great motivator.

    You need a reality check, so if you are expecting to do A levels and go to uni, then you need to start with your GCSE's. If you wnat to fail then carru on doing nothing for it, there will be plenty of others who will be working becayse they need the grade.

    Get past papers and do them on a regular basis so you get used to what they might ask. If you cnat answer the questions it will highlight what you dont know.
    If you dont know it go and learn it. keep going until you can answer questions with ease. You might also want to add some cariety by using flash cards and revising with a friend.

    the exam is on its way and will happen whether you are ready or not. imo 6 weeks will pass very quickly.
