    What are you doing to revise? Whatever it is, it can't be effective if you've been working that long with no result
    Condensing notes onto flashcards, doing packs of questions on topics you know you struggle with, doing past papers, teaching other people. In lessons, ask for help as much as possible. Watch videos, but keep pausing it and writing down key information. There are loads of other methods out there depending on your learning style
