Revision season is here, and you really should be busy soaking up all that knowledge you've learnt over the past two years. However, it's not always that straightforward. Here are the five stages of revision you'll probably go through in the run up to exams...

<h2>Determination</h2>
You've bought that brand new stationery that you can't wait to use. You've tidied your desk, printed out your study planner and pinned it to your wall. You can't wait to get started and get those A*s you deserve!

<h2>Procrastination</h2>
Except... Studying is actually a bit boring. And a bit hard. You still have that determination, but maybe you should start after just one episode of that new netflix show? Your desk is already tidy, but how about you do that really important task of clearing out your...underwear drawer? Or maybe the back of your wardrobe?

<h2>Stress </h2>
And then suddenly, it's two weeks later and you've only gotten halfway through making a mind map. Oh my god! Time to start stressing out and actually do some work. Except when you try and start on one topic, you remember there's another topic that's more important. Actually no, better start on the MOST important one! Before you know it you've jumped around 10 topics and remembered nothing.

<h2>Dread</h2>
Great. A week before your exam. You've gotten into the swing of doing revision, but it's so slow. What's even the point? Still, you keep slogging on, and every now and then feel that wave of panic rising in your chest when you think of walking into your exam hall.

<h2>Acceptance</h2>
Looking through your revision cards, you realise you might have actually gotten the hang of this. Whilst testing yourself, you're actually getting most of the questions right! You might actually do well in this exam. Anyway, it's too late to do anything about it now anyway. May as well just get a good night's sleep and try your best.

Well, maybe.
