    I deleted it for GCSEs and it really did help me focus on my work. Social Media is addictive you're better off deleting/changing passwords and giving them to your parents etc whatever works. Do it now, don't waiting for A levels. (I got all mine back for the summer though haha) besides its all very well SAYING you will delete them for A levels, but will you really?

    Also my dad's a vet so I get completely put off being a vet haha good luck with it.
    Hope this helps xx

    Hi everyone,
    New here. I was wondering if I should delete Instagram/snapchat so I can focus on my gcse more. They are quite distracting. I have big aims to be a vetenary surgeon. Any advice? Thanks
    You don't need social media in life - it isn't necessary. You don't need a phone either - but that's a bit drastic.

    they really are though!They waste your time, they have nothing necessary in them, just get 1 like facebook but dont get the app on your phone. Therefore limiting the only use of it to your PC but tbh, cba with PC therefore you wont be tempted to procrastinate as much
    Its TSR that is the issue with procrastination
    Believe me - I know
    I hear you sister!

    Yes. They add absolutely nothing to your life
    I agree

    Yes definitely! Because a few hours on social media will definitely ruin your chances and because exams are only a few days away right!

    Work until 9 then do whatever the hell you want, time to relax is important so rather than removing your sources of relaxation just manage your time better so that you can work at a high intensity then relax properly.
    Best advice yet

    If it's gonna stop me from being a vet then I won't think twice about deleting it cos I REALLY want to become a vet.

    On a side note, why are you put off, is being a vet not really as portrayed

    If I just check it once before I go bed I think that would be fine? Because it's not like I'm wasting study time cos I wouldn't be studying anyway?!

    Has anyone failed GCSE's without using social media. I thought so, so don't delete it.

    You need to spend some time with your friends, not revising every day is the tip.

    These people are so stupid.
    Firstly, GCSEs mean literally nothing (No, i didnt fail mine. Did amazing actually). Secondly, its during A Level revision/exams periods that you shouldnt be using social media. In other words you're fine for the next 2 years, as long as you work hard.

    If Instagram and Snapchat are genuinely somehow preventing you from working, then yes, you should.

    Tbh GCSE's seem to mean a lot cos my older sister did decent and now she's struggle to get into sixth form so for me it's gonna mean a lot

    I agree but if you don't do well in GCSE's then you may not have a chance to do A-Levels. Whaat do you mean they're worthless :unsure:

    Won't matter because you can't delete TSR, the most distracting of all.

    I've deleted all my social media (except Facebook but I only use that so my mum can message me to come down for dinner :giggle:), however, I got the TSR community, so it's fine.
    This was the saddest thing I've ever read.

    You're still a person, if you delete any potential fun or relaxing activity, you'll burn out in days. Just use some self discipline and know when you need to stop and knuckle down
