    Changes every single day!

    If I find myself on the laptop on a particular day, no revision will occur!

    Has anyone else hardly started revising yet? I have 4 exams on the 5th, 10th, 11th and 17th and just can't get into revision!. I'll sit with a book in front of me for hours and just stare into space so I only end up reading a page. Like yesterday, I took a Biology revision guide, a bottle of water, pen and paper to a field for 3 hours, and read a page and a half! I just have no motivation!
    Is it just me?

    Was like that a few weeks ago but my concentration boosts a lot when i realise exams are super close, i think of it like this if i try really hard and do bad i can say i gave it my all but if i didn't revise as much as i could id feel like crap after the exam

    Preferably I'd like to be doing 12-13 hours a day now that I'm on standdown, but I'm doing more like 7 hours with procrastination sessions in between Usually I manage to do more hours revising when I'm doing past papers than when I'm writing notes though because I find past papers fun. (I have 13 exams)
    Why do you have so many exams? My school doesn't even let us have that many in one exam series.

    There are a few resits, I'm doing 4 subjects (Maths, F.Maths, Chem and Physics) and I've self-studied some Statistics and Mechanics units.

    Why wouldn't your school let you have that many? 13 exams isn't exactly a lot if you're doing all exam based subjects :confused:

    We are only allowed one re-sit per subject so I dont think we could even reach that many as we take exams in both june and january.

    Same. I had one last Friday which I barely revised for and I thought that that would kick me up the arse for my next one on the 10th, it hasn't. Even though I know I need to do a lot of work to get the grades for my uni I just think I've just got to the point where I'm just really fed up of A-levels. Hopefully when my driving theory test is over and done with next week I'll be able to completely focus on revision.

    We take exams in Jan and June as well, although our school pretty much forces you to resit as much as possible or else they'll give teacher-parent discussions and you get evils from the head of sixth form lol

    I felt the same way a few weeks ago, try doing something creative like a mindmap or revision cards. That way it becomes less tedious and you can still effectively revise by flicking through revision cards for 10 minutes, a few times a day

    Also are you doing AQA BIOL5 on the 17th I'm dreading that exam! There's hardly any materials to revise form

    I've managed to do one past paper today, but still don't think that's enough for a whole day's work! I'm dreading all of my exams to be honest, and Biology's my most dreaded too! But no, It's OCR F214 on the 17th. I find for Biology, past papers work best, and then writing down the answers to the questions you don't understand and looking over them - at least that's what I've done in the past.
