Did 3 hours of Philosophy and 2 and a half hours of Maths.

This is awesome for me as I haven't been revising properly like I should have been..

Its a good feeling afterwards, finally deactivated the Facebook too, waay to much of a distraction. Leechblock for other time wasting websites.

Hope everyone is good.

Today I am to do:
- 3 hours of Maths
- 3 hours of AS Philosophy

Aiming for 6 hours and also to go to a gym class at 6.30pm.

The joys of being able to revise at home, lots of my friends are complaining about not being let off for study leave lol :teehee:, hope everyones good, if your feeling somewhat demotivated then as someone said earlier just think about all the time you'll have in summer to do what you want and to procrastinate lol without feeling guilty.

To those who have left revision a little late, I can say i'm in a slightly similar situation with one of my exams which is AS Philosophy, I have 15 days til my AS Philosophy exam, luckily a few months ago I did type the majority of my notes up for the subject (with the rest have a month onwards to revise), tips wise, i'm just going through my typed notes with a highlighter and a pencil, highlighting the key things and annotating with the pencil key points down the sides of the notes aswell as re reading the notes and i'm trying to do 1 practice essay a day mininum.

Its not impossible YOU can do it, even if you have to take away distractions like social networks: FB etc and TSR lol.

I recommend Leechblock too for the Firefox users, which blocks websites for certain periods, I find if I don't block timewasting websites then I just procrastinate too much, one minute is 1pm then the next minute is 3pm not kidding lol.

All the best to everyone. We can do this!!

You aren't going to be revising at your full potential at this time of the evening, so I'd recommend going to the cinema. It'll allow you to relax and take your mind off exams for a few hours!

Neither are the people in your statement.

And no TSR isn't something to go by. :rolleyes:

You are kind of generalising though.

What do you mean by not revising at full potential at this time? Is there something wrong with revising after 6-7PM?

OT:
Also only done 1.5 hours today, was tired as hell.

Monday: 0 hours
Tuesday: 0 hours
Wednesday: 1.5

Countdown till exam: 12 days
