    You're not the only one who can't revise. I always seem to find an excuse for avoiding it - lately it has been watching movies that are on the TV. Then in the night when it's all quiet and I'm about to go to bed I sit and think 'exams are coming up soon, I need to pull myself together and get loads of revision done tomorrow to make up for the lack of it so far!' feeling guilty, but then the next day comes... and I never do the amount of work I say I'll do. Usually I avoid it again by eating breakfast, then relaxing for a bit, and before I know it half the day has gone by again...
    Hey perhaps if you came round mine it may prove more productive. You can make the sandwiches and I can draw some mind ups

    Hopefully the New Year will bring a new enthusiasm for revision. However that means I've still got 2 more full days of procrastination left.
    Current excuse for my lifestyle at the moment.

    Are you dumb son?
    No, I can speak fine thanks.

    I don't know the ins and outs to rhyming rules, and nor do I care, they just sound like they rhyme. I take it they don't, my bad. :rolleyes:

    ur not alone, for me i open my textbook, i read for 25 mins and i tell myself 'i need a break' but my break involves going on TSR and playing tap tap revenge for like 1 hour non-stop, and then to get back to revision, it's like climbing mount everest some times

    i can! kind of.. i did like 3-4 hours today..

    then again, my first exam is on 18th, then 24th and then 27th and i've already covered most of the stuff from before.

    ucas offers really do motivate you.

    put it this way, if you wanna get AAAAAAAAAAAA or what not, revise now; otherwise you can have fun retaking in june and balancing god knows how many exams, i know a person who's got 9 exams in jan.

    OMG this is my home. I thought I was the only one. My friends revise A LOT and stay up till 3am/4am and sometimes don't sleep at all! I don't know how people have such a long concentration span, I see one tiny fly on the window and stare at it for an hour, shame I can't do it to my book

    I have exams on 19th, 24th andd 28th.

    Instead of revising I'm working my way through teaching myself all the cool sounding guitar parts on slash's album.

    After that I'll probably move onto another album. I have the worst work ethic ever.

    Four exams and still can't force myself to work; however in my quest to avoid work I've tidied my room, read lord of the rings and went for daily runs. So my theory is if I find something even worse than revising g I'd do that instead, yet trouble is to find something worse than study!

    I've been so caught up with UCAS and portfolio that I haven't been able to start.

    ...

    Well, that's my excuse anyway.

    no, lots of people have the same problem. you must find a way that works for you. try working in a coffee shop or library where there is nothing to distract you. allow yourself a break every couple of hours to keep your concentration up.

    i used to pace up & down my room, answering questions in an imaginary viva voce. when I'd gone through all the important facts about something 2 or 3 times I'd move on to the next topic.
