    Um, maybe?

    Thanks! By osmosis do you mean the thing that happens in cells or something else?
    If you put the book on your head you can absorb information through to your brain . . . :ahee:

    This is pretty much what I am going through right now, and this is what seems to be working:

    1. make a list of life goals that you will not achieve if you don't pass your GCSEs
    2. cry
    3. stare at lit notes and copy out everything the teacher has suggested that you do in past essays/exam questions
    4. hope the grade boundaries are low
    5. try writing out good points that you've done before and have gotten a tick for and try to improve them

    Good luck!

    I'd just go on incognito.. :getmecoat:

    I've used that extension before and that's exactly what I did.


    Okay, the first one's fine since I don't have a smartphone, but apps don't work like I mentioned above. I think I could just turn off the internet altogether, or even not use my laptop, but I basically do all my revision on my laptop and the internet's too helpful...
    I've set it so that it works in incognito as well

    Look at great things that great people achieved and ask yourself why can't you be more like them? Have a goal. Know what you are working for and start with small because if you plan big there is a high chance that you'll fail to do that and you'll your confidence and give up. Just have a realistic plan for what you want to do tomorrow. Like 2 hours reading. next week, make it 2 and a half then 3 then 4 etc..
    On another note, get off TSR

    1. I was getting too attached to TSR. Now I set myself one or two -short- periods daily to log on, and I keep to that. It has worked.

    2. As for study, 'divide and conquer' is the only approach (I've tried many) that works for me- as well as being realistic as to the amount of time/work I can do. An example. Let's say I want to revise a set text for a literature exam. It's a big ask to take a 400-page novel and revise. So, I might set a goal to revise one theme in that novel for a specific period of time, or even just look at a single episode in the novel that illustrates the theme, for a smaller period of time. At the end of the set time I take a break and tick off the item of work that I did, which makes me feel better- even if the material doesn't seem like it's going into my head.

    3. A small tip that paid off well for me is to disable the sound on my devices that indicates new email. I used to get sidetracked by it.

    I need help.
    I know some handy hints about procrastination, why people do it and general advice on how to drop the habit. I will post some later.
