    i actually am really struggling..i have to motivate myself on a daily basis..some days just go without me doing ANY revision.
    It's really hard to motivate oneself. I guess setting targets or setting a timetable works (if you stick to it aha)

    How seriously is everyone taking mocks? I have 5 pieces of coursework to write for this month (just handed 3 other pieces in), and mocks are just at the back of my mind right now!

    My mocks were before Christmas and I did nothing. Literally nothing. It's hard to take them seriously when you have more important stuff to do. I guess as long as you know you will do okay in your actual exams you don't have to worry about them. Last year I got ABCE in my mocks and actually got AAAB in my real exams aha.

    i actually am really struggling..i have to motivate myself on a daily basis..some days just go without me doing ANY revision.

    I want to be able to do more revision but at our college we are bombarded wit so MUCH homework (typically 2 hours worth per subject a week, and im doing four) by the time all that is done I don't have the motivation, or the time. I desperately want to revise and it's seriously getting close to the exams now, but I cannot start properly because the teachers are so relentless with setting homework.

    I count time at sixth form as revision only if it is for History or Geography and is either extra reading related to lessons, typing up course notes or homework. If it is for English or is work I have to catch up on I don't count it.

    It's a disc of video clips for self-teaching yourself and revising GCSE Maths, covers the whole syllabus for almost all exam boards.

    It's basically like those Maths GCSE videos you find on YouTube, except I find MathsWatch A LOT better because it's gives you the simple, straightforward solutions to answering the questions with no fuss or unnecessary thrills. It's also a bonus that everything is just there and easy to find, categorised by grade, easy to understand and much more clearer than any YouTube videos I've come across.

    I'm sure their website can give a better description than I can. http://www.mathswatch.co.uk/

    I knew you did, sorry if my description sounded like I was talking to you as a fellow GCSE student (if that's a bad thing, I'm unsure), I was saying it in a more generalised definition-type of way.

    I chose Maths A-Level and can't wait to start the course next year, wooop.

    Sorry I was getting confused! It's good, you'll enjoy it! What else are you taking?
