    All this talk about revision.
    I haven't even started yet, but that's only because I'm a disorganized person.
    I've basically just winged my exams and have been getting As so far in Maths and Biology (hopefully that'll carry over to the main exam..!!). But I really want to get rid of my extremely lazy work ethic.
    How do you start revision? How do you even do it effectively? Timetable?!

    Help would be much appreciated :P.

    I just plan what I need to do for my tests, and do that first. Any spare time I have left over is devoted to subjects that I struggle in or have poor teachers in. It is literally a matter of sitting at my desk, grabbing my fineliners (colour coding is the way forward), turning up my music and getting my head down.

    I break every half hour to forty five minutes, changing subjects every hour and a half.

    Good luck!

    It takes time, I know that much. I was so upset in form my form tutor was like "Oh, Anna. I know what you need. Chocolate, bubble baths, duvet days and your friends and family. One day there'll come a day when you can't believe you were so upset about it." I believe her.

    Also

    Don't bother with relationships until older. :mm:

    Eh. He was my best friend for five years before he became my boyfriend, so I lost both in one fell swoop.
    Long distance is not easy.


    Thanks

    Yeah see I thought I was working hard by getting ahead with my coursework and doing extra things now and then and doing my homework early, but no.. some people are hardcore revising like nine months before the exams, I feel so lazy
