revision can be fun, if you are interested in the subjects you are reading, btw if you have done your homework well all you have to do during revision is in a way remind you of what you already know, i know it is easier said than done though.

yeah i've developed this horrible obession with listening to music when working, when it first started it was ok, but now its like a must. i can't see to concentrate much without it, is that really awful?

taht's not good..... it means that you won't be able to concentrate without music... try cutting down bit by bit (like u would with addiction )

it is absolutely horrible........ i went through that phase where I couldn't study without music either.... but there's only one way out of it, and that's to retrain your mind to do it without.

revision can only be fun if you truly love the subject- my neighbour is 3rd year medicine + she swears that she enjoys revision cos she is so interested in it...

mmm I cant concentrate in exams at all, anybody got any advice for that? Every time anybody makes any movement, or a different teacher comes into the room, I have to look up and watch and then I lose concentration on the question I am doing. I am constantly looking up at the clock and going off into day dreams. It also happens when I am revising but to a MUCH greater extent...cos there is so much more to distract me at home!!! Anyone got any hints???

i did that all last year...we did out exams in the hall and i sat next to the window. the curtains were drawn but i had this tiny little gap next to me, which had this beautiful view of the field and i kept staring out of this 30 cm gap and day dreaming. i think at the end its ur exam, before u go in, i tend to just sit there with my eyes closed and just try and block everything...iy doesn't usually work....but i suppose its better than nothing
