    I honestly think you're stressing too much and that's why nothing goes into your head. I advise you to plan your revision for the rest of the holidays and take small but productive tasks at a time e.g. Do two topics a day with 2-3 papers and mark. That's do-able and you'll feel like you've achieved something by the end of the day. The worrying you are doing now can be useful productive time for exam preparation

    That's what I do - only because I can't stand those revision guide, they're too broad and don't get to the main point. Note condensing, memorizing main points is the best way.
