I have OCD when it comes to revision Watch

    I can't learn freely. I put things off because I am so scared of approaching it and when I do I can't just cram, I am very slow and cautious and panicky. I can't actually pinpoint what is wrong with me but I feel there is a mental block. I can't absorb facts freely, I have to be in the right place, at the right time, with the right revision plan, otherwise there's no point. Does anyone ever get this?

    I have the procrastinating bit though i think its a fairly common problem among students and it does sound like ur a bit of a head case tbh. Try forgetting all ur probs and other stuff, turn off all electronic devices and settle dwn at ur desk with ur books for an hour. If u really having problems and just cant get down 2 it ever then u should consider professional help though i dont think OCD would be the diagnosis. U could take a look at the thread called "how do you study/revise for exams?" in the general discussion forum.
    Good Luck

    It's not OCD you just don't want to do it, I'm exactly the same I'm scared to do it. Just bite the bullet, the longer you put off revising the more likely you are to fail.
