    Hi
    I was just wondering how much revision per weeknight you guys are doing for GCSE's?
    I've got on my revision timetable to do 1 1/2 hours a night but I'm really lacking motivation and only manage doing one 1/2 hour session or two 1/2 hour sessions.
    Any tips for motivation?

    Thanks

    I passed all my GCSEs and I would say do an hour every night apart from weekends, then the last 3 weeks before your exams step it up to 3 nights one hour each, 2 nights 2 hours each
    I think I was doing 11 hours extra a week at one point, because I did 4 hours worth on sundays too as well as 3 nights one hour and 2 nights 2 hours. Honestly, it's worth it. You wanna pass right?

    I revised for each exam the day before. The success of my tactic is reflected by my grades. Now imagine if I started revising a week before my exams.

    Think:
    Every second you live on this earth, time goes by. "Tick tock, Tick tock"
    Think every second you waste on this earth, will give you a interminable life of working 9-5.
    God gave you this life to make full use of it.
    NOW THINK
    Every second you use wisely and get good grades life will become better.
    Think when you get that university offer to Oxford or wherever you want to go.
    Think when you get that amazing job earning 100k a year.
    Think when you beat everyone you know at grades.
    Think when you leave you quiet town, to leave for University, to be a new person, to be a successful person, to be a completed person.
    I hope I've actuated you.

    Coursework just getting in the way, god I hate art. I will slap myself ( lightly in the arm ) If I don't start by Easter :s I'm not one to get an A without working harder then regular A achievers :P From Easter I'm revising all day everyday, of course with a lot of appropriate breaks.

    Not everyone rolls like that.
    Tbh, starting around about in easter on your GCSEs is enough to get A/Bs, depending on what you're taking that is.

    My history teacher always reminds us that ''You get what you deserve''.

    He also has a tendency to embed revision tips in our brains during every lesson by putting up this revision tip thing on the interactive board, as well as year 11 assemblies. It says that we remember like 95% of what we teach and like 10% of what we read, amongst other things.

    Here's an example of the revision thing he shows us, it might be helpful:
