    Definitely take some time off to fully recover, and then buckle up for your exams. You don't have much time really. Cut back (as much as you can) on the socialising. It'll pay off when you receive your results come August. In fact, all you really need is top notch time management. Meet up with people only over meals, and have them at a nearby food outlet. Be goal-driven and know your ultimate aim of revising sufficiently well to be confident to face the exams.

    Not in the same league, but I feel ill today and really want to get on with revision but I know it wouldn't work. Maybe if you get a doctor's note, then you can get special consideration...just a thought

    Don't bother trying to revise while you're ill. You won't be able to concentrate and you'll just be wasting your time and prolonging your illness. Revise once you're feeling better. As NickiM said, you might be able to get special consideration if your illness is serious enough.

    Over Christmas in the lead up to the January exams I was quite ill, I took to reading notes whilst in bed for short periods of time - not working the mind too hard. Luckily, I recovered with a couple of weeks to go and spent the time between then and the exams working extra hard to catch up on lost time, it paid off in the end. Though of course everyone is different, do as much or as little as you feel able, then when you're recovered start doing the real work. Finally, get well soon .
