    At GCSE, I never touched any textbook, took any important notes down, read outside my subjects, paid attention, cared about my subjects or even know what the word 'revision' even means. Infact, I didn't even know what GCSEs and ALevels were and that I had exams ahead.

    Now, at ALevel, I've transformed and it's kind of like a totally new me. I'm now managing 5 hours of work a week.

    Started revision a week ago and after receiving my results yesterday am now going full-steam ahead with revision.

    I'm getting all of my revision material ready so that I don't have to prepare it all come May/June. I have 7 exams this June and 6 of those are essay-based subjects requiring a lot of quotes to memorise. To top it all off, I have two days where I have two exams on each day so it makes last-minute revision for the latter exam that day all the more harder.

    I'm currently doing about 2-4 hours a night and aim to maintain this all the way through to exams, but I'm still having my own 'downtime' i.e. I still play videogames for a couple of hours and go to work at weekends. But revising now is seriously helping me remember some of the things that I'd have previously forgotten had I left revision to a later date.

    Yeah I guess it's rather common now, good luck with your exams. Like, at GCSE, I don't think I realised that the exams we did were real and important that would even be significant in determining the future. I thought they were just those annual tests you do, like how we always did assessments at the end of years 7,8 and 9. Not like my school explained to me, also the reason why some of my GCSE choices were bad too. Why I selected GCSE German and Geography. I have no idea? Although I managed to miracously do well in both. Now, at ALevel, no more jokes, no more fun, laziness, negligence or stupidity. Just, straightforward work and study.

    Anybody else always feel really motivated in the morning to revise later, but when they get home just can't find any effort to do anything? This describes me at the moment.

    It's not a case of 'revising'... More a case of 'learning for the first time'.
