    I keep getting panic attacks when i try to revise and i just cannot focus at all. I came home as soon as term ended as im less stressed, sleep better and eat better than i do at uni.
    I've got about 60 hours of lecture audio recordings, as well as past papers, lecture notes and textbooks.
    My first exam is in the first week of May and i'm already panicking as i've got 6 exams. How would i make a plan of some sort to revise and not panic?
    If i fail then i get kicked out of Uni.


    HELP??

    Where do you revise? Perhaps an environment change would help. Go somewhere quiet, with few distractions, like the uni library perhaps.

    Firstly, come to terms with the idea that you can get a lot done in the last 4 or so weeks left before your exam.
    Afterwards, write up a revision table - allowing plenty of short breaks and time to take for yourself.
    You'll do fine if you stick to it. Don't panic!

    A well planned timetable which includes eating regularly and exercise as well as your work is what you need. Trust me I know from experience

    Planning is key - don't just revise in-between doing other things - have strict planned work and break sessions. Make sure you allow yourself time for breaks, work and other things. Have complete days off and have fun - you can't just sit in a room for the next month and having time off gives you perspective to absorb and relax. If you're having panic attacks you need to start working in another way, and it sounds like you're just letting things get on top of you and not working in a systematic way. It will help if you plan. Good luck!

    First of all no one gets kicked from uni for failing an exam. You have the option of a retake which is capped at 40% or failing that, you can retake the module the following year for an overall module cap of 40%.

    You need to plan your revision so make a timetable which also includes revision 2 days before a particular exam in that subject so your on top

    Also you gotta relax. 24hr revision will send you mad so take regular breaks and every so often just chill out. Go for a drink with freinds or something. Just dont put yourself under lock and key as ul make yourself worse
