    I really want all As in my AS subjects and i wanted to get a lot of revision done over easter. I do maths, chemistry, biology and rs.

    The problem is, with the last units (jan modules), they were pretty straightforward and I was really interested in the topics so revision was a piece of cake. I came out with 90+ ums in them all and I was really happy.

    But now... ive lost interest and I just cba to sit down and work. I get distracted by my phone, tv, playing the piano and I have no idea what to do.

    Any tips?

    It is all about will power. I removed all the strings on my guitar cause it distracted me. When I feel like playing, I cba to restring it.

    Minimize the usage of your phone. Delete the apps that you always use if you use a smartphone.

    I don't know about TV cause I really don't watch TV. After a day of studying, I treat myself to a football match if there is any.

    Have you tried studying at 2am? It really works for me when it comes to science subjects. I seem to love all my topics then. Anytime during the day, I just don't, weird. As for maths, I can only practice in the morning at 7am or 8am, I do that and go back to sleep when I finish 2 papers. Thats how I can study. Maybe it is timing with you?

    Most importantly, you need will power. I don't know how to stress that enough. Don't make time your enemy, do the topics you need to do.
