    Heyy, people! How's everyone's hols going?

    Basically, Im sitting here procrastinating obviously and I feel like I dont know how to revise?! I have revised since AS began and well, my GCSEs, as well. But sometimes, when I start to read through my notes (which summarises the revision guide/textbook/previous mark scheme answers) and highlight it, it doesnt go in and I get bored quickly and begin to procastinate! This happens sometimes, and other times, I can actually revise somehow.

    Did this make sense to anyone? Does anyone know what im going through?

    So, the overally question is: how to stop procastination and revise properly?

    Cheers, guys (in advance)

    P.S. Yes, i do want to go to uni and im also hoping to apply to medicine, which I know is so hard, but this still isnt motivating me! I even have a slideshow of inspirational quotes as my screensaver! And my exam timetable is stuck up on the wall, filled with all 11 exams! *cries*

    With A levels its so much simplier, Im guess you are doing chemistry and Biology? just revise one topic at a time and do the relevent past paper questions to it immediately so that it sinks in the head. I have to do lectures, and each lecture is one essay question (doing biomedical sciences) so like today I went over the lecture and now I have attempted the question set by the examiner, to see how much I could regurgitate back. If you think A levels are hard, wait until you get to uni. we have no set guidebooks, revision books, its up to you to make the notes and read up scientific papers to them. medicine is good because they spoon feed you what to revise but its just the sheer volume so the people that do well have an excellent short term memory (cos all the questions are multiple choice that mainly tests you on breadth rather than depth) Im digressing now, but I got through A levels cos of the mark scheme, key words just bugged me so much. Uni is more flexible, majority do get 2.1 but firsts....

    I do chem, bio and maths as well like you, I come on here and read the threads of people revising which makes me think that I really need to get started with my work. Or I just put all my books out in front of me and set everything up so I keep staring at it and it forces me to work. Also, you could think the quicker I get the revision done now, the more time I'll have free later.
