I'm in Year 11 currently doing my exams in GCSEs and an AS Level. I've been revising quite well in the past few weeks, sticking to my schedule and using all those fancy modern revision techniques school has been ramming down my neck in the past few months (mind maps anyone?).
Since yesterday/Saturday though, I've just lost it! I'm just so exhausted. I have not been sleeping to well, I usually need 10 hours if possible to feel fully energised, but I have only been squeezing in 6 or maybe 5. I have been shaking now and then, I'm that tired, meaning I have to stock up on energy foods (bread, sweets, fruit) and coffee and tea to keep me going.
My parents aren't helping this situation at all. I may sound jealous, and I am, but my friends' mums make them cups of teas and let them just get on with the revision, doing all their housework. Me however, my mum likes to order me about 24/7 then says I do nothing all day. GRR!!! She gets me up at 6 in the morning, during weekends to do some farm work, it's ridiculous (I live in the countryside) and I'm tired yet again!
Now, I have spent 2 hours this morning trying to crack on with revision, eating bananas, getting myself motivated, and I still find myself on TSR, even now, I'd rather not be on here. It just flies past me the information does and I cannot clearly concentrate on it. It feels awful.
p.s please don't say "im doing as levels and it's so much harder", because my AS exam is the only one I feel confident about

Take a break, you seem exhausted by the looks of things. Go back to studying when you feel ready to do it. It's all about the mindset, even if you don't feel great, even thinking that you feel well helps.

Maybe you should try take regular breaks and eat cereal/energy bars. It helps me

You should take a break today and maybe take a nap or try to go to bed earlier tonight if possible, you sound like you're exhausted! Start back into revision when you feel ready Try not to feel guilty about taking breaks because everyone needs to as no one is a robot, good luck in your exams!
