    I'm in year 10 and I want to be smarter and better in tests. I go to a private school where everyone is trying really hard but I can't get motivated to revise everyday. I need someone to help me and tell me how to revise properly but also make myself revise.

    Make a plan. I recommend you download MyStudyPlanSQA which is an app to help you study. If you want to be smarter you have to work hard and revise. Download that app, buy notebooks and highlighters and gel pens. Make your notes colourful and neat because if you take pride in your work you will be more motivated to study. When revising a good tip is to chew gum or suck on a mint because if you do that it in the exam you will remember things more easily. GOOD LUCK

    if you want to get better
    just try harder

    Get off TSR and start revising then!
