    Yep, it may sound like a stupid question. But I play PS4 a lot and do bits of revision while I'm not playing. However, playing video games is not productive and so I am wondering whether there is any chance of me revising and playing a game of FIFA at the same time, for instance.

    Well, if you want to get a low mark in the test you're revising for, then doing it while playing PS4 is the way to go! But, no, you should seriously revise without playing video games simultaneously. You most likely won't do any revision at all, because you'll be focusing too much on the gameplay.

    Perhaps you should just not use your PS4 until in the evenings. It'd be silly to try and study and play at the same time - rather do one, then do the other as a reward.

    Tuesday's game vs Liverpool saw me score one of the goals of the season; I am too good for football. Now, I've moved on, to education, to make up for the 0% I got in virtually every GCSE.

    If you play online seasons, I think each half lasts for 4 mins therefore 8 mins per game. Make sure you pause the game 3 times, then utilise the full 30 seconds you get to study. The opponent may pause usually pause the game once or twice too, so utilise that time to study too. So for every game you could be getting 1min 30s - 3 mins to study. Play 10 games and that could be 30 mins and that is all you need for GCSE lol

    I suppose you could make a recording of yourself asking questions, waiting a few seconds and then saying the correct answer. You could feasibly do that and play games like Fifa.

    i know what you mean. When Im on COD Black ops3 I try and revise between the games when in the game lobbies. Its almost impossible to properly study and learn new information, however revising is not very hard. The trick is to read 3 sentences then repeat it think about it when your sniper camping or something like that, then try recall the information.

    If done properly you can revise up to 12 lines of text per hour. Don't go any further then this otherwise you will forget.
