    Okay firstly, relax! If you're constantly worried and stressing, that'll make everything worse! I'm doing the exact same subjects as you and got AAAA at AS so maybe I can help you out a little bit (I hope)!

    I think the main thing that will help you get better grades and also to stop being so worried about it is to schedule your time well. Write down all the exams you have, and then all the topics within those exams. Then, work out how many free hours you have a week, and at the beginning of the week, work out when you're going to revise what. Be specific with this, so instead of writing down something like "Biology revision", I'd write down "BY4 revision - photosynthesis". If you have big topics, break it down even further, so it's manageable and not so overwhelming i.e. "BY4 revision - photosynthesis - light dependent stage".

    This way, you won't just be sitting down thinking "I need to revise!!!" and getting yourself worked up, you'll know exactly what subject, module and topic you want to cover in that session. You'll be able to make sure you've covered everything you need to and you'll know what's left to do!

    If you want any help or a chat, PM me and I'll do my best to help out!

    Honestly, I'm not where I wanted to be in terms of my revision, been feeling a bit stressed and demotivated recently, got mocks next week so I guess I'm just going to have to try my best! Managed to get back on track a bit more this past week though which I'm pleased about

    I find the best way to memorise information is by using flashcards, I go through my notes and make cards with a question on the front and the answer on the back, and that way I can test myself or get other people to test me on them. I've found this really useful for biology especially. I just find that doing this makes the information stick in my head, and they're super easy to do wherever you are!

    Thank you so much! Well done on your Bs too, that's definitely not to be sniffed at either! xxx

    Aww it's normal for everyone to get demotivated but as long as you pick yourself up in time for the exams aha oh I did that briefly for biology last year however I wrote mark scheme answers on flash cards and tried to memorise them 🤓

    But Thankyou xx😉

    Hey,

    It's never too late. You've still got 4 months to work your arse off and since you're starting now in a healthy mental state with no distractions, you have a significantly lower risk of burning out and not taking in any information.

    You can do this, ohhelloloser. Don't allow your past illness be the obstacle at present which could have an effect on your future! :hugs:
