    Aw yay, I'm proud of you. ^-^ Glad you managed to complete some work even if you didn't get a lot done yesterday. :five: - I have days like that too. :grumble:

    That sounds good! - I really need to start using my free periods more wisely. I have so so many yet always seem to get distracted by my friends in the majority of them. >.>

    But no, the exam solutions videos on stats are so helpful, I get deviation now, I just couldn't get my head around the concept, but diagrammatically represented is so simple to understand, can't believe I dididnt!

    I feel so tired and energyless from working and revising so much :/

    I have the motivation to revise, but it almost feels like my body cant physically keep up with how much work my "mind" wants to do. I've tried having lucozade to give me energy but it doesn't seem to be working maybe I should try another energy drink or something.

    Any advice guys? What do you guys do when you have little energy but want to revise more and keep going?

    Lucozade won't help - or any energy drink for that matter. You'll get a small boost then a crash that will ruin everything, it's very inefficient.

    Drink lots of water. And don't worry - it took me a long time to find how I revise best and what keeps me going. Just keep going until you find your groove.

    Oh right I see, well that's convenient. :lol: + Yes, I totally agree. - His videos are amazing. Is it just me who finds that he talks incredibly slowly though so in order to get engaged you've got to speed it up to at least 1.5 times the original speed?

    I really wouldn't recommend drinking an energy drink or anything of that sort bc:

    A) They're quite disgusting.
    B) Like Chad said, it'll only fuel you temporarily and you'll most likely feel a whole lot worse than you did initially once it wears off.

    What would be much better is for you to go to sleep right now and wake up early tomorrow. Have a good breakfast in the morning so you feel good all day then after sixth form you can start your work. I know you probably want to get lots done and really want to be able to tick stuff off but maybe you should take the rest of the day off. It'll be better for you to spend today planning for tomorrow and making sure it'll be perfect than for you to be inefficient today due to your tiredness then drag the same feeling over onto tomorrow too, resulting in two partially unproductive days bc you haven't had enough rest. Remember that it's okay to take a day off sometimes. - Especially if you need to. Try not to force yourself to work if your body refuses otherwise it may just lead to de-motivation.

    I don't always do this bc I'm silly but that's really the advice that I would give to myself.

    However, if you still feel quite adamant that you want to complete some work then I'd suggest that you:
    • Get yourself a bottle of really cold water.
    • If it was a bit earlier I would've recommended a quick nap but it's already practically nighttime. (':
    • Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SueEc7NgU10
    • Set a timer.
    • Start working.

    + for reassurance, your body should adjust to your working levels soon.

    You are doing OCR aren't you? And yeah some of the stuff I skip the video because he talks slow, but he is really easy to understand at the same time.

    Nope, I'm re-doing all the questions that I have in my notes!.. which tbf does include quite a lot of questions from the S1 Edexcel textbook. I think if I did all of those from the book however, then it'd get really repetitive + boring.- My time would be better spent doing past papers to see where my weaknesses lie etc (once I've got a good grasp of the concepts, ofc) as I don't think there'd be a huge point in repeating something several times if I feel I can easily complete it.
