    Hi Nisha, it's a shame that you feel demotivated, especially when you can get so much done, considering how much you have done already To be honest, you still have a week off and if you can't find the motivation to revise, take the day off, enjoy yourself and really get your head down tomorrow. Or if you really, really want to revise, sit down and set a timer for 5 minutes and plan to do something like read a page of the revision guide and hopefully you should become interested and it might start you off feeling more motivated to revise.

    Bear in mind what you are working towards and why you want it - if you want something hard enough it should be a good starter to giving you motiation

    No problem - if you wanted to make better use of your time you could maybe do some organisation stuff to help you be better organised for your revision, like making checklists of stuff left to do or filing your notes if you haven't already done so

    I hope you manage to enjoy your day and perhaps get some studying done

    Yes just try and do something if you feel like you want to - just don't try and force it because it won't do you any favours

    Thank you and good luck with you studying today

    So, today i shall say ' it has been the most unproductive day during the Easter holiday' that is because I wasn't motivated and i couldn't be bothered to do anything as i got distracted but this is my fault ... I decided to take a break but i felt guilty so I got a little bit done

    Only managed to get a past paper done and revised the three topics + weaknesses

    1. Topic C - Overview & questions - Grade A
    2. Topic D - Overview & questions - Grade A*
    3. Topic E - Overview & questions - Grade A

    Overall Grade A ( could have got an A* if i memorised the case studies)

    Tomorrow i promise to get a lot done

    Well done both of you

    And Nisha don't worry about not doing too muc (though I think you have achieved so much anyway) Take the anger you feel from today and use it as a reminder in the future of how you will feel if you don't do something. This way, it will become fuel for mitvation and become a positive event

    I'm not angry , it's just that i'm upset but that's true and thank you for your kind words, you make me feel so much better
    Also, if you do edexcel for any of your subjects , they have released the 2015 papers but they don't actually show the papers and it goes back to the homepage. Is that with you as well?

    UPDATE FOR 02/04/16
    Like most of you, I'm disappointed with what I have done today, but I am also happy in a sense because when I started doing my History notes, I just got on a role and must have spent about 4 hours making them. So I basically:
    • Printed past papers
    • 15 Chemistry Q Cards
    • Heroes English Notes: Wreck Centre, Francis at War, Frenchtown and other specific places
    • History (12 pages so far): Cold war outcomes for USA, USSR and Cold War itself, Soviet expansion in Europe, Why did it end peacefully?
