    Yeah it's whatever works best for you and if that makes you more productive then it is probably for the best

    Just a quick update (I've never done one of these before) I decided not to work or go out yesterday or today and aside from an hour at the care home I have not left the house. Despite this, I haven't got as much done as many people would in that time because even if I don't want to I tend to break at least every ten minutes, sometimes for up to an hour because I get so distracted and procrastinate so much! But... I have FINALLY managed to revise every subject near enough.
    I have completed my English language paper, completed broadsheets and past papers for biology 1-6 and physics 1-6, a core 2 maths paper and done around 3/4 of business unit 1 in mind maps.
    Now just to recap chemistry 1-6 as I didn't have any broadsheet revision materials so I'm going to make a few notes, and then to begin (eek) learning the content for Cambridge nationals IT (only 4 weeks before the exam and I haven't even begun learning let alone revising)...
    Back to school on Tuesday so I reckon that's me done now, as my boyfriend comes back late tomorrow I will be seeing him after work over the weekend and on Monday, but I shall take an assortment of past papers along with me to see how much I get done.
    Well done - and I have the IT OCR national as my first exam and we've only just been told what the exam is based on so I have to start revising too

    Yeah...I've considered revising before school but since I have to leave at 7:25am I'd have to wake up at like 5:30...NO THANK YOU :laugh:
    I'm back at school on Monday so hopefully I'll still have some motivation left when I get home as it'll be 4 weeks then! :eek4:
    And you're welcome

    Ah I know I can tell our teachers will be like that! The only thing that's worrying me is I have 19 'proper' school days left and we haven't even finished learning content yet! :eek3:

    Haha Aw for science? I mean you could try teaching yourself if it works - with a textbook and videos on youtube or even someone could explain it to you like someone older than you etc. To be honest i am THE worst person to ever meet when it comes to explaining especially for maths. Tbh i get really annoyed when someone doesn't understand something so easy like factorising in YEAR 11.
    I will literally call them dumb - Yes i am that bad I just don't understand though

    Yeah it is mainly science - I've made notes on most topics but some of them don't really make sense - I'll try the YouTube thing though and hope that works!
    And I'm literally the same with people not understanding concepts that are so basic to me - which is so so bad as my ideal job is a maths teacher!! I am however learning to stay calm and explain things in a way people can understand (and not resorting to laughing or shouting at them anymore ) as I get asked for help a lot in lessons

    Aw, it's a shame if you don't get it - I'm relying on it personally.
    Definitely speak to your teachers about it, you might just persuade them

    I know I'm sooo bad for laughing! But admittedly sometimes they do deserve it (once the boy who sits next to me drew out the graph of y=cosx for a really easy multiple choice question and I couldn't help myself :laugh:)
