    I am struggling to stay motivated right now. I feel as though I should start revising for my actual exams in June, as well as mocks in April, however I just have no motivation after revising a lot for my December mocks and getting bad grades. I am also extremely stressed and drowning in coursework at the moment, as I had to redo so much of it as my grades were awful.


    Sounds like you need to improve your revision techniques first rather than revising hard again and it potentially not working out for you. How do you revise? Do you do practice questions?

    It's still relatively early (in my opinion anyway) for hard revision. You don't have to be that motivated to do 45 minutes revision a day (or even 30 minutes) at this stage. I wouldn't recommend revising hard this early because you'll burn out!
