    Ok its quite hard, theres tons of steps involved are you sure you're ready?

    OK

    Step 1=Log off tsr and switch off all distractions/electronics etc, tidy your desk and make an achievable list of what you want to do in a nice 30mins blocks

    Step 2=Oh look at that

    For REAL THO

    1) Cut off distractions, not knowin the latest vid realesed on Ytube WONT KILL YOU, not seeing the latest profile pic on fb WONT SUFFOCATE YOU and missing the latest Twitter trends WONT DECREASE YOUR LIFE EXPECTANCY BY 5 years!

    2) MANAGEABLE chunks, go for 30 min sessions maybe and break for 5-10

    3) ORGANISED notes with clear checklists- I find it good to print off the specification so I know EXACTLY what I need to cover

    4) PLAN the rest of your days, a timetable does wonders if its REALISTIC

    4.5) Past Papers:afraid:, many dont want to hear this but it helps the most for a lot of people. You need to be able to APPLY KNOWLEDGE and questions are often recycled every 3-5 years as the exam writers need to take a break every so often also check up on the grade boundaries, sometimes its wayyy lower than you think! XD

    5) Make sure you dont OVERDO it, you still need breaks, we're all only human and BURNING out is dangerous

    Wait until your exams are over, then make plans and stick to them no matter what.

    I always used to put things off until another time. I then stopped doing this altogether and had someone else do them for me asap.
