Over the past week, I have felt tired and demoralised for my upcoming exams in May/June. Although I want to revise and have been doing so for the past month, I have recently lost all my energy, which makes my revision less effective as well as efficient. When looking back on this, I feel stressed and depressed wishing I had done 8hrs of revison instead of 4 because I have simply lost all energy. How can I overcome this?

Not trying to make anyone proud. I'm doing it for myself, or were you trying to make a joke?

Hi davist,

I also suffered from this issue, particularly while doing my A Levels.

The way I dealt with it was by making a realistic revision timetable, which I was able to stick to. I worked out how many days I had left before my exams started, and arranged revision for each subject in exam order, starting with revision for the closest exam first.

I then decided which topics I'd learn for each subject, each day. For example:

Monday - ICT - networks, the Internet, database systems, distributed computing.
Tuesday - ICT - system development lifecycles, HCIs, teleworking, security.
Wednesday - ICT - management information systems, management of change.
Thursday - Geology - water resources, aquifers, groundwater supply, springs.
Friday - Geology - oil and natural gas, traps, recovery of oil and gas, coal.

And so on.

Creating a revision timetable allowed me to stay on top of my revision, and also helped me to feel like I was making progress, which then helped with getting my motivation levels back up.

I hope your motivation returns soon
