    Sounds silly but is everyone else unable to bring themselves to revise for subjects they can't stand? How do you overcome this?
    For me, revising for things such as pride and prejudice seem impossible - it's 13:30 and I still can't force myself to start :/

    Imagine yourself failing your exam- how does hat make you feel/Waht difference does it make to your prospects?

    Everyone has bits they find hard or boring. In the past I tended to stryctire my revision, so spread the unpleasant stuff out and alternated with soemthing i did like studying.

    Not sure how well you know P&P, if you dont know it watch the film, then think about what your revision notes have to be such as themes and characters. If you absolutely cant, then do soemthing else, but realise at some stage you will need to bite the bullet.

    I couldn't motivate to do revision for my core science B1 so I put it off and yesterday I realised that if I don't do it I could fail so I spent 5 hours doing revision notes and past papers 😂🌼
    Make sure you have a break every so often and set yourself some goals like do the first bit, take a break and then come back to it x

    Power through it. It isn't too late to start, but we wouldn't want you ending up like this now, would we?Remember, you are the one responsible for your revision. Remove everything you think will be a distraction. Everything. Gone. Byee. Seeya. Revise, but don't revise for too long. Treat yourself! ...in between revision sessions, but do so responsibly. Your revision is singly the only thing which is going to get you through your exams. Nothing else.
