    Hi all, I've had an issue with my revision for a long time now, I'm hoping to see if anyone has had a similar issue and maybe has some advice. Just to give some context, I'm an AS student studying English, History and Psycology. The work, although plentiful isn't too hard but there is just so much to remember. I need to revise, however I simply can't, during the evenings I can never bring myself to revise or do homework. Throughout my years of school I've consistently left things late, and I can only seem to work and concentrate in the early morning. This led me to wake at 4am during the GCSE exam season each day. I want to be able to revise, and do great in my exams because I'm confident of my ability if I work hard. Does anyone have any tips to help me revise more, especially in the evenings. Thanks.

    Do it in short stints and vary up your revision methods to try and keep it more interesting.

    Try to make revision more exciting. For example, instead of revising in your room, go to the library or go outside. You could also try having a snack with you, or revise by walking around and reading out your notes (kinesthetic learner). You could also try to structure your revision around plans. I personally find I'll do more if I have something planned. So, if I say I'm going to go swimming at 6. Then I'll revise until 6, and then revise a bit more when I come back if you know what I mean
