    I literally have my gcses in a couple weeks and I've never been more depressed, anxious, and unmotivated to study.
    There's just so much to study and so little time to do it and on top of that I'm in war with that overbearing voice in my head telling me to just give up and drop out and amount to nothing because "apparently" that is inevitable. To be honest, my mental health isn't my main concern here, my problem is that I cannot get myself to study, even a little bit (which is also adding to my depressive thoughts - great) Does anyone else battle with depression and how do you get yourself to study?

    Imagine yourself the moment you leave the exam or when your reesults come. Wont you wish you had tried your best and not wasted time worrying but spent it revising? Worry and mope after the exams. If the results are importnat then you have to remember that and try your best. Break it down and do what you cna in the time left. You will be in a lot better position of you rebise hard for 2 weeks than doing nothing.

    I agree. You might just be depressed now, but doesnt that mean you would be even more depressed if you got bad grades because you didn't revise? In order to get out of this cycle, just forget about the stress now and think about the happy thoughts you might have after gcse. The answer to your problem should be: BE OPTIMISTIC 😉
