    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?

    I was the same as you, I look back thinking I was such an idiot. All I had to do was be happy and stay motivated.

    You can do it. Don't tell yourself you can't do it, negativity may lead to a bad outcome.

    I know exams are just around the corner now. But you can still do it. Allocate your time wisely.

    Remind yourself that on results day you want to open an envelope with good grades, these grades will stick with you forever.

    Positivity is key.

    GCSES are the easiest exams your going to do in your life. Remember that your intelligent and can achieve anything as long as you out the hours in. How do you actually revise? You should spend 1 hour doing revision and take a short break so you can recharge your brain. Remember to relax and treat yourself once in a while. Eat healthy food and exercise. Don't regret if you spend a whole day watching TV, just keep pushing forward in your revision and don't give up! You can do it!!
