    Ok so, I'm sitting my AS levels over the next few weeks and I am very scared. I am predicted AAAA and up until now I've pretty much been able to wing it (that's what I did for my GCSEs) but I'm just finding this year a lot harder. The thing is, I want to revise, and some days I can be really productive for hours and get loads done. But recently I've been really stressed and have found it extremely difficult to get anything done, which makes me even more stressed. I can't concentrate on one thing for too long anymore, and whenever I get stuck on anything and can't find the answer it makes me really demotivated and I give up. I constantly feel really panicky and whenever I stop revising I feel really guilty and get more stressed. Can anyone have any tips on how to deal with the stress and how to actually get motivated to stick to tasks I set myself? Thanks

    Hey

    I have the same problems sometimes too, but if you have an effective revision method it can sometimes help I wrote a lot about different revision methods here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3904381
    In terms of the stress, you might find some of the articles over here helpful: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...3-keeping-calm hope this helps
