    I have my GCSE exams that have already started. My next exam is on 17th and I feel really low on motivation. I really cannot be asked to revise and I so tired of revision. I get distracted by my phone and youtube. I need someone's help to tell me how to START revising because once I'm in the mood I can study but I cannot get myself into the right mindset. I want to study Medicine in the future which means GCSEs are REALLY important at the moment.

    Hi there

    I'm in the same boat as you, first exam on the 17th. However somehow, I've trained my mind to feel positively about exams. You need to remind yourself, that it is only this next month that will be hard. But if you sacrifice your time this month and put all you've got into your revision, your results will last a lifetime. Just remember, ONE MONTH. After that you will have the longest summer of your life, to do things with your friends, go on your phone as much as you please, and you will know that whatever happens you tried your hardest in your GSCEs.

    I think that if you truly want to do Medicine, and that's what you want to do. Then do it. There is nothing that is stopping you apart from yourself.

    • Gather all the facts you need to revise into a list.
    • Digest/consolidate the list into as simple a form as you can - maybe bullet points.
    • Create mnemonics to make it easier to commit the list to memory. One technique used to improve memory is looking at objects in the room you're in, make them tell a story. Or else study the list while listening to a particular song/album.
    • Alternatively, record yourself reading it and listen to it on repeat. I did mp3s for a friend and myself, reading the list out and making jokes about the revision material.
