    Hi there,

    I am, and unfortunately always have been, terrible at revising! I struggle to get motivated, I procrastinate way to much, I have a terrible memory, and nothing sinks in!

    I have my first uni exam in English Literature coming up and I was wondering how you guys revise? I have been typing up my notes and making mindmaps that include quotes, structure, form etc but it still isn't working.

    Any ideas?
    Thank you x

    Hi! Maybe try explaining points and themes to someone else, and singing or acting out quotes to help them stick. For poetry making little cue cards with all key points and ideas helps me.
    Also maybe try drawing simple little doodle related to your points to help you remember them.
