    Now it's half term I've really lost motivation to revise, especially with subjects half done (2 exams & 1 has been sat), I don't know what to revise! Has anyone got any tips?😖😩

    This TSR article may help.

    If you have ever been in a position where you remember that you felt a lot of pressure the day before (eg a past exam) and you wished you did more work, think about that and that might urge you to do some work now to avoid that situation later.

    I think, just go over, make some notes or posters again, do some past papers, look for resources online and.. otherwise take sensible breaks.

    These methods pretty go with all the subjects...
    Method of revision:
    - mind maps
    - teaching others
    - recording yourself and listening back to it
    - repeating things aloud
    - revising with classmates
    - drawing diagrams
    - making a song of it
    - a silly story to help it stick
    - making notes from textbook then summarising those further into your own words (try having a limit on number of words to stick to key points)
    - writing things over and over again
    - using colour

    Make a list of all the topics, prioritise them by ordering in terms of which you need more help with/need more time to go over, then tackle each one

    If there is something you're particularly stuck on, ask the teacher for help!

    Get practise from exam and practise questions! It will help to reinforce things and find your weaker areas.
    :goodluck:hope that helps x

    If you find yourself leaning towards your computer, try and find some interactive online resources. You're not going to gain any motivation to study just be reading from a website or a textbook. If you don't fancy being on your computer or feel you'll be too easily distracted, maybe get hold of a couple of past papers and work through those. If your friends are more motivated than you then maybe they can help you out, although there again is the risk of becoming distracted and abandoning revision altogether. Instead of forcing yourself to study in large chunks, just do 30-60 mins at a time, and take a short break to grab a drink and chill for a bit before continuing. You might find it easier to get through. If you're not feeling it, you won't take in a lot of what you're trying to take in anyway. It would be better to study a bit less and get something out of it, than waste a whole week studying yet getting nothing out of it.
