    Basically I really, really struggle to revise to the extent nowadays, I revise a few days before the exam, and weeks before I sit at my desk contemplating what it is all about and think about exams and kind of stress, then go into a mode where i think its impossible to revise so I end up doing no revision at all. So what is the best way to try and think positive and how do I cram as I have an exam on monday and haven't started at all, how do i revise and remember because I have never really properly revised before?? Please help anyone??

    I made a revision masterpost here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3904381 and I think the pomodoro technique works well for cramming, which you can find more info about here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4078095

    JUST DO IT!! Revise using flash cards, mind maps or past papers. Write small sentences on flashcards and keep repeating the sentence until you get it correct.
