    Hello!
    So I'm doing a 3rd year of A Levels just sitting AS and A2 AQA Anthropology. I'm now revising for Unit 4 on Monday morning (and then freedom!) but I've found I've burnt myself out a little over half term with my 2 jobs and a lot of revision. I did a past paper yesterday and was on the A-A* boundary, but it was an easy paper! Today I had a mad burst of energy to do the other 3 practise papers but couldn't focus at all. It's in 4 days and while I'm happy with research methods (Did Soc and Psych for 2 years) and my fieldwork I feel I've become a little too tired and complacent to revise! CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP MOTIVATE ME FOR THESE LAST 4 DAYS?!


    Hope everyone else is pulling through!

    Thanks

    Little chunks of revision with breaks, if you can go somewhere without distractions even better (I go outside into the garden with my laptop so I don't just put TV on), some decent/coherent notes and make sure you research any parts you don't understand rather than just trying to parrot them back during your exam since understanding seems to help with memorising!

    Only 3 more days to go the freedom! Don't screw up for the sake of a few days of complacency. Good luck.
