Any tips on how to study effectively and not procrastinate
  • Use the Forest App for concentration.
  • Don't slack.
  • Look back on the old content learn every Saturday or Sunday - pick a revision day.
  • Do all your homework.
  • Make a timetable for revision. If you don't stick to timetables then make a list of things to do and try to complete that list before the week is over.
  • Use your time wisely. You know how to be smart with things like that.
  • For motivation just imagine results day of how you want it to run out vs how it shouldn't turn out.
  • Enjoy what you're studying, you'll learn more easily. Think about it. You're never going to go to college/sixth form ever again.

Good luck! Make the most of this year.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLwFbwPbqyY and other videos on that channel are helpful.
I know you're probably starting A2 this week or something but I hope you recapped everything from AS in your holidays, that was a big help for me making sure all the AS knowledge was firm in my mind before starting A2.
- Short study periods work best; the 25min study/5 min break thing works well for a lot of people
- If you're getting bored of a topic while studying, move on, don't waste too much time on it because that's counterproductive
- Make sure every past paper is done 2-3 times before exams come around.
- Mix up the way you're learning, don't always stick to note taking, try YouTube videos, mind maps, flash cards etc etc
- Find the time you work best at; my parents used to prefer me to wake up early and work but I realised it really wasn't working and I found I worked best from 8pm-1am - finding your optimal working time really helps
- Make sure every week you're on top of exactly what you know and exactly what you need to improve - regularly checking that with yourself helps keep on track
- Apparently highlighting things in yellow helps when learning?

Hope this helps
