Nat5 Prelims, Burnout and Studying-HELP!!

    • Thread Starter

    So my prelims (Maths, English, French, Chemistry, Physics, Computing and Geography) start on the 25th of november. I have a paper round so im tired a lot and when I come home to study I just dont have the energy to. My mum says i should be studying for 4 hours a day at least but personally i feel thats bs especially when ive been told by several teachers they dont count for anything. They cant even boost your total score with them if u do bad in actual exam anymore apparently but my parents are having none of it. Most of all I just feel burnt out and I dont actually do bad in school ive passed all my uasps so far and only once got under an A. Even on that occasion i got 84% and its normally 75 but they boosted the "A" requirements to 85%. I've done some study here and there but mostly just homework, assignments and revision for tests. I feel overrun and Burnt out and I've barely studied. Will I be ok? I'm not actually worried about doing below an A but I'm worried about how my parents will "react" to it.

    As a sidenote i'd like to add I want to go to uni to study computing.

    I will also link a photo of the books i got for study. Are they any good?
