    legend! Thank you very much. I often make the mistake of revising a full module over 4 hours or so, I need to work on revision a lot.

    Don't worry haha. I am in the same boat as you. I try and stick to my own advice of taking regular breaks but often I find I will have revised for 2-3 hours straight without taking a single break. That's not to say its a bad thing, it shows your focussed and determined in what you're doing but of course less goes into your brain as a result.

    Certainly! I agree. I always leave revision far too late too. Distractions like social media are also quite bad with me haha

    For that, I do actually have a tip. Put aside your phone, perhaps in a different room or give it to a person you trust (whilst revising of course). Knowing that your phone is next to you gives you the urge of checking out what Bob, **** and John are doing on the weekend (lol).

    On the other hand (and I am giving this a bit too much thought) by not having your phone next to you, you might be even more eager to check what's happening. There are all generic tips anyway which for work for some and don't for others.
