    Hi, everyone!

    I feel like everyone has this problem and thats not being able to get into revising. Or maybe that's just me... Anywho, I've never really been into revising because I just had it in my head that if I don't know it, there's not much I can do.

    In the past year or so in school, I have had a very poor attendance due to various medical problems so I've missed out on work. Now, actual GCSE exams are slowly creeping up, I'm worrying a lot! I so badly don't want to fail. And if I stress, it'll just make things 100% worse.

    So, my question is how does everyone revise? For me, I procrastinate a lot and I mean a lot, revise at the last minute and just give up because things just won't go in. Please help!

    Hiya,

    Writing a well structured but realistic exam timetable always prevents me from procrastinating. This is because the work I plan is very specific and focused so that it is achievable in a time limit (2 hour sessions) then I go and do stuff that I enjoy.

    Hey,
    Don't panic too much about it Make sure you have a revision timetable and get organised ! Make sure you know what your revising each day so that all the topics will be covered before you mocks
    Print/Download the spec then tick of everything.
    Make sure you look at your weaknesses
    Use youtube for help
    Also ask people on TSR
