    Currently she is acting like my GCSEs are tomorrow and putting a lot of pressure on me. Whenever she catches me doing something that's not revision, I immediately get scolded at and told to do workbooks and read chapters. When I say whenever, I mean: whenever.

    It's making me so tired and mindlessly bored, I feel as if I'm losing it. No information is going into my head after such revision.

    There's only so much time you can dedicate to learning per day without hitting a wall, as it were. Just tell her look, I need time to relax as well, I can't concentrate on this stuff every waking hour!
