    OK FORREAL SOMEONE HELP ME
    I can't motivate myself to revise ?? like ?? I want mainly A*s but it just isn't going 2 happen at this rate
    I make timetables and can't stick to them ?? then end up pushing what was on one day on the next and so on...
    constantly procrastinating
    I come home from school & I get so tired & napping doesn't work bc I get more tired like honestly what do I do ??
    LOST MY PHONE so it's not even like apps are distracting me, I just end up feeling weary and leaving revision for that day to 11pm, when I don't want to start??

    I got the same problem atm but I didn't think about a timetable which I might do now, your lucky your doing GCSE's so the stress is little, but just find time and get it done. Set your self goals.

    Easy, follow these steps:

    1. Buy a shock collar
    2. Wear it
    3. Give remote to mum/dad/someone responsible (or someone who hates you)
    4. Wait for a shock when being lazy

    But on a more serious note, maybe you should stay in school to revise. It should motivate you a little more if you're in a learning environment. Also maybe just constantly remind yourself that if you mess up at this stage, it will be hard for you in the future.

    Trust me get it right now, and you won't regret it later on. I wish I could go back and actually study properly!

    Good luck fellow TSR poster!

    Go to a library if you can, even a coffee shop could be a less distracting option. Make sure you're eating well too as that'll help your energy levels btw your username is rad

    Ok well I don't really have that problem BUT I think I can help 😊📖. Reward yourself after revising for perhaps an hour then stop for 10 minutes have some chocolate (although actually blueberries are supposed to be good for your brain so maybe have some of those) or listen to the radio or something. Then get back to making some notes or doing practise questions for another subject for an hour. Ten minute break. And so on. Go to bed no later than 9 and make sure you don't have your phone in your room so you get a good night of sleep. Maybe leave one day or a few hours at the end of the week to just do whatever you want as long as it has nothing to do with revision. Cramming willl not help, so don't even bother. You'd be better spending your time revising in advance and then relax try not to stress the night before. Also practise mindfulness (yes I know people hate that but it really works) where you just slowly think about all the things you've revised and learnt that day. Use highlighters to make your notes nice and be positive about revision, it really pays off in the end.
    Hope that helps

    i'm not one to be giving advice but it is really satisfying to cross something off a timetable once you do it so try!!

    I find that staying in to revise/work makes me so much more productive than at home. for example, I'm currently reading through TSR instead of doing my maths homework...
