    Hey I'm an A2 student studying three a levels there's so much content to revise for and I feel like I'm slowly giving up. There's about 4 months until my real exams and I feel that there's just too much work ive become so stressed that I neglect everything which is ruining my social and mental life I am so drained and burnt out I will be surprised to even pass my a Levels, the fact that al my subjects are linear make it even harder because I feel like Ive forgotten my AS stuff, I don't know where I'm going with this but has anyone got advise on overcoming this fear of running out of time and extreme procrastination?

    Try not to worry too much about it, just do your best and accept that is all you can do.

    I am in the same position as you right now, thinking about all the content is very overwhelming!
    I've created a timetable and I follow it loosely in order to try and fit in what I can but also having flexibility so i don't stress over it too much!
    At the moment I'm creating flash cards to revise from (I find this particularly useful for remembering techniques/ practicals in chemistry & biology but it doesn't work for everyone).
    I've also created a checklist, ticking off what has been covered in class and then giving each topic a colour (traffic light system) as to how I feel about each topic, so red being needs a lot more revision, orange is it needs going over a little and green being I'm okay with it and just need to practice questions! This way you can eliminate the stuff you know that you're okay with (even if that isn't much to start with) and work on the stuff you're not so good at.

    I find this makes it less daunting and easy to set goals/ plan what you need to work on next!

    I hope this helps! ☺️
