    Hi there!

    I think you're in the same position as me tbh! I didn't revise for my mocks a few months ago and was disappointed by my results even though I barely revised. I too am losing faith but I constantly tell myself to just keep revising and working for the next few months and then I'll have 3 months to just relax!

    1. Try to manage your time and take structured breaks.
    2. Make sure no one interrupts you when you are in the flow of working/making notes. (I haven't even made half my notes!)
    3. Put up some motivational quotes where you can see them often.
    4. Keep telling yourself that by working hard now, it will give you a better chance of getting into a good sixth form/college.

    I really hope this helps and good luck with your exams! X

    Hey, don't worry because you still have time to pull up your socks! Just set a revision timetable and if you're not too good at sticking to specific times (like me), then just note down which subjects you will do on which day. Make sure to prioritise the subjects you struggle with (for me that would be science ).

    Trust me, if you continue to work even harder just for these next few months, your work will pay off and it will show in your to-be awesome grades! Plus, if your grades were all really good like A*'s ands 9's, then you may become slack and think that you'll get those grades in the real exams with no extra work! So at least now you know what you need to improve on and which areas to focus on most! X

    Sorry for the long answers lol!
