    Take a short break and do something you're genuinely interested in. Then come back to revision etc and try to revise in the most creative ways possible. I revised for may GCSE sciences by visualising bonding etc in my living room and moving furniture around! Some people find it useful to teach- even if there is no one else about, you could orally explain topics to yourself. Alternatively, mind maps and youtube are good too. If you're musical, make songs up to do with your subjects. Reading and making note cards are good, but will only get you so far. Sounds like you need a few more ways to revise which will give you some variety and will keep you more engaged with the material, which will probably mean that you'll remember more of it too! Good luck

    I'm not sure how you revise but perhaps this post will help; https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...results-anchor

    As far as motivation to do the work, I am in the same boat, first exam on 9th May and I constantly look for ways to motivate myself to stick with the arduous task of learning a lot of information which doesn't particularly interest me.

    Motivation is an individualist thing and people can give you an arbitrary statement and you can apply your own meaning to it but it will be fairly empty realistically. The way I revise is by looking at the constant mediocrity around and me and recognizing that I could be better for myself and those around me, I constantly look for the best future I could possibly get and dream of getting there myself. I'm currently in a bad state school in which our school has been shut down due to health and safety and we are using 3 class rooms and only our year are allowed to enter. I am more or less self teaching at this point and latch onto the possibility, and the opportunity rather than the expectation of me by others.

    I recognize I've probably reiterated myself here.. I'll leave a couple motivation videos here, they are a bit preachy but think about some of the statements in them, there vague enough for you to put meaning into them. (They definitely motivate me.)
