1)I know the significance of my GCSE's and I've already started revision. The problem is there are days where I can easily work and there are days where I just find revision to daunting to even start. I know I have the potential to do well but I don't know how to combat my mixed feelings towards revision. There are days where I'm really positive and there are days where I would rather just do something else.
2)Concerning time management I have a revision time table but I don't stick to it. It seems quite silly but I don't know how to structure a revision time table properly as I feel as I've not making enough time for certain subjects. Also I don't know how to stick to my timetable which is a problem.
3)My last question is surrounding GCSE and A-levels which is are their any tips on how to learn something more efficiently and effectively which aren't common tips. Additionally, how do I learn without memorising as I typically memorise for all tests I do(as part of cramming) and I want to stop as I've noticed memorisation isn't how you learn.

It's important that you're self motivated if you really want something in life you'll do it no matter what the circumstances are. Try and prioritize subjects which you feel you could do much better in and the same time focus on the ones you know. Make sure to have breaks as long periods of revising doesn't tend to stick in. Some tips I would suggest is that keep doing past papers and understand the questions. The things you get wrong look up on them and work on your mistakes. Watch videos as it's good visualize something. Use colour in your notes if that helps you. Hope this helps. Best of luck!!!
