Ok so I keep getting distracted when revising and always try and put it off when I can however i am doing my GCSE's this year and I am predicted good results however I have not to this date revised properly for any exam. I am getting consistently good grades however I feel like I can do better and beat some of the grades set by my teachers. My dream is to study Physics at Oxford University however if I go on like this it won't happen. I am predicted most 6's, 7's and 8's. Please give me some advice on how I can improve. Any help is appreciated

if you are distracted by your phone, turn it off.if you have a computer or laptop to 'aid' your studying try downloading a thing or using a website that blocks you off yourtube and social media for certain amount of time.create yourself a timetable to revise or a to do listgive yourself a reward after doing revision on something it might help for example, after i revise i can watch this tv show or do this or eat this etc.make revision fun like make quizzes (not that quizzes are fun but it's better than just reading)

Ok thanks ive tried some of these things but not the reward system. The thing with me is that if i sit down to study that is all i will do, which is a negative in itself

You have to want to succeed as bad as you want to breath.

Everyday try to watch at least 1 study motivational video to get you boosted up to start.

Trust me, when you change your mind you change your life completely.

I don't know whether this will work for you but I find getting up really early can be a big help, as trying to focus in the morning is a lot easier.

Also get an extension or app that allows you do shut down your phone/computer, as this will really help.
