Burnt out is when you reach such a stage where you are almost sick of revision, both mentally and physically and it honestly becomes impossible to pick up a book, let alone read it . Sounds a bit crazy but trust me, when I did my a levels last year, this is what happened to me; I had to take two weeks off revision to fix my mindset again and recharge

This happened to me last year during Year 13 and I was nearly at that point at Uni, just before breaking up for Christmas.
It's a level of fatigue that you have never felt before; you feel physically ill, mentally drained and emotionally tired. A piece of work that would have taken half an hour ends up taking one or two.
I wouldn't say that it happens when you "revise too much", for me recently it was (because i'm me and I like to plough through any work and get it all done well in advance) finding a veritable mountain of work 2 weeks before the end of semester (quite a bit being extra-curricular) that needed doing before Christmas. I got myself worked up about it and a few other things which I won't go into, until the end result was that I was reaching the end of my tether.

It's a truly awful place to find oneself :/

I was in the same boat; believe me, if you put the work in, you have no reason to stress. Create a revision timetable spreading your workload over the week and give yourself breaks throughout the day. Always give yourself an extra long break on a Sunday just to recharge, reflect on the previous week and plan your course of action for the following week. Don’t underestimate the power of good sleep as well!
