I am soooooo burnt out from studying that I can barely read a single word on a page. I have soooo much work to do that, currently, I can't afford the luxury of resting and recuperating. I wish I could just do nothing for a month and relax! What should I do?! Is there anything I can do to stop being burnt out besides resting for an indefinite amount of time?

I am uncertain of what to do because, at the moment, I feel as if I only have two terrible options:
Option 1: rest and don't study and, consequently, fail due to the lack of study.
Option 2: force myself to study, get 'burnt out' even more and retain no information and, consequently, fail due to the lack of retention.

I don't want to fail but it appears that both paths leads to failure...

There is no point in working if you cannot remember anything. Are you doing A levels? Have a rest for a bit, then come back to it. It’s not good to be overworking yourself.
