I know everyone suffers from it to some degree. However for me it's weird. I go to school and I pay full attention is class and I never waste a free study period not revising. Once I get home it's impossible for me to revise. I don't even bother anymore because when I start revising I always give up within 10 minutes. I have only had a proper revision session maybe 4 times since the begging of year 12.
I achieved 3 D's in my mocks which is really bad so I know i need to get out of this habit. I just don't know how.

I’m the same, when I was at college I could sit in the classroom or the library downstairs and get stuff done but as soon as I stopped (such as for lunch) I couldn’t get back into it when I returned to carry on and I’d just end up leaving. At home, whenever I sat down to do some work it was like I became fascinated about everything other than the work I was supposed to be doing. I’d quite often sit and wonder whether I was taking the right course for me because my mind would always get so passionate about something completely unrelated.I found the best thing to do was firstly break an assignment down into multiple, really overly detailed steps (like instead of writing describe something, I’d actually bulletpoint •who •what •when etc..really break it down). It seems like more work to do but when you’re ticking stuff off every few minutes, it really motivates you to carry on. Another tip was to say to myself “I’ll just do ten minutes” at any time I wanted to study but odds were that once I started, I’d get into it ans carry on for a bit longer. This especially works if you find random moments throughout the day when you’re at home not doing anything..like watching tv, waiting for you dinner to be ready or just sitting at the bottom of the stairs..those short study times all add up.Speaking of short periods of study, it’s nothing fancy but the notes on my phone became a lifesaver for me at college..I can’t tell you the number of assignments I finished because I wrote parts out in the notes and them emailed them to myself to copy and paste into work on deadline day.Last edited by hannah_ca; 03-02-2018 at 01:56.
