    Set timers so you have to do it and give yourself treats to motivate yourself.

    Imagine spending 4 years in a prison i like to call school or education, to come back on the 24th August to look at results lower than a grade 3. Its the notion of imagining that you could have easily had better grades if you studied hard rather than watching netflix 5 hours a day, etc..., and you still have time, so aim high and keep back to the revision.

    You can use flash cards, but ensure that what you write is in your own words, and that you remember what your writing. There are times when i find myself blindly writing notes and not actually taking into account what i'm writing. Re-writing your notes always works best for me, but the notes have to be condensed and straight forward. At this point it is really about perfecting your exam technique and understanding what the examiner requires you to write, when you answer questions. For example, you wouldn't get full/half marks for describing in a question that said in bold to explain.

    3 months to go! I think of it as a lot of revision time but also the fact that I will finally be free very soon. Think of it like that.
