    This might seem like a silly question, but GCSEs are only 2-3 months away and I feel like I have barely done any revision (even though I have done lots, just not as much as I woud like). Does anyone else feel like this?

    Also, should I feel bad if I take days off revising, especially since the exams are so soon or should I start to try more to revise every single day from now on until exams are over?

    Yh I had the same feeling when I didn't revise for 3 days. Other than that I think I've started to lose motivation, I don't know why but I get very exhausted just from doing a simple task. But I guess we have to stick through it to get the grades we want. Just waiting on the 3 month holiday.

    Lots and lots more people are getting great a education which is causing a flood of highly educated people looking for very few jobs and its only going to get worse. If you want to do anything with your life then you really should be revising every day

    If you do miss a day of revision, the guilt afterwards won't make you revise any better the next day. It'll just give you a more negative head space. Worth planning a timetable as to when you're going to revise, with a few days of built in, and treat these days as guilt-free. if you break this timetbale and have an extra day off, though, don't feel bad about it. Just use it to fuel you on, and revise harder!

    guilt is a really unhelpful emotion when you're trying to revise - do your best but don't over work yourself either, if you do less work than you'd planned in a day don't beat yourself up about it, there's always tomorrow and regretting not doing work doesn't fix anything,i definitely could have revised a bit more for my GCSEs but I would have been so miserable, at the end of the day all you can do is your best!

    Revising everyday for GCSEs is a bit excessive this early, but it depends what grades you’re aiming for
