Getting a bit OCD with my revishion watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have never been OCD before and don't have it yet for the last few weeks i have been going crazy about revision. I do the 6 hours at school then an extra hour at after school revision then go home and revise until 11. i will be honest i do stop for food and pause on what i can't write yet if i as much as stop for a while i fell like i am failing, and trying to pick myself back up. My mum and teachers have told me that it is dangerous and i should do 2 hours maximum but i still feel bad for not doing as much. what should i do?

    That is over working yourself. Even though your school work and revision is important, you can't work from 8/9 in the morning and go all the way until 11. That's more than 12 hours of work! If you revise for that long, you will find that you're tired and the topics you're revising won't stick in your head. You would be best doing a couple of hour long revision sessions a night but make sure you have enough time for food and time to relax on the night time because you need rest
