    How do you get motivated and get in a work frame of mind

    The way I do it is I leave my self no choice but to work. I’ll get all of my other affairs in order like going to the gym, eating, cleaning, food shopping or whatever I need to do that day so then I’ve got no distractions and the only thing left for me to do is work. I can then sit down peacefully and just start getting it done. I won’t have an excuse to avoid doing my work if that makes sense

    Keep a timetable, and stick to it. Get plenty of sleep at night, and work in set time periods, with a fair balance between studying and breaks. Always know what you want to achieve/learn, if you go into a revision session with your head all over the place, you'll find it hard to revise. I know it's pretty cliche stuff that's said all the time, but it works.

    What I plan on doing between now and my first GCSE sit in May, is to slowly build up the amount of revision I do, in order to stay prepared, but also sane at the
    same time. Try not to think too much about doing the revision, and just get on with it and do it.

    Thank you very much, great 👍 tip

    Thank you, I am sure that will help
