    So, I’m year 11,and my GCSEs are like 80 days away
    But it feels like I’m not doing sufficient revision at all and I’m struggling to stay motivated, so this is making me stress a hell of a lot
    Any tips or advice on this sort of stuff?

    Watch freesciencelessons for science on youtube and use mathsgenie for maths.Learn the content first then do past papers.Go through the specification to make sure you know everything.Stay organised,revise in small chunks but a lot of the time.Use the pomodoro method.

    Try and pace your revision. A timetable really helps - but start by allocating FREE time where you can just chill and do something you enjoy. You don't want to burn out before you get to your exams!

    ahh same. Today I revised only 2 of my 3 hours. I hate note taking. I want to just past paper question it all until the exam. So annoying,

    I say find a good way of revising, the you like, and revise in half and hour sessions with 5-10 mins break if concentration levels are poor. With revision methods, I hate flashcards so I don't really do them-I use other methods such as creating stories in my head, or associating rude/inside jokes with words, definitions or formula.

    Best thing to do is be organised.
    Stop revision for now. if your stressed, revisions no help. At all. Go sit down, chill, then make a revision time table. Be realistic-don't be unsure, fit in times you know you can do. Don't be unrealistic "Oh lets revise all day no breaks till 10 o clock then I go sleep!". Goto Excel, or google Spreadsheets and make a timetable.
    Go through every CGP book, grab highlighters and highlight stuff your good at, stuff your ok at and need a bit revision, and things your **** at. Get your homework done, Get your coursework done. once priorities are out the way, you have nothing in the way of revision-after this, its all up to you.
