    I've found that creating lists of things to get done, instead of timetables is really helpful as you don't feel tied down to a structure, and you feel less guilty if you don't stick to it minute by minute. I either try and revise in short bursts (like half an hour to an hour), changing subject every time to keep it interesting or I will give myself the whole afternoon off and then revise non stop from like 7pm - 10/11pm. The latter probably isn't the best way of revising, but it keeps me going and lets me have some time to chill.

    Also, like don't be afraid to give yourself some time off if you're feeling burnt out. Maybe choose a date for when you're gonna start revision next week (like next monday) and let yourself have this time to procrastinate. Get it all out of your system before you need to work again.

    Hope this helps X

    Heyy, thank you for the advice! I definitely need to try making to-do lists as timetables, as you said yourself, only seem to weigh me down. I've thought of trying the podomoro technique too to be fair (the 25 minute sessions) so I should probably get round to it.

    As for a break until Monday, I really wish my consciousness would let it but I really wouldn't be able to live with the guilt, especially now that we only have 3 months left! I really just want to make the most out of the time we have left now, I think I'm gonna have to try and push myself to start going to the library to revise since I'd probably work a hell of a lot better there as well as being free of any distractions. Again though, thank you for your advice, I really do appreciate it!
