how do you actually start your revision work??? watch

    • Thread Starter

    i have all my materials and know what i should be doing, but i always distract myself in the very last second. it could be the easiest of things. lol i once decided to do 50 push ups instead of starting revision. how do i get through this barrier?

    one of my last posts on @ srmsgcse2018 on insta (attempts to) tackle this (more in-depth than this reply anyway)- the best thing is to start slowly and work your way up. topic checklists are 100% the most useful thing i've come across personally- i have 4 checkboxes so i know when i've read through, made notes on, made flashcards/ posters on and tested myself on a topic. not only does it help me stay on track, it's super satisfying to tick off and you can add rewards for getting through a certain amount of topics for extra motivation aha hope this helped, good luck!
