    I know it sounds really horrible but I was in the same boat last year but what worked for me was getting up early in the morning, like at 5/5:30 a.m. It sounds disgusting, I'm aware, but I found that when I woke up early, I found it much easier to get motivated and my brain seemed to absorb the information a lot easier and for a lot longer.

    Hope this helps xx
    I already do this sort of thing, but at 4am I just fall behind on my promises

    Figure out what type of learner you are. Try different revision techniques e.g. if you're sick of writing notes watch a video recapping the topic if you're sick of reading the textbook, make flashcards and have someone test you or read them out yourself. If you are struggling to complete exam sample questions, review that topic by making a quick mindmap or poster
    I'm kinaesthetic, but none of the revision techniques for kinaesthetic learners have helped me so far. I do have an eidetic memory, so the memorising part for me is easy for the subjects that I enjoy (note 'enjoy' so it doesn't help me in the long run.

    The lack of motivation will come from a feeling that there's no point or that the reward isn't there. If it legitimately doesn't matter what grades you get, then I don't see how you'll magically gain motivation. Revising isn't something you can force unless you want to do it.
    I find it incredibly easy to talk myself out of revision or anything in general. I understand that the reward and the 7/8/9s are there for my taking, but it isn't enough for my subconscious to justify revision.

    Mate trust me you don't need to revise till mid/late April. I only did 2 hours a day and got 7 A*s 3A's 2Bs
    4s in Maths and English, remember? I need Maths especially to do Computer Science, Physics and of course Maths in 6th form. Both of the other subjects I have an affinity for so I don't need to revise that much. That being said, I would like a 9 in Maths, but anything above a 6 would be amazing.

    Afterschool sessions, or staying behind after school to do revision would work better. Also going to see your teachers at lunch or revision sessions at lunch, again will get you into the revision frame of mind.
    I did Physics for the whole day. Unfortunately, there are people from Year 10 who are working in the library and they wouldn't let me revise in quiet, so I made only 2 flash cards in the space of 1 hour.

    I have the same problem, mainly because we have so much homework to do that there’s no time left to revise :-/ however I would recommend creating a revision timetable and planning out how long you’ll revise for so that there’s an end in sight while you do it. Also remember to include lots of 5-10 minute breaks and keep hydrated, it’ll help you to focus. Another solution is to see if you can stay after school somewhere and revise in a classroom. I do this with photography for around 4 hours a week and it really helps because it forces you to focus and you have the teachers aid if you need it.
    I originally did that for the whole of my subjects in January, but one amendment and missing day led to another and here I am. I don't find timetables to work for me, they're too restrictive.

    I'm certain that so-called 'study drugs' are not the answer.

    There is still a lot of time before the exams so there is absolutely no need to panic - lots of students are feeling the same way, especially as most teachers haven't finished teaching the course yet.

    Maybe start with setting yourself some easy short-term tasks e.g. learn one thing in half an hour, test yourself on it - enjoy the sense of satisfaction when you know that one thing.

    It's also helpful to talk things over - with teachers, friends, family - whatever works for you.

    Good luck!
    Too late - I bought them already. I don't get the satisfaction of learning one thing when that one thing is out of 500 other things I need to cover in less than 9 weeks.

    Build up to it. Revise short bouts of like 30 minutes every other day and build up until you form a habit.

    I planned to start revising in January...it's now nearly mid March and I still haven't started revising at all for my GCSEs which is a shame as I'm slumping and my grade in English and Maths is a 4...I just don't know what to do, I've been revising intermittently but not usefully and my brain doesn't even want to revise. I've tried everything, throwing my phone out my room and turning off the internet multiple times, but even then my brain will have lost the motivation to revise. As far as I'm concerned, my brain has stopped me from revising. I'm at my wit's end TSR, should I just try some study drugs or what
    I know your pain. I've struggled throughout my academic life with revision, but it's not impossible. I find studying to music really helps me. As a psychology student I can say that it is not the most effective technique for studying as it messes with your attention, but I always thought that some distracted study is better than nothing at all! You can get through it! Try to figure out when you best learn during the day. I find I'm most focused in the evening, so I would study from around 5pm - 12am or later. Again, not a recommended method, and I did become very sleep deprived... but what I am saying is that any way of studying is better than not studying at all. Also, mix it up. There's plenty of YouTube videos and interactive resources alongside just staring at your notes. You can do it, and you will get through it!
