    uh I’m in year 10 but I revise for mocks etc I’d say set yourself something to do, let’s say you want to revise SB1 write a list of topics you need to cover, get home do 30/45 minutes then give yourself 30mins on the Xbox then do some more of your goal, and slowly increase the time your revising because it’s in 3 months :3

    You don't need to give xbox up completely, but you can do it as a reward. For every two hours you revise, you get 30 minutes gaming - something like that.
    You can also make revision a sort of game. It doesn't have to be boring. You can have friends over to study or try fun revision systems, like Seneca Learning. This website is great because it's full of gifs and funny videos and it's free!

    Hi there,

    At the end of the day, the question you've gotta ask yourself is how much do you want to succeed. I used to be quite a heavy gamer myself, but I made the decision to dedicate my time towards my studies. You don't have to completely give up gaming, but its not motivation you're after, it's self-discipline. Motivation is fleeting and can be affected by so much. Self-discipline doesn't care whether you feel like it or not, you get it done regardless. Create yourself a plan where you can still game, but revise as well. However, you've gotta stick to your plan, no matter how much you wanna game. You've gotta make the right choice for you. No one else can do that for you.
