    I really want to do well in my A-levels so I can go to Northumbria uni, I don't really have a life plan, just Northumbria is the next step. Revision doesn't work for me AT ALL, idk if i'm just stupid or what it is but i cannot do it. I've also lost all dedication to trying in college, a lot is going on rn, and i don't really have the work ethic to apply myself. any tips? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Volunteer. You'll figure out what you want to do. Go to Africa or someplace.

    just think to yourself what if everything works out and goes better than I thought it would rather than thinking what if I fail, this would motivate you to do anything in your power to achieve what you want to. nothing is impossible literally there is not one good enough reason why you shouldn't be able to do the things you want to and achieve the things you want to

    You gotta do exam-style questions and past papers, assuming you're not only doing essay-based subjects

    It's great to hear that you'd like Northumbria to be your next step

    One of our student bloggers has recently uploaded an article on exam hints & tips which you can find here

    It can be difficult to revise for exams (especially when you have a number of them in a short space of time). I was in a similar situation during my A-levels & would struggle to retain the information I needed (usually remembering the most pointless facts that were definitely not needed in the exam). What helped me was getting more sleep & drinking more water. I used to drink no more than a glass of water a day and found it hard to concentrate, when I increased my intake to roughly 1.5 litres a day I found it easier to concentrate. Likewise with sleep, when I started going to bed a little earlier I felt more productive throughout the day.
    This in turn helped when I was doing revision. One other tip would be to find out what your prefered learning style is. I do well when I listen to people so I would record certain aspects of my lessons (with permission of course) and play this back to help retain the info.

    I have also come across a previous article on our blog but the tips are still great! take a look here

    Take a look at the articles I have included here & get back to me if you have any questions. I hope this helps
