    Hi everyone, my exams are starting soon (first one is on the 2nd of May) and while I revised at the start of the easter holidays, I haven’t really done anything for about a week. I have depression and other anxiety issues that have gotten way worse recently and I know it’s not an excuse but I’m struggling to want to be alive so revising has been hard.

    My mum yelled at me for being lazy so I’m trying to revise now but I feel like the words are just slipping over my brain and not going in. My predicted grades are 99998A*765 but I know it’s unlikely that I will get those grades, I’m just hoping I pass them all at this point.

    Does anyone have any experience of revising with a mental illness? I don’t really know why I’m asking, I mainly just wanted to vent but if anyone has any tips that would be amazing

    I struggle with mental health issues (I find it hard to talk about so I won’t) and I find revision really hard, I recommend doing small chunks, take it 30mins at a time, and if you find that it’s really not working, just move on and revise a subject that you enjoy more, it will be a lot easier this way. Also watch YouTube videos, freesciencelessons is very good and it doesn’t feel like much work then.
    All the best 😊
