I pretty much winged my GCSEs and got mostly Bs with an A and a couple of Cs (I don't even know how I got Cs in computer science and Spanish lol I should've got Us coz I can't code to save my life and I can speak very little Spanish). Anyway, I'm on my second year of A-levels and I'm in trouble. I've never had to revise much before to achieve the results I wanted but now I'm stuck because I can't revise. It's the worst thing ever, I'd rather sit in a chair doing nothing than revise. My parents have tried taking away distractions in an attempt to make me revise but it hasn't worked. I have huge ambitions and dreams but they can't be achieved without studying. Please help me. Please.

Have you tried small things like using classical music whilst studying. This is quite cheesy but before I revise sometimes I play motivational videos to get me in the mood lol. Also, take regular breaks and maybe try going for a walk or doing some exercise before sitting down to revise

well, you have to want to study to study..simple. Think about your goals and ambitions and maybe that’ll motivate you. Just start small. Maybe doing 30-40 minutes then you can work up to doing more hours. Try to make revision fun and not like a chore. Watch some revision videos relevant to what you’re studying. Etc

Studying is 10% motivation, 90% discipline. You cant rely on motivation alone to study. You have to be disciplined, as in make a study schedual and follow it. When you are studying turn off the phone and don't touch it till you finish.

Maybe first find out what kind of learner you are. Visual, Auditory, or Kinesthetic (doing). http://www.educationplanner.org/stud...les-quiz.shtml. Exercise can help you study https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/...s-201404097110. Taking short breaks every so often will help you retain the infomation better and rest your brain. Teaching somebody is a very good way to study, seeing as you need to know the content to be able to teach it. In the end find what method is best suited for you. Research.
