My first exam is the week we come back from the Easter holidays so i really do need to revise! i know most of the course and I've been predicted a B in it, but i really can't be bothered! I've revised for 2 hours today making basic notes and summarising each topic, i want to do past papers but it's such hassle marking them yourself (i'm so so bad at marking things ahhaha) so i normally send the paper away to my teachers but i don't want to bother them as of course there on holiday as well.

I really really want to get a B but i don't know how to, continue with the 2 hours revision every day or push harder and try and get some past papers done?

Any help is much appreciated

I say don't go full out till the week before the holidays end, otherwise you might burn out (like me with my coursework T^T)

There's plenty time don't panic, you should try even out your revision amongst all your subjects don't just focus on the first one. I've only just started properly revising now and my first one is in 24 days and some people may think I started late and I agree. However, there's still time in which you can gain much more knowledge on the subject, use active recall.

Whether 2 hours a day is or isn't enough is quite subjective, as it really depends how well you use those two hours, and how much you still need to revise to get the grades you want.

It sounds a bit like you've become a bit bored of your current method of revising, so it could be time to try something else in between past papers (as these are pretty important at this stage!)? When it comes to the past papers, is there someone else you'd be able to work with to complete them? Maybe a friend or family member who can help check the answers for you, and you do the same back, so it helps both of you revise? Not sure which subject this is for, so that might be easier said than done!
Hope your exams go well

Yeah, it's not the most exciting thing to be doing! It will all be done in a few weeks though, or for another year at least! You can do it!

push harder. dont listen to people telling you to slack. keep yourself motivated by having your goals clearly set out: which uni you wanna go to, what grades you want, why youre even studying etc.

I've had hardly any motivation this year, I've been doing 5 Highers which has made me have no social life for the past month or so in terms of revision. It's taking its toll on me but I can't wait until they're over.

It might be worth taking some time away from revision- even if you study in the morning, and just take a few hours to do something you enjoy in the afternoon. Although exams are close, the next 5/6 weeks can be pretty intense, so it's important to make sure you aren't neglecting other important parts of your life

Glad to hear this Taking a break might seem counterproductive but it is almost always the opposite!
