Take some time out to enjoy the holidays and not work. Even if for just a couple days. Recoup and rest your mind of worrying about revising. Then hopefully you can start revision again feeling refreshed and in a good place. Over time it can really tire you out and you lose motivation or ability to push yourself to do work :hugs:

Good luck!

I remember procrastinating for my A Levels and I failed them. I thought back and tried to discover WHY I procrastinated. The reason was I had an anxiety confronting content I wasn't familiar with/studied before and avoided it by making tiramisu or like walking to the park etc. Try to understand why you are procrastinating and understand if you DO procrastinate you wont get a decent grade. the content needs to be covered by you.

I find it incredibly difficult not to procrastinate when there is something I don't want to do. The best strategy I have is to set a small reward if I do something without procrastination. With regard to revision some form of timetable, the vision of the pleasure when the exams are successfully behind you and the fear of failure can also be used.

Try changing the way that you revise to make it more “fun”. There are a ton of online resources and videos out there that won’t take too much energy to check out. If you do even a tiny bit of revision, even five minutes per subject per day, you’ll feel so much better for it and find it easier to revise more if you’re doing something at least.
