honestly I just imagine how proud I would be and my family would be if I do really well and to do that you need to revise. Or you could you know.... do the opposite and imagine the disappointment when you get bad grades

I think everyone loses focus in revision since it's just so BORING so maybe you can make it more fun for yourself you can listen to music while you're revising or make posters or flashcards or if your trying to memorise something you can try making a song out of it to help you remember.
Make sure you take 5-10 minute breaks and to maybe keep your mind into it you can reward yourself for revising every 15-20 minutes perhaps? Also, if you're finding it too boring on your own you can revise with friends and test each other then you can go on revision breaks together a way to maybe help is to switch off your phone or any other devices until you're done revising i know this may be hard to resist your temptations but just hang in there you've got the willpower!
Hope this helped x

maybe you should try watching a study with me??? i watch unjaded jades study with me's and they are SO so helpful!!! it sounds stupid but having someone "revise" with you is really motivating.. everytime i think about going downstairs i look up at the laptop screen and see her working away so i feel like i have to as well! they're about 1-2 hours long so you can get a lot of work done what i also find helpful is cleaning my desk as i find having a clearer work space makes me feel motivated, i only out the resources for the tasks I'm doing on my desk, e.g if I'm doing maths revision i will only have my pencil and maths book out so that way i can focus on the task completely

Yeah that can be true but what i mean is don't listen to pop songs just music you can find loads of "revision music" on youtube it can be quite soothing and help you focus or maybe not listen to anything if you get distracted

I feel like this depends on the person. For me, music helps me to be so much more productive when working, as long as it doesn't have lyrics so I can't sing along. I've found so many good "chill mixes" on YouTube that are usually around an hour long, and I use these as a revision timer as well as a 'productivity booster'.
