Revision is hard :( GyG Watch
Hello there and welcome to my first GyG blog (and yes I had to add him cuz why not??)
As you can tell by the title, me + revising= total nightmare
The thing is, I don't know how to revise or what to revise on so I start procrastinating and end up doing barely any revision or my upcoming exams. This then makes me stressful because I have to cram all that info on the day of the exam like a couple hours before it.
So I try to "motivate" myself or plan out how or what I revise. I listen to music(yes, music not classical but pop), I plan out how long I study and how long my break should be, I have even watched motivational videos but I still somehow can't be asked to get my lazy butt up and into a chair and to start revising.
Recently(possibly like an hour ago), I ordered these self-adhesive cork boards and I thought they might help me out because I can out hem wherever I want and I can put whatever I want on it.
Don't even get me started about grades, my mum expects my grades to have risen by at least a quarter. So say I got 25/45, she expects me to have at least 32 or something. And boy oh boy, she wasn't pleased with my exam results but I would say they are ok!
I will keep you updated on how my revision is going but until then, thanks for listening and hope you feel sorr- I mean hope you feel "educated".
(P.S we love a good centre text)
PS I strongly suggest two changes:
1. Don’t listen to pop music. Pre-exam season I switched to classical music and my focus improved a fair bit.
2. Don’t waste too much time planning. And don’t plan breaks. Don’t say “I’ll do an hour of maths then have a break.” Instead, say “I need to get through these past questions on circle theorems and trigonometry, which should take an hour, but if it takes longer I won’t have a break until I’m finished.” This way you might be able to get tasks done rather than superficial revision.
