I don't know if it's just me, but I cannot find the effort or motivation to revise. I just try and avoid it and treat my mocks like they're not important (which they are). Damn bro school is hard

Do mini intensive crunches focusing on certain areas of a subject then reward yourself in some way, like a tv show episode and then crack on with more revision. You need to positively reinforcement your revision.

Hi there patriciaw19

I found revision was a lot easier once I learned a few techniques.

Study SMART Not Long: It's much easier to implement a regular and successful study schedule if you are studying SMART.
o Set yourself goals.
o Make study techniques that promote greater results.
o Ask for help.
o Reward yourself for progress.
o Take a Break.

S: Set yourself goals for study. For example, make up an exam/essay question and work towards answering it.
M: Remember VARK. Are you a Visual learner, Audio learner, Reading learner or Kinesthetic learner. Use study techniques that will promote the best learning for yourself. Once I learned which type of learner I was,this was the big point for me and made my revision a LOT easier!
A: If you are struggling with anything ask your teacher for help. Their job is to help you with your studies. Alternatively, use study guides or the internet to help breakdown tough subjects.
R: When you hit your goals, complete work and meet important deadlines reward yourself with treats. For example, make watching an episode of your favourite show your reward for completing tasks.
T: When you’ve finished studying take breaks. Go for a walk, hang with friends or get a cup of tea and watch TV. It’s important not to overdo revising.


I hope this helps!
