I can't tell if I've been feeling burnt out or what but essentially, since September I've been revising super long hours and recently I can't seem to properly do any revision so Idk if I'm "burnt out" or if I'm being lazy

It won't be bad if you took a break for more than usual or took more breaks. You have a lot of time till you need to resit.

Hi rsidofdhoidsh!

If you have been revising for super long hours then it probably is burn out. Take breaks from time to time and make sure you are actually doing something that you enjoy in your breaks as this might help lift your motivation.
When revising maybe revise for 45 mins and then take a 10 minute break then repeat (or find out what times work best for you).
Also try different revision techniques which you don't normally use as this might help such as flash cards (my personal favourite), mind maps (stick them on the wall if possible), getting someone to test you (also my favourite), revising with a friend (try not to get distracted).

Hope this helps!
