I'm in year 11 now and I'm doing my GCSEs this year so I really need to buckle down. Before an exam, I always tell myself "I'll start revising two weeks early" but then I end up either not revising at all or just revision the night before. I'm telling myself this year that I seriously do need to revise but I don't trust myself to actually do it. Does anyone have any advice?

I know its cliche and all that but seriously where do you see yourself in 5 years time if you were to keep procrastinating...do you like what you see, if not I suggest seriously to really organise yourself and get your **it together, coming from someone who regrets not doing this for my GCSE's and still having regrets about not reaching my potential, it sucks but I can't do anything about that now but you still have time to turn this around and change your future, I really hope you find a way to motivate yourself because dude, you only have one life, why waste it...my PM's are open if you want to discuss this further!

I don't mean this in a mean way just so you know, please don't take this offensively in any way...

Hi jaxp

I find that it's harder starting then actually doing the work. So, try and and do a little revision even if it's 5 minutes, then once you have started you may be able to do more.

You could also try different study apps, for example I downloaded one which would not let me go on other apps on my phone for 15 minutes.

I hope this helps and good luck!
