Hey guys, I just wanted to talk about revision. I have had my mocks this week and I struggled a lot with revision, with some subjects I didn't even revise for. But usually without revision I tend to get good grades anyways. I procrastinate a lot and find it hard to focus at home. Also I do not know how to revise, I have made flashcards, mind maps, made notes, watch videos but nothing helps me to understand things. How do you guys revise and stop yourselves from procrastinating for hours? Anyone else going through the same phase?

So revision is a very I individual process (I know, you've probably heard that a lot) so you need to find what works. Personally, flashcards and exam questions helped me revise. If I was procrastinating, I used an app called Flora. It essentially grows a little tree on your phone in the time you want to revise. I know that helped for quite a few of my friends as well. Apparently putting your phone on aeroplane mode also helps to prevent you going on your phone. Don't worry - I think everyone has a phase where they really don't want to revise and so procrastinate. Hope this helps!

No problem! Feel free to dm me if you have any more questions (I've recently started year 12 so I can help on a decent amount of GCSE stuff)
