Use Seneca, it's really good for revision and has great incentives.

if your mocks are in 4 weeks i think thats enough time to prepare and plan now!
make a revision timetable and space out your subjects and STICK TO IT! in order to be consistent, if you have trouble doing that give yourself 10 minute breaks in between revision sessions by rewarding yourself with something nice
i think this is great time to implement spaced repetiton and active recall, so what i mean by this is, revise a topic using active recall one day then cover it again the next day then in a few days then next week and so on. this will help improve your memory and strengthen those neural connections!
make sure you pay attention to areas you find hard by printing off the specification and going through which topics youre most weaker on and focusing on them a bit more and of course utilise practice papers and make sure you do plenty and dont forget to look at the mark scheme after youre done to see what areas you need to improve on
hope this helps also what subjects are you doing?

Spaced revision is definitely the key! If you're really struggling for motivation then classical condition yourself to enjoy it! for example, reward yourself with something you wouldn't usually do but really enjoy! But most importantly, do not give yourself the reward until you've completed the revision that you've told yourself. Another thing i would recommend is making sure you have a specified revision space which you do not do other activities at (e.g., don't revise in your bed because you have learnt associate your bed with sleep OR you will condition yourself to be stressed in your bed). If you're like me and can't do anything in silence, listen to some lofi music on youtube! It's really helpful!

Another great thing if you're really struggling for motivation is to join the study with me live streams on TikTok! I find these super helpful!

In terms of actually revising, I recommend using quizlet (you can find pre-made sets by other people if you feel it's too late to make you're own!

Trust me, you have time and you have got this!

I have the same issue but did my mocks for the past 2 weeks
Starting is the hardest
So first don't overwhelm yourself thinking about the future and how much work u have to revise
just focus on what u can do now
Like split your day up into revising 2 subjects e.g. 1hr and 30 mins each with breaks in between
Focus on the hardest topics yk u don't remember anything in

keep on top of what you do in class as you go along
do Past paper questions frequently - you'll find a pattern for answering questions in the markscheme
