revision

i'm taking english language,business and law at a levels and I haven't started properly revising yet and my first exam is a month away and my other exams are just days in between... i'm scared that i've left it too late but i worry about failing rather than revising as i find it hard to get motivation or how to effectively revise without it feeling like a waste of time, any tips,tecniques or sites would be so usefull as i need A,B,B minimum.
The only essay based subject I do is RS - I usually make a mind map for each topic, then make flashcards from the mind map, make essay plans and write practise essays. I'm not sure how helpful this will be, but it is the only information I can really give.
seneca learning has lots of good free A level courses, you could have a look if there's anything for your subjects?

any tips?

1) delete most of your social media, I got rid of video games, tiktok ect, change the password if necessary and do not save it, so if you want to re-download it you will have to go through the hassle of resetting the password, which should deter you.
2) Download a revision app like flora, when I pick up my phone whilst revising, and it says app locked, i always put it down.
3)Find an organisation system, whenever i used to revise one topic my desk would be a mess and it ****ed me off, so i would avoid it.
4)Plan your week ahead, including what your actually revising, i used to just put “revise english“ and i’d have no idea what i would be doing when it came to doing it.
5)Lastly humble yourself, the reason you procrastinate is you believe that your a special rainbow and your employer will just pick you cos ur special even if ur grades aren’t there, and that’s a lie, there’s someone working harder than you right now, why on earth would they chose someone who cant even revise.

Hey dude sorry for the late reply! Currently I’m stressed, but only doing 1-2 hours of revision a day. My tip is to download flora. Then for the actual revision, start doing practice papers, but use your notes. That way you can learn and develop exam technique. Soon you will use your notes less and less

i can somewhat relate I do business too, haven’t revised enough but what’s helpful and quick is if you haven’t already, spend a day or two making mind maps then the rest of the days till your exam going through a full paper and just continue with exam questions. Refer to the mind maps if you can’t answer them blurt the topics and use Seneca then go back to them.
