Nah cause your actually so real for that, I tried to revise but I just had a nap
What topic are you currently revising? Could you switch to a topic that you enjoy more, or lock your phone away at home then revise at the Library? What are you doing for revision?

Perhaps try to switch up your revision techniques and subjects to keep things fresh

Ah that's unfortunate. I'm not sure I can give much advice except to push through the boredom and revise anyway. Maybe uninstall TikTok if it's distracting you too much, or see if your library has computers that you can use to revise so you're not distracted by your phone. Either way, best of Luck on Monday!

Do past papers if you have time as all you have to do is complete them, instead of organising actual revision like flashcards to do. Focus on areas that you particularly struggle on (which you may found out from past papers) as it will be time consuming and inefficient to revise everything.
I'm in year 12 right now and I got all 9-7 grades on my GCSEs (expect for Drama I got a 5 on my performance haha😬). If you don't like revising (who does) I recommend doing short bursts of revisions to start with (like 10 mins) and then gradually increasing the time you spend revising (like from 10 minutes to 15 minutes etc.). Honestly it takes willpower to revise, especially if your only revision is on a device, but wanting to do well should be good motivation.

I revised using past papers (for STEM subjects mainly). First I went over content for the subject, then I did the past paper and marked it. Any topic I struggled on I went on PMT and did all the topic questions on that topic, then just repeat this. I revised content using flashcards on anki; it's too late to start making your own if you haven't already so you can use someone else's flashcards (PMT and Quizlet are good too).

Best of luck for any exams :-)
