I'm the same. Sometimes I can revise and other I can't. It seems to be the nearer an exam the harder I find it to revise.

I think with me its a matter of motivation. If things start to go well then it helps a lot.

My advice would be to believe in yourself as that helps me. Increase your self esteem.

If you start revising and it doesn't go well the just stop! You are just waisting time and lowering you self esteem.

Also, say, "I'm going to revise at x o'clock and I will not give up until I have learned x, y and z." That tends to work with me (sometimes).


Good luck!

Sit down at your desk/floor/elephant and make sure you have every single thing you need for studying so that you're not tempted to go get something. Have a bottle of water/coke/sugar handy and something to eat.

Make sure you know exactly which bits you want to revise for (do the things you're worst at first). Do 10 mins of notes followed by 5 mins of questions (PastPapers). Repeat for another topic... take a break. Do the same twice more and voila, you've spent an hour studying.

Don't work late into the night and spend at least an hour or two studying, I wouldn't suggest any more for now.

I'm the same too. Always end up with unwanted scribbled masterpieces at the end of my revision time and very few words written down - the ones that are there, spelt incorrectly.

Take the good advice that has been given here - something I will need to do too!
