Hello, the bulk of my exams are coming closer and closer and i feel that i'm not getting enough work done.

Does anyone have any tips on keeping concentration levels the same because i just get bored and lose motivation quickly.

I revise in 15 minute sections then test myself then repeat.

Any help is appreciated

If you are reading this then you are being distracted. Turning off computers and phones will really help you to concentrate on revision. I know its difficult, but it will really help in the long run when you get your results. Some people delete FB accounts and all of that, which also is a good investment. 

Another weird way of defying distraction is to have a sort of 'reward' near you when you work. Food and drink are good, because when you start loosing concentration, you can quickly re-boost yourself and i think it makes you happier as well.

good luck in all your exams

lots of breaks are good, it's proven that you learn more at the beginning and end of the revision sessions! if you get bored, you need to make your revision more interesting so be creative with it so more will stick in your memory because you enjoy doing it :) x

I feel the same way, all my friends are revising 24/7 whereas i'm taking a much more relaxed approach though my GCSEs start on mon!.However  the thing the motivates me to work is imagining getting the A*s and the amazing feeling that comes with it. Also for revision for boring things to me, like bio, i draw fun diagrams and make Powerpoints instead of just reading the book

your technique is very good

if you are finding it hard to concentrate make sure u are working in a quiet place; late at night is a good time if you catch up on some sleep during the day and or go to a library really early and leave when it gets really noisy

Don't just sit at a desk and write notes (unless you enjoy this). Get up and walk around the room while speaking outloud about the facts you have just read. Use colour and pictures and if you're creative, try to make a short film. Also, try to work on a large scale with A3 sheets of paper and white boards (many stationary shops sell whiteboards cheaply).

Revise for shot periods of time then get away from your revision area and do some star jumps , or anything else this will help the imformation be remembered better. Good luck
