I've got five exams in one week, one on each day. I have barely revised for them, and i suffer from anxiety, so i think that's the reason why i've been putting it off. Whenever i think about exams i get nervous. But i know i need to revise, but i just don't know how. I really want, and need, to get good grades on these tests, so if anyone knows any ways i can do so(revision tips) then it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I agree with @Thelovelybones. I always have a bag of jellytots before and after and exam just as a bit of fun motivation...

In terms of revision find out what kind of learner you are. You can do this by taking this quiz: http://www.youthink.com/quiz.cfm?action=go_detail&obj_id=598&filter=popular&time_span=latest.

If you're a visual learner use lots of colour (mindmaps, posters,revision cards e.t.c.) , if you're audio record yourself or a friend/ family member reading the information out and then listen to it again and again and if you're a kinaesthetic do some more hands on activities (squeeze a stressball, walk around whilst reading, try and teach others what you know).

Try and make a timetable as well so that you know what you need to cover by when but plan in a lot of breaks (my teacher reccomends every 1/2 hour or so) and fun time (go out with friends e.t.c.).Making a timetable also makes it seem a bit more important and official... 

I'm a bit like you and get really nervous revising and taking exams so I find the best way to keep calm is to make it fun (don't just read from a textbook). When revising I treat myself with a biscuit if a get a topic done and dusted. That keeps you fun and motivated! Also just try to revise without thinking about the exam, I know that it sounds a bit crazy but pretend that you are learnign the information again without the major exam at the end of it (some teachers don't agree but I've done it before and foudn that it does help with the nerves/ anxiety e.t.c.)

I wish you all the best with your exams and hope that this does help.

Good luck!! **

Start revising. Now! The best you can do is calm yourself down, think of a treat for yourself after each exam and make something to look forward to completely.

If revision is stressfull- break it down into small chunks and don't beat yourself up if you have a lot left, if you study with a dedicated mind, you will get there!

Make revision notes in which you would find interested to revise from. For example, doing mind maps and adding colour and images make my revision more interesting.
