Just remember your end goal and what you want to achieve want the exam results. Build up the amount of time you spend doing revision each day, maybe start with an hour or two and build up the time from there each day. Music also helps me when i revise, i find it alot less boring. Just dont go near facebook!!! Biggest regret from GCSE revision.. hope that helps!

i find it really hard to remember to revise too, but ive made a timetable by myself (not using the one on here as it fills up all of your time and it really freaks me out that i'd be doing nothing but revision!!) ive set an alarm on my phone at about 9:30 and do about 20 mins a night then, just so that i get some in. Sometimes i think nah cba and when i do that i highlight my timetable to show that i havent done any of that subject. If i end up with too many 'misses' on one subject i'll do that the next day rather than sticking to the table.

I chucked the revision timetable; never useful for me as I won't end up following it. What I did last year and this year was to write out a list of what revision I'd aim to do before my exams so I'd feel prepared, for example:


- make notes on graph transformations, logs and arithmetic progressions

- complete all past papers


- write notes on Napoleon

- plan essay questions

- read section c of the textbook

etc. etc.

Then you can glance at your list and it gives you a good idea of what you've got left to do.  Then if you feel like it some days you can spend a whole day on one subject whereas other days you can really divide up your time, depending on what you feel like doing; that's much more effective. Main thing is to try and balance it a bit though so you don't get absorbed in, say, Chemistry for four days and then you haven't done enough revision for everything else. But if you try to tick off the points on your list in fairly equal proportions you ought to be fine - I found it worked for me! :D

I used to have the same problem. I leave a pile of work that i need to do and throughout the day i will go to it because i don't like seeing things pile up. Just make sure your motivated-put a bar of chocolate next to work you really need to do, then do the work and treat yourself. Soon you'll get in to the habit of just doing the work without hesistation. : ) Don't panic though. Trust me, I'm an anxious bundle of nerves, just try and stay calm and think of the reward at the end of all this! :) :)
