It’s April and teachers are counting down the days till your first exam currently it’s standing at 4 weeks to go. Our school even provides us with an Easter break revision goal of 50 hours… ahhhh help!
Here are a couple of ways that I motivate myself to revise and how I do it but there are many days I don’t stick to schedule- let’s face it revision is boring and a chore.
Before I revise I always have the vision of why I have to do this revision. For me it’s to have the grades to be able to do my dream job of becoming a vet, so for you it could be a career plan your thinking of or maybe if you haven’t got a job in mind, the goal is just to not close the gates on any opportunities in your future.
The other thing I keep in mind is the long summer after!y friends and I have made sure to fill the summer with as many plans as possible and we always talk about how amazing it will be.
I also keep a study schedule of what I’m going to study each day; I keep this specific so I know exactly what I need to do. For example; say I was studying Romeo and Juliet I would also write down ‘make mindmaps of the characters’. This helps me keep motivated because it’s really satisfying ticking all the sessions off when you’ve done them and it means I know what I have to do in advance.
Many people say new stationary helps them to stay motivated which works for a lot of people but for me it doesn’t work that well a few highlighters and paper are all I actually need to use to revise.
I hope these tips help you stay motivated to revise for the dreaded exam season, if you have any other tips I would love to hear them! Just leave a comment below
