Realising that I have to go back to school and revise and then do GCSEs and then A levels and then…

Hi guys! I’m back from a wild week in the Alps terrifying myself on skis. And now that I am back, there’s only today left until school. And school means not just working in that 6 hours, but also full-steam-ahead on the extra revision. I did zero in the holidays (despite ominous warnings from my teachers) so I feel like I really need to start now.

And the thing is, I really hate revision. When I was younger I despised homework, but revision is SO MUCH WORSE.

It’s a bottomless pit of textbooks, videos and coloured highlighters. A pit that I’m about to fall down, and then when do I stop? This is how I see it happening:

Now: revise for GCSEs.

1 year: revise for one AS, whilst also keeping on top of 3 A levels.


3 years + : university, and all the stressful revision it brings with it.

And I’m thinking (obvs not definite but if I had to choose right now) medicine at uni. So that’s like a really long difficult full-time course, which requires horribly high A level results. Why?!

In conclusion: I’m petrified for the future! I don’t know if I can handle the revision spiral. More than that, I REALLY DON’T WANT TO!

  1. Ahhhh! I can relate so so so much! I’m an IGCSE student too & the amount of studying and practicing I have to do is really stressful – especially that I’m taking 8 subjects! My exams are next May and I’m like so scared – do they not realise how much pressure they’re putting on us? Good luck with your revision & I wish you all the best! Stay motivated & Be productive! 🙂 🙂

  2. You’re right. Teachers can often be quite narrow minded and forget that you have lots of other subjects to revise for. That’s why I think you have to be smart and work out exactly what the examiner wants. I’ll outline some ideas on this in my blog over the coming weeks. Good luck all!
