in some me time too.

#3 Focus on English and maths

Whether you're going to college, sixth form or going into work after you finish school these qualifications are vital for your next steps. They might not be your favourite subjects but getting a grade 9 to 4 this year will open up so many opportunities in the future.

Post-it notes can be easy to memorise. Stick them up around the house where you walk about on your morning and evening routines.

Take short breaks, but not too many! About 10 minutes every hour will help keep your brain
fresh and engaged.

Don't just read your notes – by writing them out you'll give your brain another opportunity
to remember what you're revising.

Eat healthy food, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly to keep you in tip-top condition for revising.
