    Get someone like your mother to take away everything from you that would be a source of "fun" to you, i.e. video games, computers etc. You will only be given it back when you have done your study. Since your stuff is taken from you then you have no chance but to study.

    If you've been getting consistent B's,I'd keep going with what you were doing.Our science mocks,for example,were corrected by someone just looking to take marks from us. Answers that were even in the official JC marking scheme weren't given any marks! So you could have just had bad luck with markers

    If you could get a revise wise book they are very good.

    do exam papers and give it too your teacher to correct,this will show areas your lacking in and need to improve at.:D

    Well, I definetly relate to your story, I was always an a or b student but in the mocks I got a good few c's. But I wouldnt worry about that because I've been told and I've noticed that the mocks are alot harder than the actual thing.
    As for studying what I'm doing is taking 1-2 subjects a day and doing out notes for myself. It takes a lot of effort, but I do it on the computer and I find it easy enough. I usually play music without words, maybe the score from your favourite movie or something. Make sure that you dont have a tv on, that seriously affects me.
    Then the night before the exams Im taking my notes and revising. I have notes for Maths, Irish and Geography if you want them ? That should help you catch up a bit

    When you go into the exams, make sure you read the question properly. A silly number of people lose marks because they do not read the questions/instructions properly.
