The usual double use tool such as the knife for good or evil. There are huge number of invaluable resources on the net one example of many available for Maths is examsolutions.net and the BBC Bitesize revision guides. Of course you are aware of the parallel destructive and evil resources that exist that should be avoided. All the best for your exams and future. of course in parallel

Instead of stopping, how about viewing social media as something to look forward to? “I will do two/three hours of revision and then I get 30 minutes of social media as a reward because I deserve it.” Or perhaps even use your phone as a tool to help you revise rather than pen and paper? Turn off your Notifications so you can use it as a tool and not a phone. Also, how about using the alarm feature on your phone as a method of flashcard memorising? Getting an alarm everyday at 7.30pm telling you a Priestley quote will quickly embed it into your head. Furthermore, use your notepad on your phone as a way of testing your memorisation skills for info you need. Create a WhatsApp group for testing each other on quotes and get other people involved who will stay focused on only using the platform for studying. Don’t fight it, channel it into a positive. Technology is amazing.You’ll do great.
