    I'm finding it so flipping hand to motivate myself.
    Any ideas? :/
    I don't mind doing maths, like, at all, so at least one thing's good, I suppose. But a string of bad essays in economics and not really knowing how to fix it really knocks your confidence and now I have no motivation to do any work. And I just flipping hate biology more than any other subject that's ever existed because it's so boring!

    Any ideas on how to fix, or am I just completely screwed, guys? :/
    It's just, I've decided that I'm probably going to firm AR and I really want to get in.
    Haha there's alot of Biology in Optometry so you should start forcing yourself to like it!
    Just take it easy, take regular breaks and think of the summer
    Im finding it hard to motivate myself too. Revision depresses me so much

    I know. I don't mind the tiny bit of stuff we do about the eye though - I really quite enjoyed the whole genetics of colourblindness and rod/cone cell stuff. I just hate ecology with a passion. And all the boring DNA stuff. Bleh.

    Hehe your actually lucky you even study the eye at A level! Which board are you? I did OCR, and gosh so boring. Yeah ecology is just depressing. Where did i actually get the will power to sit hours on end revising hedgehogs?
    It'll be worth it though so just keep at it!
    and the content at uni is much more so make the most of A levels. There's just alot of pressure for you right now because of uni but at uni the content is ALOT more!
    good luck

    I'm on AQA. We don't do loads - maybe two pages in the textbook - but knowing more than the teacher was rather fun.

    Yeah... I'm not worried about extra content or more work because I think I'll enjoy it more than A-levels tbh.

    Omg !!!! Finally got an offer from Cali
    Sooooooooo happy ! So surprised as they only conditioned me an int. 2 A, and absolutely no mention of any highers or advanced highers.

    I now have so much motivation and hopefully I'll get to study at Cali come September

    Anyone else heard back yet? Gd luck to everyone who applied hope that you got offers you are happy with xxxxxxx

    Why would you be worried? There's no need since no-one has posted here yet (aside from hannah) that they have one.

    Congrats! I haven't heard back yet, not holding out much hope since their typical A-level offer is AAB and I'm only predicted ABB...

    Sounds like they're giving Scottish offers before A-level offers then?
