    I have an offer from a good university for 2012/2013 and have to get high grades to get in. Even though I am excited to go, I'm not going to get in unless I find some motivation to revise!

    I get annoyed at myself when I waste a day not revising and then promise to do lots the next day. It never happens and its so annoying!

    How do you motivate yourself to do it? Need some ideas asap

    English lit, History, Psychology and English Lang. What about you ?

    Will (hopefully) be going to Bristol but I won't be the way it's going! I need AAA too and its manageable for me if I just revised :/ I go through phases where I'm really motivated and others where I just want to laze around all day -.-

    You can always get away with it at AS as you have plenty of time to resit

    Eurgh, Biology, you're brave! I'm nervous because we can't resit the next ones if we mess up that's uni out of the picture for 2012 entry anyway :/ it seems to take forever to revise one part of a subject then I realise how much more is left and just give up

    I'm hoping that in uni I will be more enthusiastic because I'll be doing the subject I want to do? Is this true or not? :/
