    I screwed up my GCSEs and got kicked out of my A level mainly because I always found something more worth MY time, ie Playing my Xbox, faffing round on the internet etc.

    Now I'm in uni and I really, really want to try and be able to do this without being lazy, distracted or putting things off.

    Shouldn't the fact that you're restarting a whole year kick you into action?!

    I'm in your shoes myself. Basically, just set yourself a goal, and keep. On. At. It.

    Yeah, I feel unmotivated too, a lot of the time. But I remember what I'm trying to achieve, and that makes me do 3 hours of revision a night.
    Yes, I suppose I that's right

    Write a list of things you have to do the day before so that you have something to aim for everyday.

    If you go on fb a lot, maybe there is some facebook limiter software?

    Get a hobby that can really give you a passion and drive.

    Do a jog that will increase your energy levels =)

    Eat lots of sugar and go outside =D
    I'll try..providing I don't procrastinate

    I'm the same. My results definitely don't reflect my intelligence and its because I procrastinate SO much. Like seriously nobody can beat me with procrastination. I would sometimes go my homework not the night before the day it was due...but 5 minutes before the lesson was about to begin!! And only because the teacher is scary. And don't get me started on how late I revised for exams (Sometimes at 11pm day before exam and somehow still managed to do good- serious luck right there or maybe I'm just good at learning things in short periods of time?!). I know that If I worked consistently I would probably achieve greater things but oh well thats life :P Its really bad surely it should be a medical illness ! And I used to be organised when I was young which makes it worse
    Believe me dear you can't be worse than me, I clean up the whole house, try to find a job, even sweep the piece of land in front of me house, before I get to revising.

    looool. I spent all of last year preparing for uni (personal statement, paid job, voluntary jobs, deciding what uni to pick etc etc etc) and I ended up with failure written across my head!
