So there are a lot of us in this boat but we have a choice - we can forever dwell in our never-ending suckiness or we can start the climb to better grades! Stop procrastinating - is it really worth getting **** grades? Really?

What if you don't get **** grades though? I've done this all through school and uni and it's been fine. This is why I can't get motivated until the last minute - because I know I don't have to. I suspect this is the same for a lot of people on here.

Definitely. I don't understand why I haven't used this time effectively because I know how disappointed I'm going to be on results day if I don't get the grades I want. Also, my Spanish oral exam is this Wednesday and I haven't revised thoroughly/properly for it which is just ridiculous considering I want to do a degree in it and won't be able to if I don't do well in this! It's not that I don't like it, I just can't concentrate/bring myself to sit at my desk and go over stuff I've already learnt once before.
The weird thing is that for GCSEs/AS I was so self disciplined and forced myself to revise in 40 minute blocks, then I'd have a 10 minute break and start again, and this routine lasted for weeks and I really felt prepared for my exams. Now, when it matters more than ever, I just waste time doing stupid things/staying in bed until stupid times.

I've had 3 weeks of holidays yet have done practically nothing, disappointed doesn't even cover it to be honest.

Anyone else? Maybe we can all yell at each other to stop letting ourselves down and start revising?
Disappointed because I know I could have done better than I did in exams despite the amount of revision I did... it's always "I could have done more". :sad:

Yes! The first week started off ok, then from there I did nothing and was forced to wake up extra early today just to do an essay that was due in today , not a good start. I'm just lacking the motivation knowing there's just too much to possibly remember for all my exams!

I have the opinion that it's always **** if you haven't achieved your best

Yeah, definitely this. But I also waste a hell of a lot of time!

What if you get firsts whilst still doing little work/leaving work til the last minute? Some people just don't need to do a lot of work to succeed. It's quality not quantity of revision that's most important.

I do that but I could still do better. And some revision is always better than none

I know what you mean but a first's a first. Of course there is the personal satisfaction of achieving your very best, but for most people it's not worth it.

you're not the only one, but today I did get an A on a chemistry past paper (I'd have been happy with a C) I didn't think i'd done that much revision for it. I think what msut have happened is like last year at GCSE, I failed the chemistry mock but ended up with an A* overall cos i buckled down and got on with it, and this January I got an E so ever since results day I've been working a lot harder for it. BUT I've done ahrdly anything for geography and last year I did the same cos I thought I'd easily get an A* (c/w was 100%) and ended up with a B which means i probably got a C on the exam, so i need to start buckling down with that and maths and biology aswell
