Just keep positive all the time and talk to your self saying in your mind " I can do it." Trust me the main way to succeed in an exam is to be confident always.
keep positive and imagine your reuslt sheet in August with loads of A*s. whenever i think about that, i feel happy and so i will try and work harder in order to get IT
stick a piece of paper up on the wall infront of me
"Kings: AAA or your f*cked for life!"
I basically think of how me sacrificing a few hours of my time revising pays off.
Once I've got the grades I want, I'll be able to chill out and relax - so it'll be worthwhile buckling down now.
If you don't believe in yourself, you won't get anywhere.
Don't be discouraged, I'm sorry - but even naturally intelligent people have their limits.
When it comes down to it - revision is the only way you'll be able to know what you're doing.
I was also 6 marks off an A* in physics unit 2, I wasn't too put off since I'm not taking it as an A Level. xD
I think about what the grades will mean to me. Your GCSEs/A levels will stay with you forever, so that motivates me to do well. Similarly I think about results day and think how I will feel if i get bad grades.
Other than that I look forward to the summer, think to myself, for 2 hard weeks of work now I'll have 2months of amazing fun in the summer.
On that note I suppose I should get back to revision! haha
i motivate myself by thinking that if i do well in my GCSEs then ill do well in my A-Levels and then ill get into a good university and get to do the job i want to do.
