    I have seven weeks till my uni exams. I have wasted the last 2 weeks of my hols. I start back next week. I am too SCARED to face my work. I am avoiding it like the plague. I am doing everything I can to avoid it. I feel like it's already a lost cause. I have spent so much time on Facebook you would not believe. My sleeping patters are messed up. I feel that there's no point.

    Haha, I kinda know what you mean.

    I'm supposed to start work for my January modules but I don't even know where to start.

    I've been doing the exact same, but I can't revise without my social life intact such as Facebook. So that way I get distracted too easily, but as long as it keeps me happy, i'll let it distract me for some hours and then...back to revision again.

    maybe getting someone to change your facebook password is the only way.

    The longer you put it off the worse it'll end up being when you actually have to start it. Just deactivate facebook and start immediately.

    Well, avoiding work when you have to do work makes perfect sense.

    Haha, i think you have just described my life apart from the fact my exams are far off uni exams. I just can't face the texts books, then at night I'll think to myself, 'okay i have alot of revising to do so in the morning i'll have to start cramming it all in' BUT late nights+early mornings+laziness= NO REVISION

    work in the library or a coffee shop. there is no exam that can't be passed with 4-6 weeks' hard work. think how relieved you'll feel when you actually start revising.

    delete your facebook

    start work right now. start anywhere - starting something now, 7 weeks away, is better than doing nothing?

    tbh, you can get a lot done in 7 weeks. i don't know what you're stressing about........ think of how you'll feel 4 weeks from now if you carry on this way.. you'll be wishing for 7 weeks.

    Seven weeks? You have another 6 weeks to go before you should be getting the fear.

    work harder. most people have had multiple exams within a few days of each other.

    You have a simple choice: either don't work, in which case you'll fail, or work in which case you may well do fine. it's your choice.

    my point was to put yourself in an environment where there are fewer displacement activities available. burying your head in the sand is not an effective method of decreasing exam nerves.
