    Heya, when I first got here at my sixth form I was doing good and was all up to date, but I just got back from a week long trip during term time for geography and now I find myself massively behind with nearly all my subjects, teachers seem to be on my back all the time, and I just got totally cast a cold shoulder by someone I thought was my friend! I'm so tired and starting to wonder if it's all worth it, which is worrying because up until now I have felt fine. Any advice you can give? Much appreciated xxx

    Motivation ebbs and flows within us all, if you have a large amount of course work, the tougher people will get it done even though they don't want to do it, the weaker ones will procrasinate and think about what they should be doing and feel bad for not doing it. Self-motivation will be the single largest factor in your life, there is only so much people can do for you. I noticed it was a big step up from lower ages of schooling when teachers would tell you what to do and help you with problems if you weren't working hard enough, once you reach this age if you fall behind no one will pick you up but yourself.

    I sympathise- at the moment I have French coursework to do plus lots of homework and revision for January exams, but I'm finding it really hard to motivate myself to actually do it, even though I really need to do well in the exams and I have a university offer to meet. What I find quite useful is to make a list of everything I have to do and tick things off as I go along. Sometimes you don't want to work because you have so much to do and you don't know where to start, but if you get organised it'll be easier and you'll feel better knowing you're getting through it.

    I have no issue with motivation as all the people in my classes are really competitive and people who do badly get the piss ripped out of them. Start a similar programme in your classes.

    I don't think that's true at all. All my teachers are always available to help out with any problems, and if we fall behind they help us get back on track.
