    For some reason I can NEVER get down to work for exams...mixture of laziness, fear perfectionism, OCD and disorganisation but I am fed up! I had to walk into my uni exam today with no knowledge and I was so angry at myself especially when I saw that the questions weren't even that bad had I done the work. Argh

    Set yourself a structured reward system for revision. Simplest way to con yourself into doing something you don't want to do.

    Organisation is key, you've done one of the harder parts by successfully getting into uni! Don't throw it all away now especially as it is very expensive and you won't get many chances to try again.

    Set yourself time to do revision and preparation and try not to get distracted - it's hard and you can feel very anxious that time is slipping away but you can do something about it, it's down to you to get the knowledge in and try your best.

    Why bother going to uni and paying loads if you cant be bothered to do the work to get a decent degree?

    Sort your head out, dear me.
