    Study........study helps learning and your revision.

    I find it helps when you have set goals and deadlines for yourself to do 'a little bit at a time' even if when you start to study after your holiday break if it is only for a hour or so then build upon that. Once you see the positives in each study session you will hopefully come to the realisation that without it...*insert doomed music* your results will not what you can achieve.

    Study as much as must if not all students despise it is a necessary evil in school success!

    Committing myself to study is easy once you fail some important exams and realise if you neglect your study further you may fail the year. Basically you need to find your own reasons for studying and something to reward you at the end of a good studying session.

    work either very early in the morning or very late at night (like I'm doing right now). Seriously all the distractions disappear (except TSR) and you will get loads done

    Do half an hour or an hour every day of the holiday. Much better than waking up and thinking 'oh **** I've set myself 10 hours of physics to do today, hmmmmmmmmm' and ending up with nothing at all.

    Yes. I fall into that trap too. I plan to dedicate my entire day to studying maths, and only end up stressing about it, and not actually doing anything.

    Definitely start small, and work your way up when you get the confidence. But at this stage of the game, maybe a massive shock is what you need lol.

    my parents cut off cable and made threats on my cell phone in order to get me to study - sacrifice and then reward is the idea

    Wow. That's scary! Is it working with you? What kind of threats tho?

    If I didn't study my parents wouldn't say anything... I need to motivate myself.....They just keep saying: "it will all be over soon"..

    :eek: :eek: :eek: Now THAT is extreme!!! I don't think I could do that to myself; I'd go insane! My parents think that I'm old enough to do what I want to do; they won't complain if I watch tv during the weeks upto/during the exams, but if I end up with crap grades, at least I'd have no one to blame but myself.

    If my parents did that i would stright away fail cause i just do the opposite:p:
    At least it wouldnt work cause i also need self-motivation more than anything.
    Failing your self and it blaiming your parents is not the idea but the constent nagging will drive you crazy , untill you subconciously make the soul purpose of ur existence defy them.
    If my parents would stop nagging im sure my grades would go up substantialy.

    I really do need self-motivation as well. Instead of studying now - I'm on TSR! It's just so annoying... I guess what you can do is set little goals in the beginning, then bigger later on. Reward yourself. Do a break every 1 1/2 hours for 5 minutes or something similar to that. I think that'll somehow help...
