    Well as the title says really, I have exams starting on the 15th and after failing last year at A levels when I worked my arse off, I lack any motivation! I just want to sit and read my own books, not school work. I just don't care. I want to be happy not stressed revising, this stress in the passed has flared up my OCD, to a severe state and has given me weekly panic attacks!

    well if you worked hard last year, you'll know the content pretty well already so it won't be as hard for you this year.

    I'm sure there are load of people feeling like this and I felt like this for a bit but your lucky as at least you have a second chance. You worked hard last time but failed but whose to say you won't suceed this time also this time you know the format/ what to expect sort of. There is plenty of time to relax after alevels just try really hard, its so easy to give up on yoruself especially when there is loads to do but you are stronger than that

    This is exactly how I feel, I am especially stressed due to the added pressure of having to meet uni offers. But ultimately, in order to summon the necessary motivation to do well, you have to remind yourself that by doing little or no work, you will be doing yourself a great injustice. At the end of the day, there's only a few months left of school, and if you work to the best of your ability, at least then you can say you tried your best, and knowing you tried as hard you could, even if you don't do as well as you'd like, should give you some peace of mind, whereas doing nothing will probably stress you out more.

    Good luck with your A-Levels and I'm sorry you're feeling this way!

    Just try and find out what works for you. Maybe a schedule that you make yourself stick to, or just find a time of day that you can feel most motivated to work at. For me it's late at night, which everyone says is the worst time, but it works for me.
    Also, try and remove all distractions, if that means sitting in the spare room with no phone or laptop, so be it. Just focus.
    You've learnt the hard way that this won't get you anywhere. Don't stress about revising, and definitely don't stress about stressing!

    On a side note, if it's all too much already, I'm maybe thinking that uni isn't for you.

    I've been feeling like that for the past few months, although I passed my A-Level first time. Just plough through it, you'll eventually get there. I'm having to do that for these Jan exams coming because you mean nothing in the world without qualifications (Without sounding mean). I work in retail atm and definitely do NOT want to do this for the rest of my life. Think of university and the diverse ppl you will meet there

    How many years left for you to finish the school? Just don't give up so easily, at least finish the school. I know some people who hated school but after some time had to go back to adult learning centres to get basic education. Honestly, it's much easier to learn at school in the UK compared to the education system where I came from You don't have to go to uni, you could choose higher education at college or start an apprenticeship to get experience needed to get a job you like.

    Just do not give up again for all the hard work you've put during all those years

    I can kinda relate to this,
    lack of motivation and my exams start on the 9th =/
    No uni's have got back to me yet so kinda feeling a little unwanted aha. I know its super silly.
    Still revising my arse off - (not that it feels like anything is sinking in)
    But the hope of Uni in sept is pushing me a little...

    Feel better soon x

    It's okay, I know the feeling and no it isn't a very good one. Just think about it this way...in a few weeks time you'll be able to read your own books and wake up late and go where you like without fitting revision slots in. It's worth the wait. You just have a tiny little hurdle called 'exam period' that you need to cross...after that, you're free (temporarily).

    I am in EXACTLY the same position as you but the important thing is to pick yourself up for the time being and face these exams with the knowledge that after that you can relax as much as you like. It'll be over before you know it so must stick it out.
