    Throughout my A-Levels I have been consistent with my grades and keeping the top marks, however with 7 weeks left before study leave, I've turned into an absolute mess. I am demotivated (hence procrastination 101 on here) and just cannot be bothered anymore, I've been so stressed and for the first time I actually cried about German because my teacher kept telling me I was doing my speaking answers wrong...then shouts at me for doing them again according to how she wants them done. I feel like hitting the roof, I was ill with the flu for two weeks so missed two weeks off of school, come back to find I miss the deadline for the German AS resit because I wanted to pull my UMS up, but now I've been told that it's too late...unless I want to fork out £40 late fee.

    Usually this stuff doesn't bother me and I'm usually the most chilled out person in the world, I NEVER get stressed over exams- but suddenly it's all going downhill and I just want to pack it all up...anyone else feeling this way or am I being the only melodramatic fool here?

    The thought of moving to Newcastle in September is getting me through it. Think about the future ahead of you, might motivate you a little more

    See the thing is... I have withdrawn my application and reapplying to do Law. The school are angry at me over it but I felt rushed into a decision about my choices so early on. So now I'm stressing about University. I've made some dumbass decisions

    I totally understand... I feel the same about my English (seems nothing like German but my class and teacher this year are a complete disaster. The teacher has a degree in Drama for christs sake and he's left to teach all of the course plus all of our course works dropped at least a grade thanks to his marking)... My whole class was panicking since before but only now feel as though I want to set anything to do with English on fire (I'm usually so chilled and organised)...
    I'm hoping to set my path of revision and notes straight during Easter but you never know how that will go since I said that about last half term
    I found one way to reduce procrastination is not to row yourselves into big tasks (essays, coursework) because thats boring and you know you dont want to do it. Instead, start slowly like making some revision plans (I wrote a sectioned checklist for revision notes to help me organise work slightly more and it already makes it look like I have less to do...) and gradually do bigger tasks (with regular breaks) and it gradually makes you feel more positive... Then feeling positive makes you more motivated and so on it all works out in the end
