    Motivation <> Desirability

    If you want to find some motivation you need to find something you desire. The rest is a piece of cake.

    Think of rich fame power, success, then I think I don't want to end up as a chav.

    You tried revising with friends? (Can either work really well or you just get distracted, but then at least you're hanging out with your mates )

    I find that the hardest part is getting started, and getting into the 'zone'. You gotta find somewhere where you're not distracted. Sit in the garden maybe? (If the weathers good)

    I usually work best under pressure. If I think of an exam that I have coming up and then if I start thinking about finding it difficult and struggling, then I feel a bit pressured and that pushes me to work.
    Also, try and hide your phone/laptop/tv remote so that you are not temped to use them, else you will just keep procrastinating

    If i don't perform well in academics, I won't get a good job. If I don't get a good job I won't be able to marry the girl I want to. Don't exactly would want to stick another person with me in poverty, i'll be okay living alone in it though.

    So that motivates to a great extent to work.

    For my A2 exams last year I stuck pictures of the Uni I wanted to go to (Nottingham), an Audi TT and a mansion on the wall above my desk.

    Whenever I became de-motivated, I looked at those pictures and thought about where I wanted to be/what I wanted to do in the future. Seemed to do the trick
